location: Orlando, Flordia
date: June 1965
time: Midday
sighting: Thousands of people witnessed the sighting 
of "flash-bulb" popping type UFO's around the launch 
of Gemini 9 in June 1965 at Cape Canaveral, Florida. 
We could see the flashes and we heard the crackling 
and the sonic booms from as far away as Orlando (75 
miles). I have never forgotten this event because it 
was VERY STRANGE and like no other launch we 
witnessed. I was in the 5th grade at Englewood 
Elementary School in Orlando. Our teachers always 
brought us out to watch the NASA rockets go up. It 
was reported that the Astronauts saw the UFO's in 
the clouds around the rocket as it was launched. 
Thousands reportedly witnessed this event and it was 
reported in all the local newspapers at the time. I 
have been searching for news articles from central 
Florida relative to this event on the Internet. I 
found a small mention on the Internet of the Gemini 
9 Astronauts reported UFO's followed them from the 
launch pad, but I have not been able to find actual 
newspaper articles from that date. I wonder if 
anybody else that was alive in Cenral Florida at the 
time remembers this.
