For me, one of the most important aspects of a UFO encounter is the

series of startling UFO incidents which occurred at the Atomic Energy
Commission facility in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, from the latter part of
1950 to early 1951. The cases are documented in the now-declassified UFO files of the FBI and make for notable reading.
An FBI teletype of October 13, 1950 refers to the detection of a definitive squadron of unknown objects tracked over the Oak Ridge installation

installation at Knoxville…picked up indications of eleven objects and
perhaps more traveling across controlled area of Atomic Energy
installation at Oak Ridge.” The report continued: “Altitude of objects

one hundred twenty-five miles per hour…”
