Los Alamos 03MAY49 sighting record
Sighting of one white and one red light in the skies above Los Alamos with reports from 3 guard stations incident #365

Document date: 1949-05-03
Department: Unknown
Author: Unknown
Document type: record
pages: 13


Archivist's Notes: Very poor quality file, it is difficult to extract the information, the lights were described as being like landing lights of an aircraft. Assuming three reports of same sightings as record shows #365, #365A, #365B, record also refers to incident #358, report names Inspectors Wilson, Olbert, Cooney? or Gooney? as observers.

While no real information can be gotten from the documents in this condition, one can gather that a very fast moving object was seen, and then the same or another object, which hovered.

Speeds of 1000mph are mentioned, along with the hovering. In 1949 such things would have been unlikely, as no aircraft were attaining those speeds then, and the only thing that could hover was a balloon, which does not seem to be the object described.
