Quick Facts

Often called “ghost rockets”, brilliant fireballs would fall from the sky, only to then ascend rapidly. A lot of these were observed in the 1940s and many people believed they were actually soviet tests of captured U-2 missiles

However, history does not account for these. Missile knowledge at the time was primitive. There were many reports of crashes. Some debris was recovered. However any results of testing on debris was kept secret and pushed under the carpet.

This phenomena has also been sighted in the United States. Observers claim to have seen a shiny, oblong structure made of aluminum with a blue flame coming out of the back.
