50 missiles taken out by UFO?
And that page goes into detail about reports of a cigar shaped craft being in the vicinity of the base where the missiles went down.
This story also points to this story from the Atlantic:
Atlantic- missiles go down due to hardware failure
This story from a "reputable" source states that the missiles could not be communicated with due to hardware failure.
The standard debunk is that this failure is due to banal hardware failure and after the fact the UFO fictionalists built some UFO lore around the actual event.
BTW, the original story is in the blog section and is not an official Herald article, but saying so gives it the aire of legitimacy.
