Fiery Object

Ernest Kelley, of Knapps Creek, was watching the Walter Cronkite 6:30 news program last Tuesday night and was startled by a light outside. An object shaped like a light bulb or pear, looking as big as a three-gallon bucket, brightly lighted the fields and barn as it fell to earth. It looked like it came down in a nearby field but so far he hasn’t found it.

Mr. and Mrs. Dorsey Moses, driving to their home on Hamilton Hill in Marlinton, saw the falling object, and from here it looked the size of a quart can.
