Summary: One mile north of Bonny
Spring Ranch, on U.S. Highway 91, two civilians in a car observed in the rear-view mirror a low-flying object that overtook their car, followed by a rush of cold air. It stopped, circled the vehicle, flew off and was lost to sight behind the mountains, where it may have landed. In the course of an exceptionally complete investigation by military authorities, however, no evidence of a landing was discovered.

Summary: ATrans-Texas Airlines Capt. A. V. Beather, flying a DC-3, saw two very bright whte objects straight ahead of aircraft hovering between 6,000 and 7,000 feet over Baytown, Texas. The objects disappeared on a heading between 65 and 70 degrees at 10,000 feet. The objects followed an erratic flight path. They appeared to be traveling much faster than an aircraft. Weather radar showed small non-persistant blips on the scope in the general area of the sighting SW of Orange, Texas. These blips were apparently not ground clutter.
