7:40 p.m. USAF Lt. James Allen saw an orange, blimp-shaped object, 80 ft long 20 ft wide, appear to the N at treetop level about 600 ft away, traveling towards him about 60-70 mph, cross over his car (when his radio faded out) at about 500 ft height. He got out of the car and watched object linger overhead about 20 secs, then point its nose at 45 angle, accelerate and climb to disappearance in 30-40 secs to the E and slightly to right of the full moon (96 azimuth 35 elevation) at tremendous speed.1 min.
