Masujiro Kiru was going through his father's photo album from the China Campaign just before WWII when he found a photograph of a flying object. His father, now deceased, had bought the picture from a Tientsien street photographer, apparently right after it was taken. In the photograph one can see a low-domed disc-shaped object approaching a few hundred feet above the heads of the people, many of whom have stopped to look and some of whom are seen pointing up at the UFO.

An Imperial Japanese Sally bomber aircraft, on a mission over the Sea of Japan, was approached by a small dark spherical object which flew around and between the aircraft in the formation. An alert gun-cameraman was able to snap one photograph of the small object in a close trail behind the neighboring aircraft. It appeared to be not much larger than a basketball, but certainly seemed to be operating under intelligent control.

February 25, 1942 - US Military Fires On UFO Over Los Angeles!

Known as the Battle of Los Angeles, the details of this remarkable UFO encounter are such that Rense.com has produced extensive reporting on the subject for over 3 years, as more and more evidence and information come in from researchers and those enthralled with the event.

 

"Los Angeles Times" staff photographers snapped several photographs of 15 or more silvery UFOs in night searchlight beams. The objects were circular in shape and somewhat luminous. 1430 rounds of anti-aircraft artillery shells were fired during the one hour observation. Nothing was shot down. Witnesses included searchlight crews, gun crews and thousands of spectators.
