AT FOLSOM ALSO
The Aerial Tourists Took a Shy at the Big Dam

A telephone message from Folsom last evening stated that the air-ship also passed near that town between 6 and 7 o'clock, going in a southerly direction. Afterward it tacked to the southeast and disappeared in a dense cloud.

When seen at Folsom it seemed to be only a few hundred feet above the earth, but the night was so dark that the body of the ship could not be distinguished - nothing but one bright light. [1]
