Form: 97 Initial Report
July 23, 1952; Fragment / Found where map
shows the Saucers have been observed.
See map from newspaper article below showing
where the "flying saucers" have been observed on
July 20 and 26, 1952, between Herndon, VA,
and Washington, D.C. The map shows
sightings near Vienna, Virginia. This is where
the 'Alvin Moore' "Fragment" was found.
also show below.
I was just checking the maps for that area on www.mapquest.com
and those tracks
shown on the newspaper article take the saucers very near the Pentagon
at Arlington, VA. then on to Boiling AFB and if you continue, on to
Andrews AFB. I think this may have been a show of force, the Shot
Across The Bow.
Compare to Paragraph 24 part (a), on
page 7 of this document at the bottom of page.
