Unidentified Objects Seen In X-15 Films

SEATTLE (AP) — The second instance of observation of unidentified objects at high altitude was reported Thursday by X-15 pilot Joe Walker.

Walker told a scientific conference that films taken during his recent flight to a record height of 246,700 feet showed the presence of five or six objects of undetermined size at some distance from the plane.

The film was taken by a camera mounted on the X-15's fuselage.

The mysterious objects, apparently disk-shaped, showed up on the film as the X-15 arced over the top of its flight and headed back toward earth.

"I don't feel like speculating about the nature of these objects," Walker said. "All I know is what appeared on the film in later study. I saw nothing myself during the flight of this nature."

Walker mentioned the objects only briefly in a panel discussion at the second annual conference on the peaceful uses of space.
