While sailing off the coast of Nicaragua, he and his boat's captain saw a bright green-and-blue sphere which approached the observers until it was the apparent size of a plate. Sanderson, Ivan Terence.

John H. Janssen, editor of the Daily Record (an American aviation journal) was flying his own plane from Morristown Airport in New Jersey. He spotted six, luminous spherical craft with hazy rings around them flying in a trail high in the sky above him. He grabbed his camera and shot a picture. He was only able to get four of the six objects in the image frame. Two weeks later, on July 23rd, he had another encounter of what looked to him like the same or very similar aircraft. He was again flying his airplane out of Morristown and was at 6,000ft.


CAA [later FAA] spotted a round, shiny object. Marine fighter pilot and Air Force would attempt an intercept. Jets from Langley Air Force Base in Virginia tried still another intercept. "Probable balloon" Lieutenant Edward Rupplet.

Through binoculars, these objects were distinguishable as red spheres, circled by yellow rings inclined at an angle in such a way that the bases of the spheres were were almost completely hidden.
