UFO Report:
“1955 UFO Chronology
Creatures at Kelly”

Released: 15 December 2005
Updated: 14 January 2019

“This is a 10-page report on an on-going project involving a number of people. With the help of William Wise (Project Blue Book Archive), and Dan Wilson (digging out the cases from my checklist), the task becomes much easier. But without Brad Sparks’ updated list, the Comprehensive Catalog of Project Blue Book Unknowns, the entire project would have been impossible. And our thanks also go to Jean Waskiewicz who created the online NICAP DBase (NSID) that helped make it possible to link from the cases to the reports themselves.

For the record, we have four basic sources for reports. The first and foremost is the list of BB unknowns Brad provided. Next we have the NICAP site cases that we have selected throughout the years because of case value and interest. And then we have the old NICAP chronologies which have many cases pending details and documentation. The brief case descriptions of the latter group, giving the Cat (Category) number, name of some witness, and source in brackets (M=military), are noticeable NICAP UFO Evidence entries that haven’t yet been processed in and some of those may turn out to be unknowns. Lastly, beginning with this year (1955) I have added a feature that will be incorporated in the upcoming years and retroactive with the previous years, sighting lists by month. Months can be accessed here or within the chronology.

During the week of April 3-9, five green fireballs were reported in New Mexico and two in northern California. After a number of sightings reported about mid-morning April 5, LaPaz said: ‘This is a record. We believe we have it narrowed from the many reports to three. But they were seen within a very few minutes of each other.’

Dr. Lincoln Lapaz: ‘I’m sure the yellow-green fireballs aren’t ordinary meteorite falls. I’ve been observing the skies since 1914, and I’ve never seen any meteoric fireballs like them.’
