She was seen by a middle-aged couple that was strolling about 100 yards behind her.

Date: December 30, 1946
Location: Morro Bay, California
Time: 5:35 p.m
Summary: Miss ??? [Ella]Young and a friend were on high ground that curves southwards from Morro Bay. The sun had just gone down when, suddenly, a dark object appeared in the sky. It came forward and grew more distinct. On the golden sky it looked very black. It came forward head-on and had a bat-like appearance, owing to the curvature of its wings. She wasn’t sure if there were motions at the extreme tip of the wings; but the strange machine seemed to stand still for several minutes, and its form was very distinct. Suddenly, it either lowered itself towards the horizon, or the bank of cloud-mist made an upward movement (maybe both movements occurred) for the machine passed behind the cloud and did not reappear. Immediately afterwards, a great flush of color spread over the sea.”
