Pfc. William B. Gault was at the Sandia Base MP Hqtrs when a call came in from a lady reporting a disc. Apparently when going to look, he was in front
of the Officer's Club when he spotted a "square" bright object the size of a softball (held at arms length?) in the sky to the Northeast of his
position. It was standing still when he first saw it, but then left, moving Northward at an estimated speed of 700 MPH. He described it's flight as
A second MP was present and had the object pointed out to him, (by Pfc. Gault?) and described it in much the same terms, though less detail. He seems
to have just glanced at it.
At almost the same time, yet another MP who had been alerted by his radio, saw an object to the east of the base. Cpl. William Schmidt was in front of
the Base Officers Quarters when he saw an object the size of the moon.It was round, silver colored, and six to eight miles away. This UFO was
traveling south at 100MPH. (The report notes that Cpl Schmidt is reliable and is "Q" cleared.)
Some thirty minutes later Pvt. Henry D. McMinn, Jr. glances up while near main and "D" streets, and sees four silver objects that are Aluminum
looking and brightly reflect sunlight. He describes them as "spinning and turning" traveling "level" at about 7,000 feet and then going straight
up and out of sight "faster than any jet".
It would seem that was an exciting fall day in New Mexico.
