This one is not listed in the original
or the upgraded
version of the Blue Book Unknowns by Brad Sparks. The information that
we have accumulated comes from the Blue Book Microfilms. The following
comes from the documents that also include the November 3 or 4th
"On 23 November 1948 at approximately
2130 hours, I was driving west on Highway 60, about 10 miles west of
Vaughn, New Mexico. I observed a ball of light, descending vertically,
which burst 100-200 feet from the ground. The conditions and appearance
were the same as occurred on 3-4 November.''
The document continues: "Colonel Hayes
stated that he did not report the incidents as he thought they might
have been connected with some Air Force exercises. He further stated
that he heard no sound or saw no aircraft during either incident, which
is understandable as he was travelling in a closed automobile.
Weather conditions were clear."
