Object Moves Vertically During Missile Launch
Sept. 7, 1961
Cape Canaveral, Florida

Brad Sparks:
Sept. 7, 1961; Cape Canaveral, Florida (BBU)
Object moving vertically in tracking scope during missile launch. Military source. AF evaluation: "...star Gamma Piscium.". (Hynek UFO Rpt p. 44) Hynek: "Gamma Piscium is a relatively faint star, and quite stationary. It is absurd to think that a person professionally qualified to track missile launches would be puzzled by one particular star out of a great many."
Dan Wilson:
8:37 p.m. local time. For this case the Project Blue Book Master Index for 1-15 SEPTEMBER 1961 SIGHTINGS, does say of the observer; Tracking RADAR. The PROJECT 10073 RECORD CARD lists the type of observation as Ground-Radar. (Dan Wilson)
