July 30, 1952; Keesler AFB, Mississippi  (BBU)
At 11:55 p.m. CST, Capt. Eugene P. Daspit and T/Sgt James E. Hansen sighted an unusual object on the PPI scope of an AN/CPS-5 radar set at Keesler AFB, Mississippi. The radar target was teardrop shaped and was first sighted at an azimuth of 335 degrees approximately 43 miles distant. The target moved very slowly south for approx. two minutes, then it stopped for approx. four minutes. It then began to move slowly north for three minutes, then stopped for two minutes and disappeared. After approx. three minutes the target reappeared and began moving north at a more rapid pace and disappeared completely at a distance of 50 miles from the radar site. (Dan Wilson)
