View of the southeast horizon from N-7
The view of the southeast horizon from N-7. During the
times of the UFO observations on 24 October 1968, the star Sirius was ascending
to the right. Bear in mind, if the reported overcast from 9,000 to 25,000 feet
also extended to the south; it is unlikely these stars would be visible. For
example, Smith at O-1 noted in his AF-117 that it was “completely overcast” and
no stars were visible (4).
