Cigar-shaped UFO with portholes seen by Honeywell metallurgist

Date: November 22, 1961
Location: Near Grafton, Nebraska, United States

A Minneapolis Honeywell metallurgist, Melvin C. Vagle, Jr., and his wife saw a cigar-shaped UFO while driving along U.S. Highway 81. "At the lower end. . . there was a bright 'flashing white light ann at the upper end there was a steady red light. Along the length of the fuselage there was a row of square-appearing ports, illuminated with a white yellowish light."

Hovering Cigar-Shaped Object

A Minneapolis Honeywell metallurgist, Melvin C. Vagle, Jr., saw a cigar-shaped UFO on November 22, 1961. NICAP later learned of the sighting through the Honeywell newspaper and obtained a first-hand report from Mr. Vagle, as well as a detailed painting of the UFO done under his supervision. [See sketch.]

It was a clear starlit night about 7:00 p.m. (CST). Mr. and Mrs. Vagle were traveling north on U S. Highway 81 approaching Grafton. A red light in the sky west of the highway up ahead attracted their attention, then other associated lights made them think it might be an aircraft. As they neared the site and pulled alongside, they saw "a cigar-shaped object hovering at a sharp angle over a plowed field. . .At the lower end. . . there was a bright 'flashing white light and at the upper end, there was a steady red light. Along the length of the fuselage, there was a row of square-appearing ports, illuminated with a white yellowish light."

The UFO seemed to be motionless until, when the Vagle's son started crying, they drove on. Then, the UFO appeared to drift westward across the highway. Earlier the same evening, a farmer in the Grafton area had seen a reddish cigar-shaped UFO west of Grafton and reported it to an area newspaper. Accompanying Mr.Vagle's report to NICAP was a letter from the farmer confirming the basic points of his sighting, which occurred at sunset. The farmer could not see any "ports", only a dull reddish glow from the UFO. The object vanished behind a dark cloud after about 10 minutes.
