De 11-jarige Anno Erenstein, Deliplein 10, en de 13-jarige Jan Nieboer, Deliplein 13a, zagen gisteravond tegen half zes, toen zij bezig waren een spelletje te doen met buurkinderen, plotseling een vreemd verschijnsel in de lucht, „vlak naast de maan", naar zij zelf verklaarden. Het verschijnsel had de vorm van een halve bol en was donkerrood van kleur. Het verdween na enkele seconden met een vreemd, sissend geluid.
