Dear Sir:

            Re: Sighting of Metereors or Fireballs

            Mr. ________________, an Airman with the United
States Air Force, contacted our Detachment at Teslin, Y.T.,
and reported sighting a meteor or fireball at Mile 737.5 on
the Northwest Highway System in the Yukon Territory while
travelling by automobile. He sighted this object at
11:23 P.M. Yukon Standard Time on 7 OCT 64 and states he
believes it fell to the ground approximately 300 yards
south of the highway. At the time of this sighting the
weather was clear. There was no occurrence of bursts,
however, the object was a very bright blue-white light
which cast shadows and he observed it for only one or two
seconds. He observed no trail and heard no sounds. No other
unusual observations were made.

             Although this sighting took place sometime ago,
We are forwarding the above information as it is felt the
Observations made by Mr. _______ would be of interest to

                                          Yours truly,

E, R. Lysyk, Insp.,
