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.
Capt. Jack Adams and First Officer G.W. Anderson. "The lights had a fluorescent quality. They were soft and fuzzy, unlike any we'd seen before. The object was circular, apparently, and the lights remained distinct all the time it was in our view. There was no reflection, no exhaust, and no vapor trail. That's definite. "
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.

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.

It is not an animal. Hey, in the full middle of the way, a saucer! And the pilot... He has to see us in spite of his diving-suit and his mask. - You think so? - Surely, it circumvents its apparatus in the shape of hive, orange color, and woop! without a noise, the apparatus slides away... Where is it? There, above the beets: it moves towards the "Wood of the Vert-Logis". Not very quickly. It goes at 45 per hour. Yes, but what a mass! At least 2 m. high and 3 m. broad... You would think it will mow the treetops. Will it lander farther?"

Dennis Crowe. In the distance, he began to see a glow, and as he moved closer, he could make out the shape of a disc-shaped object, sitting on legs on the sandy beach.
Crowe guessed the object's diameter at 20 feet, and he could now see a glowing blue-green hue rim around it, with the craft's two parts a dullish gray. The top appeared to be a transparent dome. The disc shaped craft was sitting silently. The only sound he heard at the time was barking from some dogs. They were barking directly at the object. Crowe had made his first observations at several hundred feet, and as he came to within about 60 feet, the object lifted itself from the ground. Crowe could now hear a sound..a sound like air being forced out of f a balloon.

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.
A motorist saw a glowing object overhead, suddenly his car engine stalled, and a smaller circular metallic object landed besides the road.
