RADCAT is a revitalized special project now being conducted jointly by NICAP & Project 1947 with the help and cooperation of the original compiler of RADCAT, Martin Shough, to create a comprehensive listing of radar cases with detailed documentation from all previous catalogues, including UFOCAT and original RADCAT.

Two Objects Observed On Ground Radar
July 30, 1965
East Coast, United States

Fran Ridge:
Not much on this case but we list it on RADCAT now showing what we do have so far. The actual report itself is missing.  It was a Memo for the Record that was attached to the cover memos.

Dan Wilson:

July 30, 1965; East Coast United States
At 9:00 a.m. local time, one or two objects were observed on ground radar. Report states, "The motion of the target appears to rule out direct observation, as natural objects would not be able to change directions radically at the observed speeds." (Dan Wilson)

Brad Sparks:
The full paragraph was not quoted, which would make it clear it was an attempt to debunk the case, the next sentence that was omitted states:  "This leads one to believe that the observations were via anomalous propagation of the radar waves."  Two more sentences add to that. Apparently this analyst, the Lt Col who was Acting Director of FTD Electronics Directorate, considers real targets to be "direct observation" and non-real or anomalous targets to be "indirect" or whatever. So he was saying the motion rules out a real target.
