September 2, 1952; Delft, Netherlands (BB)
4:35 p.m. Mr. Luuk Nijhot, a radio engineer, was making tests on a V.H.F. antenna on top of a roof, making measurements with a field strength meter. He took pictures of the meter with a Zeiss Ikon camera to verify a reading. Nijhot continued making tests and he suddenly saw a bright silver light in the sky moving at tremendous speed. As the object came closer it turned towards Nijhot and looked like a bright silver round plate. Still holding the camera Nijhot took a picture. He then looked at the field strength meter and noticed a strong dip in the meter deflection of the indicating instrument. The object disappeared at a tremendous speed. The object was in view for approximately 10-15 seconds.
