On 25th April in San Jose, two scientists were driving to their place of employment (a private unnamed company) when they witnessed a strange object traveling through sunlit skies overhead. The time was a little after 11 am when biochemist “Dr. W.” and bacteriologist, “Dr. Y.” were driving along the road. They continued to follow the strange aerial anomaly until they arrived at their company car park. There, they would exit their vehicle and take a closer look.  Over the road from their location, directly over the building that resided there, was a “small metallic-looking silver disc”. It was at a tilt of approximately 20 degrees and was rotating. One of the witnesses would later describe it as “like the motion of a disc in a water meter”. They would estimate the width of the disc to have been between four and five feet.  Neither of them could hear any particular sound from the object, certainly not what you would associate with conventional aircraft of the time. They also noticed no sign of exhaust or any other type of fuel emission. Suddenly it would burst into motion again. It would move through the late-morning sky in an arc-like motion. When it was over the railroad, it turned in the air and moving around ten miles per hour, it would head in their direction.  It was then that both witnesses noticed a much larger black object, much higher above at around an altitude of 10,000 feet. They would estimate it to be at least 100 feet across and simply hovered silently with a strange authority. Moments later, two identical large black round objects appeared as if out of nowhere.

Second Thoughts Of An Official Report

With their attention momentarily on the much larger discs above, the two doctors noticed the smaller, silver disc was now much closer. It was still approaching, and still at its calm, leisurely pace. Then it stopped moving and spinning at the same time. It remained still for a second or two before moving off at a much faster pace, climbing higher as it did in the direction of Mount Hamilton. In sympathy with it, one of the large black objects moved away in the same direction.  The two men remained where they were next to their parked car. The two black objects continued hovering before one of them set out towards the north and the other shot directly upward disappearing into the waiting cloud in the upper reaches of the atmosphere. The men checked their watches. It was 11:15 am – only fifteen minutes had passed by. Each would quickly make their way to their respective offices to immediately dictate accounts to their secretaries. Dr. W originally planned to make an official report to the nearby Moffett Field air base. However, while waiting on the line, he suddenly had visions of public ridicule from his colleagues. He hung up the phone.  Although they wouldn’t make official reports, they would speak privately and under anonymity with UFO researcher James MacDonald. The sighting, by two respected professionals no less, is certainly intriguing. And is one that would be replicated several times in sunny California over the next several weeks.  NOTE: The above image is CGI.
