UFO sighting at Telescope no.3 at White Sands
Briefly, while at Telescope No. 3 at White Sands, he observed an object of -6 magnitude (four times brighter than the planet Venus at its brightest) travelling from the zenith to the southern horizon in about three seconds. The object executed the same manuevers as the nighttime luminous object which was reported in Life magazine. No sound was associated with either of the sightungs. Mr. Tombaugh is in charge of optics design and rocket tracking at White Sands Proving Ground.
