Blaine AFB, Washington
Federal Officer incident. Multiple witnesses see low-flying object, 30 ft in diameter, tracked on http://thecid.com/ufo/uf18/uf7/187931.htm# radar, lands, leaves impression in snow.
At one o'clock in the morning Mr. Flickinger, a U.S. Border Patrol officer, had his patrol car buzzed by a bright round flying object in Lynden, Washington not far from the Canadian border. The UFO hovered, then acelerated away with the sound of rushing air.
Five witnesses, including a member of a federal agency, who was driving toward the base, saw a low-flying object, ten meters in diameter, which avoided http://thecid.com/ufo/uf18/uf7/187931.htm# collision at the last moment. He got out of the car and observed it hovering for one minute, then it flew off. at high speed. The object was tracked on radar. The same night, a round, glowing object with a dome on top landed on a nearby farm, melting snow in a ten meters diameter circle.
A flying disc was observed. It buzzed a witness. Men in black later interviewed witnesses.
One ball, about 40 feet across, was observed in cloudy weather by radar and male military witnesses, one of them an experienced observor, at an airfield for over one minute (Flickinger; Kerringer). A whooshing sound was heard.
Hynek reports witness testimony:
Object was also observed by a border patrol officer who had been alerted by radio. He was "buzzed" by apparently the same object, which was low enough so that the patrolman stopped his car, got out, and watched it move out of sight. The four witnesses and the independent officer gave the same description of the object as being about 30 feet in diameter, slightly domed, silent, and of a very intense white light.
