July 23, 1952; Alexandria, Virginia
At 2100 EST, a red object, size undetermined, was sighted southwest of Alexandria, Virginia. The object hovered for 10 minutes, then disappeared in a westerly direction at a high rate of speed. The witnesses were a County Policeman, two airmen and a civilian. Beginning with doc:
(see our copy of the docs below)
The night of July 23, 1952, the same day the alleged "Fragment" was shot off a "flying saucer," a UFO was reported at Alexandria, Virginia. The object was last seen moving in a westerly direction. This would carry this object in the general direction of the circled area as shown on this map. The "Fragment" was found at Vienna, Virginia, shown on map.
(Fran Ridge: A jet pilot reported he shot a piece off a UFO but we are still looking for documentation. Our source is a Nov. 1961 tape recording in the possesion of Frank Edwards of Wilbert Smith ("Flying Saucers - Serious Business", pocketbook, page 49).
