April 22, 1954; San Nicholas Island, Calif. (BBU)
2:00 PM. USN Seaman Apprentice James B. Stephens, Jr., and Seaman Bernard G. Klein, Jr., while driving a Navy vehicle on base saw a 4-6 ft long gray cigar-shaped object with pointed nose traveling just above the ground on a near parallel course that would not cross the road until far ahead. The object suddenly impacted the ground sending up a cloud of dirt or dust and disappeared from sight. They stopped and searched for 20+ mins but found nothing. Further USN investigations and radioactivity surveying found no traces. (Jan Aldrich)
