Welcome back to my blog about balloons, rocket ships, airplanes, space travel, Star Wars, sci-fi, and everything about flying! My friend and illustrator of my book used to see a star out of his window above Fort Dix when he was my age. It was too low in the sky to be a star and too high to be a street light on a hill in the distance. He said he had seen the star in the summer from the time his parents moved in their house in 1976 and he seen it the next year also. Then the summer of 1978 it did not return. When he was in High School he heard someone tell a tall tale about an alien getting shot trying to climb a fence between Fort Dix and Maguire Air Force Base. He did not believe him at first, but then he told him the alien got shot in January 5 days before his birthday in 1978. Then he scratched his head. Well here is a retired major talking about that alien.
