Narratives:


"[in spite of the reports of the month with commonplace explanations] it remained some puzzling episodes which took place in November 1896: [...] (4) A resident of Tacoma, Washington, said he watched something strange in the sky over Mount Rainier one night. For over an hour, he said, an object emitted various coloured rays, which shot out from the thing's centre in every direction like spokes of a wheel. The "object" reportedly moved about with a waving motion, swayed back and forth, and darted from one position to another. [1]
