1.                                The following report of an unidentified
flying object was brought to the attention of the Commanding
Officer of RCAF Stn Summerside by the Summerside Detachment of
the R.C.M.P. and confirmed by the Summerside reporter for the
Charlottetown Guardian.
 
2.                                 Brenton Clark, a farmer in the vicinity
of Augustive Cove, saw an object at approximately 10,000 ft
east of his position moving southward at a high speed.  The time
was approximately 17:45 hrs AST 5 Jul 47.  It maintained level
flight for some distance and then apparently dived earthward
leaving a trail (apparently a vapor trail) behind it.  After
the object had disappeared the trail remained for some time.
The object was visible for an estimated 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.
The object was round shaped and at the estimated distance
appeared to be the "size of an apple".  It appeared to resemble
a shooting star and there was a considerable reflection of light.
 
3.                                  The above report was confirmed by a
local reporter who advised that he was informed by James Harris,
a farmer in the vicinity of Summerside PEI, that he (Harris)
and his hired man, Herman Linkletter, had seen an object in the
same general position at the same time.  It was moving southwestward
and there was such a brilliant refelection from it that its shape
was indiscernible.  It was visible for approximately ten seconds.
