The Kenneth Arnold sighting, June 24, 1947:

Kenneth Arnold's 1950 pamphlet:

This part of my file about Kenneth Arnold's observation on June 24, 1947, in the USA, is the booklet Arnold wrote, published at his own expense in 1950, and distributed around. It does not tell about his own sighting, it tells of the early days of the flying saucer reports. Arnold can be considered to have been the first ufologist.


THIS is the second photograph print of the FLYING SAUCER given to Kenneth Arnold by Military Intelligence of the Fourth Air Force. This shows positive identification of the strange object in reference to the telephone pole and the tree on the left. The actual distance of the object from the ground when the photograph was taken could not be determined, therefore, we have no known distance on which to base its size.

Notes about this page:

This is of course one of the two photographs William A. Rhodes claimed to have taken of the flying disc he claimed he saw on July 7, 1947 in the north of Phoenix, Arizona, USA.

There are no particular reason to think they are real photos of a real flying disc. Rhodes actually did not deny that it may have been pictures of some debris carried by the wind; but more important, his credibility was shattered when it was discovered that instead of being a scientist with diplomaa from renowned institutions such as Columbia University or the George Washington univertity, and head of an independent laboratory, it was proved he never had the diplomas he claimed to have and that his lab was just some pieces of equipment in his home basement. His real job was to play piano in a nightclub.
