December 17, 1969

On December 17, 1969, Secretary of the Air Force, Robert C. Seamans, Jr., closed the book on Project “Blue Book”. Project Blue Book was the Air Force’s 17-year study of UFOs and the study examined over 12,000 separate sightings. Secretary Seamans said that the vast majority of the sightings was just swamp gas from a weather balloon that was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus. Except for the sightings in South Georgia around the Albany area. That was Ripsorck Epsilom 14 of Gliese 832 getting drunk off untaxed methane and cutting doughnuts in the Piggly Wiggly parking lot. So those sightings weren’t UFOs, they were IFOs and nothing to worry about.
