Abstract

On Monday morning, July 24, 1950, 12-year old Jim Ogle was on a small boat in the Banana River near South Merritt Island, Florida. He was cast netting for mullet to use for fishing bait. A strange crackling noise caught his attention at about 10:30. Looking up to the north, he saw a contrail taking off from the ground and extending out over the ocean. He wasn’t sure what it was he had witnessed, but he knew it was unusual.
