The article below was published in the newspaper The Albuquerque Journal, Albuquerque New Mexico, USA, page 1, on July 1, 1947.


Sky Disc Seen in Navajoland

GALLUP, June 30 (AP) -- Another witness of the mysterious "dipping discs" in New Mexico was reported today. She was Miss B. A. Tillery of Newcomb, a trading post on the Navajo reservation north of here.

Miss Tillery wrote to The Gallup Independent that she and her mother saw one of the discs speed across the sky at about 7 p.m. Wednesday evening.

Art Roberts, Gallup barber, also reported seeing one sweep in from the northwest late Friday.

The latest theory advanced as to the origin of the discs came from Lieut. col. Harold R. Turner, of the White Sands Proving Ground. He said he believes they are meteorites and that a flyer stationed at the Proving Grounds saw one disintegrate about 2000 feet below his plane.

Brief comment:

When the investigation into the Roswell incident started, ufologists tried to see if there had been sightings of flying craft in the area before the alleged crash. B. A. Tillery was cited as a witness of this; Art Roberts and his June 27 sighting have been forgotten.
