Red Bluff, California
August 13, 1960
The local radar base confirmed a UFO at this time (but denied it next day). "We made several attempts to ... get closer to it, but the object seemed to be aware of us and we were more successful remaining motionless and allow it to approach us, which it did on several occasions." Each time it did so, they experienced strong radio interference as the UFO emitted a red beam of light that swept the area and illuminated the ground. "The object was capable of moving in any direction. Up and down, back and forth ... it moved at high (extremely) speeds and several times we watched it change directions or reverse itself while moving at unbelievable speeds."
The UFO moved easterly away from them and they attempted to follow. A second similar object joined it, and both hovered for some time, occasionally emitting the red light beams, finally disappearing over the eastern horizon. Other officers at the Tehama County Sheriff's office also saw the UFO and witnessed its incredible maneuvers.
