At the height of the flying sauce craze in the 1950s, Wyomingites saw their fair share of UFOs, and dutifully reported them to the authorities. But while most of the handful of sightings in those years were easy to explain away, a few reports in the Cowboy State still remain unexplained.
We know this because of declassified files from the U.S. Air Force's long-shuttered Project Blue Book, its program to collect UFO sighting reports from across the country. UFO enthusiast John Greenewald recently placed his collection of two decades of sighting reports in a searchable format on his website, The Black Vault.
