Excuse me for butting in re. a case of which I know little, but
this appears to be incorrect if the scan of a typed statement by
Penniston is to be believed. This statement appears not to be
dated, and it isn't signed either, so I suppose its provenance
may be in question? However I don't believe I am confused about
this: It does indeed say that he got to within 50 meters and
that this was "the closest I was near the object at any point".
