Archivist's Notes: This file is in good condition with all pages legible. Ground witnesses observed a fireball type object which lasted 4-6 seconds. The sighting in the air was more of an observation of a flash of light refelected in the cockpit of the plane.

After reading this document I was wondering why this was ever considered classified.
It was a meteor - pure and simple.
I wish there were more to it but there just isn't.
(heavy sigh)

This document is another report of a fireball, which was seen by two pilots on February 25, 1950. The object was described as brilliant white traveling between 1,000 to 2,000 mph, and lasted for 2 to 4 seconds. It traveled in a straight line and left a red trail behind.

This is another report that must have been part of the investigation of the Green Fireballs, led by Dr. Lincoln LaPaz, that were seen in the New Mexico area.
