Location:  Terre Haute, Indiana    BB
Time: 6:10 – 7:00 p.m local. 
Summary: Several sightings were brought up for Congressional Inquiry by the President of local UFO Club RECAP. At 6:10 witnesses saw a white light overhead the size of Saturn, at about 6:45 several people saw red lights south of Terre Haute, at 6:45 to 6:50 one witness (pilot?) says two big green balls of fire approaching, they reversed course and sped out of sight. At 7:00 a pilot saw two orange balls of fire ahead of him, seconds later he saw a white flash. (Note: This sighting may be important though because of the crashed B-52. One hundred miles southeast of Terre Haute at Hardinsburg, Kentucky, on October 15 [same day] a B-52 bomber and a KC-135 tanker collided and crashed –7 dead. The B-52 was carrying nuclear bombs.)

Date: October 16 1959
Location: El Cobre, Algeciras Spain
Time: 0300A
Summary: A worker was alone at a local water plant when suddenly all electricity and light at the plant was shut off. He went outside to see what had caused the outage and felt a strange electrical sensation in the air. He then saw about 200 meters away a hovering luminous object that was very close to the ground, it was shaped like a half egg on top of a plate, and it emitted a brilliant orange green & purple light. Next to the object stood two tall human like figures wearing shiny silvery orange outfits, one of the beings bent down under the object and appeared to look inside. All the time the witness was not able to move a muscle, holding a flashlight in his hand. Somehow he was suddenly able to turn the flashlight on and both beings re-entered the object, which then ascended slowly emitting a loud buzzing sound and increasing in luminosity. Ground traces were found at the site. And the witness almost suffered a nervous breakdown afterwards.

Summary: Miss Moulet, 45, was hanging out her washing in the twilight, with her 3 children, when she saw an egg-shaped object descend silently, to hover just above her. Through a wide triangular window in its front, strongly illuminated, she could see about 20 persons, tall, with wavy blond hair and very light skin, wearing white suits and short sleeves. They were smiling or perhaps laughing at her. The air became very cold. After 10-15 minutes the object took off again, disappearing in 2 or 3 seconds, leaving a slight trail.
