1978 Elsberry UFO Flap



View 1978 Missouri Flap in a larger map

The UFO activity stopped abruptly in Elsberry on July 17; picked up again on July 24 in Steelville.

There were no UFO reports in any county for 6 days.  Activity resumed on July 24 in Steelville. And when it did it seemed to follow Highway 44. On July 26 reports came in from Washington and Union where the car lift case occurred. They then went back to Elsberry, Lincoln County.  The only other time there was a break in the reports was June 30 through July 6 a span of 5 days. With so much activity, why did the reports stop for days throughout the state? Where did they go?
