[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on January 1, 1978, in Corpus Christi, Texas, USA, an object was observed, and occupants of the craft were seen in cloudy weather by one male witness named Tercek, on the shore.

The source is indicated as "CUFOS, J. Allen Hynek Center for UFO Studies".

Points to consider:

I found no other indormation on this case - of course, "CUFOS" as source is unhelpful.
