Publisher's Summary

This dramatic program provides an overview of the state of UFO research in the 1960s. The UFO attack on Washington, DC, in August of 1952 became known as "The Summer of the Saucers" when numerous UFOs were seen - and many tracked on radar - for several weeks over the United States capitol. They repeatedly violated restricted airspace, including flying near and/or over the White House and the Capitol Building at rates of speed in excess of 7,000 miles an hour!

In these two interview excerpts you'll hear Al Chop, the Pentagon's public relations officer at the time, give an overview about the events, followed by newsman John Dailey's interview of James Ritchie of the Civil Aeronautics Association, who seems at a loss to explain the strange incidents.

Also included is a 1966 radio interview with Bill Donovan of the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP) during it's heyday. He discusses misidentifications vs. valid sightings, pilot reports, Air Force restriction of publication of sightings by military personnel (and even commercial pilots) and a discussion of foreign sightings (Russia, Chile, and Argentina) and how they're handled by their respective governments. Donovan then goes into detail about yet another astronaut UFO sighting - namely James McDivitt's sighting of (and report on) a "bogey" during his Gemini IV space flight. There's also a brief discussion of changing geographic patterns on the moon and the possible use of the moon as a defense base either by the US or Russia, as well as the 1955 statement by General Douglas McArthur that "the next war would be interplanetary".
