I had the good fortune to spend over an hour with Clyde Tombaugh
at his office at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces many
years ago prior to my lecture that evening at NMSU. He, of
course had had an excellent UFO sighting himself. He also had
the courage that night to attend my lecture "Flying Saucers ARE
Real"  to an overflow crowd of 1600 people. I referred one of
the questions to him. He was a true gentleman and scientist who
probably had more hours of good seeing time of the other
planets in the solar system than  any other Earthling.

His discovery of Pluto was made on February 18, 1930, while
systematically comparing photographs taken on January 23 and 29.
He was looking for a new planet as directed by Percival Lowell.
based upon calculations of the perturbations in the orbit of
Neptune.
