Everyone in my family remembers the nightly sightings of 5 orange cigar shaped objects that appeared in the sky over several days in the summer? 0f 1960-63? The entire neighborhood stood at the end of their driveways and stared at the sky for hours.We seem to remember it was on the front page,then later explained as "temperature inversion"? Something about smog and the airport lights?
