This happened just over ten years ago while I was working in the Shumigen Islands in Alaska.
It was late December 1994, approx. 2:00 am, I was on the company dock waiting for a freightor of supplies to show up at around 3:00am. The weather
was warm @40 degrees F (warmth is relative, Dec. in Alaska), maybe a little warmer, no wind, high overcast, and a light misting rain, actually rather
As the night radiowatch, and general security guy, I usually worked alone. That was the case on this night as well.
I had just got off the radio with the freightor whose skipper had given me an ETA of just over an hour and a few minutes, so I was headed out side to
the dock to make sure everything was ready to recieve the freight as it was unloaded upon arrival. On the darkside of the plant I was checking the
cleats for tieing the ship up, making sure they weren't damaged or otherwise unusable. Everything was fine, so I headed for the dockshack to sit and
wait for the ship to arrive. On my way to the shack I looked off to the west toward Unga island, not expecting to see anything of interest at 2 am.
Imagine my surprise, when I saw a soft glow in the water about halfway between Unga Island, and Popof Island, right about where the main channel is.
As dark as it was I can't be sure of that since I didn't have a point of reference, but I know the area fairly well after working there for just
over 11 years off and on. I'd never seen like it before, it just say there just under the surface for about 45 seconds or so, then headed off down
the channel towards the Alaska penninsula to the northeast. Its speed was around, now I'm just guessing here, but I'd say around 45 to 50 knots,
given how quickly it disappeared.
To the best of my knowlege I am the only living human who saw the thing, I certainly never heard anyone talking about it. Was it an alien from
outerspace, or from the innerearth, or whatever, I don't know. What I do know is, it was certainly weird.
This is kind of a sketchy recall, so feel free to ask questions. If I can recall more information by answering maybe I can figure out what this was
to my own satisfaction.
