Aug. 27, 1957; Dry Tortugas, Florida (BBU)
4:45 p.m. (EDT?). Crew of military aircraft saw an object with bright red to reddish-yellow pulsating light, tracked by ground radar. (See report below on radar source - Fran Ridge). (Project 1947)

Dan Wilson:
The speed of the object was approximately 950 knots at an estimated altitude of 20,000 feet. The object was also picked up on an aircraft APG-51A radar as large blip at 20 miles range. An intercept was attempted and was discontinued because of the speed of the object. Pilot visually followed the object as it faded from sight. (Dan Wilson)
