Location: Canon AFB, NM
|This is a report of an experience that myself and a fellow Air Traffic Controller saw at Cannon AFB in 1974. We were sitting Outside of our radar approach van across the runway, just looking at the night sky.
We were watching what we thought was a rapidly traversing Satellite when we observed it make a 90 degree turn and accelerate until it was no longer visible.
We told no one about this as Air Traffic Controllers that saw "UFO’s" were usually sent "away" to different assignments if they pursued any public disclosure.
They are out there. TWO of us saw it simultaneously.
