20 March 1975
(Lodi News-Sentinel, California)
The police officers Harold D. Dodson and Patrick C. Green and two civilians, George W. Leech, 53, and his wife, Berthadelle, sighted a reddish orange UFO over Stockton, California, on the night of 18/19 March 1975.
The police officers and George W. Leech reported that the UFO was circular shaped.
Quote from the article:
“While Leech watched, the object ‘swung around and seemed to change into a circular shape (from a cylindrical shape).’ The whole time, Leech said, the object made a whirring sound, ‘like wind sounds way in the distance.’
At 2:37 a.m. officr Dodson called into the police department from his home. He reported a weird noise directly over his house at 500 to 700 feet. Dodson said the noise was three times as loud as a jet and made a ‘hollow sound that howled.’ Dodson told police that he was sure the sound was not a jet. Dodson said he rushed to a window but the source of the noise was gone by then.”
