“SEATTLE (AP) — The second instance of observation of
unidentified objects at high altitude was reported Thursday by
X-15 pilot Joe Walker.
Walkertold a scientific conference that films taken during his recent flight to a record height of 246,700 feet showed the presence of five or six objects of undetermined size at some distance from the plane.
The film was taken by a camera mounted on the X-15’s fuselage.
The mysterious objects, apparently disk-shaped, showed up on the film as the X-15 arced over the top of its flight and headed back toward earth.

‘I don’t feel like speculating about the nature of these objects,’ Walkersaid. ‘All I know is what appeared on the film in later study. I saw nothing myself during the flight of this nature.’

Walkermentioned the objects only briefly in a panel discussion at the second annual conference on the peaceful uses of space.”
