Dan Wilson:
At 9:48 p.m. local time, a T-33 aircraft on normal lookout at 33,000 feet flying 260 degrees observed a round bright white light the size of a pea at 2 o'clock position. The object was observed by air visual and air radar. Spokane Center was called and confirmed a target was in contact moving rapidly to the NW. Radar speed of object estimated at 1050 knots. The object disappeared instantaneously like a light being shut off. A Moon Dust Alert was involved. Length of observation was 7 minutes. (Dan Wilson)
