Image of the Day: June 9th

One of the "core fields' that we try to get with every document or series of documents is a date. As a result most of our documents have a date or date range associated with them. Those that don't have that information when we push to the site can be annotated by you!

Here is the "image of the day" for June 9th...

Project Blue Book - UFO Investigations » 1964 » June » Westfield, Wisconsin

Letters like this are quite common in the Project Blue Book documents. Oft times a person who saw some sort of phenomenon in the sky would write to a news outlet, like the Chicago Tribune in this document, where they would write back and refer them to the Air Force or other government agency.
