Rating: 5  

A Hynek Classification of Close Encounter is usually an incident involving an object less than 500 feet from the witness.  The size of the object,  viewing conditions, or stereoscopic vision (depth perception)  may render the object in greater detail and still qualify the sighting as a Close Encounter even though the object may have been beyond 500'.  The incident depicted in the logo was encountered during an intense storm near Princeton, IN,  Aug. 1973.

Late Thursday, October 12, 1950, a saucer-looking object was observed over the K-25 area near the NEPA Project area. The object was described as round, as big as a four room house, silver in color, and had a blister at the top of the saucer. The object also had windows. The object rose slowly for about 100 feet, moved forward, rose again about the same distance and then it was gone at a high rate of speed. (Blue Book files, The Knoxville Journal, October 26, 1950).
