LIEUTENANT COLONEL HAROLD E. MITCHELL Gives Testimony to Balloon Satellites

Space and Missile Systems Center Los Angeles Air Force Base, California SMC/HO Oral History Program Interview With LIEUTENANT COLONEL HAROLD E. MITCHELL CORONA PROGRAM, October 2003,

“Mulcahy: Did the public ever see these Genetrix gondolas and think they were UFOs?

Mitchell: I never heard of any reports of that nature, if there were any. There could have been. I don’t know. You know, it’s been so long since that operation. I don’t recall any newspapers that might have said that these were UFOs. I know you could see the balloon very easily from the ground. It looked about like a silver dollar during the daytime, because you couldn’t see anything attached to it.” (16-17)
