5:00 p.m. CST. The witness, an electronics technician, was conducting a ground check of the APS-64, which is a component of the MA-7 bombing system of a B-47 jet bomber, when he noticed a radar return at approximately 60 miles range traveling at an estimated 24,000 mph from north to south. The length of the observation was 9 seconds.

This is radar interference and not a UFO. See analysis below.
