Here is the report filed by the Air Force, found on page


Savage stated that he realized that the object was not a conventional aircraft when it was at a 45-degree angle from him. It appeared elliptical and as it moved closer it seemed perfectly round and flat. It had no appearance of being spherical and had a ratio of diameter to the thickness of approximately 10 to 1, appearing thicker in the center. He judged the altitude to be "between 10,000 to 18,000 ft and the object left no trailing effects. The bulk seemed to be that of 6  B-29's at an altitude of approximately the same height. The speed was three times that of a jet-propelled aircraft, . There were no protrusions and there was no noise although he thought he detected a swishing sound "like the rushing of air" after this object had passed him. The sound was not loud and did not last very long. He did not know if it was his imagination or expectation.  The color appeared frosty white at all times. The object appeared to diminish in size and speed as it moved away in a direction of 350 degrees to the north. Savage was sure that the object was not a meteor and it was his opinion that it was radically built and power - possibly atomic.
