1566 Michel de Notredame or Nostradamus died.  Nostradamus is best known for his book of prophecies 'Centuries Asrtologiques' published in 1555. However, in the same year he also published 'Excellent er Moult Utile Opuscule a tous necessaire qui desirent avoir connaissance de plusieurs exq uises recettes' (‘An excellent and most useful little work essential to all who wish to become acquainted with some exquisite recipes’).

1843 An alligator reportedly fell from the sky during a thunderstorm in Charleston, South Carolina. This certainly tops those reports of frogs and fishes raining down! (Alligator Recipes)

1869 The brig 'Novelty' returns to Boston, from Matanzas, with 84,075 gallons of molasses, shipped on a new principle, not in casks, but in bulk, in large tanks, and in excellent condition. (Molasses Trivia & Facts)

1926 Emile Coue died. A French pharmacist, he was an advocate of autosuggestion. He suggested repeating the following sentence 15 to 20 times in the morning and evening: "Every day, and in every way, I am becoming better and better."

1931 Stephen Moulton Babcock died. Babcock developed a test to measure the fat content of milk, which helped improve the quality of commercial dairy production.
  (Milk Trivia and Facts)

1932 Dave Thomas, founder of Wendy's Hamburger chain was born (died Jan 8, 2002). (Hamburger Trivia & Facts)

1947 An identified (weather balloon) or unidentified (alien spacecraft) object crashes near Roswell, New Mexico.

1982 Larry Walters used 45 helium filled weather ballons tied to an aluminum lawn chair to ascend to 16,000 feet above Long Beach. Several very perplexed commercial airline pilots reported seeing Larry sitting in his lawn chair in the sky, to the Long Beach airport. The FAA fined him $4,000, but later settled for $1,500.
