RADCAT Case Directory
Category 9, RADAR
|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.
June 19, 1952. Goose Bay, Labrador, Canada (BBU 1308)
2:37 a.m. 2nd Lt. A'Gostino and unidentified radar operator saw a red light turn white while wobbling. Radar tracked a stationary target that suddenly enlarged then returned to previous size, possibly a disc rotating to present wider reflective surface. 1 min. (Sparks; Be rliner; cf. Ruppelt p. 146)
On the night of June 19, 1952, Goose Bay Air Force Base, in Labrador, came in for a brief observation. Just as radar men picked up a UFO track, ground men outside saw a strange, red-lighted object come in over the field. The radar blip suddenly enlarged, as if the device had banked, exposing a larger surface to the radar beam. At the same moment the watching airmen saw the red light wobble or flutter. After a moment the light turned white and quickly disappeared. Apparently the unknown craft had gone into a steep climb. (Keyhoe, Flying Saucers From Outer Space, 52; NICAP UFO Evidence, 77; from a USAF Intelligence Report *)
The document we located tells us there were probably two separate incidents. One was a visual; the other was a radar track. Nothing to indicate a simultaneous radar/visual as keyhoe reported.
