Fifty years ago — Aug. 14, 1965 — the DNT reports sightings of unidentified flying objects over Duluth. The article’s title, by the way is …
… which leads one to believe there was another story on the subject in previous days, but careful eyes couldn’t find one in the Aug. 1-13 editions.
The Aug. 14 article reads kind of like it was a weekly column that might run next to marriage announcements or property transactions.
Miss Kathy Skoglund of 2713 W. 2nd St. told The News-Tribune she and her friends saw an object “a little bigger than a star” moving slowly across the sky about 10:15 Friday.
Mrs. Joanne Johnson of 19 E. 13th St., said she watched a similar object over her home for about 15 minutes about 10:25. “It wasn’t moving in a straight path,” when it finally disappeared behind a cloud cover, she said.
The object Mrs. Carol McDougall, of 9223 Vinland St., saw was moving northwest and traveling in a downward, erratic path when it disappeared behind some trees. She first sighted it at 10:15 and watched it for 20 minutes.
Clarence Noel, of 731A Kelly Circle, an Air Force technical sergeant, estimated the object he saw about 10:45 was traveling about 800 miles an hour. “It was moving east to west and disappeared in a few seconds,” he said.
Mr. and Mrs. Henry B. Griffin reported seeing a star-like object in the skies about 11:05 p.m. Thursday.
