Poor quality as document but still valuable considering the specifics of the sighting. According to the witness, Mr Don R. Wiens which as the OP
stated is a trained observer stationed at Los Alamos Airport as tower operator, on July 22 1952 at approximately 10.50 to 11.15 o'clock he noticed 8
objects round or elliptical in shape, aluminum or some sort of other metallic material, very bright and luminous. The distance of the objects might
have been between 15 to 50 miles from the observer's position and their size fairly bigger then any known aircraft. The objects didn't keep a steady
route but seamed to darted in different directions which made it very difficult to follow their flight path. Here and there the objects remained
motionless then taking off with a very high rate of speed. The whole sighting lasted 25 minutes.
By the Air Force the objects have been classified as balloons.
Personally I have no knowledge about balloons that big, flying that fast, remaining motionless and taking of immediately with a high rate of speed.
part of this sightings there were also other witnesses, pilot J. Chin, F. Dew also pilot and R. W. Rowland from the fire department. The two pilots
are considered trained observers and add up to the credibility of testimony of Mr. Wiens
