Radar Incident

Heavily-Witnessed Radar-Visual Case Near Kansas City
Belton, MO
August 8, 1978

This UFO is certainly an unusual, dynamic one, putting on a show over Belton, MO that could be seen in three neighboring suburbs south of Kansas City, with dozens of witnesses reporting it independently to law enforcement agencies and the local Air Force base. Thus, it is distinguished as the IUR case with the greatest number of witnesses. It also appears to have been seen briefly on radar. If this event was based on a hoax, it would be unprecedentedly elaborate.

Our thanks to Mary Castner for the pdg file which presents the IUR in its full glory.
