View of "Lubbock Lights"
(Original Caption) Among the many reports of "Flying Saucers", one of the most unexplainable phenomena is the "Lubbock Lights", (above) photographed at Lubbock, Texas, by 19-year old Carl Hart, Jr., on August 30, 1951. Appearing in the April 7th issue of Life Magazine these pictures of the lights show them apparently flying in formation. The U.S. Air Force, which has incorporated investigation of these matters into a routine intelligence function, says there is "no reason to believe that any of the aerial phenomena commonly described as "Flying Saucers" are caused by a foreign power or constitute a clear and present danger for the U.S. or its citizens.
