This is a massive, 85-page, chronology of UFO incidents and events for 1967
. Our thanks for these chronologies must go to our documentation team: Richard Hall (the original 1967 chronology from UFOE II and a huge updated file), William Wise (Project Blue Book Archive), Dan Wilson (archive researcher), and Brad Sparks (Comprehensive Catalog of Project Blue Book Unknowns). Last, but not least, our thanks to Jean Waskiewicz who created the online NICAP DBase (NSID) that helped make it possible to link from the cases to the reports themselves.

The year, 1967, encompassed a major part of the most intensive and long-lasting UFO sighting wave of all time. The wave was a U.S. and international UFO sighting wave that actually began in 1966. Not only was this a massive sighting wave involving nuclear equipped missile shutdowns, but also a number of humanoid incidents were reported along with the usual ground and air incidents. Other information pertaining to the wave are explored in the following reports, the first one available from the Fund for UFO Research; the others online on the NICAP site:

  • On April 21, 1967 the Strategic Air Command reached the level of 1000 operational Minuteman I and II ICBMs.
  • It is extremely interesting, too, that it was actually 1966 when the US reached a peak of 31,700 of stockpiled nuclear warheads. The year 1967 had 30,893 stockpiled, the third highest total, and 1965 had 31,642 stockpiled warheads, 2nd highest total.
  • This was also the year of the third Arab/Israeli war (June 5-10).
  • By year's end Project Blue Book received 937 UFO reports, even though they classified only 17 as unidentified.
Regarding the incident at Malmstrom on March 16, the 142-page report by Robert Salas and James Klotz can be ordered at Faded Giant. Other missile incidents are explored in the paper by Robert Hastings,  "UFO Sightings at ICBM Sites and Nuclear Weapons Storage Areas" For information on missile deployment, see To Defend & Deter.

The latest update comes from Ref. 3 (see footnotes) by Jacques Vallee, and lists cases from the USSR.

The 1967 UFO Chronology

Jan., 1967 (Unknown date); Galesburg, IL
City, county, and state police were dispatched to an area west of Galesburg, Illinois after reports of sightings of a large UFO, "bigger than a trailer", with blue lights and a funnel on top were received. One Knoxville farmer and several motorists reported that the UFO "was round, big as a house, had no flying lights, but let off a greenish-blue light." Vibrations from the craft could be felt in the farmer's truck as it followed him along the Victoria blacktop about 7:00 PM. ( Skylook 41, p. 13)

Jan. 3, 1967 (approximate); New Richmond, Indiana
Dome-shaped object hovered over car, roadway brightly illuminated. Forward motion slowed, unable to accelerate, loss of steering control (Section VI).

Jan. 5 [25?], 1967; Winsted [Howard Lake?], Minn. (BBU)
4:30 a.m. Civilian man [Lenz?], 32, driving to work stopped to check his 1964 Chevy truck when its engine stalled. He then saw an intense light to his right, coming closer, then landing on the road, so he locked himself inside the truck. Object 75 ft diameter 30 ft high settled on tripod landing gear, an elevator-like device came down, and a man dressed in blue coveralls with "a glass fishbowl on his head," of medium height, seemed to check something then left. (Vallée Magonia 812; FUFOR Index)

Jan. 5, 1967; Philadelphia, PA
5:40 p.m. EST. A bank employee and three others watched a disc-shaped object with alternate red and green lights around it. The object circled over the area and emitted a buzzing sound. Each time it reached the western part of the circle, it stopped and changed to a vertical position, only the red lights visible and brightening, then it flipped back and resumed circling as before. After 45 minutes it shot away to the south. From the point where it disappeared, a square object sped into view going north. This object had a dim, blue-green light on each corner. Shortly afterwards, many aircraft were active in the sky. (U.F.O. Investigator, Vol. III, No. 11, Jan.-Feb., 1967, p. 4.)

Jan. 6, 1967; Harwich, MA
11:45 p.m. EST. A man and his daughter saw a thick, double-convex (lens) shaped disc with a dark upper surface, trapezoidal sections of fluorescent light on the lower portion, and pulsating colored lights (body lights). The object responded to house spotlights by blinking in the same sequence (light reaction). (Air Force report form in Colorado Project files.)

Jan. 7, 1967; St. Louis, MO
5:45 p.m. CST. A man first saw 4-5 square lights in a tilted row (body lights). The object, a domed disc shaped like a straw hat with flickering lights on the dome, then turned bright red. It appeared to be metallic. It hovered, tilted, leveled off, and sped away. (Letter dated 1/21/67 in NICAP files.)

Jan. 7, 1967; Goose Bay AFB, Labrador, Canada (BBU)
11:05 local time. (changes date to Jan 7). An airman radar operator of the 641at AC&W Squadron with his scope on 20 mile range picked up a target. The controller estimates its speed for the first eight sweeps to be 200 knots. During the next four sweeps its speed was 2100 knots 2,400 mph). The target was held for twelve sweeps then was lost off the scope. The radar was an AN/FPS-93.  The object appeared on two different radar sets operating on different frequencies and then was seen by an experienced pilot of a MAC C-97 aircraft. (Project 1947)

Jan. 9, 1967; Lake St. Clair, Detroit, MI
2:30 p.m. Photos by Grant and Dan Jaroslaw, Mt. Clemens, Michigan, four Polaroids depicting a flying saucer. The boys claimed that they observed the saucer pass over low and silently not far from their home. The object remained in view for ten minutes, after which they reported seeing an Air Force helicopter give chase. Dr. Hynek examined the photos and stated in a Detroit News article that there appeared to be no indication of a hoax. Unfortunately, it was. In 1976 the Jaroslaw brothers admitted to perpetrating the prank.

Jan. 9, 1967; Malta, Montana
9:00 p.m. MST. Alerted by their dog, (animal reaction), a farm family saw a large rectangular object that had glowing red light along the bottom and a large amber light on top (body lights) moving at high speed. It landed in a field where it remained for an hour with the red glow its distinguishing feature. Then the object suddenly disappeared as if it had taken off at high speed. (Billings Gazette, Montana, 1/20/67, copy in Donald E. Keyhoe Archives files.)     

Jan. 10, 1967; Bruceville, IN
8:30 p.m. EST. A woman and her son, 16, were driving home when they saw an elliptical dull gray object glowing a bluish color around the rim. It was estimated to be 25 feet over the car, 30 feet in diameter and 8 feet thick. The object hovered, moved slowly, then accelerated away. It displayed a disc shape when it banked slightly, and it had several dim lights (body lights) on its rim. (Ridge, 1994, p. 19. from APRO Bulletin No. 15.)

Jan. 10, 1967; Bangor, PA
10:50 p.m. EST. An electronics technician heard an intermittent sound that changed in pitch, then saw over the treetops two brilliant lights. Each light was dome-shaped and had a ring at the outer circumference. The objects maintained a constant position relative to each other. They moved, hovered, and then faded. A light beam was emitted to the ground, then disappeared. The initial lights then reappeared and the objects departed vertically at high speed. (Narrative from witness in Donald E. Keyhoe Archives files.)

Jan. 11, 1967; Aveyon, France
Cat. 3.  White ball, oval near ground, whistling sound, heat, paralysis, car vibrating, road sign. (Flying Saucer Review, Vol. 17, No. 1; See Rodeghier, 1981, p.31)

1:30 a.m. CST. A 9-year-old saw a circular object with lighted dome, numerous body lights, short wings, three wheels hanging down, a door, and windows. A strange-looking man wearing a crinkley green suit stood in the door, sometimes illuminated by a rotating red light. The object hovered over a field, circled the house, and flew away. (Report from a dairy farm owner, Iola , KS, in NICAP files.)

Jan. 13, 1967; SW New Mexico, NW of El Paso, Tex., to Flagstaff-Winslow, Ariz. (BBU)
10 p.m. Pilot Carl M., an FO, and a passenger Jimmie Moran on a Lear Jet 23 en route from Houston, Tex., to Las Vegas, Nev., at 41,000 ft and 300 knots airspeed (Mach 0.82 or about 540 mph TAS) on a 300° heading saw a flashing [?] red oval luminous object in the 10 o'clock position. Object split into 4 similar red oval objects vertically a number of times, each separated by about 2,000 ft and each emitting a "red ray," then retracting the lowest objects up into the top object. Albuquerque radar tracked the object 39 miles ahead of the Lear jet moving on the same heading, with no transponder signal and at that moment the object blinked off visually for 30 seconds then blinked on. Albuquerque control contacted a National Airlines DC-8 over Casa Grande, Ariz., whose pilot confirmed the Lear pilot's reports. Albuquerque control warned the Lear that the object suddenly darted towards the Lear at high speed within seconds until the radar blips merged [possibly 39 miles in 10 seconds or roughly 14,000 mph]. Object flooded the Lear with intense red light so bright the pilot had difficulty seeing his instrument panel, and it maintained position in front of the Lear for a few minutes then, then blinked out then came on again and started falling back behind the left wing, then pulled forward again. (When the object blinked off radar at Albuquerque controllers would lose the object then regain it when it blinked on again (?).) Both UFO and Lear jet made left turns over Winslow, Ariz., then Los Angeles Center radar picked up both targets. Past Flagstaff the object climbed at a 30° angle disappearing to the W in <10 seconds. (Hynek UFO Experience chapter. 7, case RV-1; NARCAP; BB files??)

Jan. 15(?), 1967; Boxford, MA
3:00 a.m. EST. A witness saw a bright red object that looked like an upside down saucer (disc) with a white glowing rim. The object approached and circled the witness's home before moving away and disappearing. (Fowler, 1974, p. 343.).

Jan. 15, 1967; Granville, MA
5:45 p.m. EST. A woman and her two nieces saw a domed disc with white light emanating from portholes in its base. A humming sound was heard, and the sky and ground were illuminated by white light. Red flame jets appeared at one end when motion occurred. Speed was variable. At one point all its lights went out, and when they came back on, the portholes were showing red light. The object was seen three times within 20 minutes before disappearing. (Hartford Courant, Conn., 1/16/67; Gillmor, 1969, case 13; Keyhoe and Lore, 1969a, p. 45; U.F.O Investigator, Vol. III, No. 11, Jan-Feb, 1967, p. 4.)

Jan. 15, 1967; North Granby, CN
Unspecified time. Six miles to the southeast of Granville, MA in North Granby, Conn., two women saw a disc-shaped object with a flange around it and white beams of light from portholes. The object passed  between witnesses and a mountain.  (Springfield Union, Mass., 2/22/67, copy in Keyhoe Archives)

Jan. 15, 1967; Roosevelt, UT
6:00 p.m. MST. Two couples saw a yellow glow coming from inside a dome-shaped object estimated to be two miles away. The object hovered and moved around slowly. (Salisbury, 1974, Case 40, Table 1)

Jan. 16, 1967; Charleston, South Carolina (BBU)
(McDonald list)

Jan. 16, 1967; Warner, NH
5:00 p.m. EST. A motorist noticed a bright light seemingly pacing him. A long cigar-shaped object with amber windows eventually came toward him on a slow and steady course, and he heard a soft purring sound. On one side was a blinking red light. Two very bright white lights were on the ends of protrusions sticking out from the sides near the front and these lights shone ahead like headlights. A second witness (retired missionary), was alerted and she reported seeing two bright light beams pointed earthward with a dark area between. The lights were bright yellow in the center and white around the edges. (New Hampshire NICAP Subcommittee report, NICAP files.)

Jan. 16, 1967; Warner, NH
5:15 p.m. A couple in the same area reported seeing a slow-moving gray object with body lights. At 5:30 pm a woman and her daughter saw an object that looked like a box kite without paper (presumably rectangular) with two bright headlights on the front. The object was moving slowly, and hovering soundlessly, but there was a purring sound when it started to move away rapidly. All witnesses reported the object to be huge. (U.F.O Investigator, Vol. Ill, No. 12, Mar.-Apr., 1967, p. 5.)

Jan. 16, 1967; Southeastern United States
Approximately 4:30-6:30 A.M. Sodium vapor clouds from rocket launched at Eglin AFB, FL, blue-green color, visible over wide area.

Jan. 17, 1967; Freetown, IN
Francis Bedel, Jr., (23) of Portland, Indiana, was driving on State Highway 135, a two-lane blacktop road, north of Freetown, he later reported to State Police, when a brilliant glowing white light darted into his field of vision. It apparently hovered over the road for a few seconds, then slowly reversed its course. Bedel was so busy staring at the spectacle that he lost control of his car, which left the road and was badly damaged. State Police who investigated said that Bedel was not drinking and was not injured in the crash. (NICAP files)

Jan. 17, 1967; Same evening; Freetown, IN
On the same stretch of highway on the same night, Mr. & Mrs. Phil Patton of Freetown, reported to State Police that a brightly lighted disc-shaped craft, about 30 feet in diameter, came down alongside their car. Mr. Patton told State Trooper Conrad that the object moved along the highway right in front of their car and about one hundred feet distant from it. They estimated that it was about 100 feet above the road and they described it as a circular in shape and about the size of a small house. The Patton's reported to police that they heard no sound from the object but that its outstanding characteristic was the extreme brilliance of its lights, predominately red but with flashing yellow and white along the side or bottom of the thing. After a half a minute, it flashed up and away. According to state police who investigated, the description given by the Patton's was identical to that given by Francis Bedel, the young man who wrecked his car while watching a similar spectacle, about a mile from the scene of the Patton's experience. (NICAP files)

Jan.18, 1967; S. Williamstown, MA
12:15 a.m. EST. Four witnesses saw a flash in the sky just before a power failure occurred. Then they saw a domed disc with body lights. It was near the ground on the opposite bank of the Green River. A red glowing object buzzed their car as they drove away. (Air Force report, Project Blue Book files, National Archives; Fowler, 1974, p. 343.)

Jan. 18, 1967; Norton, MA
6:30-6:45 a.m. EST. A man saw a cloud-like object with flat bottom, a dome on top, and a blue stripe. It hovered over an airport, then accelerated and sped away, disappearing in 3 seconds. (Robinson letter, NICAP files.) Independent observation: At 7:00 a.m. a patrolman in Mansfield, Mass., about 6 miles north of Norton, apparently independently of the above witness, saw an object with flat bottom and domed top that appeared fuzzy and cloud-colored, with a horizontal stripe of gas-flame-like blue color. (NICAP report form.)

Jan. 18, 1967; Shamokin, PA
6:00 p.m. EST.  A family watched a disc with a red light on a projection at the rear approach at low altitude (estimated 400-500 feet), viewed through binoculars. As it neared, the object emitted two pinkish-white light beams downward at about a 45-degree angle from its forward edge. It then turned, rose suddenly, joined a second object and both sped away. (Keyhoe and Lore,1969a, p.43.)

Jan.19, 1967; Dunbar, WV
9:05 a.m. EST. The owner of an appliance store saw a dull aluminum-colored sphere with a flange around the middle and a window at the top hovering about 4 feet over the road ahead of him. He estimated it to be 25 feet in diameter. When he was 10 feet from it, the object took off and swiftly rose out of sight. Two projections like antennae were visible on the top and two legs underneath, with an apparent propeller between them that revolved slowly while the object was hovering, faster during ascent. (NICAP report; Charleston Gazette, 1/20/67; Huntington Herald 1/20/67; Keyhoe and Lore, 1969a, sketch p. 46; Flying Saucer Review, 13 (3), May-June 1967, p. 4; U.F.O. Investigator, Vol. Ill, No. 11, Jan.-Feb., 1967, p. 4, dated as Jan. 17.)

Jan. 19, 1967; Milan, IN
3:00 p.m. A photograph was reportedly taken of a UFO by Reed Thompson, a 15-year-old boy from Milan. The town constable stated that the boy was reliable and said that he had seen the photo himself. His report to NICAP Indiana Unit No. 1 stated he watched the object for 5-7 minutes before it sped off. Later, one of Indiana's field investigators, Don Worley, obtained further information and a black & white copy of the original color photo, along with a report and drawings. (Ridge, APRO & NICAP files)

Jan. 19, 1967; Shamokin, PA area
Around 6:00 p.m. Another family reported two objects, one with light beams with red/green blinking lights across the front, a halo of bright light, and two "antennae" on the top. About 45 minutes later, a pastor reported following an object in his car that had two antennae on the top near the rear of the object.  (U.F.O. Investigator, Jan.-Feb., 1967, p. 8.)

Jan. 20, 1967; Methuen, MA
6:30 p.m. EST. Three girls, 16-17 years old, were traveling in an automobile when they saw a string of 9-10 bright red lights on a dark object that was moving over a field. The object hovered, and swung around, revealing lights of a different color and configuration. When the girls stopped to watch, their car stalled and the radio and lights went off (EM effects). Four glowing body lights were arranged in a trapezoid pattern, red lights on top and white lights forming the base. The lights appeared to be reflecting off a metal surface. The object started moving slowly and then shot away at high speed. Independent observation: A second car about 3 miles away driven by an adult male accompanied by his daughter and a friend saw 7-8 bright lights flying low. (Fowler, 1974, pp. 138-43; Sagan and Page, 1972, p. xxvi.).

Jan. 20, 1967; Over Lake Ontario
10:15 p.m. EST A pilot and his three passengers saw a round, glowing white object the size of a large apartment building, with a ring of red lights around it that blinked off and on. The object was above the plane at about 2,000 feet. The pilot was so disturbed by the sighting that he aborted the flight, returned to the airfield and landed. (Letter to APRO dated April 2, 1967, posted on NICAP web site.)

Jan. 21, 1967; Gering, NE

Airliner buzzed by maneuvering cone-shaped object, took position above tail. Lights in plane dimmed, radio interference, radio compass oscillated (section I).

Feb. 2, 1967; Lima, Peru
This is the only surviving photo of the funnel-shaped flying object that paced the Fawcett Airlines DC-4 passenger liner in flight from Piura to Lima on February 2, 1967, at 06:30 P.M. The passengers were all held for interrogation by authorities after the plane landed. Several of the passengers had taken photos of the strange craft alongside the airliner, but all cameras were taken and all film was confiscated. One passenger, who insisted on remaining anonymous, succeeded in saving his film from which this single photograph was made.
Feb. 2, 1967; Sumner, IL
A well-known craftsman, who requested anonymity, reported to the Lawrenceville-Vincennes Airport that he observed an object for one and a half hours that was doing some pretty good stunts. It hovered, accelerated, changed shape and color, was observed with the naked eye, 7- power binoculars, and a 20x spotting scope. It was described as a very bright red object, flashing like a red neon sign. The upper portion was a very bright white and red and green lights were observed around the object. The object was seen in the east northeast and noticed because of its brightness arid erratic movement. It seemed to have a very thick rim (Ridge, NICAP files).

NARA-PBB86-1249 document is a table of contents for a 71-page report and  a cover page by the Foreign Technology Division, AFSC (Air Force Systems Command).

Feb. 3, 1967; Piggott, AR
Time not reported. Numerous witnesses saw maneuvering objects with domes and flashing lights. Separate (satellite) and merging objects also were reported. Dogs reacted (animal reactions). (Keyhoe and Lore, 1969b, p. 71.)

Feb. 3, 1967; Lindsborg, KS
7:40 p.m. CST (8:40 p.m. EST). Five people watched a disc or ellipse that first flew like an airplane, but then moved with irregular, jerky, up and down motions, and sometimes with hesitating forward motion. The object hovered over the highway for 15-20 seconds, then sped from sight in 15 seconds. Witnesses could see military bombing practice in the distance at the same time. (NICAP report form.)

Feb. 3, 1967; Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
8:30 p.m. EST. A man saw an object estimated to be 30 feet in diameter and 15 feet thick with a row of white lights and a tangerine-colored light on the bottom (body lights). The object zipped back and forth at terrific speed. Observations were made from various points coordinated by two-way radios. (Hamilton Spectator, 2/4/67, copy in NICAP files.)

Feb. 4, 1967; Gary, IN
7:00 p.m. CST. A woman saw two large, square amber lights with a green light between them from her home. The lights approached silently and hovered an estimated 30 feet above the ground about 100 feet away from her. One light turned bluish-white and illuminated the area (environmental illumination). A dark shape was visible behind the lights (body lights). The object bobbed about 2 feet vertically while hovering and eventually sped away. (Letter from witness, 2/5/67, Donald E. Keyhoe Archives files.)

Feb. 4, 1967; Homer City, PA

6:00 a.m. The woman reporting requested anonymity. The report she gave to the DAILEY HERALD-TELEPHONE provided the most vivid description of an unidentified flying object observed as far southwest as Oakland City and as far east as Crothersville......35 miles away. At this time she arose because of noises on the roof roof. She thought it was raining. That's when she saw what looked like a quarter moon that was moving toward her. "I watched it for a half hour," she said. "It would move, then hover, getting closer all the time. It had a bright light on the bottom. The light kept going around and back and forth an the ground like it was looking for some place to land. As it got closer I could see a bright band around the middle of it," she continued. "It was oval-shaped, sort of like a cigar. The top was shiny, like metal, and the bottom was kind of orange. There was a crater on the bottom of it--and bumps, like legs." It hovered near a utility pole behind her house for ten minutes. She said when she started to dial her telephone to call someone about it the object "turned real bright orange and then blue and took off." (Ridge, Clipping in NICAP files)

10:00 a.m. Children at Crestview Elementary School saw an object which appeared in a tree-dotted field behind the school. The next 10 minutes were chaotic.  Mrs. Virginia Martin, a sixth grade teacher, said that there was a lot of excitement. She wasn't paying any attention to what the children were pointing to at first, but was trying to set them lined up (to watch). Most of the 200 girls and boys at morning recess were running towards the school ground fence, yelling and pointing. Mrs. Martin, fourth grade teacher Bob Apfal, and sixth grade instructor Miss Marian Waters spotted the oval-shaped object hovering behind a pine tree in an open field. It seemed to move in toward the school, then went straight back and dropped below a pine tree. It then came up again and went westward. Teacher Bob Apfal exhibited no qualms. "lt was a flying saucer."  This was the second consecutive day he and his class had seen similar, metallic like objects north of the school grounds.The teachers spent Friday afternoon talking to three Air Force investigators who drove to the school from Homestead Air Force Base. Andy Cohen (who said there were two objects) became the closest to a consensus spokesman for the kids, sat in a car and told what he saw : "They looked like long cigars. They were flying apart one at a time. Some of the girls got hysterical when they saw them." Later in the day it was discovered that the UFO sightings were not limited to the children and teachers at Crestview. Mrs. Mary Troesser, called at the Herald to inquire about any "strange sightings". Mrs. Troesser had been out in the yard and happened to glance in the direction of Crestview Elementary School. "There was this oval object with red lights just over the trees . . ". (Bill Scroeder, Mike Swords, Fran Ridge)

Dusk. Confirmed by MUFON Field Investigator and State Section Director Eldon E. Ervin.  A building contractor, his wife and three children were traveling east on Interstate 80 when the wife first no­ticed a bright object to the north, just north of the intersectio of U.S. Highway 80 and Nebraska Highway 281 and adjacent to a Drive-In theatre. The observers stopped the car, got out, and watched for 15-20 minutes while the object fluttered across the Cornhusker Ordinance Plant some 3 miles west of the theatre. At times the object wobbled as low as 40 feet from the ground. Later it disappeared to the north. The family drove as far north as Silber Creek but could not sight it again. Upon returning to their home, they called the Grand Island Weather Bureau. They were told an investigator would be out in the morning, but none appeared. The local police were also called, but no one came to investigate. (Credit: Elmer A. Krai, State Director for Nebraska)

The object looked like plastic and had vertical risers evenly spaced around a "conning tower." A bright curved surface appeared to be hanging from a "brim which extended from rim to rim" of what looked like a "top hat." The object hovered, moved slowly against the wind, passing directly overhead, hovered over lava beds where it emitted two fireballs with sparkles, then two more a few minutes later. Finally it went dark and disappeared. (Ricks letter, NICAP files; The U.F.O. Investigator, Vol. IV, No. 1, May-June 1967, p. 1.)

The object circled back and emitted two huge light beams to the ground from its bottom. This appeared to be a reaction to his flashing his headlights (light reaction). Three miles away a boy in a pony wagon crashed when the animal bucked as it saw the object. Another woman said that her dogs were upset when the object passed (animal reactions). She sketched a round shape with two cone-shaped protuberances sticking out from the sides of the white ball. These protuberances contained rows of porthole-like openings. A farmer reported that the craft hovered above a field and shone its lights down. He said the lights were blindingly bright. Several witnesses, including a sheriff, reported a bright yellow light with objects protruding from it. Yet another witness reported an object that stopped for 2 minutes, then reversed direction without turning and flew directly overhead at an estimated altitude of  400-500 feet. He reported that bright lights were coming from windows on the protuberances, and a row of steady red lights was visible around the object (body lights). TV interference (EM effect) was reported by two people. (Letter from pharmacist, 4/21/67, NICAP files; U.F.O. Investigator, Vol. IV, No. 1, May-June 1967, p. 6; Keyhoe and Lore, 1969b, pp. 41-42.)

03:30 a.m. The conductor of a train, Enrique R. Galimberti and another crewmember, saw what appeared to be bright multi-colored lights about 120 meters away from the tracks. Thinking it was a fire Galimberti stopped the train and both armed with fire extinguishers attempted to approach the area. As they approached the area they saw what appeared to be multicolored lights moving around in a circular motion, both then observed behind the light what appeared to be a square metallic object over 3 meters in width and about the same in height. It had several lighted windows around its edge. At the front it had what appeared to be a "rotating wheel" that emitted multicolored flashes of light. Around the object several short humanoid figures were walking about. These were wearing silvery gray shiny uniforms, appeared to be bareheaded and appeared to be carrying what resembled a "rifle" or weapon-type object on their shoulders. At one point the witnesses used the train horn in an effort to elicit any reaction from the figures but there was none. Another railway employee, Salvador Pomidoro reported seeing the square metallic object on the ground in the same location about 15 minutes before.

Night. A witness who requested anonymity (name on file) experienced engine failure (EM effects) on his car and then saw a 40-foot long elliptical object that emerged from behind a shed and hovered 15 feet from his car. The object tilted toward the car at about a 30-degree angle. Static was heard on the car radio, and the dashboard temperature gauge went off the dial. The driver felt an intense wave of heat when he put his head out the window, and his hands burned when he touched the horn rim and dashboard. He also reported headaches and partial loss of vision (physiological effects). (White letter, 5/29/67, copy in NICAP files.)

May  2, 1967; Montezuma, IA

1:43 a.m. MDT. A motorist on U.S. 91 heard a loud hum, stopped the car, and saw a 40-foot diameter, amber-colored, circular object with domed top hovering 20-30 feet overhead. He shot a pistol at the object and heard the bullets ricochet. The witness was a hospital employee in Paradise Valley, Calif. (Salt Lake City Tribune, 5/7/67, copy in NiCAP files; U.F.O. Investigator, Vol. IV, No. 1, May-June 1967, p. 6; APRO Bulletin, May-June 1967, p. 6 (case misdated as May 13.)

May 6, 1967; Schirmeck, Bas-Rhein, Germany
7:00 p.m. LT. Seven lenticular (disc-shaped) black objects, aligned diagonally, each with a diameter estimated as 50 feet or more, were seen above a grove of trees about 2 km away. Each had a "smoky halo" around it. The objects suddenly vanished, then reappeared and vanished again, leaving traces in the forest. Truncated light beams ("solid light") were emitted from three of the objects, one white and two greenish. Although the beams did not reach the ground, a band of light was visible on the ground beneath them. A larger object was seen near the ground. A flexible light beam was also reported that detached from a lenticular object and then retracted itself. (Haines, 1994, pp. 91-92, from UNICAT catalogue #403.)

May 7, 1967; Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
2:00 a.m. MST. A 14-year-old boy and four others saw a spherical object with spinning top and bottom and with red and green lights (body lights) which they followed and observed for 4 hours. As it hovered at about 200 feet altitude, a "white ribbon of light" (light beam) was emitted from the bottom of the object illuminating the ground. A "muffled whistling noise" was heard as the object hovered. Then a "screaming noise" like a jet engine starting up was heard, all lights went out, and the object took off with 7-8 explosive sounds. Black streaks were found on the charred road surface (physical traces). (Edmonton Journal, 5/8/67, copy in Donald E. Keyhoe Archives files; U.F.O. Investigator, Vol. IV, No. 1, May-June 1967, p. 3; APRO Bulletin, May-June 1967, p. 7; Phillips, 1975, p. 48.)

May 8, 1967; Chester Heights, PA
11:00 p.m. EDT. A woman saw a round object with four red lights (body lights) in a curving row and a very bright center light that flashed on and off.

(Witness letter, NICAP files.)

May 9, 1967; Beloit, WI
9:05 p.m. CDT. On the same evening, about 200 miles north-northeast of Champaign, Illinois, a woman heard a hissing sound, then saw an object with flashing blue, red, green, and yellow lights. The object "swayed, jumped" and shot out of sight. (The Daily News, 5/10/67, copy in NICAP files.)

May 10, 1967; Wayne County, IN
3:00 a.m. EDT. Fishermen saw a missile-shaped (elongated) object that had a glowing red ball at each end. A white glowing object seemed to land and grew increasingly bright causing the witnesses to fear an explosion. Witnesses left to get the sheriff. No physical traces found. (Ridge, 1994, -? P-22.)

May 11, 1967; Wareham, MA
2:05 a.m. EDT. Four witnesses saw two inverted-dish (saucer) shaped objects with rotating lights. The objects hovered, descended behind trees into a bog, bobbed up and down like a yo-yo, and sped away when police shone a light at them (light reaction). (Fowler, 1974, p. 348.)

May 11, 1967; Torrance, CA
This picture, although a fairly clear shot, does not have a lot of details. Taken on a Saturday night, a group of pals, Allen, Bobby, Rick, and Danny were hanging out when they saw this object that "glowed reddish-white." One of the boys had a camera, and allegedly took this photo.

May 12, 1967; Putney, England

May 13, 1967; Colorado Springs, CO
4:40 MDT. At the Colorado Springs airport an object was picked up on radar. During this time a Braniff flight was coming in for a landing on runway 35. The track of the object behaved like a ghost echo, perhaps a ground return being reflected from the Braniff aircraft. The object blip appeared at about twice the range of the Braniff blip. When Braniff touched down, however, the situation changed radically. The UFO blip pulled to the right (east) and passed over the airport at an indicated height of about 200 ft. The object track passed within 1.5 miles of the control tower. The object was not visible even through binoculars by personnel in the control tower. This case was written up in the SCIENTIFIC STUDY OF UNIDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECTS, conducted by the University of Colorado, and it was stated there: This must remain as one of the most puzzling radar cases on record, and no conclusion is possible at this time. It seems inconceivable that an anomalous propagation echo would behave in the manner described, particularly with respect to the reported altitude changes, even if AP had been likely at the time. In view of the meteorological situation, it would seem that AP was rather unlikely. Besides, what is the probability that an AP return would appear only once, and at that time appear to execute a perfect practice ILS approach? (Wilson)

May 13, 1967; Vermillion, SD
8:00 p.m. CDT. A University of South Dakota faculty member and five others saw a lens-shaped object (disc) that passed under clouds, turned over, and changed direction (maneuvered). (Witness report, 7/18/67, in NICAP files.)

June 18, 1967; Woodsocket, Rhode Island
The photo actually appears to be from a much earlier time period as it has a strange resemblance to an Adamski ship of the 1950s. Probable hoax.

June18, 1967; (Falcon Lake) Shoal Lake, Ontario, Canada
Evening. A family crossing the lake by boat saw a shiny, metallic-appearing oval object with a slight rise on top. The object was an estimated 30 feet in diameter and 15 feet thick. When the object approached the witnesses' boat, it took on an orange tinge. As the object descended, the tops of trees on the shoreline were illuminated. Twice the family approached the object, but retreated as the object swept toward their boat. No sound was heard. Others on shore were alerted during the 15-minute sighting, and one person reported static on the radio (EM effects). Trees with wilted leaves on top were later noted (physical effects). (Bondarchuk, 1979, p. 31-34.)

It then took off and flew away over a hill. (Rapid City Journal, 7/2/67, copy in NICAP files.)

July 1967 - Memo Found
The most famous scandal began after Colorado Project (2) coordinator Robert Low wrote a private memorandum to the administrators of Colorado University back on August 9, 1966, to brief them on the project's aims. In July of 1967, Roy Craig, who did work very conscientiously as a researcher for the Colorado study, came across the memo and innocently showed it to project member, Dr. Norman Levine. Levine and another project participant, Dr. David Saunders, were appalled by a short passage on page five of that memo suggesting irregularities in the study's aims. During a secret meeting in early December with Hynek and James McDonald, they revealed its contents. McDonald, then a NICAP board member, made the memo public because it demonstrated in his mind a clear bias.

July, early, 1967; Taipei, Taiwan
Time not reported. Personnel at Yuanshan Observatory saw a red, cigar-shaped object that flew low and fast to the southwest. They observed it through a telescope.

July 3, 1967; Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Dr. J. Allen Hynek stated: "best daylight disc photograph I have personally investigated. That says it all! Warren Smith and two of his friends were returning from a weekend prospecting trip when they spotted the object. Smith grabbed the camera, and took two photos of the object. Definitely one of the best of the early days.

July 3, 1967; Nr. Richards-Gebauer AFB, MO
9:30 p.m. CDT. At least seven adults saw a highly reflective disc with three bright orange lights on the rim (body lights) approach from the northeast going on a southerly course.

5:15 a.m. PDT. At least five witnesses from two independent locations saw an odd oblong, metallic-appearing object with a brilliant light on top and a smaller light on the bottom near the front (body lights). Two policemen and a businessman described it as a dark gray flattened sphere with a brilliant light beam on top directed upward, and a smaller and dimmer light on the bottom directed downward. A dark band circled the midsection. Two men north of Corning independently saw the object. The witnesses estimated a diameter of 50-100 feet. At first the object appeared to be hovering, then it moved slowly at a few hundred feet above the ground, finally picking up speed and disappearing from view to the south after being visible for about 10 minutes.

July 25, 1967; Southern part of State, MI
11:30 p.m. EDT (10:30 p.m. CDT). A woman and several teenagers about 1,200 miles to the southeast reported a very similar phenomenon. They saw 5-6 objects radiating bright white lights "wobbling" over a field. When a plane flew into the area, the objects (lights) rapidly disappeared after turning bright red (color change/speed correlation). As the color changed, dogs in the area howled (animal reactions). (Stinson letter, NICAP files.)

July 26, Rowley, MA
11:15 p.m. EDT. A woman looked out her bedroom window when she heard a loud whining, whirring sound and saw a glowing orange object in the sky. Others in the neighborhood also saw and heard the object. Seven miles away to the northwest, the superintendent of a military school heard a loud intermittent whistling sound, but could not find the source. (Fowler, 1974, pp. 151-52, 349.)

July 26, Dauphin, PA
11:20 p.m. EDT. A woman saw a red light hovering near her house and illuminating the interior of her house.

July 27, 1967; Farmville, NC
12:30 a.m. EDT.  Two witnesses saw an orange-yellow, "tri-level" object with lights coming from the upper area, apparently from within. The object appeared to be spinning. It hovered, crossed the highway, and was joined by three other objects (rendezvous). (Greenville Reflector, N.C., 7/28/67, copy in NICAP files.)

July 27, 1967; Newton, NH
1:00 a.m. EDT. Three people, including an electronics technician and former Air Force radar operator, and a laboratory technician and former Navy radar operator, saw an orange-red star-like light that began to move. Through a telescope they could see an elongated oval object with bright white lights at front and rear (body lights). Other red and white body lights were visible, a string of white lights along the side flashing in sequence. When a flashlight was shone at it, the object responded by reversing direction without a turn and flashing its lights back in the same sequence (light reaction). When a jet approached the object, its lights disappeared until the aircraft had passed (aircraft avoidance). Afterwards the object reappeared as a brilliant white oval. Additional signals were flashed at it, and the object responded in kind. After responding to a pattern of four light flashes, the object disappeared behind trees. (Fowler report, 8/14/67, NICAP files; NICAP report forms; U.F.O. Investigator, Vol. IV, No. 2, Oct. 1967, p. 3; Fowler, 1974, pp. 152-55, 349.)

July 27, 1967; Alexandria-Leesville, LA
2:00 a.m. EDT. Throughout several states, distress calls were heard on Citizen's Band radio from a pilot whose plane reportedly crashed. The pilot said that a red glowing object with a bright glow toward the tail approached the side of the aircraft and then the tail, forcing the aircraft down. The Civil Aeronautics Board reported a plane down and the pilot killed, but to the northeast of this area and at 8:00 pm on July 27. No apparent follow-up investigation report. (Shreveport Times, LA., 7/28/67, copy in NICAP files.)

Oval object approached fire lookout tower, hovered, illuminated ground (section IX).

July 28, 1967; Pacheco Pass (Gilroy), CA
9:30 p.m. PDT. A state forestry employee at a fire lookout tower saw an oval blue-white light coming toward him at low altitude, a dark band visible around the middle (see July 4, Corning, Calif.). A bright white light also was visible on the top (body lights). The object alternately hovered and moved around, circling the fire tower. At one point it emitted a blue-white light beam which illuminated the ground. As the object circled the tower, the citizen's band radio emitted a variable pitch whining noise (EM effects), interfering with any effort to communicate. Finally the object accelerated and sped away leaving a comet-like trail behind it. (NICAP report form; U.F.O, Investigator, Vol. IV, No. 2, October1967, p. 3; Gillmor, 1969, case 28.)

July 29, 1967; Arnold, CA
1:00 a.m. PDT. Two witnesses saw an orange light "like a ball of fire" that approached from the horizon.

Radar contact with an unidentified object was reported. (Campbell letter, 8/31/67, NICAP files.)

Aug., No date given, 1967; Venice, CA
Daytime, PDT.  A summer school class and teacher saw a disc-shaped object that was making a loud roaring noise. The object moved directly overhead, now making a sound like an "electronic police car siren." It moved in a corkscrew fashion over the school, hovered, making the roaring sound again. Witnesses went indoors as the noise was hurting their ears. (Amos letter, 9/26/68, NICAP files.)

Aug. 1, 1967; Chester, PA
9:00 p.m. EDT. The wife and daughter of a pastor saw three red, metallic-appearing, saucer-shaped objects with domes and portholes. Two were in the north, and a third approached from the north, brightened and changed color to white as it neared. It then flew at tree-top level and hovered at low altitude near the witnesses. Finally it climbed fast and disappeared. The object was estimated to be about the size of a two-engine plane. (WXUR News report, copy in NICAP files.)

" I am more convinced than ever that a positive program in extraterrestrial life or communications studies should not be tied to the UFO problem...I am convinced that we would really open the flood gates on UFO problems if the public thought that the Condon group was about to get involved in extensive research on extraterrestrial activities." - Brig. Gen. William Garland (NARA-PBB87-602)

Aug. 9, 1967; Grey Friars, Stattordshire, England
2:30 AM. A disc-shaped object about the size of a rugby ball was sighted by a married couple in Grey Friars. It flashed blue lights all around its rim, and seemed to be spinning in time with sound coming from it. It caused their dog to begin barking. The witnesses reported that they were too frightened to sleep after their encounter. Later that evening another close encounter occurred in Weston-on-Trent, England. The witness reported a "dull penetrating sound," then sighting a red light that moved up, down, and "all over the place." This witness's dog also whimpered, barked, and scratched at the door in response to the UFO. The noise persisted throughout the night, even after the UFO had gone. (Source: Roger H. Stanway & Anthony Pace, UFOs Unidentified Undeniable, p. 6).

Landing report. Source and details unknown.

Aug. 23, 1967; Joyceville, Ontario, Canada
4:00 a.m. EDT. A man drove down a side road to investigate a green light he saw in a field. His headlights illuminated a large, metallic-appearing disc on or near the ground. It was shaped like an inverted bowl and had three legs. The witness saw three beings about 3-4 feet tall and wearing helmets (humanoids). They appeared to be gathering specimens. When the beings noticed the witness, they "flew" (floated) into the object and it took off silently at high speed. Burn marks and impressions (physical traces) were found at the site. Reportedly, the police at nearby Perth had a similar sighting. (Hall, 2001, p. 480; MUFON UFO Journal, August 1987, p. 19.)

Aug. 23, 1967; Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
9:45 p.m. EDT (8:45 p.m. EDT). A commercial pilot saw a series of white lights that flashed on and off at 1-2 second intervals. Ground radar showed a target at the approximate location of the lights, and said that the object was in the sky and lower than 50,000 feet. The pilot lost sight of the lights after about a minute, but Halifax radar tracked the objects as they moved from 36 to 16 miles from the aircraft and the blips were still on radar after the aircraft continued on its way. The object also was reported by a separate ground witness. (Letter from witness, 8/31/67, NICAP files; U.F.O. Investigator, Vol. IV, No. 2, Oct. 1967, p. 1; Weinstein, 1999, p. 36, from Flammonde, 1976.)

Time not reported. (Beauford Sea) - Officials at Cape Perry Distant Early Warning radar site saw a large, translucent spherical object moving so slowly it was in the vicinity for 10 hours. It did not register on radar. The object was also reported by witnesses in a light aircraft. (Bondarchuk, 1979, p. 160.) [All features strongly suggest a large plastic research balloon. Local authorities often have no information about them, since these balloons drift for hundreds of miles.]

Aug. 24, 1967; Wodonga, Victoria, Australia
5:00 p.m. LT. A man riding a motorcycle was surrounded by bright blue-white light that illuminated the road. As he stopped, a bright lens-like (double convex) disc estimated to be 25-30 feet in diameter, with a dome on top descended within a few feet of the ground about 100 feet away. Two humanoids about 5 to 5.5 feet tall with round helmets and silver suits emerged. One stepped nearer the witness, who fled. The object, surrounded by a pinkish glow, followed the motorcycle flying about 100 feet off the ground. A humming sound was audible above the motorcycle's engine. The witness stopped again and the object stopped and hovered, the hum subsiding. After 30 seconds the color around the object changed from pink to brilliant red, and the object tilted up at a 45-degree angle, then shot away (color/motion correlation).

Aug. 30, 1967; Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire, England
10:00-10:30 p.m. LT (6:00-6:30 p.m. EDT). Multiple independent witnesses had a complex series of UFO sightings. One witness gave a detailed description of an object first seen with unaided eye, then through a telescope. It moved vertically and horizontally, changing colors from white to red, orange, and green. Through the telescope it was seen as a disc with dome, a row of "ports" around its base, apparently rotating slowly. The object glowed a bright orange, but changed to brilliant white or silvery while hovering (color change/motion correlation). At one point the object emitted a light beam to the ground. Other sightings in the area featured "bright" or "brilliant," often red-orange objects that alternately hovered and moved around. (Stanway and Pace, 1968, pp. 29-34.)

Aug. 31, 1967; Cussac, France

9:30 p.m. LT (5:30 p.m. EDT). Two young women reported watching a large, silvery-white object shaped like an inverted soup bowl (dome-shaped) that approached and hovered over a high school for about 5 minutes. The object had body  lights of various colors and evenly-spaced  circles of  light  like portholes around the lower part. A loud "whooshing" wind-like sound was heard. At each side and above the altitude of the object were shiny flat discs that appeared to be revolving. As the larger object moved away with a rocking motion, its body lights went off, leaving a bright orange and a fainter white light. Dull moonlight and rainy conditions. (Stanway and Pace, 1968, pp. 10, 34-35.)

Aug. 31, 1967; Lewisberry, PA
8:35 p.m. EDT. A woman, her sister, and her children saw a dark gray, disc-shaped object with a row of white lights on the bottom (body lights). It moved toward them at low altitude, hovered over the yard, and slowly moved off until no longer visible. The object appeared to be spinning, and a red light was seen as it departed. Harrisburg airport control tower had reported an odd cloud the same day. (Pennsylvania NICAP Subcommittee report, 10/4/67, NICAP files.)

Evening. A truck driver saw a green oval object with double decks (like two flattened bells, one above the other) hovering near the ground. It appeared as big as a truck and almost close enough to touch. Beeps were heard over the truck radio during the sighting and the engine died (EM effects). (Calgary Herald, 9/5/67, copies in NICAP files.)

Sept., No date, 1967; DeSoto, MO
12:30 a.m. CDT. Two couples saw five round objects with flashing, multi-colored lights. The objects circled and maneuvered rapidly in the sky. Barking dogs (animal reactions) first attracted the witnesses' attention to the objects. (DeSoto Press Times, 9/25/67, NICAP files.)

Sept. 2, 1967; Bentilee, Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire, England
9:15 p.m. LT (5:15 p.m. EDT). Several witnesses watched an orange disc with bright red glowing dome as it flew low overhead and apparently landed in a field about 400 yards away. No sound was heard, but one witness felt "wind" as it passed overhead. A fiery glow was seen in the field at the apparent landing site. Police were called, but the light disappeared. Later police and others saw a luminous object rise from the field, hover, then disappear "in a fraction of a second." A complex case with many facets. (Stanway and Pace, 1968, pp. 11,13, 40-43; witness interview transcripts 46i-46xii.)

Sept. 3, 1967; Rockport, MA
1:00 a.m. EDT. Many witnesses saw two yellow-orange lights that were stationary  in  the sky and blinking off and on randomly. Police radar reportedly suffered interference (EM effects) at the time of the sighting. (Massachusetts NICAP Subcommittee report, 9/12/67, NICAP files.)

Sept. 3, 1967; Edina, MN
5:07 p.m. CDT. A man saw a silver sphere that approached an incoming aircraft on an apparent collision course. The object passed above the aircraft at close range and disappeared in the distance. It appeared to be about one-fourth the size of the plane and traveling twice as fast. (NICAP report form.)

September 4, 1967; Yevpatoriya, Russia
9:17 p.m. N.N. Pronin, senior editor with the "Mysl" publishing house in Moscow, accompanied by his wife, saw a white, crescent-shaped object fly over from the northeast to the southwest along a straight line at an altitude of about 2,500 feet. The object moved with the convex part facing forward. The weather was clear. (Ref. 3)
Sept. 5, 1967; Port Townsend, WA
2:00 a.m. PDT. Four witnesses saw a white, dome-shaped object come from behind a hill and appear to land on a golf course. A burned ring (physical traces) was found on the golf course next day. (Port Townsend Leader, 9/7/67, copy in NICAP files.)

Sept. 5, 1967; Nantwich, Cheshire, England
8:55 p.m. LT (4:55 p.m. EDT). Two witnesses saw a brilliant white oval, its light flickering, hovering in the northeast sky. After about 2 minutes, the object began moving, accelerated rapidly and disappeared in the west. No sound was heard. (Stanway and Pace, 1968, p. 14.)

Sept. 5, 1967; Waterford, CT
9:40 p.m. EDT. A man saw a dark, metallic-appearing, cigar-shaped object with a red glow at one end and a white light at the other (body lights). As the object crossed the sky, a bright white light flashed three times amid the red glow. (NICAP report form.)

Sept. 6, 1967; Meier, Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire, England
9:50 p.m. LT. Several witnesses saw a vertically oriented "sausage-shaped cloud" in the eastern sky, behind which a light flashed for about 20 seconds at irregular intervals. A bright, glowing orange oval then emerged from the "cloud" and headed southeast at "fantastic speed." A light again flashed in the cloud for about 10 seconds, then stopped. Scattered clouds, dull moonlight. Mode of disappearance of the "cloud", not reported. (Stanway and Pace, 1968, pp. 14-15.)

Sept. 8, 1967; Newton, NH
10:30 p.m. EDT. Four people saw a Saturn-shaped object with two white lights on its leading edge. Pinkish lights were visible along its rim, and a red light on top (body lights). The object crossed the sky, returned, and crossed again, and apparently responded to lights flashed by witnesses (light reaction). These same witnesses had a similar sighting on July 27. (Massachusetts NICAP Subcommittee report, NICAP files; Fowler, 1974, p. 349.)

Sept. 10, 1967; Barcelona, Spain
5:35 p.m. GMT (1:35 p.m. EDT). Just before sunset, an airliner crew flying northbound at 16,000 feet watched a metallic, maneuvering cone, with point upward and with mist around its lower portion. The object turned, changed course, descended and approached the airliner, passing under its starboard wing at an estimated 600-700 knots and disappearing to the south after 2-3 minutes. (Hall, 2001, p. 130 from: Volunteer Flight Officer Network, report via United Airlines; McDonald, 1968b, Case #6, reprinted in Vaughan, 1995, pp. 127-28; MUFON UFO Journal, Sept. 1987, p. 19; London Daily Express, 9/11/67 and 9/14/67; U.F.O. Investigator, Vol. IV, No. 3, Nov.-Dec. 1967 p. I.)

Sept. 10, 1967; Shepherdstown, PA
10:35 p.m. EDT. Two men in separate cars stopped and discussed their sighting of a bullet-shaped object with a flashing red light on each end (body lights) and a white glow on the bottom, that moved slowly across the sky at low altitude. (Pennsylvania NICAP Subcommittee report, 10/4/67, NICAP files.)

Sept.11, 1967; Port Elgin, Ontario, Canada
3:30 p.m. EDT. Six or more employees of a nuclear power plant saw a saucer-shaped object passing over the plant going east. The object hovered about 1.5 miles out over the lake and dropped something into the water. Reportedly the object returned two nights later and for the next five nights, the assumption being made that it was trying to retrieve the dropped object. (Bondarchuk, 1979, pp. 122-24.)

Sept. 11, 1967; Silver Spring, MD
9:30 p.m. EDT.  A couple and their five children saw a flash of bright orange light, then resolved into a bright light seemingly mounted on an object about the size of an automobile. The object appeared to make a search of a park area, moving back and forth and in figure 8's, at about 200-300 feet altitude. The sighting lasted about 2 hours, until witnesses went inside. At one point, the witnesses said, they signaled with a flashlight and the light immediately moved toward them (light reaction). (Letter and visit to NICAP Office 11/8/68, NICAP files.)  [Except for the reported light reaction, which easily could have been illusory, the report fits to a "T" with the motion pattern of a NASA instrument calibration aircraft with which NICAP was familiar, and it caused several other false UFO reports. NICAP had access to its schedule. It is important to note that, except for some inaccurate size and distance estimates-a very common error-the witness reports of the phenomenon that they observed were sufficiently accurate to allow a definite explanation.]

Sept. 11-12, 1967; Kincheloe AFB, MI (BBU)
10:42 p.m.-12:01 a.m. A senior radar operator with 7 years experience tracked 17 unknowns in an 80-minute period. The unknown targets gave stronger, harder returns than a B-52 flying in the area. Most of the targets were tracked one at a time, hovering, slowing, speeding up, changing direction. In one of two instances when two were tracked at a time, two targets joined up and both went east at 2,000 mph. These passed overhead, but witnesses saw nothing. A B-52 pilot was alerted to a potential collision course with a target, but the pilot saw nothing. (McDonald, 1970.)

Sept. 12, 1967; Arlington, VA
12:35 p.m. EDT. A witness in the vicinity of Washington National Airport saw a silver disc with a dome (sombrero shape) hovering, then it banked and moved out of sight behind trees. (Phone call from witness, 9/12/67, NICAP files.)

Sept. 13, 1967; east Bridgewater, MA
10:53 p.m. EDT. A man saw a row of orange-yellow lights (body lights) with a vague form behind them. The object hovered, changed to one light, then returned to its original appearance. The lights were seen three separate times as the witness changed position and tried to get other witnesses. (Letter from witness, 9/15/67, NICAP files.)

Sept. 13, 1967; Southbridge, MA
Evening, time not specified. Multiple witnesses, including a pilot, saw a cigar-shaped object with a row of white lights (body lights) on the side. The object hovered and maneuvered around, and once appeared to approach an airport as if to land. (Southbridge Evening News, 9/14/67 and 9/15/67, copies in NICAP files.)

Sept.14, 1967; Kanagulk, Victoria, Australia
Night. A man saw an object shaped like an inverted bowl (dome-shaped) flashing red and white for 10 minutes. The object hovered, moved to another position, and hovered again. The man's car radio would not work (EM effect) during the sighting. (Unidentified newspaper clipping, NICAP files.)

Sept. 14, 1967; Washington, DC

Sept. 14, 1967; Barstow, CA
7:50 p.m. PDT (10:50 p.m. EDT). A man saw n a green light in the sky that sometimes appeared white. It circled, zigzagged, moved up and down (maneuvered), and appeared to circle an aircraft. (NICAP report form and letter, NICAP files.)

Sept. 15, 1967; Winsted, CT
7:50 p.m. EDT. Two witnesses saw a red-orange, clam-shell-shaped (disc), fuzzy object move across the sky. The object stopped and hovered, then moved away. (NICAP report form.)

Sept. 15, 1967; Winsted, CT
8:50 p.m. EDT. Separate witnesses in Winsted reported seeing a large glowing, pulsating object hovering nearby and several small beings with large heads (humanoids) moving around it. The object's  light dimmed when cars approached. (Report in NICAP files; Gillmor, 1969, p. 347.)

Sept. 17, Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais State, Brazil
Time not given. Two witnesses reported that a saucer with portholes landed on a soccer field. (Beings seen in association with the object were over 6 feet tall, hefty, used breathing apparatus, and had bulging eyes.  Physical traces were left by the object. (Baltimore Morning Sun, Maryland, 9/25/67, copy in NICAP files.)

Sept.18, 1967; Cannock, Staffordshire, England
9:00 p.m. LT (5:00 p.m. EDT). A family had several sightings of red lights like glowing coals beginning about 8:30 pm. At 9:00 pm, two red lights glided in front of a full moon, disappearing behind nearby rooftops. When silhouetted against the moon, the lights were seen to be attached to a larger object. The body lights were positioned near the bottom center. The object was grey and shaped like a "saucer upturned on top of a disc" (lenticular disc). In a direct comparison, the diameter of the object was 3-4 times that of the moon (1.5-2.0 degrees of arc). (Stanway and Pace, 1968, p. 15.)

Sept. 18, 1967; Sault Ste. Marie, MI
6:00 p.m. CDT (7:00 p.m. EDT). A woman saw a flat, round (disc-shaped), dark-colored object with a band of light around its circumference. The object landed in a field, ascended, then moved out of sight. No traces of the landing were found in the field. (Evening News, Sault. Ste. Marie, 9/20/67, copy in NICAP files.)

Sept.19, 1967; Belgogradskaya, Russia
7:40 p.m. A witness named A. Serdyukov, who was traveling with a group of communications technicians, observed a luminous half-moon rising high in the sky directly in front of them. It descended rapidly, leaving a cone-shaped tail. The men stopped their vehicles to watch it. After about forty seconds the half moon appeared to swing in the sky, becoming smaller in size, as its color turned to red. It assumed a drop-like shape and stopped, hanging in the sky for a minute, after which it seemed to dissolve. (Ref. 3)

Sept. 20, 1967; Bucknall, Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire, England
8: 30 p.m. LT. At twilight, with a clear sky and bright moon, seven witnesses watched a large, bright silvery oval move slowly overhead, stop, and hover. Two (possibly three) smaller bright round silvery objects emerged and sped off in different directions. One dropped vertically and one moved back in the general direction the parent object had come from. The parent object then moved away slowly and disappeared in the distance in the direction of Leek, Staffordshire (Stanway and Pace, 1968, p. 16.)

Sept. 20, 1967; Leek, Staffordshire, England
Around 8:30 p.m. Three witnesses saw a very bright round, slightly oval object "bright as a car headlight" hover overhead in the clear sky for about 30 seconds. The object then began moving away slowly toward the east, suddenly accelerated, stopped abruptly and hovered again for about 15 seconds. Finally it accelerated and shot away to the east at "fantastic speed" and disappeared into distant clouds. (Stanway and Pace, 1968, p. 16.)

Sept. 21, 1967; Barcelona, Spain
12:30 a.m. Small beings (humanoids) with large heads and white garb were seen moving toward a brilliant round object on the ground. Their car was lifted (mass displacement) and witnesses were in shock. (Ballester Olmos, 1976, p. 12.)

Sept. 23, 1967; Amherst, MA
1:37 p.m. EST. A geology professor saw an elongated, silver object and then a second similar object about 5 degrees from the first. The objects flew straight, parallel paths at steady speed, no sound, no wings, and no change in brightness over 40 seconds. They disappeared into low cumulus cloud and never emerged. (Hall, 2001, p. 161; letter to Raymond E. Fowler, Massachusetts NICAP Subcommittee Chairman, copy in NICAP files; Fowler, 1974, p. 349.)

Sept. 23, 1967; Mount Holly Springs, PA
9:35 p.m. EDT. A policeman saw two lights, one was stationary. The second light moved toward the first, and the two merged. The resultant single light hovered, then divided, with one light moving away and the other remaining motionless. (Pennsylvania NICAP Subcommittee report, NICAP files.)

Sept. 24, 1967; Minot, ND
10:30 p.m. CDT. A podiatrist and his wife saw two disc-shaped objects with domes on top. They first appeared as a string of lights flying at high altitude. The string of lights split up and dove below 10,000 feet. Then the two discs separated, one moving away to the north-northeast and the other to the southeast. (North Dakota NICAP Subcommittee report, received 11 /7/68, NICAP files.) [Minot AFB Minuteman ICBM Complex]
Sept. 25, 1967; Tavigny, Buret, France
Daytime. Two hemispherical objects with flat bottoms were seen by a woman to emerge from some mist. The objects were about 65 feet in diameter, and had a 5-foot-thick rim around the bottom, and a chrome-like surface. At one point, a small red ball of light came out of each object. One of the objects flew around a house and the other seemed about to land, then both rose and flew off. (Haines, 1994, p. 84, from UNICAT #629.)

Sept. 25, 1967; Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Night. Five policemen saw a white light that moved at low altitude over the highway ahead of a pursuing police car. The object suddenly stopped, then veered and accelerated away. (Toronto Telesram, 9/25/67, copy in NICAP files.)

Sept. 28, 1967; San Mateo, CA

Sept. 30, 1967; Lakewood, CO
9:45 p.m. MST. A couple and their children saw a hat-shaped object (disc with dome), an "antenna" extending from the top that moved steadily in level flight across the sky, hovered, and dropped three fireballs. (Colorado UFO Project report form, NICAP files.)

Early Oct. 1967; Sukhumi, Russia
Noon. Engineer V.N. Chechyanov and his coworkers saw a strange object in the clear blue sky for half an hour. It hovered for a while, then moved along the shore, rose and disappeared. A man who watched it through binoculars reported that the object was shaped like a triangle, with no fuselage and no tail, and was the color of aluminum. (Ref. 3)

Oct., No date, 1967; Glencoe, Ontario, Canada
Night. Three adults and their children saw a cluster of unidentified red and white lights that seemed to be spinning as they apparently paced the witnesses' car. The lights then hovered over the farm when the car stopped, and then moved away. (London Free Press, Ontario, 10/12/67, copy in NICAP files.)

Oct. 2, 1967; Rockford, IL
Time not reported. A policeman, an FAA specialist, and another man saw an unidentified silver-white, egg-shaped object. (Omaha World Herald, Nebraska, 10/3/67, NICAP files.)

Oct. 2, 1967; Melville, NY
7:30 p.m. EDT. An aircraft company engineer and his children saw a white disc with rectangular windows, and a white light on top (body lights). A white light beam from the bottom illuminated the ground. The window lights blinked in sequence. The object hovered at low altitude, then moved slowly off. The witness tried to follow in his car. When he blinked his headlights, the lights on the object blinked out in sequence (light reaction). (Hall, 2001, p. 161.)

Oct. 2, 1967; Ipswich, MA
8:30 p.m. EDT. Four witnesses who were together plus two other single, independent witnesses saw red, greenish blue, and white lights (body lights) apparently on an oval object that gave off a yellowish glow. At times the object glowed red all over. It hovered, spun, and moved up and down slightly. Dogs were barking (animal reaction) during the sighting. (Massachusetts NICAP Subcommittee report, NICAP files; Fowler, 1974, p. 350.)

Oct. 4, 1967; Nova Scotia, Canada - Shag Harbor Crash/ Retrieval Incident
Evening, ADT. From early evening until 11:30 pm, numerous independent witnesses observed unexplained aerial activity. Near Sambro at 9:00 pm,  the captain and crew of a fishing boat saw four brilliant red lights in a box formation that appeared to be on or just above the water. Occasionally one would flare up so bright that it would cause an afterimage in their eves. The objects also were tracked on ship's radar. Between 11:00 and 11:30 pm, northwest of Briar Island, the captain and crew of a fishing vessel saw a brilliant white light the size of the moon. As they watched, three brilliant yellow lights emerged and formed a triangle around the larger light. The satellite objects then moved across the sky and back at high speed. Observations also were made by other vessels. Lower (southwest) portion of Nova Scotia, opposite Maine. Sambro is about 12 miles southwest of Halifax. During this same time interval 5 miles southwest of Weymouth, in the general direction of Briar Island, a policeman and three game wardens saw an orange-colored light just above the tree line moving silently and slowly with spark-like objects emanating from the light. At about 11:20 pm just west of Shag Harbor, teenagers in a car saw an object flying low, flashing four lights, one after the other, in a straight line. It appeared to be slowly descending at a 45 degree angle. When next seen, the object had impacted the water's surface 200-300 yards offshore. It drifted on the surface showing a pale yellow light. Boats were sent out to rescue passengers from a presumed downed airliner, but searchers found only a dense yellow foam. (Ledger and Styles, 2001, pp. 14-17, 21-44.)

Oct. 5, 1967; Johnson City, TN
10:15 p.m. EDT (11:15 p.m. ADT). Multiple witnesses reported an object with blinking multicolored lights, three portholes, and a prism-like component on the bottom that emitted light rays. The object hovered, moved slowly, sometimes rising and falling, and ascended. (Johnson City newspapers of 10/5/67 and 10/17/67, copies in NICAP files.)  

Oct. 6, 1967; Vandenberg AFB, CA
7:00 PM. Vandenberg AFB radar detected a very large stationary object some miles over the Pacific off the Northern California coast. Later, radar detected numerous small, but strong, targets traveling eastward in irregular flight. The location and time of Case #35 was listed in the Condon Report as "South Pacific, Fall 1967." Dr. James McDonald looked into the case but I couldn't find any record of his actual findings and comment. 

Oct. 10, 1967; Bow River Forest, Alberta, Canada
Time not reported. A forest fire lookout saw an oval object with a rim around the circumference and a green light on top. The light rotated, and when the object moved it turned white (color/motion correlation). The object hovered, then moved off and disappeared emitting four blue flames as it departed. (London Evening Free Press, Ontario, 10/16/67, copy in NICAP files.)

Oct. 10, 1967; Leek, Staffordshire, England
7:00 p.m. LT (3:00 p.m. EDT). Three witnesses using 7 x 50 binoculars saw a yellowish oval with a small dome on top, a yellow light rotating around the dome. The object also had one red and two green body lights that pulsated off and on. As the lights pulsated, the color of the object changed from yellow to white. At 7:30 p.m. a similar object shot across the sky, stopped and joined the first object (rendezvous). Both objects were gradually obscured by clouds. (Stanway and Pace, p. 16.)
Oct. 11, 1967; Aldersyde, Alta, Canada
7:50 p.m. MDT. A woman reported that a dark oval object with a dome on one side circled above her car. The car's electrical system went dead during the sighting (EM effects) and restarted after the object departed. The witness felt cold (physiological effects) during the sighting. (Unidentified clippings from Calgary newspapers, copies in NICAP files; Rodeghier, 1981, p.37)

Oct. 11, 1967; Unitah Basin, UT
8:30-9:00 p.m. MDT. Many people, singly and in groups, independently reported seeing a brilliant reddish-orange object moving south to north. It was described as a large, flat-bottomed dome (hemisphere) with pulsating red, green and yellow lights (body lights). A man driving a truck into the mountains reported that a luminous orange object approached and hovered over a truck, changing to green and blue. Its light illuminated the ground as bright as day. The object followed the truck then departed at high speed. (Salisbury, 1974, p. 55-61.)

Oct.12, 1967; Roanoke, VA
6:37 p.m. EDT. A man saw a bright, blue-white sphere hovering over a mountain. The object moved laterally when an aircraft approached it (aircraft avoidance), then accelerated and sped away. Witness had seen similar objects before. (NICAP report form.)    .

Oct. 12, 1967; Dubuque, IA
6:30 p.m. CDT. Seven children saw a silver, egg-shaped object with legs that appeared to be preparing to land in the yard where the children were. The object moved off when the children approached. It was estimated to be the size of a picture window. Reportedly a similar object was seen several hours later over a nearby town. (Stars 6t Stripes, 10/15/67, NICAP files.)

Oct.13, 1967; Bt. Elnora and Mirror, Alberta, Canada
1:50 a.m. A locomotive engineer reported that his freight train was paced by an unidentified object for 30 miles. The object once came within 100 yards. was seen to be flat on the bottom with a dark dome-like structure on top (domed disc). It was estimated to be 40-50 feet wide and 15-18 feet tall. The underside was circled by brightly colored, blinking lights of red, yellow, orange, and blue-green (body lights) that seemed to be recessed into the object (not protruding). The bottom center had a large white light about 10 feet in diameter. A vapor-like light trailed the object. The engineer called the attention of other railroad employees to the object. Possible EM effect noted on radio. (Keyhoe and Lore, 1969a, pp. 10-11.)

Oct.14, 1967; Ouray, UT
7:45 p.m. MDT. Two men in a car saw a sharp-edged, bright orange object shaped like a "haystack on fire" (hemisphere), flat on the bottom, that rose from on or near the ground emitting blinding light as their car approached. It moved at "terrific speed" and circled across the face of the nearly full moon, blotting out a fraction of the moon for a second. No sound was detected. The object ascended vertically and disappeared. (Salisbury, 1974, pp. 53-55.)

Oct. 17, 1967; Edmonton, Canada
1:50 AM. The object was sighted one mile N of Elnora by several of the train's crew. Elnora is about 35 miles SE of Red Deer. Engineer William (Ben) Benwick): "If I'd had a sling-shot, I could have knocked it down". It was an unidentified flying object that Benwick and other crew members of the CNR 443-North speed freight say followed them early that Friday morning. Mr. Benwick, of Calgary, said the object flew alongside the train at a distance of about 100 yards. On one occasion, he said it dived toward the train and came much closer. At first he had been reluctant to report the incident to a newspaper. "I thought everybody would take me for a nut," he said. He told The Journal that the train was going at about 50 mph at the time and that the UFO followed along. When they stopped at Alix to drop off a car, it stopped also and "Just hung there." It then followed the train all the way into Mirror. Benwick described the UFO as being a little more than the length of a boxcar in diameter, about 40 feet. It had colored lights around the rim which flashed red, green, orange, and yellow. Its top cone was black, and underneath there was a circle of glowing light, about 10 feet in diameter. "When we got to Mirror, I told the operator there about it, and he asked what I had been drinking. I told him: 'There it is, right in front of you,' and he just said: 'My God'." The CNR operator at Mirror, Larry Mazure, later told Mr. Benwick that the UFO hovered about 15 miles east of Mirror for two hours more before it left. The same night, Mrs. David Soppit, who lives about five miles west of Mirror, reported to The Journal that she had heard a humming or whirring noise, and when she looked out the window she saw an extremely fast moving light in the sky. The following night, the engineer of another freight train, Hubert Schmidt, also reported the sighting of a UFO.

Oct.17, 1967; Holmeschapel, Cheshire, England
6:00 p.m. LT (2:00 p.m. EDT). A truck driver on the M6 Motorway watched a dark circular craft moving parallel to his path for 5-1/2 miles as he drove at 35-40 m.p.h. He stopped and got out to better observe the object, which was disc-shaped with a rim around the center and had illuminated portholes. He heard a whirring sound and rush of air and saw what appeared to be exhaust flames issuing from the rear portion of the rim. Finally the object turned and, with a "sliding" motion, moved across the Motorway, accelerated, and departed at "incredible speed" back in the direction it had come from. (Stanway and Pace, 1968, pp. 17, 44-46.)

Oct. 17, 1967; Somerset County, NJ
9:20 p.m. EDT. A policeman and another man saw red and green lights in a square pattern that glided, hovered, ascended, then divided into two groups which moved off. A popping sound, like fireworks, was heard during the sighting. The object or group of lights once approached when a spotlight was shone at it (light reaction). (Plainfield Courier-News, N.J., 10/18/67, NICAP files.)

Oct.17, 1967; Roosevelt, UT
10:00 p.m. MDT. A couple saw a large orange, ball of light that hovered over a corral. It was joined by a second orange ball (rendezvous), and they flew away together to the east. (Salisbury, 1974, Appendix B, Table 1, case 54.)

10:04 p.m. PDT (11:04 p.m. MDT). A woman saw an egg-shaped object which swooped down, skimmed over rooftops, stopped, retreated, then fell to the ground. Initially it appeared like a balloon with orange fire at one end and seemed to rotate and wobble. When stopped, it became a ball of fire that expanded as if about to explode. When it retreated it diminished to a bright light, then to a flowing ash before falling. (Letter from witness, 10/23/67, NICAP files.) [Very probably a flare or candle-carrying hoax balloon, often made from a laundry bag, which were common at the time.]

Oct. 18, 1967; Pyatigorsk, Russia
6:00 p.m. Astronomer Z. Kadikov, from Kazan Engelgardt observatory, saw a bright object in the northwest. It was a crescent with sharp edges and pointed horns, yellow in color with a pale bluish tail, moving at about 1.5 degrees per second. It became smaller as it flew and was eventually reduced to a point. Finding other witnesses, Kadikov was able to triangulate the phenomenon. He estimated it may have been about fifty miles above the earth and some 1,800 feet between the "horns," flying at about three miles per second. (Ref. 3)

9 p.m. John Herbert [and Sonnier?] saw a bright, fiery ball flash 4 times while moving E, just above tree tops. (Berliner; FUFOR Index)

Oct.19, 1967; Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada
9:45 p.m. MDT. Five teenagers saw a disc with two white lights at one end and a red light at the other (body lights). The object appeared to be spinning. It swooped down from high altitude, leveled off, and moved away at high speed. (Unidentified newspaper clipping, NICAP files.)

Oct. 20, 1967; Milledgeville, GA
4:36 a.m. EDT. Two police officers reported that a bright red ellipse followed and illuminated the interior of their patrol car. Later police sightings that morning very possibly or probably were astronomical. (Hitt, 1999.)  

Oct. 21, 1967; Blytheville AFB, Arkansas (BBU)
6:16 a.m. 2 control tower operators and an observer at the S end of the runway saw 2 dark oblong table-latter shaped objects with 7 ft long exhaust at about 1,200-1,500 ft height fly E to W, tracked by RAPCON radar at a distance of 2 miles, make a turn to the SW when they disappeared. (Hynek UFO Exp ch. 6, case DD-3)

Oct. 22, 1967; Newnan, GA
4:30 a.m. EDT. Two police officers saw a ball of white light flying at treetop level. They stopped to get a fix on it, then tried to approach it, but it apparently outdistanced them so they turned back. The object then reversed course and began following them. Some sightings during this period appear to have been of astronomical objects, but in this case the object gained on them, caught up, began climbing vertically and emitted a bluish light beam that illuminated the roadway, then "zoomed up into the sky." (Hitt, 1999.)

Oct. 22, 1967; Maritimes, Nice, France
3:38 p.m. LT. Two witnesses saw a metallic-appearing sphere with a dark central band. The object crossed the sky quickly in a zigzag pattern. (Report from local investigator, NICAP files.)

Oct. 22, 1967; Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Evening, CDT. Two real estate salesmen saw three brilliant, 2-3 foot diameter, pulsating red lights floating over a field, apparently body lights on a larger craft. A car stopped with six people who also saw the lights. Two similar objects (apparent craft with body lights) appeared, one illuminating the low cloud cover as it descended, and took up positions relative to the first object (rendezvous). The three objects then silently moved away in formation, changing positions to form a triangle. Through binoculars, they could see the shape of the craft behind the lights against the lighter background of the sky, resembling rectangular masses of black glass. Dipping and bobbing, the formation approached power lines, lighting the lines with a red glow as they flew by. They moved to a TV tower area, now appearing as three pulsating orange-red lights. After 5 minutes, the objects broke formation and flew away to the northwest in single file. Physical traces, including small footprints, were found in the field at the site where the object had been seen hovering. One witness reported a bad headache, leg ache, burning on the face, chills, and other physiological effects suggestive of exposure to ionizing radiation. (Bondarchuk, 1979, p. 47-50.)

Oct. 22, 1967; Humboldt, Saskatchewan, Canada
7:45-8:00 p.m. CDT. Two witnesses saw three lights that were about 4 feet in diameter. The two outer lights were orange/amber and blinked or flickered. The center light was a bright red inverted teardrop shape that moved up and down at regular 2-3 second intervals. The lights were seen intermittently for a half hour as they followed a truck, appearing to descend to within 3 feet of the road surface. The truck made a U-turn, and the lights reversed their direction so the truck was then following them. The lights moved away and blinked out. A few minutes later, one of the witnesses saw a dark object the size of a locomotive in a field. (Clausen report, NICAP files.)

Oct. 22, 1967; Milledgeville, GA
Night. Two groups of policemen about a half-mile apart, while in radio communication, saw a glowing orange-yellow, cylindrical object rise from near the ground about one-quarter of a mile away from one of the groups. The object ascended from a pecan grove between the two groups. One group of police saw the object between them and a higher elevation tree-line about a mile away. The object rose and sped out of sight. Its shape was compared to an old-fashioned water-tower tank. (McDonald letter, 12/1/68, Donald E. Keyhoe Archives files.)

Oct. 22-28 (exact date unknown), 1967; Lancashire, England
4:00 a.m. LT (12:00 midnight EDT). Interference on VHF radio (EM effects) caused a witness to go outside where he saw a cigar-shaped metallic object with an incandescent glow and portholes, and heard a whirring sound. Other witnesses included police officers. (Unidentified newspaper article, copy in NICAP files.)

Oct. 23, 1967; Bristol, Avon, England
4:50 a.m. LT. A woman saw a cigar-shaped object, slightly narrower at one end, with a blinding blue light. Hovering near it were three separate, smaller orange and yellowish lights or objects. All hovered for 15 minutes except for one, which left and returned. It rose into low clouds when an airplane neared (aircraft avoidance). (Hennessey report, NICAP files.)

Oct. 23, 1967; Carlisle, PA
1:30 a.m. EDT. A man saw a silver egg-shaped object with a light blue ring around the center. The object hovered and then flew away, the blue ring changing color to bright pink (color change/motion correlation). (Pennsylvania NICAP Subcommittee report and NICAP report form.)

Oct. 24, 1967; Hatherleigh, Devon, England
4:00 a.m. LT. Two policemen saw a bright cross-shaped light that moved at treetop level with witnesses it in pursuit. The object appeared to land behind some trees, but took off before witnesses could reach the site, though they estimated approaching to within 40 yards of the object. The object was later observed to rendezvous in the sky with a similar object. The same or a similar object was seen by other policemen this day and the following day. (Unidentified newspaper clippings and letter from local investigator, NICAP files.)

Oct. 24, 1967; Castine, ME
6:45 p.m. EDT. A man saw three oval orange lights in step formation which ascended by constantly repositioning the bottom light to the top, the bottom light fading out and then appearing in the top position. This cycle repeated and the formation ascended. (Letter, NICAP files.)

Oct. 24, 1967; Newfield, NY
9:30 p.m. EDT. A disc-like object with a knob and antenna (protrusions) on top approached in a tilted down position. Two humanoid figures and control panels were visible through windows. The object then tilted back and shot out of sight. Hand-held radios had static during the sighting (EM effects). (Hall, 2001, p. 458, from: APRO Bulletin, Sept.-Oct. 1967, p.10; Gillmor, 1969, pp. 376-78, case 38.)

Oct. 25, 1067; Wentworth Valley, Nova Scotia, Canada
3:15 PM. Raymond Putnam, rear brakeman on "The Cabot" with Canadian National Railways, was travelling between Halifax and Moncton. He opened the upper half of the door on the left side of the last car, to get a breath of air and glanced up the side of the train by Wentworth Station and saw over the trees a UFO. At first he though it was something falling from the sky because there was green vapor billowing from the top of it that he later thought might be the exhaust end of the object when it was in flight. The UFO was tracking alongside the train at treetop level, negating Putnam's first impression that it was falling. The brakeman tried to watch it but at this point it was giving off such a terrific light or radiation that although it was daylight he had trouble looking directly at it. He put his hands up to cover his face and peered through his fingers, first with one eye, then the other. When he looked away, he had difficulty believing what he was seeing and would look again to reassure himself that he was not imagining it. Fascinated, Putnam continued to watch the UFO as it tagged along beside the train and sometimes just behind it, but still off to the side. Sometimes it would swoop upwards to the tops of the mountains a bit away from the train then would come back to it as the train clacked through more moderate terrain. As it drifted away it seemed to bank, like an aeroplane, "at a 45-degree angle with its rear-top end to the left and later rolled on to a quarter turn so the flat sides were up and down." Suddenly a jet dove down from a high altitude and converged on the object, coming up on it from behind and directly toward the "exhaust end" of the UFO. The object leveled out and a short thin exhaust issued from behind it. Strangely now the object began to elongate turning into a cigar shape, then a cigar shaped cloud, then a long cloud. The cloud/UFO accelerated away to the west and to the left of the sun with the jet in hot pursuit. Two other witnesses. 35 mins. Medical effects. (MUFON's Nova Scotia Director, Steve MacLean, Don Ledger) [See detaied report linked below]

Oct. 25, 1967; Otradnoy Stanista, Russia
4:05 p.m. Witness N. Savrasov, an advanced geography student, and his mother-in-law were able to observe two spherical objects flying from the northwest to the southeast. The largest object was yellowish, cloudy. The smaller one, which seemed to be pulling it, appeared metallic. (Ref. 3)

7:10 a.m. LT. Two couples saw a soft glowing orange ball (sphere) that changed to long star shape (cross shape) which disappeared leaving a black ball with pinpoints of light on each side. The object hovered for 2 minutes, then crossed the sky and disappeared. (Hennessey report received 12/11/67.)

Oct 26, 1967; Rock Hill, SC
Dusk, EDT. Two women saw a silver bell-shaped object with red revolving lights at the top (body lights) and an apparent row of windows around the upper portion. When the object moved, the lights turned blue (color change/motion correlation). Before it departed the object appeared and disappeared several times while apparently following the car. (Unidentified newspaper clipping, NICAP files.)

Oct. 26, 1967; Newton, NH
9:30 p.m. EDT. Four witnesses saw a dark object with two horizontal rows of red lights, a green light, and a white light (body lights). The object circled, hovered, reversed direction (maneuvered) and emitted a humming sound. Dogs in the area barked and whined (animal reactions) during the sighting. (Fowler, 1974, p. 350.)

Oct. 26, 1967; South Dorset, UK
11:25 p.m. LT. A former BOAC airline pilot and photo interpreter saw a transluscent object with a center chamber and four "fuselages" that changed position relative to the center. The object had a long thin projection in front and three together at the rear. It descended at high speed until it was 200-300 feet above the ground about one-quarter of a mile away. As the object hovered for 22 minutes, the fuselages (each estimated as 75 feet long and grooved along the bottoms) moved into a cross shape. The object rotated 90 degrees and remained motionless. The translucence of the object made it take on the color of the sky, and it changed hue as clouds passed over. The object then returned to its original configuration and sped off. Two dogs with the witness were extremely distraught (animal reactions). (Hennesey report, NICAP files; Good, 1987, pp. 61-63; Keyhoe and Lore, 1969b, pp. 35-37; Flying Saucer Review, Jan.-Feb. 1968, p. 3; U.F.O.

3:00 a.m. EDT. The pilot of a Piper-Twin Comanche, plus two pilots and a passenger on board, saw a " bright light, then visible as six huge, round, bright-white lights in a horizontal row on a darker object (body lights). It approached on a collision course, and was seen to be a gray equilateral triangle with a triangular opening at its center. The object made an un-banked 180 degree turn, then took off and disappeared in a flash. (Haines, 2000, pp. 58-59.)
Oct. 27, 1967; Parshall, ND
3:00 a.m. CDT (4:00 a.m. EDT). A waitress driving home saw a large, round, revolving object with alternating triangular areas of coloration. The object was low and moving horizontally an estimated two blocks away. As it paced her car, she saw 2-3 white streaks of light (light beams) coming down vertically from the object. Her car gave the impression of having flat tires or of having rocks hitting the bottom of the chassis. A second witness, a police officer, saw a low-altitude, bright round light like a welding-torch which illuminated the ground. The object moved slowly with vertical oscillations, and changed color from blue to green-white. It departed vertically, disappearing in 5 seconds. [Parshall, North Dakota, is located near the (H) Hotel Flight Launch Facilities Minot AFB ICBM Complex]

7:15 p.m. LT (3:15 p.m. EDT). A witness saw an object dropping vertically from the sky. The object stopped about 100 feet above the ground and hovered. Its shape was like "squared off" spinning top with a dark band around the center. The top section pulsated from bright to dull orange every few seconds, while the bottom section remained a constant red. The glow from the object lit up the sky around it. A soft humming sound could be heard, and a gray "vapor trail" was visible behind it. The witness felt a cold sensation all over his body. After about 10 seconds, the object 5 accelerated and sped out of sight to the north in about 30 seconds. (Stanway and f, Pace, 1968, p. 18.)

Nov. 9, 1967; Nr. Erin, TN
11:45 p.m. CST. Two nurses driving home from a Waverly, Tennessee hospital stopped for a traffic light in Erin, Tennessee. While stopped they saw a large UFO approach and land on the highway in front of them. Without the driver "feeding gas or anything" the car began to move of its own accord until it stopped a mere thirty feet or so away from the semi-transparent craft. Inside the craft there were at least five small figures looking at them. The women felt completely unafraid and transfixed. The craft rose up and moved away and the women began eagerly to follow it. It "led" them to a rural road where they saw it land. The lights on their car went out. The next recollection was of the object high in the sky leaving them, but they perceived no time lapse nor did they ever check the time. (MUFON Sympap 81, p. 23)

December 12 Meeting
Important event regarding University of Colorado UFO project (2) under AF contract takes place. At this December 12 meeting, Dr. David Saunders, Norman Levine and Robert Low's Administrative Assistant, Mary Lou Armstrong were surprised to hear that James McDonald knew about the Low Memo, apparently from Donald Keyhoe, so they decided to give him a copy so he would at least know for certain exactly what it said and not have to rely on hearsay.  McDonald briefly mentioned the memo in his own lengthy 7-page critique of the Project sent to Low himself on Jan 31, 1968, and this is what got Saunders and Levine fired a week later, on Feb. 8, 1968. (Sparks)

Dec. 12, 1967; Grand Rapids, MI
