A new German weapon has made its appearance on the western air front.

Airmen of the American Aif Force report that they are encountering silver
colored spheres in the air over German territory. The spheres are encoun-
tered either singly or in clusters. Sometimes they are semi-translucent.

The article is actually the New York Time's edit of the Reuter newswire transmitting a news item released by the Supreme Headquartes of the US Army reproduced underneath:

The new device, apparently an air defense weapon resembles the huge glass balls that adorn Christmas trees. There was no information available as to whatholds them up like stars in the sky, what is in them or what their purpose is supposed to be.
