8:25 a.m. PST. A white object with the appearance of an elongated balloon was observed by a USMC pilot in an F3D aircraft flying at 35,000 feet. The object was detected on airborne radar. The object was said the be the size of a basketball held at arm's length and appeared to be motionless. At the radar station SM-163 (Las Vegas AFS, Nevada?), they were unable to make radar contact with the Marine aircraft or the unidentified object due to a local maintenance situation. The length of the observation was 15 minutes.
