Before me, the undersigned Authority for administering oaths of
this kind, personally appeared one James H. Hudson, Cpl, ASN 13220873
who, being first duly sworn by me, disposes and says;
The following information came over Plan 62:
This observation was made in Kentucky at the scene of the P-51 crash with
an 8" telescope:
1. Height, 4 miles.
2. Width, 43 feet.
3. Height of object, 100 feet.
4. Speed at time, 10 mph
5. Shape, Cone.
6. Color, red with green tail.
This observation was taken at Godman Field, Kentucky, with a theolite:
The following is my opinion: The object is not a comet or star, but was man made.
It was not a balloon, comet, star, aircraft of known type. The light did not come from
an aircraft's running lights. The whole object appeared to be surrounded with a burning
gas or something that gave a light.
