1952 UFO Sightings Over DC

Reading a book not related to politics and read about 1952 UFO sightings over DC. Could this be true? Love the internet and yes it was true. Some info from Grey Falcon dot US:

Davidson, whose study of saucers is impressively detailed and scientific, said he believes the lights are American "aviation products"- probably "circular flying wings," using new type jet engines that permit rapid acceleration and relatively low speeds. He believes, they are either "new fighter," guided missiles, or piloted guided missiles.

He cited some of the recent jet fighters, including the Navy's new " F-4-D, which has a radical "bat-wing," as examples of what the objects might resemble.

Davidson thinks the fact that the lights have been seen in this area indicates the authorities may be ready to disclose the "new aircraft" in the near future. Previously, most of the "verified saucers" have been seen over sparsely inhabited areas, Davidson explained, and now, when they appear here, it may indicate that "secrecy" is not so important any more.

From 1947 to 1969, Americans accounted for 12,618 reports of unidentified flying objects. It was up to investigators at Ohio's Wright-Patterson Air Force Base to determine if extraterrestrial beings, in fact, had descended from space to Earth.

This work was incendiary enough to be classified. But the government bestowed a bureaucratic name just the same: "Project Blue Book". It went on until 1969. That year, the United States Air Force declared itself out of the UFO business, but not before concluding that 701 sightings remained "unidentified."

On July 10, there were more high-level meetings and FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover (1895-1972) was briefed on the alien crisis. On July 26, 1947, President Truman signed a sweeping change in the nation's structure, called THE NATIONAL SECURITY ACT (Compare this with the passing of the HR-3162 PATRIOT ACT of 2001 signed by President Bush after the 9/11 attack)
