Go Back Report # 899

[Letter to NICAP –CF-]

Major Donald E. Keyhoe

1536 Connecticut Avenue, N.W.

Washington D.C.     

Dear Major Keyhoe:  

       Quite by accident, while thumbing through Frank Edwards’

Strangest of All, I ran across the aurthor's (sic) note in which

one can become a member in the NICAP. Will you please tell

me, is the invitation still open?

       For the five dollars one invests, what does one reveive (sic)

in return?   How regular are the regular bulletins, and how

confidential are the confidential letters?   Now I would like

to tell you of my own little U.F.O. experience I had. 

       This last summer while on vacation in Westerly, Rhode

Island, early one evening about July 20, a friend and I

happened to see a very bright red light approximately 2½  mi.

offshore, not blinking, just a steady source of red light.

At first it came straight down from approx. 1800 ft., where

it was first sighted, to the water line, traveling at a fantastic

speed and no noise whatsoever.   Then for about 3 min.

it rose and sank in the air, high point about 300 ft. and low

point at or just above sea lever (sic – level).  At first I thought it might

be an airplane or a helocopter (sic), but then I dismissed the thought

because it possessed no sound, because of the menuvers (sic) it performed,

and because of its speed.   Then abruptly it sank

beneith (sic) the waves.  

       Here you have my own sighting of a U.F.O.  It was a

helocopter (sic) most likely, but I like to entertain the thought

of it being a U.F.O.

       Could you give me some names of people in my area who

have sighted suspected U.F.O.'s that I could write to?

                                  Sincerely yours,

                                  Witness’s Name
