There is an extensive article at phantoms and monsters about the real battle of Los Angeles – the air raid of 1942.
The army was firing at something in the sky, an object that was apparently ‘glowing’. They were so serious about the incident that they blacked-out the entire city and fired for hours into the sky.
What were they firing at? An enemy blimp? Or a craft of alien design?
If they were firing at an alien craft, then perhaps there is a link to incidents like Roswell. This happened 1942, Roswell was 5 years later.
Connected? Did they find a way to shoot one of these things down?
