On This Day in Weird, December 23...
1909: Thousands watch a mysterious "airship" passing over Boston, Marlboro, Framingham, Natick, Needham, and Newton, Massachusetts, sometimes decreasing altitude to an estimated 100 feet above ground, then rising and moving on. Some witnesses claim they see two men aboard the craft, one standing forward near its "headlight," a second in the rear. The ship reaches Newton shortly after 7 p.m. and hovers over the city for 25 minutes before departing.
