A shiny mysterious object is spotted while the US Air Force is investigating the flow of messages

Washington, November 5. (AP) - A shiny mysterious object was spotted in the southern sky today by a Coast Guard boat, despite the fact that the Air Force investigated many previous reports.

The Coast Guard cutter Sebago, cruising in the Gulf of Mexico about 200 miles south of Louisiana, reported on the radio that an object resembling a "brilliant planet with high speed" was seen for about three seconds at 5: 21 am central time.

The Coast Guard headquarters in New Orleans said that the message does not indicate who exactly on board the boat saw the object.

The Sebago message said that the object was tracked on the ship's radar screen for 27 minutes, and that during this time the object flashed several times from the screen and from the screen.

Since Sunday, sightings of strange objects have been reported from widely scattered parts of the United States, mainly near secret military facilities in the southwest.

The Air Force said that the radar network of the Air Defense Command is conducting surveillance - so far to no avail - and that specially qualified investigators have been appointed to study the reports.

Some citizens, peacekeepers and military personnel who reported seeing mysterious objects in the southwest since the weekend said that these objects stalled car engines and caused the radio receivers to turn off.

James Stokes, an engineer at the Air Force Missile Development Center in Alamogordo, New Mexico, said that 10 cars stopped on the highway in the desert between Alamogordo and the White Sands test site, New Mexico, yesterday.

He reported that he saw a silent "egg-shaped object of bright color" that fluttered randomly through the countryside and left behind a kind of heat wave, "like the radiation of a giant solar lamp."

Quebec, Nov 5 (AP) - Duck hunters from nearby Lauzon today reported seeing a red spherical object falling from the sky on Saturday.

They said it looked like it had fallen into the St. Lawrence River near Quebec Harbor.

The observations were similar to those of Jacques Hebert, a physics professor at the University of Ottawa, who reported seeing a rocket-shaped object falling near Quebec over the weekend.

Strange Sights in the Sky
Brilliant Mystery Object Sighted as U.S. Air Force Investigates Flurry of Reports

Washington, Nov. 5 (AP) - A brilliant mystery object was reported sighted today in southern skies by a Coast Guard cutter, even as the air force investigated a flurry of earlier reports.

The Coast Guard cutter Sebago, cruising in the Gulf of Mexico about 200 miles south of Louisiana, radioed that an object resembling "a brilliant planet with a high rate of speed" was seen for about three seconds at 5:21 a.m., CST.

Coast Guard headquarters in New Orleans said the message did not report exactly who on board the cutter had seen the object.

The Sebago's message said the object was tracked on the vessel's radar screen for 27 minutes and that, during that period, the object flitted on and off the screen several times.

Sightings of strange objects have been reported from widely scattered sections of the United States since Sunday, most of them near secret military installations in the southwest.

The air force said the radar network of the Air Defense Command is keeping watch - so far with no results - and that specially qualified investigators have been assigned to look into the reports.

Some of the citizens, peace officers and servicemen who reported sighting mystery objects in the southwest since the weekend said the objects stalled auto engines and caused radios to fade.

James Stokes, an engineer at the air force missile development centre at Alamogordo, N.M., reported 10 autos were stalled, yesterday on a desert highway between Alamogordo and the White Sands, N.M., proving grounds.

He reported seeing a soundless, "brilliant colored egg-shaped object" which flitted erratically across the countryside and left a sort of heat wave, "like radiation from a giant sun lamp," in its wake.
