Friday, April 24, 1964. Lonnie Zamora, a police officer in Socorro, New Mexico, was chasing a speeding motorist when he heard a loud roaring noise, accompanied by what he described as a peculiar flame in the sky. As he watched the object descend, the officer veered off the highway onto a gravel road, and went to investigate. What happened next resulted in one of the most widely-discussed UAP incidents of all time. 

This week on The Micah Hanks Program, we retrace the footsteps of Project Blue Book investigators as we reexamine what has since been called the Air Force's "best case", and the mystery surrounding two individuals Zamora observed outside the craft, a curious red "insignia" emblazoned on the object, and the theories about what, precisely, the object could have been.
