Lets Celebrate Clyde Tombaugh, Who Discovered Pluto And Saw Six UFOs Over Las Cruces, New Mexico On Aug 20, 1949. UFO Sighting News.

Clyde Tombaugh, Astronomer who discovered Pluto. 
Date of sighting: August 20, 1949 
Location of sighting: Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA

I thought we hear so much in the news about Pluto and how Clyde Tombaughs ashes are aboard the space craft, that maybe you would like to hear a tidbit of news about Clyde that you won't see in the news. His UFO sighting of 1949. SCW
Tombaugh was probably the preeminent astronomer to have reported seeing Unidentified Flying Objects. On August 20, 1949, Tombaugh saw several UFOs near Las Cruces, New Mexico. He described them as six to eight rectangular lights, stating "I doubt that the phenomenon was any terrestrial reflection, because... nothing of the kind has ever appeared before or since... I was so unprepared for such a strange sight that I was really petrified with astonishment." A similar shocked response has been reported by many other who claim to have seen mysterious aerial objects. Tombaugh was also later to report having seen three of the mysterious Green Fireballs, which suddenly appeared over New Mexico in late 1948 and continued at least through the early 1950s. In 1956 Tombaugh had the following to say about his various sightings: "I have seen three objects in the last seven years which defied any explanation of known phenomenon, such as Venus, atmospheric optic, meteors or planes. I am a professional, highly skilled, professional astronomer. In addition I have seen three green fireballs which were unusual in behavior from normal green fireballs...I think that several reputable scientists are being unscientific in refusing to entertain the possibility of extraterrestrial origin and nature."


  1. Cool, this would have been one of the first sightings of the modern era, and by a noted astronomer as well. I don't know of any astronomers who admit to seeing anything they can not explain, and yet ey spend hours looking at the night sky........
