March 26, 1956; Westover AFB, MA
At 9:17 PM. A strange blip appeared on Westover tower radar scopes. Jets were quickly scrambled, then vectored toward the circling UFO. Flying the lead interceptor, Captain E______, closed in on a large round object, near enough to illuminate it with his landing lights. The strange machine appeared to be 100 to 150 feet in diameter, and 8 to 12 feet thick at the center. The pilot noted a green fluorescent glow around the outer edge. As he tried to get closer, the weirdly glowing disc, climbed steeply, the disappeared in the night at 30,000 feet.  The report named a tower operator and radioman, besides the jet pilot.
