The witness was at home in Philadelphia on June 25, 1965, when the incident occurred. This report is best told completely in the witnesses’ own words.
“At the time I was 11 years old,” the witness stated. “I am a retired Air Force Intelligence Officer (Major), and veteran of the Gulf War. I was sitting looking out a window when I saw a large bright object descending at a fast rate of speed. It was coming down at a 45 percent angle at perhaps 50 mph. I thought it was a rocket because of its shape – a cylinder with rounded ends.
