Date: March 9, 1958
Location: Panama Canal Zone
Time: around 2000 hours
An unidentified object was picked up on search radar approaching the Pacific side of the Isthmus of Panama. At 2045 hours two additional blips were observed. These returns were transferred to track radar. During the period of observation the radar lock was broken, the equipment immediately picked up the target and locked on again. A second radar tracking station also locked onto the return. The manner of flight of the objects was steady, slightly circular path over the vicinity of Fort Kobbe, Canal Zone. There was such rapid movement of the object that it broke the lock of the track radar. It was assumed that these were solid objects as track radar can only be locked on a solid object. At 2400 hours, radar advised that as soon as a searchlight was employed the object became evasive.

Location: Battle Creek, Michigan
Summary: In October 1958, sensationalist editor Ray Palmer published a story he fished in a Detroit saucerian bulletin. The story told that Mrs. Helen Jefferson, of Battle Creek, Michigan, told the police she was approached by a “little man not of this world” on three consecutive days, March 20, 21, 22. She was on her way home from the store in the afternoon of the 20th when the little man suddenly came up to her and asked if he could come into her house for a cup of coffee. The three-foot-tall being, was dressed in a tan leather coat with hood and leather pants, had a pinkish-yellow complexion and his hair was of the same color. It was told he carried an object that appeared to be a wheel in a light blue bag made of rubber-looking material, tucked under his arm. After the self-invitation for a cup of coffee, the little man, who spoke in “throaty” guttural sounds, one word at a time instead of sentences, finally communicated that he had an important message for her. However, Mrs. Jefferson became frightened and ran into the house. The next day she met the same little man again, but the longest interview took place on March 22, when he told her he was married, but had no children, and that his wife “was gone.” Asked where he came from, the little man said a word which sounded to her like “moose.” She asked him if he meant “Mars,” whereupon the creature began pointing upward and gesturing, though she never did figure out if he meant to confirm her supposition. According the Detroit UFO Group’s publication, a five-year-old neighbor girl also saw the little man and confirmed the woman’s story.
