Washington carousel, 1952

Added Fri, 16/12/2016

This photo is considered the material evidence of the case, called the "Washington carousel" - one of the most popular cases of UFO sightings which occurred from 12 to 29 July 1952 over Washington (Washington D.C.). It lead to almost every mention of this event. It is considered that it shows a group of UFOs hovering over the heart of the American nation - the Capitol.

Actually it is a reconstruction of events for all the same photos that appear in the top right corner of the image.


Probably, this program was used in the video, which appeared three years earlier:
