Reflection of Light Is Cited To Explain Flying Objects

DALLAS. August 4 (AP) -- Dale Milford, a radio-television weatherman, said today he believed he had found the source of a large number of the flying objects reported in recent days.

Mr. Milford, meteorologist for station WFAA, said that an airplane flight today had confirmed his theory that the objects are the reflection of light from a warmer layer of air between two cooler layers, called an inversion. Inversions can be seen by weather bureau radar.

Mr Milford said that during the flight he saw what could be called a flying object. He said it was the reflection of a star.

He said "the object" moved back and forth and changed direction horizontally, then remained stationnary for two minutes.
