Roswell's Balloons (and they're not Mogul)


A paper from December 1947 outlines what happened to meteorological balloons in the Roswell event time-frame.

David Rudiak and other Roswell-oriented researchers have provided reams of defensive material about how the Roswell incident couldn't involve Mogul balloons.

But in this paper here, Mogul balloons were not what made up the Brazel debris. The balloon pieces found were meteorological balloon bits and pieces.


N.B. The references to Clarke and Korff in this 1947 abstract are not Brit researcher David Clarke nor infamous UFO gadfly Kal Korff.


Bigfoot -- a hokey Indiana report


The ABC affiliate in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where a few RRRGroup fellows work, aired this piece, Thursday, April 25th, 2013.

Yes, it's about Bigfoot. not UFOs, but it shows what one has to deal with when media gets their hands on something out-of-the-ordinary.

(The reference, at the end is about the local weather guy, who grows a beard each summer as part of a promotion.)
