the altitude (i.e. appeared low), it is apparent that the object must have been a comparatively great distance from all the observers. The fact that the observers in Grand Rapids and and over Cooperville did not observe a tail or trail can be explained by the fact that they were farther away from the object.
The actual flight path of the object was probably high over Ontario, Canada. It would probably be possible to determine the exact location by collecting reports or interrogations in Canada. It is not believed that this would be worth the effort, however, as it would still not definitely identify the object unless it had been observed by competent astronomers.
It is concluded that the object observed in South Michigan on 24 November 1954 was a large meteor-like object that probably passed over Ontario, Canada, or upper New-York State.
