Flying Object Tracked On Radar, Mysterious Circle In Gravel Pit

From Journal News Services

New reports of strange lights In the skies over the United States and Canada added today to the mystery of unidentified flying objects.

A shimmering white object traveling north at high speed was reported seen by several persons in Sarnia in western Ontario. They said it altered course two or three times.

At Sulfridge Air Force Base in Michigan a spokesman said the object was tracked briefly on radar.

Some 30 persons — including an off-duty deputy — phoned the sheriff's office in Washtenaw County to report seeing objects overhead in the Ann Arbor area with flashing red, white and green lights.


Meanwhile, at Hillsdale, south of Ann Arbor, William Van Horn, civil defence director for Hillsdale County, investigated a circular marking in a gravel pit about a mile north of Hillsdale.

A reporter who accompanied Van Horn to the scene said the circle was about seven feet in diameter, with a deep indentation of one to two inches around the circumference.

Black granules resembling charcoal were found nearby, but the particles did not blacken the fingers when rubbed. Mr. Van Horn sent samples from the circular area to the Michigan state police crime laboratory in Lansing for analysis.

In Washington, the National Investigations Committee of Aerial Phenomena called on the U.S. government to release all information it has on unidentified flying objects.


Maj. Donald Keyhoe, retired from the U.S. Marine Corps and director of the group told a press conference:

"There is substantial evidence we are being observed by some sort of device which is far more advanced than anything we have and is controlled by a superior civilization."
