- 2 Civilians observe multicolored lights for 30 minutes

- This also has been observed by Naval Air personnel on radar screen hovering with a speed of 3knots – UFO changed direction and interfered with radar (computer equipment) unable to track further.

-Naval Air Station reported that no known aircraft was in the airspace

-Total of 8 Naval personal observed visually the incident however the Naval report claims that the personal was influenced by the 2 civilians

-Naval reporting system was delayed, story appeared first in Newspaper.

Notes to research:

- Story never went to the Head Quarter until about a year later (1 August 1997) – The original reporting letter was apparently lost.

-Story appeared first in the newspaper 16th May 1978 with important comments from the Naval Air Base but this has not investigated when UFO appeared (PA officer N.P. Young claimed that incident was not been reported before it appeared in the newsletter)

Note to original post “Information Account”:

•The document dated ‘1979-08-01’ refers only to 1 document (2pages).
•The incident occurred on the 14th May 1978
•The Newspaper reported this incident on the 16th May 1978
•Initial NAS Jacksonville report shows the numbers 0 171824Z May 78 and ADS-17 June 1978 ( very confusing)
•Handwritten notes dated the 14th May 1978 (unable to read notes)

I would suggest the date in the “Information Account” should include the date of the incident because this is a 11 page document collection with various dates.

Edit to Description:

• The multicolored lights where seen hovering above the trees
• Colored light where red, green and white

This event has been posted on several UFO sites.
The following is from

The incident began with phone calls from two civilian. At about 10:05 p.m., a woman, called from nearby Silver Glen Springs to ask if the installation was shooting off flares. She had just seen mysterious lights and wanted to know if they are flare. The duty officer, SK-1 Robert Clark, assured her no such operation was going on at that moment. A second call came a few minutes later. A man, later identified as Rocky Morgan, said that he and seven other persons traveling on Highway 19 near Silver Glen Springs had just seen an oblong-shaped flying object, some 50 to 60 feet in diameter and "almost the color of the moon," pass over the top of his car. It had a flashing light which was intensely bright at its center.

Despite this has been published on the net, there is lots of information on the "confidential" report from the NAS Jacksonville to follow up....
