8:10 p.m. MST. During a night refueling mission USAF crews of five B-29 bombers reported seeing green spherical objects. The primary sighting took place near Albuquerque and involved three B-29s flying at 15,000'. Another sighting was made at around 11:30 p.m. local time, at an area 10 miles southwest of Tulsa, Oklahoma. That crew was flying at 25,000'. Three hours later the final sighting took place near Enid, California, also with a B-29 at 25,000'. The aircrews making these reports expressed the opinion that the objects were not meteorites.
