In recent years it has been suggested that the witnesses saw a blimp. Reasons for rejecting that explanation based on the sighting details have been presented in the Appendix of the article at: http://brumac.8k.com/Rogue/RogueRiver2.htm However, those reasons were not good enough for "rational skeptics" who pointed out that there was, indeed, a Goodyear blimp in operation along the west coast in the spring of 1949 and hence it was, at least, physically possible that the blimp was in the sighting area at the time (and hence the witnesses saw a blimp!). Without knowledge of the operations/flight schedules of this blimp there was no way to prove beyond a doubt that it wasn't near the mouth of the Rogue River at about 4 PM on that date. Until Now! Thanks to the effort of Steven Pyatt and with the help of the Goodyear blimp operations staff, the log of the only known blimp that could have caused the sighting has been retrieved from the archives and the pages showing the locations of the blimp in May and June of that year are presented in the Epilog of the article at the above web site. The log shows that the blimp was at Everett, Washington, about 390 miles from the sighting location at the time.' Blimp R.I.P. ? Listen to 'Strange Days...
