Summary: Three miles south of the town, on a farm, three men were painting a farrowing barn. There was a jet-like roar. All the witnesses (one later was to become a Catholic priest) agreed it was a flying saucer that stopped in mid-air and began to lower itself toward the ground like a helicopter. Then it stopped, remained there for 20-seconds, ascended to original height and went west, then east, then west, each time making a loud sonic boom, and swept toward the southwest with extreme speed.

Smith and Lt. Donald J. Hemer, located 10 miles SW of the UFO. Jets made visual contact in 4 mins at 10:55, climbed to 48,000 ft, fell off, climbed again to 48,000 ft and Smith got a weak return on his radar gun sight, shot gun camera film of the 24-40 ft white round object or silver-colored sphere or disc estimated at 60,000­70,000 ft and filmed by gun camera a white round object [which then took off at high speed ?]. F-86s broke off intercept at about 11:05 or 11:13 a.m., apparently about 100 miles WSW of Dayton. Film reportedly shows UFO image in the upper right of the frames with noticeable motion to the lower left. 22 mins.

At 2223 hours three unidentified objects were observed on the radar scope. The first object was at 4 1/2 miles away at a bearing of 80 degrees. The second object was at 3 miles at a bearing of 100 degrees. The third object was at 4 1/2 miles at a bearing of 113 degrees. At 2232 hours one object was observed at 5 miles away at a bearing of 93 degrees. At 2239 hours two targets appeared on the radar scope at a bearing of 53 degrees. At this time a B-25 aircraft was returning to Andrews AFB and when the B-25 approached the unknown radar targets they disappeared. Earlier at 2115 hours a civilian man observed two bright objects high in the sky over SE Washington D.C. The two objects were flying towards Andrews AFB, one in a straight course and the other circling the first. The objects were circular in shape and appeared to be the size of a fifty cent piece. According to the witness the objects were flying faster than any jet he had ever seen. The Andrews AFB case is not listed in the Project Blue Book Master Index.

Time: 7:57 p.m.
Summary:  Suddenly, a group of seven strong stationary targets became visible in an area about 15 miles north-northeast of the radar antenna. During the next two or three antenna revolutions, the area on the scope between Washington and Baltimore became heavily sprinkled with stationary targets in a belt about 6 miles wide. A group of additional targets became visible in an area approximately 10 to 15 miles south of the radar antenna. For the next four and one-half hours, many unidentified targets were carefully plotted with a grease pencil on the face of the Type VG scope. The time for each was entered on these plots in order to calculate ground speeds. To secure a permanent record, time data and track plots were transferred from the scope face to a sheet of frosted acetate. Targets disappeared at 0030 Aug 14.
