“Flying Saucer Review Volume 6:
The Phenomenon”

By Dr. Michael D. Swords, 16 April 2010
(The Big Study)

The article contains a report on the 13/14 August 1960 Red Bluff, California, UFO incident:

The incident was witnessed by two California Highway Patrol officers and several other police officers and citizens.

The oval shaped UFO was first sighted descending towards the witnesses before abruptly stopping.

Quote from the article:
“It shot back up 600 feet and hovered. It was glowing and looked like a 150 foot long football. It occasionally put on shows of non-inertial motions with very erratic changes of direction and speed. It seemed to be metallic under the glow and had big light beams at each end. It seemed to be playing cat-and-mouse with the police as when they approached, it moved away, but when they stopped it approached. At greater distances, many other policemen and citizens witnessed the thing. There was a confirmed-then-denied mention of radar tracking. The patrolmen had fairly constant static on their radios.”
