At 2:25 a.m. local time (0825Z), a pilot flying from Perryville, Missouri, to Cape Girardeau, Mo., reported a UFO to Cape Girardeau ground observer in tower. The tower operator observed the object with binoculars and contacted Memphis who in turn contacted CHADS at Belleville, Illinois. Radar contact by the 798th Radar Squadron was made at bearing 152 degrees at 85 miles. The altitude varied from 33,200 feet to 8,900 feet. There were apparently no aircraft in that area. The visual observation from aircraft and ground of the objects described them as shaped like a cone or long rectangle and the color was intense white, orange or red. All visual observations at 270 degrees 20-40 degrees elevation. There were three objects seen but never more than two at one time.
