Highway Patrol Officers Charles A. Carson and Stanley Scott
were on patrol when they sighted what they thought was an airliner about
to crash. When the UFO had descended to about 100 or 200 feet altitude
it suddenly reversed direction and climbed to 500 ft. Description:
round or oblong surrounded by a glow (color not mentioned) and having
definite red lights at each end. They continued to watch the UFO
as it performed "unbelievable" aerial feats. The
local RADAR operator confirmed the UFO at this time
but denied it the next day. Other Tehema County Sheriffs'
officers also saw this UFO and another similar one that same night.
