It's a bird, it's a plane, it's...?

It was circa late 1950's when eyes in Pocomoke City and elsewhere on the lower Eastern Shore were looking skyward. Many sightings were made both in the sky and then on the ground. 

What were they looking for?  What did they find?  Details coming up Tuesday (10/9) here at The Pocomoke Public Eye.
