Good Lord! They need better scanners at the NSA/DIA/CIA. Note, white space added for readability:
At 2200 Z AUG[?] 15 observed [sic] bright white light appearing at bearing 026 (true north) elevation approximately [sic] 15 degrees.
Position [sic] of Muller [funnier if it had been Mulder] 23.17N 82.19W.
During the first minute [sic] of observation the light was pulsating or fluctuating in brightness at approximately [sic] one second intervals.
For the next two minutes of observation the light began pulsating concentric rings of light which flowed from the central source in a rippling
shimmering fashion diminishing in brightness as they grew [?] further and further away from the originating source.
During the fourth minute [sic] of observation a bluish-green beam of light appeared from the central core of the configuration, extending outboard and
downward to the left at an angle of approach [sic] 45 degrees, and reaching to the fade out point of the radiating rings of light.
Approximately [sic] five minutes [sic] after the appearance of the bluish-green beam (similar in appearance to a searchlight beam), the radiating
circles of light disappeared leaving only the original [unintelligible] core of light and t[unintelligible]ored beam.
Following the disappearance of the circles, the beam seemed to retract towards the central core, growing broader and stouter as it retracted.
Finally, the beam and core seemed to form in a nebulous cloud-shaped mass, which drifted south on the wind, fading from view after approximately [sic]
14 minutes [sic].
During this event, the following atmospheric data was accumulated:
Temperature - 83 degrees dry / 78 degrees wet
four tenths cloud cover (stratus and cumulus)
Wind EX N.S. At 12 KTS [knots]
Electrical storm forming over immediate area of city of Hava [?]
