UFO Report:
“The 1965 UFO Chronology”

Created: 12 July 2006
Updated: 20 March 2017

Quote from the UFO report (the introduction):
“This year encompasses more recognized incidents in one group than any other year I am aware of, other than 1952. To name a few: The  May 6 Philippine Sea radar case, the July 3  E-M case at Antarctica, the Aug. 3 Santa Ana/Rex Heflin photo incident, the Aug. 2 (or 3rd) Tulsa, OK/Alan Smith photo, the Aug. 19 Cherry Creek, NY, trace case, the Sept. 2/3 Exeter, NH close encounter, and the famous Edwards AFB encounter of Oct. 7. All this followed by the Northeast Power Grid Failure of November 9th. Our thanks for these chronologies must go to our documentation team: Richard Hall (the original chronology from UFOE II), Rebecca Wise (Project Blue Book Archive), Dan Wilson (archive researcher), Brad Sparks (Comprehensive Catalog of Project Blue Book Unknowns), and Jean Waskiewicz (online NICAP DBase). This chrono also documents the 1965 flap near Virginia.

The whole UFO case report:
Brad Sparks:
Jan. 23, 1965; Lightfoot, N of Williamsburg, Virginia (BBU 9242)
8:40 a.m. Cars stalled near intersection of US Hwy 60 and State Route 614, witness T. F. Mains saw light-bulb or mushroom-shaped object 75-80 ft tall, 10-25 ft wide, metallic gray, red-orange and blue glows, hovering over nearby field about 4 ft off the ground, making a vacuum cleaner-type noise, suddenly accelerate horizontally to the W against the wind and disappear. (25-seconds, 2 witnesses). (UFOE II, Section VIII; Berliner; cf. Hynek UFO Rpt pp. 177-8; Vallée Magonia 633)

Fran Ridge:
Interesting that this incident was listed in the Blue Book files as Unidentified. Investigation shows duration of 25 seconds with two witnesses in separate cars, both stalled. (See BB docs below). The latest update is from Mike Swords and a letter to Richard Hall from a witness.

Martin Shough:
This is an extremely interesting case and, as far as one can tell from the file, it feels pretty solid. Ignoring the car stallings (which is not so easily done, given two vehicles) about the only thing that seems half-way plausible is a hot-air balloon (shape, lift-off, near horizontal motion, colour, light, noise like a vaccuum cleaner). But the departure direction is west, which would be into the wind (about WSW according to the file). Very curious! What a shame we don’t have the police report from the second witness.” presents U.S. government (U.S. Air Force) documents that pertain to the UFO case.
