If anyone can help with this, we would sure appreciate it.
In 1945 my father was stationed at Luke Field in
Phoenix, AZ. Some time before Roosevelt's death (April?)
he and many other soldiers observed a bright orb in the sky
that was very large. It was broad daylight and the sky was
The orb was visible for a long period of time but
did not move much if at all. This would lead one to
believe that it might have been Venus, however , even
as large as Venus can seem in the sky, this was larger.
After sending P 40's and P 38's to find it, the
military decided it was Venus.
If anyone has any information on this sighting,
