Project Blue Book Coming to the History Channel

I saw a post earlier today about a new series coming to the History Channel. Project Blue Book. From the first description I thought it would be actual accounts of sightings reported to Project Blue Book between 1952 and 1969. But I was wrong. It’s Hollywoodized. Meaning they put in a lot more than what really happen to build interest. It’s just science fiction based on some science fact.

You can check out the trailer for the series at https://www.history.com/shows/project-blue-book .

A Piece of Ch. 4 from “USA: Eliminated!”

It took him several minutes to arrive at the point where the object would enter the Earth’s atmosphere. He had a few extra minutes to spare. He activated the sensors and watched for it. He didn’t have to wait long.

It entered the atmosphere without burning up. It grew bigger as it approached the saucer. Jack guided the saucer to fly along the object’s path, wishing for more time to take readings. He had mere seconds since the object would outpace the saucer. The object split in two. One was still on its original heading. The other changed course to the southwest.

1952 UFO Photograph Over Salem, Massachusetts

OSAP Archives: 1952.07.16: Salem, Massachusetts Coast Guard Photo
During the peak of the 1952 UFO flap, US Coast Guardsman Shel Alpert witnessed four brilliant lights in the sky while on duty. He called another Guardsman over to their office window who also witnessed the lights fade and brighten.
Shel Alpert quickly grabbed his camera off a nearby table, a 4/5 Busch Pressman Camera, and took one photo.
The report and photo was given to Project Bluebook who concluded the images were reflections of office ceiling lights. The conclusion, though, didn’t explain away the objects movements reported by the two men. Also, there’s a report they were watching through a screen window, not a glass window, which would not create a reflection.
Even though Bluebook concluded it as a misidentification, they classified it as “Secret.”
