Coast Guard UFO photo from 1952 (Video)

This is one of the most famous photos taken during the American flying saucer wave of 1952. It was taken by Shell Alpert, a U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) seaman stationed at the USCG weather office in Salem, Massachusetts, on July 16. The USCG briefly investigated the case and issued a press release. Afterwards, the original negative was sent to Project Blue Book for analysis. The official air force report stated, “The photo was taken with a 4/5 Busch Pressman Camera . . . loaded with 4/5 super XX cut film. The photographer observed several lights which seemed to be wavering. He observed the lights for 5 or 6 seconds and grabbed the camera which had been on a nearby table.”
