May 10, 1961, Appleton Post-Crescent
I reported here two years ago about a UFO sighting in 1966.  At that time, the strange object was seen over Appleton Road:
One wonders what young Mr. Strebe endured after, as they say, his cover was blown. No newspaper today would have given out his address, and chances are he would have endured enough abuse over social media that a disclosed address might have been the least of his worries.  But that would be today's reaction.  Of course, different times bring different attitudes, so perhaps it was no big deal and I am comparing apples to oranges.  After all, it WAS in the midst of the Space Age and alien invasion movies had been a staple of the preceding decade, so all eyes were on the skies.
