Fringe Science and the 1964 Socorro UFO Sighting

Certain UFO "researchers" discount the balloon and/or hoax explanation for Police Officer Lonnie Zamora's eye-witness account of a UFO in Socorro, New Mexico, in April 1964.

One of the factors in the dismissal is the "fact" that Officer Zamora's object (or craft) flew against the wind and thus could not be a balloon.
