RADCAT is a revitalized special project now being conducted jointly by NICAP & Project 1947 with the help and cooperation of the original compiler of RADCAT, Martin Shough, to create a comprehensive listing of radar cases with detailed documentation from all previous catalogues, including UFOCAT and original RADCAT.

Brilliant Objects Tracked on GCA Radar
July 24, 1964
Langley AFB, Virginia


Dan Wilson:
July 24, 1964; Langley AFB, Virginia (BBU)
At 4:26 a.m. local time, multiple brilliant round objects were seen by tower operators using 7X50 binoculars and were observed on radar by the GCA operator. The sighting  was described as four objects one and one half minutes in trail followed by two objects one and one half minutes apart, and three to four minutes separating the two formations. The objects appeared as large as a silver dollar held at arm's length and resembled burning magnesium. No sound was heard. The objects were observed to the south of the field at 75 degree angular elevation. This elevation is also given as 15 degrees and to the southeast of the field. (McDonald list)
