SEOUL - (AP) - Those "flying saucers" have popped up in Korea and Japan.   

A Canadian destroyer recently reported sighting two such objects and recorded them on its radar, it was learned here today. 

A navy report said 40 officers and crew members of the destroyer Crusader saw the "saucers" the night of July 10. All had the familiar qualities of the puzzling flying discs.  

The report, addressed to the commanders of the Far East naval forces and the fifth Air Force, said the ship's radar registered "fixes" on the objects. It placed them two miles high and seven miles away. The report said the objects disappeared before dawn.      

A second report, a day or two later, dismissed the radar find as the planet Jupiter. One officer commented, however: "Jupiter doesn't come in pairs and it is several million miles out of range of our radar."
