August 11-12, 1965; Whiteman AFB, Missouri
Beginning at 11:30 p.m., August 11, 1965, multiple objects were seen visually from the ground by observers at building S-35 Base Operations and the control tower. In addition the objects were observed on the base AN/CPS  9 weather radar. Objects moved from north northeast to the south very fast and disappeared to the south. These objects were observed over a period of 4 - 5 hours. They appeared to be at angles estimated to be at 30 degrees to 60 degrees above the horizon. One witness observed a dull red object , oval in shape, at 5 to 10 degrees above the horizon.Some of the observers were 2nd Lt Lee F. Hudson and Staff  Sgt Alton W. Badman, both of the of the 8th Weather Squadron. Other observers were control tower personnel. All the observers are considered to be reliable.  One witness on duty in the control tower observed an object round in shape and appeared to be the size of a huge star. Object had a spotlight pointing directly toward the ground and another spotlight pointing to the southeast. The object was moving northeast at  approx. 10 knots. This object was tracked on radar on both height  and search presently measuring 5000 ft. altitude. (Dan Wilson)
