austin tx 5:30 am april 1, 1965 clear circular craft hovering above courthouse.

I was just wondering if you or anybody knew of the sighting of the ufo on April 1st, 1965 in Austin Tx. @ 5:30 A.M.

I mean, it was in the newspaper that morning there, about a crystal clear ufo hovering above the courthouse, but when I tried to review the account later in the day, it was "hush-hush", and no more newspapers could be bought and no one seems to know anything about the first morning posting, it's like a cover up or something. The paper I bought disappeared, and no record can be located in the archives, so far as I can locate. Just very peculiar, was this a hoax for April Fools Day or what??
