On April 24, 1964, an American Police officer named Lonnie Zamora spotted a strange object streak through the sky over a highway outside of Socorro, New Mexico. The object was between a half a mile to a mile away, shooting off towards the southwest. It left a trail of bluish orange flames, and made a roaring noise as it passed overhead. Curious as to what it was, officer Zamora followed the object over a steep hill, catching up with it as it lay rested on the summit. What Zamora saw then has never been adequately explained.
