There was a sighting by three crew members on the USS Supply 300 miles west of San Francisco, reported by Lt. Frank Schofield, later to become Commander-in-Chief of the Pacific Battle Fleet. Schofield wrote of three bright red egg-shaped and circular objects flying in echelon formation that approached beneath the cloud layer, then changed course and "soared" above the clouds, departing directly away from the earth after two to three minutes. The largest had an apparent size of about six suns.
Glowing globe stopped over tree emitted faint buzzing sound.
"It lit up the air around it. It looked like a localized sunset, but in the center was a strange-looking flying object."
|Scientist opinion: Possibility the electrification of the plane was due to the close proximity of the UFO's propulsion system which ionized the atmosphere.|
The glowing spheres and disks, ranging in size from one-to-five in diameter, sometimes exhibiting changes in color, usually from orange to red to white and back to orange.
A glowing body, trailing smoke behind it, was seen heading to the southwest at a low altitude.
R5D four-engine transport Navy aircraft Pilot and crew observe a translucent or metallic, saucer shaped craft, purple-red fiery ring around the perimeter and a frosted white glow around the entire object. The purple-red glow around the perimeter was the same type of glow you get around the commutator of an auto-generator when you observe it at night. Interigated and investigated by US Air Force intelligence officers.
Discoid UFO estimated to be approximately 30 feet in diameter and 10 feet thick. The object was well-defined and had a blue-green color with a similarly colored glow surrounding it.
Wilbert Smith confirmed that a number of fragments from UFOs had been recovered and analysed by his research group, including one that had been shot from a disc near Washington in July 1952. Smith, who held a top-secret clearance and liaised with his American counterparts at the time, was informed that the disc, which was about 2 feet in diameter, as glowing.

A resident of the women's dormitory at Hillsdale College reported a strange object in the sky. County Civil Defense director William E. Van Horn responded and confirmed that a bright glowing object was indeed bouncing across a nearby hollow and then became airborne. J. Allen Hynek was a scientific consultant to the Air Force Project Blue Book and a UFO-skeptic at that time. Hynek, who died in 1986, dismissed the Hillsdale sighting as "swamp gas". Within 2 weeks, however, he changed not only his opinion about the sighting, but also sides in the great UFO debate. Perhaps it was the comments of Van Horn's report that sparked his "conversion". Soil analysis showed that on the very spot where the "swamp gas" had touched down, radiation levels were higher than in the surrounding terrain. More significant still was the finding that the ground was also contaminated with Boron, the element used to slow nuclear chain reactions.
The object was illuminated by a red glow.

The following is a preliminary report of this event in Puerto Rico -- the flight of a large triangular UFO over Puerto Rico. At this time only one person has photographed the object, but we are aware that more people saw it, including administrative personnel from the [Luis Munoz Marin International] Airport.
