Fact #1522411832

Fact | 1952

This photo is considered evidence of a case called the "Washington Carousel" (one of the most widespread cases of surveillance UFO, which took place from July 12 to July 29, 1952).

The story shown in the episode, very different from the real case. According to witnesses, the objects were not 5 and 7, they appeared only at night and were mainly observed on the radar screens. During a first appearance July 20, 1952, the objects disappeared at the approach of the aircraft of the US army. Later, on July 26, 1952, about UFO sighting reported by two pilots (civilian and military) aircraft. The pilot of a military aircraft even attempted to chase the object, with the result that they were surrounded.

The sighting of a UFO from the earth, and especially in the afternoon in Central Park Washington, is not known. The lights on the photo, which is sometimes present as physical evidence of the incident, are glare from the lightsilluminating the Capitol.

The episode begins with the arrival of the Heineken in the capital. They come with Quinn on the specified CI and place the mixture over Washington five glowing spheres. Members of the government suspect that the UFO is a new Soviet aircraft, and think about the beginning of hostilities. Quinn and Hynek trying to convince them that the Russian is innocent, but the generals in charge of the project "Blue book", inflexible. They are aiming to come up with an explanation for the appearance of the lights over the capital, to calm its inhabitants, while preparing a missile strike against the USSR. However, before you start a war, the President requires proof that the incident in the sky over Washington – this is an act of aggression from the Russian side. Hynek at a press conference said that the reason the observed phenomena of steel atmospheric vortices.

In the evening the informant conveys the Heineken and Quinn the video footage shows how one of the glowing balls explode an American rocket with a thermonuclear warhead during the test. They show the film to the defence Minister, and he understands that UFOs can't be the earth's development. When he goes to the President to show the film, his car explodes.

Over the capital again there is a group of UFOs. Quinn on the plane trying to hunt them down and destroy, but something intercepts control of his aircraft and the plane crashed. In his testimony before the Commission Quinn denies the possibility that UFOs are the development of Russian. Hynek insists on a version of the atmospheric eddies as he explains later, to avert from them the suspicion of the generals and to allow further work on the project.

The wife of the Heineken finds the telephone bugged and comes to the girlfriend-the blonde, to tell about it. That, to divert suspicion from himself, takes the authorities on her neighbor, by sending an anonymous message that he is the Communist party.

Hynek returned to his job astronomer, Quinn meets a blonde in a bar and buys her a drink.

In the final scene of the season somewhere in the snow (maybe high in the mountains) a man stops in front of a mysterious obelisk with already familiar characters. The VoiceOver talks about the possibility of the contact of civilizations.

Phenomena in artwork: UFO

Shown in a series of UFOs represent glowing spheres. They move a group of 5 objects, and develop a tremendous speed and perform maneuvers not available to terrestrial aircraft. During attack they defend themselves with force fields.

Chasing UFOs Quinn told the Commission that at some point he lost the ability to fly a plane, because his body ran from the outside ("got into his head").

Phenomena in artwork: The Alien

Themselves aliens in the episode do not show, however, contact with them is hinted at in the final scene, which shows a strange obelisk with glowing symbols on the surface. The obelisk is located in the snow (perhaps in the Arctic or high in the mountains), and the signs have already met in the series before in the context of the training of military contactees.
