Here is an interesting report in that the observation was made by a trained Special Agent from the Office of Special Investigations at Holloman Air
Force Base, New Mexico. This lends some credibility to the report not only because the individual was a trained investigator but also because these
professional government types tend to be much more structured and conservative in their assessments and reporting procedures.
This report is no exception; it’s a straight-laced, matter-of-fact accounting of an aerial phenomenon that occurred late in the evening of January
6, 1950 over Alamogordo, New Mexico. You can read through the report yourself, but here are some of the more intriguing highlights:
The reporting individual, Mr. Russell Womack, observed the event for a full 45 minutes and when he finally left, the object was still going through
its aerial aerobatics in the night sky. Further, Mr. Womack was a "Detachment Commander”, in a government leadership position, who reported the
observation corroborated by six other witnesses whom he identified.
When describing the object’s appearance, Mr. Womack referred to it as “predominately white-bright, comparable to Venus” and “...with a
star-like shape.” As we know, this typically elicits the familiar skeptics refrain that the observer was obviously merely watching a star or planet
and was confused by atmospheric perturbations that altered its appearance or made it seem to change in other ways. As we read further into the
report, however, we also learn that Mr. Womack described the movement of the object as, “…erratically up, down, to the right, and to the left”
as it moved on a general path “…from East to West.” Celestial objects admittedly will change color or appear to be flickering depending on
atmospheric conditions, but it can be argued that a trained investigator like Mr. Womack likely did not see a celestial object bouncing around in a
highly erratic pattern as it crossed the sky over a 45-minute period.
