LUMINOUS DISC SEEN FLYING IN STATE SKY

Silver City, June 27 (AP) -- Dr. R. F. Sensenbaugher, dentist, Mrs Sensenbaugher, and her sister, Mrs C. B. Munroe, were riding along the Tyrone road last Wednesdy about 8 p.m. when they reported a luminous disc sailed out of northern sky and disappeared in a few seconds over the southern horizon.

Dr Sensenhaugher said the disc appeared to be about half the size of a full moon, very brilliant, far distant, and apparently not moving at excessive speed.

They could not connect the appearance with any natural phenomenon they had experienced and their curiosity was further whetted when they read about such bright objects being seen in the sky of Washington and Oklahoma.
