Perkins, Flight Engineer, while flying a EC-121D aircraft at 15,000 feet on a course of 132 degrees at 170 knots at approximately 240 miles WSW of Los Angeles (33 degrees 2 min. N 122 degrees 30 min. W) observed a blue-white round object the same size as a star move across the horizon in a straight line too swiftly for any known aircraft. The object was first seen at 30 degrees above the horizon and 30 degrees left of nose. The object was last seen at 15 degrees above the horizon 60 degrees left of nose. It suddenly disappeared after brightening slightly. The length of observation was 4 minutes. (Blue Book files)
