Unfortunate that the PDF. Page 2 and 3 are almost unreadable.
PDF. page 2
was written on the 17 March 1950, Farmington, New Mexico:
A burst balloon has caused many a saucer scare. But the invasion of Farmington, New Mexico on Saint Patrick’s Day 1950 was one of the most dramatic.
The “saucers” began to fly about 10:15am MST and soon filled the air. In numbers estimated from 500 to thousands. For the next hour the gleaming
saucer- shaped objects soared over the town, moving erratically at incredible speeds darting in and out among each other in what one writer has called
“the greatest exhibition of magnetic flight that has ever happened I the universe.
The explanations more prosaic, A Skyhook Balloon had been launched that morning from Holloman Air Force Base near White Sands, New Mexico near
Farmington in the cold atmosphere at 6000feet the balloon had become brittle, burs and disintegrated into hundreds of tiny pieces of plastic. Light as
feathers, shining in the sunlight they floated over the town and away.
I’m unable to get a full sense out of PDF. page 3 .
I agree with NGC2736 and I would believe that that people would differ between a Skyhook Balloon
(disintegrated into hundreds of tiny pieces) and a UFO.
The explanation that the balloon became brittle is very poor. This is very unlikely for the whole balloon structure to become brittle at once. And if
so, the balloon would burst on one spot first, loosing helium and then come down in one piece…..
