Fresno, Hawaii See UFOs

       Brilliant objects flashing through the sky had flying object watchers from the San Joaquin Valley to Hawaii in a tizzy yesterday.

       Fresno residents began clogging police switchboards at 1:13 a.m. with reports of a red, white, and blue flashing body traveling slowly to the north over northeast Fresno.

       A forecaster for the U.S. Weather Bureau said a thick layer of haze probably had caused the light from a brilliant star to flash and change colors.

       Then, shortly before 6 a.m., a trail of smoke appeared in the sky west of Fresno. Vandenberg Air Force Base officials scotched that rumor of a UFO by identifying the smoke as the contrail from an intercontinental ballistic missile booster launched in a test at 5:50 a.m.

       Islanders on Kauai in the Hawaiian chain were treated to visions of an object "falling like a rock" last Tuesday night.

       United Air Lines pilot L. L. Jones described it as a yellow-green, "overgrown falling star” which appeared to disintegrate just before striking the water.

       "Officially we don't know what it was," said the duty officer at the Navy's Pacific [text missing].
