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 #10) 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 up?) 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.
