Location:  Los Alamos, NM

Francis Ridge:
The following report was submitted to NICAP in 1961. The witness, a technician for the Atomic Energy Commission at Los Alamos, one morning had noticed a group of men outside the lab he was working at. Joining them he looked skyward, and at an altitude of approximately 9,000 feet observed 13 saucer shaped objects in a perfect straight line formation. During this observation period of about forty five minutes, several of the objects would suddenly leave this formation and with a tremendous burst of speed climb to what he thought was about 20,000 ft. There were hundreds of witnesses. See attached.
