At 5:22 p.m. local time, an object the size of Venus was observed by ground and airborne witnesses. The object was also observed on air route traffic surveillance radar. The object was round, white during the day, pink at sunset and dark at night. It was mostly stationary but had slight northeast movement during the day then returned to original position. The object was observed 20 to 30 degrees above horizon at Albuquerque. At Las Vegas, New Mexico the object was observed directly overhead. At Sante Fe, ARTCC personnel watched the object with binoculars.  The object was also observed from a KC-135 tanker aircraft piloted by Capt. A. A. Picinich, heading and speed unknown.
