6 January 1953
Monroe News-Star, ) Louisiana
The whole article:
“A bright, colorful object, ‘shaped like an arrow-head,’ was in sight over
two hours Tuesday [6 January 1953] and officials who observed it said it
‘definitely was not a star or a plane.’ Dallas
Police dispatcher Lewis Passons said he first began getting reports of the strange object about 1 [a.m.] cst.
‘People called in describing the thing as green, orange and red,’ Passons said. ‘They said it was arrow-shaped with a green nose and wings that gave off a white light and a whirring noise.’
[Passons] said he didn’t get ‘too concerned until several squad cars reported seeing the object.
‘Then we got in touch with the tower at Love Field and they said it was visible from there,’ Passons said. ‘Several boys climbed on top of City Hall and said they could see it plainly.’
W. B. Harris, Dallas Fire Department dispatcher, said he watched the object from the window of his office for about two hours.
‘I wish I’d never seen it,’ Harris said. ‘It’s too fantastic, and now there’ll be a lot of talk. I just wish I’d never seen it.’
Harris said that the object changed colors while he was watching it, ‘from and orange to a bright red.’
‘I know this much,’ Harris said, ‘It wasn’t a plane or a star.’
Wyle Moore, controller on duty at the Love Field tower, said when he first spotted the object he estimated its height at
‘I marked a spot on the glass here so I could keep up with it,’ he said, ‘and within 30 minutes I’d estimate it had gone up to
80,000 feet. In another
hour it had gotten up to 100,000
feet and then, of course, you could barely see it.’
‘I should know a plane or a star by now,’
said, ‘and this wasn’t either.’ Moore
Passons said that reports of the object came from as far away as
Paris, Tex., about 100 miles northeast of . He said he
understood a jet plane had been [sent] up from Hensley Naval Air Station to
chase the object. Dallas
However, the control tower at Hensley said that no aircraft had left the station since Monday afternoon and that no pilots aloft had reported sighting any strange objects.
Officers at Carswell Air Force Base at
said that no plane had been sent
out from there to trail the object.” Fort Worth
I first learned of this UFO case while reading David B. Marler’s brilliant book, Triangular UFOs: An Estimate of the Situation.
The police dispatcher received the first UFO reports at 3:00 a.m. CST, according to Marler.
