Three observers said blue rays emitted from the object, and two witnesses said it had tinges of red or pink around its edges.

Two Oelwein policemen, Asst. Chief Jack Stolfus and Patrolman Charles Derringer said they watched the object for about 20 minutes.

All observers reported the object was traveling northeast. The sky at that time was cloudy and no stars were visible.

Officials at the Waverly, Ia., Air Force Base were unable to say if anything was spotted on their radar.”
