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.

At 5:10 p.m. PST, a round, sometimes irregular shaped object was observed high in the sky to the east of the observers. The object was silver-white to rosy in color. Types of observations listed in the report are: Ground-Visual, Air-Visual, Ground-Radar, and Air-Intercept Radar. F3D aircraft tried to intercept the object with no success due to the extreme altitude of the object. The total length of the observation was approximately 2 hours. The radar site at Mt. Luguna (P-76) detected the object at 59,000 feet with no speed.
