LocationMoose Factory, Quebec Canada

Summary: Locals reported different incidents. Three Indians reported seeing a “water going object” which they identified as the top of a submarine in James Bay near the mouth of the Moose River. A strange red light hung almost stationary over the area. Other Indians observed two “airplanes” one large one small, which stood still in the sky. Three huge explosions shook every building over a period of two minutes. Later several Indians encountered “strange white men” which ran to hide in the forest when observed. The Royal Mounted Police was notified.

Summary:Oct. 12, 1950; Knoxville, Tenn. (BBU)
1:25 p.m. A military radar unit at Knoxville Airport suddenly detected 11, “and possibly more,” unidentified targets moving over the restricted flight zone at Oak Ridge. This time action was taken. At 11:30, the radar station commander scrambled an F-82 fighter. It was in the air nine minutes later. The fighter was vectored toward two targets and, according to the radar, closed with the targets, but the pilot saw nothing. Ground observations also failed to detect anything in the sky. No unusual objects were seen visually or on radar for the next two days. Then the “dam broke.” On October 15, at 3:25 PM, three Oak Ridge security guards and a caretaker saw an exceedingly strange object. (McDonald list)

Summary:Oct. 12, 1950; Oak Ridge, TN
Late Thursday, a saucer-looking object was observed over the K-25 area near the NEPA Project area. The object was described as round, as big as a four room house, silver in color, and had a blister at the top of the saucer. The object also had windows. The object rose slowly for about 100 feet, moved forward, rose again about the same distance and then it was gone at a high rate of speed. (Source: BB files/The Knoxville Journal, October 26, 1950

Date: Oct. 16, 1950
Location: Oak Ridge, Tennessee
Time: 3:20 (1520) EST. 
Summary: “While Special Agent William S. Price was present, a report came from the AEC Patrol to the radar station relating that a Trooper Isabell and four civilian employees at Oak Sidge had observed a “silver disc” hovering over the K-25 Plant in the controlled area. The radar screen was able to pick up an indistinct target about every three (3) or four (4) sweeps of the indicator. An F-82 fighter plane was sent to attempt an intercept of the object. The airborne radar of the fighter picked up a target which later proved to be a light aircraft. The ground observers reported that the F-82 passed under the “silver disc” while it was in pursuit of the light plane. The crew of the fighter observed nothing unusual. Nothing further was learned of the sightings.”

Date: Oct. 20, 1950
Location: Oak Ridge, Tenn.
Time: 4:55 p.m. 
Summary: Not listed in either BB Unknown list, but has aspects that may ultimately classify it as an unknown. Larry Riordan, the Superintendent of Security for the X-10 control zone became a witness. While driving to a residential area he saw an object which he thought at first was a balloon which had lost its “basket.” It was generally round, appeared to “come together at the bottom in wrinkles (rather indistinct and something was hanging below.” It appeared to be 8 to 10 feet long and lead or gunmetal colored. It didn’t seem to be moving but, since he was traveling and only saw it for a number of seconds, he couldn’t be sure. He was sure it wasn’t a weather balloon, although he thought it might have been a gas bag balloon launched by the nearby University of Tennessee Agricultural Research Farm. On the same day at 3:27 PM the radar unit at the Knoxville airport detected radar targets near the area of Mr. Riordan’s sighting and scrambled a fighter plane. The pilot searched the area for about an hour and a half, which included the time of Mr. Riordan’s sighting, and found nothing.
