January 8, 1959; near Walworth, Wisconsin. Gordon Higgins, a draftsman who has had two years USAF experience as control tower operator and flight controller, watched a UFO descend and then speed away horizontally.

Refer to the diagram with number keys.

While traveling east at 5:15 p.m. the object was sighted at position No. 1. As it started to descend slowly the automobile was brought to a stop to get a better view. It took approximately 15 seconds for the object to reach position No. 2. It still glowed a bright white as in position No. 1. Then it shot off at tremendous speed leaving a trail of sparks, changing from the original brilliant white, to orange, and seemed to either go out of sight, disappear, or disintegrate.
