Date: Sept., 1959
Location: Westover AFB, Mass.
Summary: The witnesses were working in a B-52 on the flight line when a radr man called them in to see xseven UFOs being tracked. One comment in the report seems to indicate a problem with the story. The primary witness said the objects were 150 miles away and in the center of the (radar) screen. This indicates long range radar onboard and targets relatively close to the radar antenna. It is the range of the objects that is in serious question with a B-52’s onboard radar.

Summary: Scott Mitchell was on the hallway of his home when he saw a being described as dark gray, wrinkled skin throughout its body, standing at the opposite end. The being communicated in a telepathic voice that went directly to the witness head. “Do not be afraid, we will not harm you.” Scared the witness attempted to run but was paralyzed in his tracks, time seemed to slow down around him. A greenish haze surrounded the witness and the being glided towards him. The witness then lost consciousness. His next memory was of waking up in the house in a back bedroom. Witness has experienced further encounters.

Location: Near Redmond, Oregon. BBU
Time: About 4:55 a.m. (PST)
Summary: Redmond Police officer Robert Dickerson saw a strange bright light [white ball shaped?] rapidly descending north of the airport then stopped and hovered several hundred [200?] feet above ground for several mins where it lit up the juniper trees below. He drove toward it on the Prineville Hwy then turned toward the airport, when the object turned orange [reddish-orange?] and moved rapidly to [dive and hover?] about 10 miles NE of the airport at about 3,000 ft [height? altitude? Redmond is at 3,000 ft elevation MSL]. Dickerson arrived at the airport to report sighting in person at 4:59 a.m. at Redmond FAA Air Traffic Communication Station. FAA Flight Service Specialist Laverne Wertz, Dickerson and others viewed object through binoculars. FAA station reported UFO to Seattle Air Route Control Center at 5:10 a.m., which in turn reported it to Hamilton AFB, Calif., which scrambled 6 F-102 jets from Portland [?] to intercept UFO. FAA station observers saw object hover and emit long tongues of red, yellow and green light which extended and retracted at irregular intervals. As F-102’s approached the object from the SE [?] it turned into mushroom shape, emitted red and yellowflames from lower side and ascended rapidly, disappearing above scattered clouds at about 14,000 ft [altitude? height?]. [Object’s departure forced one F-102 to swerve to avoid collision, another nearly lost control from UFO’s turbulent wake; tracked on F-102 airborne radars but jets unable to intercept.] Object reappeared about 20 miles S of Redmond at about 25,000 ft. Seattle Center reported at 6:20 a.m. radar contact with object about 25 miles S of Redmond at 52,000 ft was made by USAF ADC radar site at Klamath Falls, Ore., which tracked a large 300-400 ft[?] target and vectored B-47 and F-89 aircraft to identify. Redmond FAA controllers lost sight of object. Seattle FAA reported at 7:11 a.m. that Klamath Falls radar still tracked object at 25 miles S of Redmond but varying altitude from 6,000 to 52,000 ft.

It was discovered that it was badly damaged by some kind of explosion and fire and the inside was completely charred. On the site it was discovered noticeable radiation and among the fragments the body of an 80 cm dwarf-like humanoid was found.

Summary: On running outside after an electrical power failure, Mr. Gideon Johansson and his son saw a brilliant white light hovering over a nearby building. This descended, breaking through the top a maple tree, until it was only 18″ above the street, and 10 ft from Mr. Johansson. It was an oval, dome shaped machine 12 ft long & 8 ft high, light blue in color; in front was a large window surrounded by rivet-heads. Inside this, brilliantly illuminated by a white light, he could see 2 small, seated individuals, with very high crowned heads, big eyes, small mouths, and pointed chins. Each had an earphone on one ear. They wore white uniforms with broad black belts crossed over their shoulders & chests. One of them loosened his belt to work on something below the window level. After 2 minutes the craft floated along the street for 25 yards, then disappeared in a flash, with a rush of air. A glassy deposit was found on the power line 1 km away. Mr. Johansson suffered ill effects to his health, and the maple tree eventually died.
