Dec. 7, 1954; Edenton, North Carolina (BB)
At 3:05 p.m. Capt. Dayton Robinson, Jr. was flying a Marine TV-2 aircraft near Norfolk, Va., with his passenger Cpl. Edwin G. Capone, when they observed a dull white balloon-shaped object. Robinson rolled the aircraft toward the object with the intention of circling the object. At this time the object appeared to accelerate rapidly and moved to the south in a slight climb at approximately 15,000 feet. The speed of the object was estimated to be 2,700 to 3,000 mph. The object was observed for approximately 20-23 seconds. (BB files).
