RADCAT is a revitalized special project now being conducted jointly by NICAP & Project 1947 with the help and cooperation of the original compiler of RADCAT, Martin Shough, to create a comprehensive listing of radar cases with detailed documentation from all previous catalogues, including UFOCAT and original RADCAT.

May 23, 1953; Lackland AFB, Texas
8:43 a.m. CST. Five or more radar targets were observed from a radar site at San Antonio, Texas. The radar targets appeared to be orbiting over Monclova, Mexico. When first detected the targets were at approximately 35,000 feet at approximately 240 knots flying in a northerly direction for 40 to 50 miles and then began to orbit. The formation faded off the radar screen in the same locale. The observation lasted for one hour and five minutes. The radar in use was the AN/FPS-3.
