Alien Daze

It all started 59 years ago when Evelyn Trent went outside to feed her rabbits. When she saw something unusual in the sky- round and metallic- she yelled for her husband. Paul Trent came armed with a camera and took the now famous picture (above). For more about the Trents and their famous photo see these articles.

As I write this downtown McMinnville is hosting the UFO Festival, complete with speakers, parade, and alien pet costume contest. It’s a fun event and a on a beautiful day!If your interest in aliens and UFOs runs deeper than just green skin deep, here are some library items that will be of interest:

Shoot Them Down! The flying saucer wars of 1952 by Frank C. Feschino Jr.

Unsolved Extraterrestrial Mysteries by David Southwell and Sean Twist.

Confirmation: the hard evidence of aliens among us by Whitley Strieber.

  1. Hi,
    That’s really cool that you have those books at the library, especially Shoot Them Down.
    I hope they get a lot of use.
