On June 24, 1947, pilot Kenneth Arnold was flying over Mount Rainier Washington when he observed a group of unusual flying objects that he could not identify. Sharing news of his sighting when he landed shortly afterward, Arnold's account soon made it into American newspapers, and even came to the attention of the United States government. In short, the era of the "Flying Saucer" had begun, giving rise to one of the most controverisal topics in recent history: unidentified flying objects.
This week on The Micah Hanks Program, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Arnold's sighting, we are joined by author and historian Charles Lear, whose new book, The Flying Saucer Investigators, chronicles the history of the researchers who went in search of answers to this enduring mystery of the space age.
