The Norwood Searchlight Incident
August 19, 1949
This is one of those older cases that doesn't show up very often in the literature.
And most people really don't understand what happened in Norwood in August
of 1949, or especially in the month of October. This wasn't a cloud or weather
balloon caught in a searchlight. It was much more complicated. The following
is from the NICAP UFO Evidence (1964), page 88:
|4. Norwood, Ohio, searchlight case. Rev. Gregory Miller, Norwood,
Ohio, in the presence of other witnesses, with help of Norwood police
officer, obtained 16 mm black and white movies of a large disc hovering
in a searchlight beam. The disc emitted "two distinct groups of triangular-shaped
objects." (CRIFO Newsletter, Vol. I, No. 5, August 6, 1954). One of a
series of well-witnessed sightings logged by Army searchlight operator,
Sgt. Donald R. Berger. Three 25 foot rolls of movie film were exposed,
using a Hugo Meyer F-19-3 camera with telephoto lens; also several still
photographs with a Speed-Graphic and 14 inch Wallensach telephoto lens,
the best of which were submitted to Time-Life and reportedly never
returned. One photograph reproduced in "Inside Saucer Post. . .3-0 Blue,"
by L. H. Stringfield, Cincinnati, 1957.
If you want the full story, you need to read what Leonard Stringfield,
himself, reported in his publication, "Inside Saucer Post. . .3-0 Blue."
