Date: September 1 1958
Location: Laval France
Time: 2130
Summary: About 11 km before Laval, a businessman coming from Paris suddenly saw a motionless object, 10 m above ground, to the left of the road, 150 m away. It was shaped like two cones with a common base and showed two rows of about ten openings in the middle section. It seemed about 20 m wide, metallic, with a light similar to that of a red traffic light shining through the windows. The witness had time to stop and maneuvered to get the object in his headlight beams. Throughout the observation a whistling sound such as that of a jet aircraft was heard. The object rose very slowly, flew off faster climbing out of sight.

Date: Sept. 7, 1958 
Location: Miles City AFS, Ellsworth AFB, North Dakota BBU
Time: 5:08 a.m. (MDT).
Summary:  Radar returns were indicated on MPS-14, MPS-7 and FPS-6 radars. The radar return on MPS-14 appeared as aircraft return. The object(s) appeared to move up and down rapidly in a circular flight path. The object(s) appeared to orbit NW of Ellsworth AFB, South Dakota. Two aircraft were scrambled (F-89J?) during the incident.

Date: Sept. 8, 1958 
Location: SAC HQ, Offutt AFB, Omaha, Neb. BBU
Time: 6:40 p.m. (CST).  
Summary: SAC Operations officer-flight-engineeer-celestial navigator Maj. Paul A, Duich, USAF, plus several USAF officers from AF Ballistic Missiles Division, Los Angeles AFS, Calif., and many other Offutt AFB officers and airmen, plus Offutt air traffic control tower personnel, saw an brilliantly white elongated cylindrical object hovering in the W at about 270° azimuth elevation 30° just after sunset [sunset at 6:46 p.m. CST at azimuth 278°], object oriented vertically with blunter end highest [about 1/10 width/length ratio].  After several mins object turned dull orange-red and became sharper in outline.  A swarm of about 10 “black specks” appeared to “cavort” around the lower end of the object for about 1 min before disappearing then the cylinder object began to rotate counterclockwise so no longer oriented vertically and started drifting slowly to the S from due W and dropping in elevation angle over about 5 mins [to about 20° elevation about 268° azimuth] until oriented horizontally and diminishing in angular size.  Then during final 5 mins object continued angular descent and S drift and gradual decrease in angular size but began rotating orientation back clockwise to about 45° angle (10:30 o’clock) until disappearing by fading into the slight atmospheric haze in the cloudless sky at about 265° azimuth 5° elevation [angular size about 1/3 of initial size].  USAF Col. took several color photos with 35 mm camera on tripod but later claimed nothing came out. Reported to ATIC but no report in BB files.    20 mins 25+ witnesses 10-20? Full Moons SAC HQ + photos?

Date: Sept. 14, 1958
Location: Wheelus AFB, Tripoli, Libya BBU
Time: 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. local time.
Summary:   There were unidentified returns on radar scopes. The returns were similar in size and intensity to returns from an aircraft. GCA detected a return at 400 feet altitude, 1-1/2 miles distant, bearing 110 degrees. GCI detected a return at 700 feet altitude 30 miles northeast of the station. GCA lost the return at 400 feet 1-1/2 half miles, bearing 260 degrees. GCI lost the return in the ground clutter approximately two miles from the approach end of runway 29. GCA reported  that it entered the precision approach scope from the north and then crisscrossed back and forth on it, sometimes passing completely off the scope. GCA also reported that it showed on the area surveillance radar scope in almost all directions. GCI reported that the object was tracked inbound to the coast at which time it veered to the south. The altitude of the return varied from 200 to 1000 feet and speeds ranging from 25 to 80 knots.

Date: September 21 1958
Location: Sheffield Lake Ohio   BBU
Time: 0300
Summary: A circular, flat object, 7 m in diameter, 2 m thick, hovering 1.5 m above ground, and making a jet-like sound was seen from a house by a civilian woman. Its color was that of aluminum; it had a wobbling motion and emitted gray smoke before rising again and taking off.

Date: Sept. 23, 1958 
Location: Kindley AFB, Bermuda BBU
Time: 12:20 a.m. local time. 
Summary: The Kindley Control Tower operator visually sighted a red light at an altitude of approximately 3,000 to 4,000 feet which appeared to be traveling at great speed. The object was in sight for about one minute. At the same time the radar operator on duty picked up an object which traveled in several directions at a speed of more than Mach 1. The object faded from the radar scope as if it were very high or low. The radar contact was made 4 times in about 7 or 8 minutes.
