and a guard at the Wanaque Reservoir, agreed that it was "very
white, very bright and much bigger than a star." to some it
appeared as a "big white disk."

seeing the object. He drove to the reservoir after having been
alerted by local police.
The first report came to the local police radio station at
6:30 P.M. Tuesday. After receiving about 30 phone calls from
residents and motorists, the radio monitor called Wanaque Patrolman

Wayne and Butler claim there's a flying saucer over the Wanaque." there were
additional reports of the object last night.
