Remote radiation detection, some noted in FBI and CIA documents occurring over government nuclear installations at Los Alamos National Laboratory and Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 1950, also reported by Project Blue Book director Ed Ruppelt in his book
As reported in the Jamestown Post-Journal in February of 1955:
"Scientist who examined the substance reported that it was slightly radioactive but not dangerously so."
At around 1:30 A.M. on November 10 a Madison, Ohio, woman saw an acorn-shaped UFO hovering just behind her garage. She watched it for half an hour. In the days afterward she developed a body rash and vision problems that her doctor believed suggested radiation poisoning. Subsequent medical tests uncovered no apparent cause for her injuries.
Test by professor Ernest Gehman and two DuPont engineers revealed a concentration of radiation at the landing site which spread over an area corresponding to the estimated size of the UFO.
Trace amounts of alpha radiation were found on their [two Air Force radar technicians] clothing and strange marks were discovered on their necks.
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.
Landing trace showed radiation.

Masato Kawano (7 years old) and Katsuhiro Yamahata (7 years old). A schoolteacher found radioactivity within the circular patch.

Realizing something was wrong, he rushed to the doctors. After examining him, the doctors asked him if had recently been exposed to a source of radiation.
Beta/Gamma readings of 0.1 millionth with peak readings in the depressions near the center.
Slight readings on Geiger counter.
Radiation poisoning type symptoms.
A craft with no sound stalked them, passed overhead affecting a Fuzzbuster radar detector indicating the presence of microwave radiation. Object moved toward witnesses, put extremely bright light on them, setting off Fuzzbuster ("me, me, me" sound).
The witness's wife was terrified that he was suffering from radiation sickness and would die unless somebody could help.
Long Island UFO Network. John Ford. J.B. Michaels. They later brought radiation detectors, which registered mildly elevated levels of radiation in the area. Magnetic detectors showed that the fencing along River and Gerard Roads exhibited signs of "reversed magnetic polarity."
