Daytime 'Star' is Seen at Newcomb

Miss B. A. Tillery of Newcomb Trading post on the Navajo reservation north of here, has joined the ranks of those claiming to have seen unexplained glowing objects in the sky.

In a letter to the Gallup Independent Miss Tillery writes:

"My mother and I feel reasonably sure that is what we saw at 6:30 or 7:00 o'clock Wedeneday evening, June 25.

"When we first saw the shining disc, I said "What! a star in borad daylight?" However we soon decided against this because aside from being improbable, it was too large for that. In a short time it had disappeared into the southeastern sky, leaving us baffled until we began hearing these reports."

Earlier, Art Roberts, Gallup barber, reported seeing one sweep in from the northeast about 10:30 p.m. Friday and disappear quickly over the southern horizon.
