Cigar shaped object dropped pieces of heated metal. I acquired one of the pieces in 1962. Photograph to follow.

In approximately 1960, while the writer was in Puerto Rico, his friend, ((name deleted)), of Wenonah, New Jersey, was by his account near a New Jersey dump, where he saw a cagar shaped flying saucer, hovering in the air near the ground. A door opened in the saucer, hovering in the air near the ground. A door opened in the saucer and Joe, a railroad stationhouse worker, heard banging from inside the saucer, like a banging on radiator pipes, The some pieces of metal were thrown out of the saucer and landed in \ the sand. Whe the saucer flew away, Joe found the metal pieces were still hot. And, the piece he later gave to the writer has sand grain marks in it, and while the outside is generally smooth, the inside is crystalline, as if the outside had started to melt. Until the writer wrote this, eh did not realize the discreepancy between the outsdie and the inside appearance of the metal. The piece has a smoothly curved, machined or molded surface on one side. The piece which the writer has is now in safekeeping has a smooth, curved portion. It weighs about 2.75 ounces and had broken down three small pieces from it, as follows: 1. Dissolved in concentrated nitric acid. It did not dissolve, but turned, over a week, into a white powder. 2. Gave to Prof. ((deleted)) University. Dr.((deleted)) had a student analyze it, and it was found to be indium antimonide. (this was in 1970). They said it is spectroscopically pure antimony.
