UFO Journal Issue:
“U.F.O. Investigator”

Vol. II, No. 11, July-August 1964
(National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena,
Washington, D.C.) 


The issue contains the articles, “World-Wide Impact – UFO EVIDENCE TO CONGRESS,” “Wave of Close-Range Sightings Reported,” “Outline: The UFO Evidence,” “Physical Evidence – LANDING REPORTS,” “Other Recent Sightings” and “Review Comments”:

Quote from the article, ‘Wave of Close-Range Sightings Reported’: 
“A rotating UFO, emitting a hissing sound, hovered ‘like a humming-bird’ over the car of a South Carolina businessman June 29. This was the second car-pacing incident in a week along the Atlantic seaboard, the scene of the most recent UFO activity. 

The sighting wave which began late in April, the largest since November 1957, has continued steadily ever since. It has included an unprecedented number of landing, near-landing and close approach cases.

The first case to be widely publicized was the report of an egg-shaped UFO observed on the ground near Socorro, N.M., April 24 by Officer Lonnie Zamora (see separate story). For about a week the reports were carried on the newswires and made front page headlines in many cities. National TV networks reported some of the landing cases, showing films of the sites. Then the news faded off the newswires and front pages. But the reports continued.

The most commonly reported shapes have been oval and disc. Sound has been heard in an unusual number of cases, and body lights have been visible in nighttime sightings.”
