APRIL 30, 1958 …….PERTH AMBOY NEW JERSEY
I had been assighed to a Nike Missile sight in New Jersey. At about 3 am I observed an object enter the very edge of my radar scope. The entry range was 160 nautical miles. I had never had an object at that range before. I started tracking and noting the speed of the object, it was moving at a rate of about 700 knots. I had never had anything that had ever moved at that speed before. I immediately got on the line with my reporting system at Fort Wadsworth, on Staten Island and advised them of my track. The line went dead for a little while and then my duty officer came on the line and asked me what the heck I was doing sending canned plots in there. I tryed to explain that this was for real and I was told that we don’t have any thing that can fly that fast and if I keep sending this stuff I will be put up on court marshall charges. Needless to say I was a newbie and didn’t want to get in trouble so I sat there and watched it go from one side of my scope to the other which was a total of 320 nautical miles. Didn’t take it very long either. I estemated its altitude was aroung 70,000 to 90,000 feet. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
This case is under investigation by Chief Investigator Glenn Green of MUFON N.J.
