Joan Bird- UFO’s: Part 1
Shortly after the Second World War, the U.S. reported a flurry of aerial phenomena that came to be described as "flying saucers." Later, government investigators and others called them unidentified flying objects, or UFO’s. Despite the frequency of the sightings, the U.S. Air Force which was charged with investigating the reports, along with other scientists, tended to dismiss the sightings as other aerial phenomena such as weather balloons, birds or aircraft. But the persistence of some evidence, a Montana film in particular, has kept the issue alive.
Joan Bird, who now lives in Helena, has written a book about "Montana UFO’s and Extraterrestrials."
