Experience Iranian air traffic controller that fielded calls for civilians about a UFO over Tehran before witnessing the object himself.

Pirouzi was manning the air traffic control tower at the Mehrabad International Airport on September 18, 1976 and received multiple phone calls from civilians in Tehran, claiming to have seen a UFO. He was unable to confirm the object on radar, as the radar tower was out of order at the time, but he did visually witness an object, which he claimed was both color and shape changing. He deemed the sighting as significant and phoned the Iranian Air Force to inform them of the object.
