Ahh,the problem of the "embarrassment of riches."  Well, anyway,
let me add a couple without getting "too" controversial (no
McMinnville, No New Zealand, No Japan Airlines, No Kenneth
Arnold, etc.)

May 24, 1949 - Rogue River, Oregon, multiple witness, reported
to security office at Ames Research Lab (and apparently nowhere
else!), flat disc or  pancake shaped object with a "fin"; part
of surface looked "wrinkled and dirty" , observed for couple
minutes through binoculars by 5 people, 20 of which worked at
Ames, approached, hovered, turned on axis, accelerated to speed
of jet and departed...was probably within 1 mile of witnesses,
but no noise heard.  (This is Blue Book Special Report #14 case

May 24, 1950 (note odd "coincidence, 1 year after previous) at
White Sands, TRIANGULATION ACCOMPLISHED....with cinetheodolites,
objects flew over and were determined to be at altitude 150,000
ft, diameter about 30 ft, undetermined but high speed (this
observation was mentioned in the Project Twinkle Final Report,
but the Final report says nothing about the SUCCESS of filming
unknown objects and the report ignores the triangulation., Cover

And then there are the other balloon observer sightings of the
early days (Kalisewski, et al) who complement the April 24, 1949
sighting by CHARLES MOORE (he of MOGUL fame, folks; his sighitng
was called "the best" by Dr. Donald Menzel in his first
debunking book FLYING SAUCERS) which is in Cashman's list.
