Summary: Seeing behind a hedge a man in a white “helmet,” Rev. Pearl Kerwin went around the hedge to meet him; she encountered a man in a white one-piece coverall type of suit covering even his feet, with bright blue trunks. The “helmet” was part of the suit, like a hood. She yelled, and the man ran off very rapidly, apparently “skimming” over the ground. John Gill, who saw his face at 15 ft distance, said there were 2 black holes where eyes should be.

Location. Colebrook New Hampshire
Date: March 19 1959
Time: 0100A
Summary:  Two men were on the grounds of the Lady of Grace Monastery when they saw a large silvery Saturn shaped object descend over them, the craft had lighted windows around its lower portion and blinking red, yellow and green lights around the outer rim, it also emitted a loud humming sound. The craft flew towards and retreated from the witnesses several times. They apparently suffered a black out. Years later under hypnosis one witness recalled that the craft landed nearby on three legs and all normal noises ceased. They were both then taken inside, where they communicated by telepathy with several humanoids including a taller six-foot tall being that appeared to be the leader. Several experiments and examinations were conducted on them and they were taken onboard a larger craft or mothership where they saw other human abductees.

Location: Northern Montana BBU
Time: around 8:00 p.m. local time
Summary: A B-52 jet bomber flying south on a HEADSTART II type mission became aware that an object was following the aircraft. The tail gunner had picked up the object on his scope. The object was also detected by the Electronics Warfare Officer (EWO) and two radar frequencies were determined as being utilized by the UFO. The UFO was maintained on MB-9 scope for approximately one hour at ranges of 8,000 to 15,000 yards. A ground GCI station was notified upon initial contact with the object and an F-89 Interceptor was launched at the time the object penetrated the Northern ADIZ. The pilot and RO in the F-89J made visual contact with the unknown object. The object appeared to be delta-shaped. The pilot of the F-89 estimated he had closed to four miles of the object.The object changed its heading of 270 degrees to 350 degrees and increased speed and began to climb. The F-89 gave chase to the limits of the F-89J, with the object steadily pulling away. The MG-12 Fire Control System on the F-89J had radar contact until 0319Z. There was concern about this object and this statement was made, ” In view of the fact that this sighting suggests a possibility of a different type of threat to the Continental United States, request this Headquarters, ATTN: ADODI, be advised of your final analysis regarding this sighting.”  The UFO demonstrated high performance and was painted by a high frequency radar.There was also thoughts that the object might be using radar absorbing materials.
