Summary: May 13, 1955; Duluth, MN (BBU)
8:30 PM. Two airmen flying in a F-89D at 26,000 feet on an air intercept mission locked onto an object on the RO’s radar scope. The target was at 8 miles distance and move to 6 miles distance. The target moved to within 6000 yards and stopped dead. The object immediately began going out in range faster that it came in. The estimated speed at the time target indication was going out in range, according to scope interpretation and pilot’s and RO’s experience in running interception, would be over 1000 knots. Air-electronics: APG-40; APA-84 Observers were: 1/Lt. Charles M. Middleton, pilot, and 2/Lt. Donald. G. Fisher, radar observer, both of the 11th FIS, and both rated as completely reliable.

Location. Dinan France
Time: 0015A
Summary: On closing the gate to the courtyard of his residence, M Droguet was temporarily blinded by a beam of bluish green light, and paralyzed, either by the beam or by fear. Then he saw an enormous object hovering 5 ft above the courtyard. Near it were 2 short men wearing metallic one-piece gray overalls, and bulky helmets; they somewhat resembled the Michelin “tire man” trademark. On the abdomen they had black boxes with wires attached. One seemed to be picking up pebbles. They walked with difficulty. After a few minutes they entered an opening in the under part of the craft by means of a ladder; the vessel rose vertically without sound, its outer part rotating, and its light then went out.

Date: May 29 1955
Location: Smithfield, near Cairns Australia
Time: 1920
Summary: Approximate date. Three farmers, among them Thomas Robinson, saw a light growing in size for 2 min and flying between them and Mt. Williams. Looking like a “light airplane on fire,” it changed course, losing altitude and trailing flames. It touched the ground, lighting up the whole area, rose again, and began to “feel its way along the crooked edge of the cane field and the swamp toward our house.” It returned to earth four times. The dogs ran out barking as it landed within 100 m of the witnesses before taking off again.

Summary: A farmer, 74-year-old J. B. Collange, was watching his cows on a clear, calm morning when he suddenly observed, in an easterly direction, a vertical circular object about 3 m away, the bottom edge about 30 cm from the ground. It measured about 1.10 m in diameter, was very luminous, white, but not blinding. Many filaments of various colors were radiating from the disk. Their length varied between 0.5 and 2 m. The object rose over a hedge and was lost to sight behind some woods.
