7:02 p.m. local. One red egg-shaped object the size of a pea held at arm's length was seen visually and picked up on radar. The object was reportedly stationary but it did move. There were also 5 photos taken of the object but were undeveloped for possible instructions. The length of the observation was 8 minutes.
The Project Record Card says "film taken but no object appeared on film." The actual report says film was "undeveloped for possible instructions" and later it was requested the film be submitted for evaluation. All five photos were of different exposures. As Dan reported, the object was said to have been stationary, but the report says object moved 1-1/2 miles NE at 2310Z and visual observer contacted radar.
