Rating: 5  


A Hynek Classification of Distant Encounter is usually an incident involving an object more than 500 feet from the witness. At night it is classified as a "nocturnal light" (NL) and during the day as a "daylight disc" (DD). The size of the object or the viewing conditions may render the object in greater detail but yet not qualify the sighting as a Close Encounter which is an object within 500'.

April 29, 1957; Worcester, Massachusetts (BB)
10:05 p.m. A single rust colored object the size of a half dollar held at arm's length was observed moving south to north directly overhead. The second sighting was of seven unidentified silver-red objects traveling in a straight line. Then at 2250 hours twelve objects traveling in a "V" formation was observed for about 4 seconds. These objects were apparently higher than the other objects.
