Fran Ridge:
The incorrect date of Aug. 25 had caused some confusion in the past and has been corrected to Aug. 24th. This incident is not listed among the original BB unknowns but is now contained in the Comprehensive Catalog of Project Blue Book Unknowns by Brad Sparks. It is also included in the list of incidents involving a nuclear connection.
