May 23, 1961; Bronson and Cross City, Florida
At 5:05 a.m. EDT, a round or oval-shaped object with a green halo was observed moving ESE. The speed conformed to light aircraft. Object picked up at Cross City on AN/FPS-6A height finder at 6:00 a.m. EDT (1000Z) from then until dawn. Radar picked up object at 160 degrees at 45 miles & 8400 feet. Altitude varied from 6 to 10 thousand feet while being tracked. When target locked on, antenna would hunt violently. When moved a few degrees in either direction the hunting would stop. When hunting occurred the scope would be cluttered. Tracked for two hours.  (Dan Wilson)
