High Strangeness: UFO Pride!

UFO Pride!

As I've mentioned here before, the true measure of any portrayal of Dr. J. Allen Hynek's groundbreaking UFO research comes down to one question: "Would Dr. Hynek be proud of this?"

Well, that question is being put to the test by the story posted at SYFY.com this week previewing the History Channel's upcoming TV series Blue Book, about Dr. Hynek's work with the Air Force's UFO research project. The article includes an amazing image that I just have to comment on...

Take a good look at the photo below. Did this ever happen to Dr. J. Allen Hynek in real life?


The answer is no. Dr. Hynek never found himself in a dark government lab, staring at an alien "grey" floating in a tank. Not even once. But, this is how the producers of Blue Book have decided to "jazz up" the true story of Dr. Hynek's UFO work with the Air Force.

"We were pretty good about sticking with history," declares the show's creator in the SYFY.com article.

Oh, okay, that's reassuring. Because when I saw this picture of Hynek meeting an alien, I thought maybe they had been pretty bad about sticking with history. Nice to know I was wrong!

I bet Dr. Hynek would be proud as heck.
