Nov. 23, 1960: Joseph J. Cracchiolo traces a flaming object in the sky and watches it land in the 1200 block of West 120th Street. The space object turned out to be a plastic dry-cleaning bag, "with bamboo struts rigged at the open end to hold a candle," Matt Weinstock says. Also noted: A caretaker at Silver Lake Reservoir is firing shots at sea gulls -- but only to scare them.

DEAR ABBY: Why did you tell that woman she shouldn't shake her dust mop out the window?
