Date: August 1959
Location: Near Fort Garland California
Time: night
Summary: The witness was driving in the desert with a friend when the car ahead of them suddenly disappeared. Later around sunset he went alone to take photographs and was sitting in the car when he apparently experienced a time lapse. He remembers standing in a transparent cylinder inside a large room; there he saw several humanoids wearing armor like outfits. They communicated with the witness by using telepathy and told him they were in a hovering space station above the earth. He was taken to a room where he was shown an anti-gravity device. He was also told that they had taken the vehicle and driver that he had seen to disappear earlier.

Location: Bet. Roswell and Corona, New Mexico BBU 
Time:
Summary: Jack H. Goldsberry, former USN PBY, flying Cessna 170 from Hobbs to Albuquerque, N.M., at 8,000 feet, noticed halfway between Roswell and Corona, that his Magnesyn electric compass suddenly moved around a slow 360° rotation in about 4-5 secs, and his other standard magnetic compass was spinning wildly. About this time, he saw 3 small gray slightly fuzzy elliptical objects in close echelon formation passing in front from left to right and around his plane at a distance about 450 to 600 ft and a speed of about 200 mph. Magnesyn compass followed the objects’ position as they circled the plane, and after one full circle they disappeared to the rear, then both compasses settled back to normal. CØ controller at Albuquerque canceled his flight plan and ordered him to land at Kirtland AFB, where he was interrogated by a USAF major.
