UFO Article (Blog): “A Forgotten Piece of 1959 Research”

The article focuses mainly on two UFO polls conducted by John Lester of the Newark Star-Ledger:

Quote from the article:
“The mention was about a poll that Lester made of 50 commercial pilots about what they felt about UFOs and the way the government was handling the subject and treating the witnesses.

Lester did a much more ambitious poll than the one with the pilots. Taking a full month to accomplish it, he contacted 1000 government radar operators around the US and asked several questions: Had they seen UFOs? Did their radars track them? Were they ‘real targets’? What did they think about all this? Lester’s results were far more stunning [for me] than the pilot responses.”

At B, some are seen over the White House and Capitol. At C, they appear over Andrews Air Force Base. At D, one UFO tracks an airliner. At E, one is seen to make a sharp right angle turn.
