U.S. Government UFO Document:
“PROJECT 10073 RECORD (CARD):
DATE – TIME GROUP: 9 Feb. 68/
LOCATION: Groveton, Missouri”
Blue Book, U.S. Air Force, ) Washington, D.C.
Quote from the document:
“The observer was awakened by several of his cows bawling. The observer rushed to his living room and sighted a craft that was estimated to be about
in diameter and had concave sides. A bright yellow-green light came from the
concave sides of the craft and the craft itself produced a pulsating sound
similar to a piece of wire whirled at high speed above a person’s head. During
this time the cows were staring at the object which the observer estimated to
be about 100 to 200 ft
away and about 25 ft.
above the ground. Finally the cows whirled and ran into the barn. Shortly
afterward the craft moved away rapidly toward the SW. When the object moved
toward the SW the noise was reportedly two or three times louder and the sound
pulsations were more rapid. The duration of the sighting was 1 to 5 minutes.
NOTE: The observer is somewhat nearsighted but was not wearing his glasses
during the observation.”
Project Blue Book listed the case as “UNIDENTIFIED.”
The UFO incident occurred at 4:20 a.m. (9:20 a.m. Zulu Time Zone).

Quote from the UFO report:
“This is a twelve-page chronology of UFO incidents and events for 1968. Our thanks for these chronologies must go to our documentation team: Richard Hall (the original 1968 chronology from UFOE II), William Wise (Project Blue Book Archive), Dan Wilson (archive researcher), and Brad Sparks (Comprehensive Catalog of Project Blue Book Unknowns). Last, but not least, our thanks to Jean Waskiewicz who created the online NICAP DBase (NSID) that helped make it possible to link from the cases to the reports themselves.
Earlier last year, on September 18, 1967, Condon, Low and Saunders had met for the first time in many weeks. As a result of his reading of the memo, Saunders was deeply concerned about the negative approach to the UFO problem. Saunders was led to believe that if by chance the Extra Terrestrial Intelligence (ETI) hypothesis was substantiated, the announcement would be sent by Condon directly to the Air Force and the President, and never be allowed to go to the public. This troubled him, because Saunders had been given a clear understanding that the report would go first to the National Academy of Sciences, then to the public and Air Force simultaneously. Saunders felt he could not let the problem drop. Another meeting was agreed to. At this point, Keyhoe suddenly sent word that NICAP was going to take a strong stand against the Condon committee and no longer would supply material and reports. The reason, Keyhoe said, was a new speech made by Condon at the Atomic Spectroscopy Symposium at
, on September 13, Gaithersburg,
Md. 1967. A report of the new
Condon speech had already reached Dr. McDonald in a letter from a colleague at
the , William S.
Bickel, assistant professor of physics on the campus. The rest was all down
hill, but the Condon Report later tried to say they couldn’t get cooperation,
as excerpts inserted in the chronology will demonstrate. University of
As the Colorado UFO Project prepares to announce the failure to find anything of substance to UFOs and the need to close the Air Force Project Blue Book, other studies, such as the secret NSA document below, and later the RAND document (Nov. 27), give a more accurate report.
