Flying Saucers' Reported From 39 States, But Seem to be Concentrated Here.
City is Baffled By Dazzling Display of Spooky Discs.
The strange things that have been in night skies since June 25, were over Birmingham last night.
On one thing everyone who has seen the mysterious objects agree they are round, saucer-like. After that every story differs. Each of the hundreds of callers who reported witnessing the baffling sky demonstrations here last night had a different version of what they say
Some said the objects were large, some small. They were moving at great speed. They were suspended in the air. There was sound along with their movements. They moved noiselessly through the black sky. They were at great distance from the Earth. They had fallen to the ground. They were in perfect formation. They were colliding with each other.
But whatever the things are that set the nation along since the first reported 12 days ago by a man in Washington State, they definitely were over the Magic City last night. It seems, in fact, that more Birmingham residents saw the objects than in any either place.

September 27, 1947
While driving between Ellensburg and Seattle, Washington at around 3:30 pm on May, 5 1947 the man sighted a silver object flying across the sky. It was also seen by a convict chauffeur and another unnamed person. This object went into a nose dive and they thought it would crash.
The witnesses were about 20 to 30 miles away from the object when they sighted it.
They stated the object was traveling at an excessively high rate of speed and when it disintegrated it was still a long way from the Earth.
The Bureau was requested by the Air Forces Intelligence to assist in attempting to arrive at an explanation of the above phenomena (Flying Saucers).
The Air Forces indicated that the alleged sightings of flying discs might have been made by individuals of Communist sympathies for the purpose of causing mass hysteria in the United States over the fear of a secret Russian weapon.
Along with these reports there are many more newspaper clippings that deal with UFO sightings as well as many, many witness accounts of UFO sightings.
Using the freedom of information act in the U.S. we were able to obtain many documents from different branches of the Government and the military. Some of these declassifed files show interesting facts and research about aliens, flying saucers, and UFOs.
