“This is Friendship Seven.

“I’ll try to describe what I’m in here.

“I am in a big mass of some very small particles, that are brilliantly lit up like they’re luminescent.

“I never saw anything like it. They round a little; they’re coming by the capsule, and they look like little stars.

“A whole shower of them coming by. They swirl around the capsule and go in front of the window and they’re all brilliantly lighted.

“They probably average maybe seven or eight feet apart, but I can see them all down below me, also.”
