An unidentified flying object was sighted at 21h45 hours UST on 12 May 1952, about 40 miles west of Roswell, New Mexico. The object was blue-green in color and its estimated altitude above the terrain was 30,000 to 40,000 feet. The object traveled three times over approximately the same triangular course. Rate of speed could not be precisely estimated but was faster than that of jet aircraft. Intensity of color brightness varied with the objects altitude.

This sighting is similar to many which has recently been noted in the press and which have been the subject of investigation by USAF.
