Flying Discs Activate Geiger Counters
November 25, 1949
Mt. Palomar, California

Fran Ridge:
Nov. 25, 1949; Mt. Palomar, California
Flying discs first observed near the observatory at Mt. Palomar. A recording geiger counter was so activated at the times of these sightings, that it went completely off scale. Written off as an equipment malfunction, a loose fuse clip. Not only would this turn the equipment off, instead of on, the Project Record Card mentions  a radar tracking. *
