UFO Expert Tracks Flatwoods Monster Case!

  • The amazing headline that day in 1952 wasn't from Amazing Stories, that science fiction magazine. 
  • Instead the headline — "Saucer Talk in 4 States" — appeared on Page 2 in the Sept. 13, 1952 edition of the Daytona Beach Evening News. 
  • The Associated Press story, datelined Baltimore, reported that "a fiery object that streaked through the night sky with a 'great greenish white light' stirred 'flying saucer' talk among residents of four states from Maryland to Tennessee last night ... Persons throughout Virginia saw what they variously described as 'a big star,' 'a flying saucer' and something 'like a flaming jet plane.' " 
  • The AP story also appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe and dozens of other newspapers. 
  • But the story was about to get more amazing, even downright weird...
