Why May 4??


I understand how we know the event occured at 1:20 pm.

What I DON'T understand is how it is known that it occured on May 4. And for that matter, 1961. The year could perhaps be deduced from the time table, but the day??

That is a very good question. Perhaps that's the day Arlene found the key to room 10?

I have wondered that myself. My guess is that there is a newspaper object lying around somewhere.

There are more exotic possibilities. Maybe the TV was tuned to a particular channel and someone looking through the Polaroid recognized a news event showing on the TV screen. Or maybe Eddie had a calendar out and they could tell it from that. If there was anything in the room that specified the date at the moment of the event, however miniscule, that would take care of it.

That's it. It was the newspaper which is an object per the Legion's list.

So, a Gallup newspaper dated May 4 1961. It probably exists somewhere. It would be haaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrd to find.

well if you can get your hands on the micro film you can make copies of the paper. and it might be one reason we have not seen the news paper in the show because they could not find one.

After re-watching parts of the show Karl says "first known date of existence" was May 4, 1961.

So I'm guessing that was the day they found the first object.
