Based on declassified FBI documents, The Maury Island Incidenttells the incredible, tragic and forgotten story of Harold Dahl, who on June 21, 1947, alleged a UFO sighting over Puget Sound, WA. This event sparked “the summer of the saucers,” the modern era of UFO obsession, the first appearance of “Men in Black” and a governmental battle over UFO sighting jurisdiction reaching directly to FBI Executive Director J. Edgar Hoover.
