Archivist's Notes: There was no file with this card of a sighting of a white-orange round-conical shaped object which was determined to be definitely a star or planet with no explanation on how this conclusion was accomplished.

What this seems to be is a report that the person filing it wanted to squash, and chose any "explanation" handy as the one to do it.

There is no data to suggest that this was a cover up, and may have well been a case where the report was by someone considered unreliable. It could be a case where the investigation was deemed unprofitable because the witness was subsequently in some trouble legally, or a thousand mundane reasons, right down to, but not excluding, laziness on the part of those looking into the matter.

It is worth noting that a very similar report was filed almost exactly a year before from the same area.

I agree, this report is pretty haphazardly written. The object was described as white and orange in color, spherical then conical in shape. Surprisingly the apparent size is given as a "coffee cup at arm's length", which would have to be larger than a star or planet. The object was observed from the ground during a trip from Holloman AFB for 1 hour 44 minutes. It first appeared at the horizon and ascended to 45 degrees and disappeared as it got lighter, so this must have been seen just before dawn.
