Archivist's Notes: This is the investigation report from a sighting by multiple witnesses, of an object on October 2nd, 1951 at 2100 local time in White Sands, New Mexico. The object was described as being ten foot long, slender, and shaped like a rocket with a halo on its underside. Its color was that of a “sulfa match when rubbed”. The object appeared to travel from the Northeast turning to due north , and disappearing 15 seconds later. The report includes a 10073 record card, and additional witness testimony as recorded by investigators. The condition of the document is fair.

The OA covered most of the basics.

The following are a few things that stood out to me.

- Object appeared to lengthen and then shorten.

- One observer stated that the object ascended at a 15 degree angle with the other saying a 30 degree angle.

-One observer believes the object changed trajectory while the other noticed no change.

-Estimated that object was travelling at 5 times the speed of any rocket that had been fired at WSPG.

-Manner of disappearance recorded as "Vanished".

-Officially recorded as a meteor sighting.

page 1 records the white sands, new mexico sighting, dated 2nd oct 1951, of an amber coloured object by military personnel. speed estimated at 5 times that of a rocket and there was a halo surrounding the object. 2 contradictory reports of direction and angle by the witnesses. ticked box for 'was astronomical'. conclusion is typed 'meteor' next to this.

page 2 is a letter from col george a a jones to the commanding general of air material command naming 5 witnesses to the event.

pages 3 to 6 are the questionnaire. funnily, the witnesses were sitting on the steps of a building and were joking with some other men who had previously reported a strange light, when the object appeared.

it does seem a bit odd that supposedly trained military personnel cannot agree on it's direction or whether it remained in a straight line or changed course.
