According to the daily newspapers "Al-Qabas", and "Al-Watan", the landing of the UFO, having from far the aspect of a dazzling mass of light, near a satellites' listening station located at approximately 50 km in the east of the capital, took place under the eyes of the employees of the station and the Kuwait oil company, nearby.

Arrived on the spot, four employees of the company, including an American citizen, managed to see at a distance of 250 meters, a discoidal object of the size of a "JumboJet", with a retractable front landing gear and surmounted of a kind of cupola at the top, from which a red light shone, the whole bathed of powerful lights, the Press writes.
