Location. New Paltz New York
Date: May 1959
Time: 0230A
Summary: Sitting at the window unable to sleep, Thomas McKinney saw on the New Paltz athletic field a large mushroom shaped object 50-75 ft in diameter, wrapped in a thin grayish mist. Several appendages that looked like ladders extended between its top and the ground, and small white lights “hopped” up and down these “ladders.” After watching for an hour he woke his wife, and they both watched it for another hour before going to bed; they did not see it leave. No traces were found the next day.

Date: May 1959
Location: Superstition Mountains, Arizona
Time: Time: night
Summary: Two prospectors told a strange story while visiting with an old time of the Phoenix area. They claimed that for several days they noticed what they at first thought to be several small children playing near and in a small creek, which had water in it only during the early spring season. They were quite familiar with the many “strange” deaths that had occurred in this area and wisely felt that children had no business there. These small “children” appeared to be about five or six years old and would be seen in the same dry creek bed day after day as the prospectors went about their diggings. One day they decided to investigate and see what children could possibly be doing in such an area. When they reached the creek bed they discovered, to their amazement that the “children” had completely vanished but there, still very fresh in the sand, were footprints. These prints appeared as miniature duplicates of engineer boots. Although the miners returned to the same spot the next day they reportedly never saw the “children” again. Other witnesses claim to have seen these little “children” at closer range and say they look more like men than children. Some ranchers, while on roundups in this same area, say that they could clearly see “little men” as they called them, on the tops of ridges and mountains of the superstition range watching them.

Date: May 2, 1959 
Location: Pease AFB, New Hampshire BBU 
Time: 8:23 p.m. EDT
Summary: five tracks appeared on radar scopes at speeds from 200- 400 knots at altitudes of 7,000 to 18,000 feet. Immediately thereafter, more tracks appeared. A total of 18 tracks were involved. Some targets approach the coast then reversed course and headed outbound. At least 3 different radars were tracking the objects simultaneously, at sites P-10, P-13 and Texas Tower 11. Ten additional aircraft were brought up to 5 minute alert, 4 at Stewart AFB, 2 at Westover AFB, and 4 at Otis AFB. Eventually all available aircraft were scrambled, including some from adjacent sectors. Air Defense Artillery stated that their radar also picked up 6 of these targets through the area. There was no apparent reason for the unknown tracks. All equipment was functioning normally. Everything possible was accomplished to check and verify inputs.
