Blue Book index
has two sightings for February 17, 1949, Albuquerque and Sandia Base.
Cases 23 and 24 are apparently the same object viewed at different or
overlapping times on its trajectory. Case 23 is truck driver
Herman Wilcox at about 6 PM (actually 5:57) from near Grants, NM, and
Case 24 is UNM Prof. Marvin May at 5:57 PM from Albuquerque (who with
his training in meteorite tracking with LaPaz has the more accurate
time than the truck driver). There were also about 100 guards at
Sandia Base including the Officer of the Guard, sighting it at
5:59-6:06 PM evidently.
