Blue Book index has two sightings for February 17, 1949, Albuquerque and Sandia Base.

Brad Sparks:
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.
