Archivist's Notes: Difficult to read in some places.
This report describes a brilliant orange spheroid object which was visible for 5 seconds, leaving a trail of white smoke which which was in turn visible for 15 minutes.
The object was observed by a member of the military and the report's conclusion is that it was a meteor.

Even though the description of the object as being orange in color, this document is another report of the Green Fireballs sightings in the area of New Mexico in the late Forties. Green fireballs were being seen in New Mexico and many suggested they could have been Russian spy satellites or they could be of extraterrestrial origin.

page 1 is the standard report form. orange spheroid sighted in gallup, new mexico on 5th june 1949 for 5 seconds which left a trail of white smoke behind it which stayed for 15 minutes.

the following pages are either not or just barely legible. there are a few more questionnaire pages included (possibly for more than one witness). there appears to be a listing of several other guides or investigations with some names just legible. can't make out why they are being referenced though.

page 10 names presumably the witness - capt john w stewart who was a post engineer officer and appears to have been an 'excellent character'.

there seems to be a lot more pages than the standard meteor report sightings i have comes across so far which usually number 4-5 pages. unfortunately as most of the pages are not legible so we won't know if there was anything more interesting here than just someone who just liked to fill in paperwork!
