Synopsis: In 1953, the exact day or month unknown, the witness of this investigation saw a large silver flying disk while living in Rhodesia, Africa. The witness admitted the event occurred over 60 years ago but could still remember the event vividly.
Evidence Submitted: A sketch of the UFO.
Initial Action: This UFO investigation was opened as an FB1, a fly-by of a UFO that traveled in a straight line across the sky.
Investigation and Findings: The investigators interviewed the witness of this investigation, who was deemed credible. The witness, moreover, is a lawyer and author of many novels. According to the witness, while outside the local Post Office in Salisbury, a silver disk-shaped UFO was seen hovering over the city. The UFO hovered for about five minutes and then “shot straight up into the air” until it was no longer in sight. The investigators contacted the local newspaper The Herald in Zimbabwe in hopes of retrieving archived reports to corroborate the witness’ testimony. However, the newspaper editor could not provide any information because the civil war resulted in the destruction of the newspaper’s archives. Because the sighting took place nearly 55 years ago at a remote country, the investigators could not find a sufficient amount of relevant information to identify the object. The investigation, therefore, was closed as unresolved/unidentified.
Object Details: Unidentified
