The following pdf file contains all of the resized Project Blue Book documents below and is now housed on the NICAP site for security reasons.

The original over-sized docs from the site are listed below:

Earlier at 7:55 p.m., Patton was flying an all-weather jet interceptor plane at 20,000 feet over Corona about 20 miles NE of El Toro Marine Air Base when there was an apparent explosion at high elevation. It was a brilliant amber color. Patton contacted a companion plane by radio and the other pilot reported he had seen the explosion too. (Reference: Long Beach Press-Telegram, Jan. 29, 1953, page 1)

Earlier at Corona, at 6:05 p.m., USAF T/Sgt. George Beyer saw five 25 ft green spheres fly in V-formation, then change to trail formation at which time the end objects turned red.

There were unverified reports that planes were sent aloft from Norton AFB and March Field to chase similar objects.  1 Washington Daily News 1/30/53  2 Jet Pilot Chases Fiery Disc
