LL-??-1952

In late 1952 the Sunday Times of Cape Town, South Africa, reported that a "rocket" had been seen over Table Bay. It was said to have gone straight up and then down again, but it was not clear if it came out or went into the water. A police launch searched the area since it was believed to have been a distress rocket, but there were no ships in the area.37 (There are dozens of similar reports of "distress rockets," "flares," and the like seen off many coasts.)
