RARE USO CASE FROM MY PERSONAL ARCHIVE:
Location: chicoutimi, Province du Quebec, Canada
Summary: Odd underwater lights seen in Saguenay River
Date Reported: 7/12/2005 6:56:39 PM
Umina Central Coast, N.S.W - 3rd April 1997
At 10.22pm a respondent reports sighting up 12 illuminated triangular or
stealth type aircraft travelling overhead towards the Palm Beach area from
Umina, that minutes later seemed to disappear into the sea.
Whilst these were going overhead the respondent felt an unusual electrical
field, and ten minutes afterwards a large RAAF type of aircraft with
a dish on top followed the same course and direction, with helicopters
equipped with large spotlights and a light aircraft following later.
Source: Ross Dowe - Australia's National UFO Hotline
Time Seen: Friday 16th June between 5.45pm and 6.00pm
Location: Empire Bay (Gosford area)
Reportee: Alison F
Report given to nearest rep: Doug Moffett
Tel: 02 43
Alison noticed an illuminated object over the water, hovering low on the horizon. The object had 8 square lights right around, it was football shaped with a white/gold glow and the well defined square lights were brighter than the rest of the object. The proximity estimated was quite close, approx 200-300 mtrs and elevation about a tree and a half above the water. The object was not as big as the Goodyear blimp which was not flying in that area and in fact not even in the air at that time on that day. The illumination made no noise, had no navigation lights, appeared as a “solid” light and no evidence of searchlight beams could be found.
The illumination was larger than thumb and forefinger at full stretch at arms length, very large or very close, the witness felt the latter was the case. It was later briefly seen as the witness dropped her parents off to Umina as an illumination in the clouds, there was no beam under the cloud and the moon was visible to the R/H/S of the object although the night was somewhat cloudy.
The duration of the main sighting was approx 10-15 mins and was reported to the witness by a local real estate agent as they were in casual conversation in a shop the next morning, who witnessed the same object at the same time.

I know that Canada is a very beautiful country with the 2 big world oceans, lots of famous lakes and perhaps thousands of rivers etc. Sometimes I check for the USO sighting places thru the google image server, and I might say that the Saguenay River is very scenic really. Ur a lucky guy then.
I also have a respect to all the sceptical people especially in the Underwater UFO field. I know the fact that the ET theory by itself could not explain all those mysterious USO sightings or vice virsa. We need the skeptics in every area of the life, cos I believe that they always force us to develop further and further. However, they sometimes forget the simple truth that at certain situations, their sceptism does not work at all. For example, we cannot explain all the reports of strange underwater lights via bioluminescence or the like. Because, there are some complex events in which the luminous USOs or even some dark objects go into or come out of the water, too. So, not all the submarine lights could be accounted as the bioluminescent creatures simply as I think. It would explain only a small portion of all the USOlogical phenomena.
And if u hear sumtin new in relation to the Underwater UFO phenomenon, please inform us on here as soon as possible. Thanks.
THE GUAYAQUIL BAY UFO INCIDENT, 1978
(Here is the amazing story of UFOs which were observed off the Guayaquil Bay, Ecuador. U cannot find this USO case in the western UFO literature.)
On June 15, 1978, in the Guayaquil Bay of South America, actually not much far from the coast of Ecuador, the crew of Soviet motor ship “Novokuznetsk” witnessed the uncommon spectacles. First of all, four luminous strips (each with the length of 20 meters) appeared in the water near the nose of the vessel. Then, two additional strips (each with the length of 10 meters) approached the starboard side of the ship. Following all these, nearly 100 meters off the vessel, a flattened white sphere with the diameter of a football departed from under the water and it rapidly went around the vessel. UFO hovered at 20 meters altitude above the ship for several seconds. Then, the strange object rose upward and did a zigzag in the sky and again it submerged back into the water.
A Strange Sight I Saw at Tanjung Kling Beach, Malacca by Mr Ghaz From authspot.com, Mar 18, 2009
18 March 2009. From the middle of the boiling and foaming appeared a bright blue ball of light. The light slowly and ponderously rose from the sea bottom, all the time emitting the roaring sound...
A Strange Sight I Saw at Tanjung Kling Beach, Malacca
During the last holidays, two of my friends Tan and Eric, and I went camping by the sea a few miles from Tanjung Kling Beach, Malacca, Malaysia. It was such a glorious change from sitting for the recent final school examinations. We felt, we really deserved the rest after having slogged so hard for the MPOB (Malaysian Palm Oil Board) examinations.
We were all in high spirits when we pitched our tent in an area shaded by trees. The sea breeze was cool and refreshing in the evening we went for a swim in the sea after which we cooked ourselves a meal. Strange how ordinary rice always tasted better when cooked in camp; maybe because it was half - cooked. We wolves down our meal washed up and then started a bonfire. All that evening we sat by the bonfire and sang songs. It was well past midnight when we finally decided to turn in, tired but happy.
I was not sure how long I had been sleeping when I awoke with a start. Except for gentle breaking of waves on the shore, it was very quiet around us, too quiet. I felt the hair at the back of my neck rising. An unexplained chill ran through my body. So I got up and left the tent. Outside it was pitch - dark except for the twinkling stars above and the shimmering surface of the sea below. I sat down on the wet grass trying to figure out what caused the uneasiness within me.
The longer I sat the worse the uneasiness became. I imagined that the sea was beginning to shimmer more. I peered intently at the shimmering and it seemed to become even more intense. Then I became aware of a roaring sound. It could not be the roar of the waves breaking for the roar was too loud. Good God, I thought, there was something weird going on here. I felt something clammy on my hand and I let out a loud yell of fear.
“What's happening?” Eric was holding my hand tightly I breathed a sign of relief.
Before I could answer Eric, the sea began to boil and foam. The roaring had reached an unbearable pitch. All we could do was to cover our ears tightly. The sight of the sea in turmoil transfixed our eyes.
From the middle of the boiling and foaming appeared a bright blue ball of light. The light slowly and ponderously rose from the sea bottom, all the time emitting the roaring sound. The sea seemed to swell around the blue light. I was gripped by fear and panic but I could not take my eyes off the fantastic sight that exuded a power that I could not comprehend.
Gradually the blue ball of light broke the surface and hovered majestically pulsating a few meters above the boiling sea. The roaring had changed to a high pitched whining that was built up in intensity like that of a jet plane beginning its takeoff. Then, pow! The blue ball of fire shot off skywards with incredible speed. In a matter of seconds I could not see it anymore! All I could see were the stars twinkling as though nothing had happened.
Indeed, the sea was no longer boiling and foaming and I could hear night insects chirping. Everything around us was normal again except that I felt that I was trembling. Then I realized that Eric was hugging me and crying softly. He was trembling, both of us were.
Source: fiveprime.org/hivemind/Tags/sad, sea
A great feeling of relaxation swept over me. I realized that we were witnesses to an extraordinary event. It frightened us considerably and doubts that we will ever forget the experience.
After a short while, Eric calmed down but he still could not speak. So I led him back to the tent so that he could lie down. What did we find in the tent? While Tan, he snoring contentedly, not knowing what had happened outside.
UFO Sightings in Morocco – in 1967
Since I posted my story on UFO’s in Mexico a couple days back, that seems to be what is drawing the heaviest traffic on my blog these past few days. So I guess that means it merits another post!
One of my friends from Chile has written to tell me that, “By the way, the heaviest day’s traffic the SANTIAGO TIMES ever had came because we did a story on Chilean UFOs. I bet there are a lot of UFO stories in Morocco.“
In case any readers want to see that, I looked it up and here it is:
I actually did find a story about UFO’s in Morocco a couple of years ago, and luckily, saved the information. It appears that there were two sightings. One was in Agadir (beach resort on the Atlantic coast) on January 13, 1967. The other sighting was at a palce called Kasbah Tadla on April 6, 1967. I’m not sure where Kasbah Tadla is, but my closest guess from looking at map coordinates given in the report (32°36′ N, 6°17′ W), it appears to be just on the eastern side of the High Atlas Mountains, possibly in the mountains, possibly in the desert. I’m not very familiar with this exact location in Morocco.
The Agadir report forwards and translates two articles which appeared in Le Petit Marocain on April 14, 1967. The report says, ‘The two reports are contradictory, but indicates a high level of local interest in the subject of UFO’s.”
Science Fiction or Science?
A luminous object goes across the sky and falls down into the sea. This phenomenon took place on Thursday evening. Complete disagreement among the witnesses: some say there was a big explosion, others assert they didn’t hear anything.
and the other article:
On Thursday, around 19:30 (7:30 PM) hours, the sky above Agadir was crossed by a very luminous object, flying in the northeast to southwest direction. The white trail left by the object turned into a rainbow. The object fell down into the sea with a deafening sound, according to some witnesses. Is it one of those rockets, which go out of control from time to time? It is possible, but the idea that it might be a meteorite is prevailing among the population.
And the Kasbah Tadla report:
Petit Marocain, 2 April, 1967
Flying Saucers over Kasbah Tadla.
Several persons are said to have seen on 28 March 1967 around 19:15 (7:15 PM) hours a round object 8.5 meters (about ten feet) in diameter land on the roof of a house in “Ancien-One,” then resume its flight and disappear into the sky. According to the information given by a witness, a former pupil in the school and now a student in Marrakech, the object was gliding in a circular movement, and then stood 50 centimeters (about two feet) above their roof. It looked to have a long shape, with two distinct ends but it resumed its circular shape by rotating on itself and transmitting a vivid red light. Neighbors, passers-by, and children are said to have looked for a few seconds at this unusual sight.

My next post, later today, will update some more recent claims of UFO sightings in Morocco.
THE MATANZAS BAY UFO INCIDENT, 1959
(Here is the amazing story of a UFO which emerged from the Matanzas Bay, Cuba. U cannot find this Cuban USO case in the western UFO literature.)
It was the 5th of July 1959. A group of children scouts, who had left from the district of Versalles, just arrived the coastal area at 9:30 on Sunday morning. There were more than 30 people in the group all together with the guides. The exact position of the group was almost in front of the L´amours Beach (Playa L´amours) in the Matanzas Bay. The morning was clear, sunny with a virtually bright sky.
All of a sudden, the guides who were near the waterline, began shouting like: “Look at this!” Then all the people gathered at the border of sea. They were now witnessing an object which appeared to have come out of the water. UFO was just a few meters above the surface of the sea and hovered over there as if to balance itself.
Some of the observers told that the object had an oval shape with a spinning top while the others commonly affirmed UFO had the disc form, bearing some similarity to the ordinary flying saucers. A few seconds later, the shining disc levelled itself perfectly, remaining parallel to the sea. Immediately, UFO ascended vertically with some dizziness, and it disappeared into the sky in less than 15 seconds.
According to the testimonies at hand, the machine seemed to be metallic and it had a brilliant silver colour. By the time, there were some additional eyewitnesses to the event. Luckily, 2 fishermen in a boat also saw the same object from nearby. They said UFO had no wings, and it was between 6-8 meters in diameter. Fishermen added that the object ascended from a depth of 15 meters without emitting any sound. UFO did not leave any wake in the water, either. After all, this strange USO incident happened in less than 200 meters, off the coast.

THE ADEN GULF UFO INCIDENT, 1977
(Here is the amazing story of the marine lightwheel which has been observed in the Gulf of Aden, Indian Ocean. U cannot find this Russian USO case in the western UFO literature.)
In the year of 1977, the crew of Russian motor ship “Nikolai Kremyansky” witnessed an uncommon phenomenon in the Gulf of Aden, Indian Ocean. Suddenly, the water was illuminated by a solid white light which formed all around the vessel. This strange light seemed to be an enormous circle, because it almost reached the horizon. The crew of the ship had an impression that a gigantic lantern was lit from under the sea. So, it looked like as if it illuminated everything by daylight. Additionally, without any apparent reason, the speed of the main engine dropped down from 107 rev/min to 104 rev/min. The temperature of the sea water also changed dramatically.

We sailed from King Harbor near San Pedro, Ca. leaving at midnight and heading for Catalina Island. As we neared half way we saw a green glow ahead of us in the fog. We crossed over 3 bright luminescent lime green rings below us in the sea. They were also equi-distant from each other in a triangle formation. Our sailboat and sails glowed green as we passed thru them....looking back they remained in place for 10-15 min. before fading off in the fog.
We were simply amazed and thought that some thing awsome was there hidden just below the surface.

UFO SIGHTING REPORT
Date: June, 1976
Location: Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
Summary: Circular disc shaped object observed under recreational fishing boat.
Date Reported: 3/16/2006 6:30:32 PM
Full Description & Details:
During a fishing trip with one companion an inexplicable incident occurred that still puzzles me some thirty years later. The location was the eastern side of Moreton Bay, Queensland. This is a largely shallow stretch of water, but occurred in the relatively small portion where depth increases to about 30 metres. We had been fishing on the drift on an almost calm day when the fish went off the bite and the decision was made to motor back up current (tidal). Upon reeling in the lines I became aware that the water beneath the boat had "turned white". It quickly bacame apparent that under the boat was a seemingly white circular object about 10 meters in diameter stationary at a depth of about 5 metres or perhaps a little more. The waters in this area are quite clear and the bottom is visible at about 7 metres depth not far away. As I said though this was in water about 30 metres deep.
For a period of at least 10 minutes this "thing" remained in position, not squarely under the 6 metre boat but offset slightly. My initial reaction, not being that experienced on the water at that time, was that it must be a dense aggregation of marine life of some kind, though it looked like a helicopter landing pad, minus markings of any kind submerged beneath us. Peering into the water, no detail of any kind was evident, just uniform whiteness. My fishing mate was becoming quite agitated by this interloper, repeated asking "What the hell is it? "I could offer no explanation. Curiousity now got the better of him, and he stripped off to dive in to investigate. What occurred next convinced me we had been in strange company indeed! No sooner had he hit the water our visitor tilted rapidly to a shallowish angle and disappeared rapidly away from us. I had the immediate impression of a solid object, all-of-a piece under intelligent control. Upon surfacing my friend reported seeing nothing at all, not surprising really considering no mask and the sudden movement of this object. No more was seen of it, and we returned to port, and a barbeque meal.
Not surprisingly, the subject turned to unexplained phenomona, and my "diver" friend and another chap present, a merchant seaman, spoke of an eerie incident that occurred some five years prior in an offshore overnight fishing in oceanic waters. The night was calm and windless and around midnight a strange sound was heard that they described as similar to the sound you get when you move your hand over a vacuum cleaner nozzle-that is, a sucking noise. This continued for fully fifteen minutes, by which time our merchant mariner was becoming panicky. Immediately the sound stopped, overhead travelling at incredible speed three lights in a triangular configuration heading south disappearing to the horizon in seconds. Amazingly, this corroborated a story told to me some years earlier by a close relative. He was parked with his girlfriend on a headland some ten miles from where the seaborne observation occurred on what may well have been that night.. Stretching his legs outside the car, he was shocked by three lights as described above flying at great speed to the south......His instinctive reaction was to duck, as to him they seemed very low, and dazzlingly fast.
I hope the above adds something your information bank on your subject of interest.

It was late at night approx 00:30 am and my son and i were returning from a trip on the east coast, as we were driving back along the brinktop road, near sorell, we noticed some lights approaching from the east, we thought it was a helicopter, along side us as we drove, then it took off over to the north east, and as we drove further along, the huge bright light apeared again, and approached us from the north east and cut in front of us, becoming stationary hovering on a hill next to the road, i slowd my car to a stop and a very bright search like light illuminated our car, and ourselves thru the sun roof, the odd thing was there was absolutly NO noise! totally silent! i could see a dark space in the center of the bright lighted object, then like a light switch being switched off, it dissappeared, moments later my husband drove up behind me, he had noticed the light, but didnt think anything of it... i must admit this particuar part of the road always gives me a strange feeling and leading up to this event i had been strangly drawn to this reserve, and had had recurring dreams of sitting on the hill where the object had hovered, bizarre! i did not feel afraid, nor did my son, in fact we felt quiet relaxed, normaly i would be a little scared in the middle of nowhere... I return many times to the same spot, and have witnessed it again since then, but only the once, and this time i was alone, and got scared and drove off, i notified the ufo guys here and they did some research, and there were no explanations for what i had seen, they rang the airports, and rotarlift helicopters, ect., but nothing was out at that time, nor of an evening, and what i had seen was silent! it could not have been a helicopter, it was nothing like anything i have ever experianced before...
I have also had two other experiances, where i witnessed at 6 am... i was driving home over the bowen bridge towards old beach, as i turned across the road onto the east derwnt highway, i happened to look across the water and as the sun was just coming up i saw a huge reflection... i looked harder and noticed a huge elongated object, that was at least the length of approx 50' feet or so, with a very subtle and slight dome or saucer shape on top, it was only partly submerged from the water, i though it may have been a submarine, although i didnt think we had submarines in the derwnt river, or of that size! it appeared to be a dark gery metallic colur and was shining from the light of the sun, i also noticed that there seemed to be a join of some kind from the elongated part, to where the dome shape began, and along this part seemed to be a pattern similar to lights, although switched off, as they were the same colur as the rest of the object, as i was still driving very slowely at this stage, i nearly vered into another car, so took my eyes off the object for a few seconds to pull over, but when i had looked again, it was gone, i know what i saw, some people said it could have been a reflection of some kind, but i was looking at it long enough to know it was real... a few days earlier i had noticed two rings of light floating beneath the water in the same spot at the same time of morning, they were very pretty, and i nearly had an accident watching them as i drove, and again they dissapeared, i have been wanting to get back there ever since with a video cam and try and get some footage, as im not the only one whos noticed unusual things in the derwent river. hope this interests you.
I am a fundraising salesperson for a charity in Hobart, and am a mother of one, i have a very strong interest in ufos since my experiances, and wish to learn more, i wish to go back to uni. and study astronomy, and the like, as i have great love of our universe and beyond.
I beleive for some reason, few of us are somehow beyond our understanding, able to spiritually connect with something not of earth, and as a result were are lucky enough to become spiritually aware and hopefully learn enough to understand why some of us are able to see and why some of us are not. it is a gift to just beleive!

From UFO RESEARCH QUEENSLAND: UFO SIGHTINGS 2001
Arundel, Monday June 25 2001, 6.40 pm
My wife, three children and myself saw what we believe to be a UFO on the night of Monday 25th June 2001. I live in Arundel [Gold Coast] and the object was observed due east from my house at 18.40 hrs AEST. It was at an elevation of about 30 to 40 degrees initially to the east and after a few moments it vanished from view in a south southeast direction. I am an aircraft mechanic by trade and I know it was not an aircraft of a commercial type nor any current military variant. It was stationary in the sky. Round and bright orange but not too bright. The rest of the family ran outside and I went to get my telescope. Stupid indeed, my digital video camera would have been better. I observed it start to move in a horizontal plane to my right and although I can not be sure of the distance [several hundred or thousand of miles], it appeared from its mass to move quite quickly. It then appeared to move in a slight downward arc as if it was moving closer and lower towards us, then it accelerated slowly at first and then faster, to my right and then appeared to climb away from us. the intensity of the light appeared to fade as it turned away from us. It dimmed and then disappeared. This all happened over about 4 minutes. After about 5 minutes of frantically searching the night sky we all then observed a meteorite falling to earth from right above us. It was a very intense bright white light with a spiralling smoke trail. It was very close and fell in the east, presumably into the ocean. I do not think it was your common shooting star as it was too close and you could actually see the smoke trail in the moonlight. I noticed in today’s Gold Coast Bulletin there have been other sightings of this orange light recently.
Hervey Bay, June/July 2001, 5.45 am
We live in River Heads Hervey Bay. One morning at about 5.45 am my dad and my brother saw an unusual object which they say was a UFO. One night before this we saw a meteor land in the sea, as our house is near the sea. Two nights later we saw another similar object. About 2 weeks later we were coming home late one night and saw a bright light like an orange lightbulb in the sky and then all of a sudden there was another one next to it, and then they both extinguished, as though someone had turned the light off. We live on a road that leads to the barge to Fraser Island and have water on both sides. We have been looking out for other objects but have not had any luck. I have not believed in UFOs [not a hundred percent] but now I know there must be something out there.
From UFO RESEARCH QUEENSLAND: UFO SIGHTINGS 2007
Swan Bay, NSW, November 1 2007, 8.55pm
A woman reported a triangular object the size of a house surrounded by 30 to 40 small fast moving lights, alternately lighting up the water of the Bay and the sky. While she was describing the events as they happened, her mobile phone cut out.
Traveston, Gympie, November 10-11 2007
An unusual pattern was found on the reporter's son-in-law's property on the weekend of November 10 and 11 2007. The circled had formed in water-lilies in a dam in Traveston, Gympie (north of Brisbane). The formation of the circles was not observed by any witnesses and vegetation and livestock in the neighbouring paddock displayed no unusual behaviour or ill-effects. There are no known weather events that could have caused the lilies to separate in the manner that they have. The circle has a centre area clear of lilies or other vegetation, with the lilies being divided into two distinct bands, with a thin dividing area between these bands. The person reporting the event stated that "some lilies had obviously floated a bit because the circle was a bit wobbly so they must have been torn from their roots. Looking at the picture it seems there are some brownish lilies, but whether or not its browning off I can't remember. We were going to take more photos but the phone's battery went dead."
From UFO RESEARCH QUEENSLAND: UFO SIGHTINGS 2008
Mermaid Beach, April 7 2008, 8.50 pm
Walking down to the beach, we saw directly east and about ten degrees to the right, a light hovering out over the sea on the horizon. We also noticed at least one or possibly two airplanes circling the objects with flashing lights on. I believe they were observing it too. Holding a 50-cent piece at arm's length, I estimated the object as around the length of four buses back to back.
We only saw its lights, and they seemed to move or manifest into different positions on the craft. The lights were bright yellow and/or white. It was shaped like a large navel ship from what I saw, and its lights seemed to move and rearrange themselves, but within the area of vehicle. Apart from that, did not see it separate. I believe it was a "USO." It would look like a submarine with its light under water, then it would seem to manifest like it was sitting on the water, then it would rise directly up, move sideways and lower back to the surface, and then go under water again, several times.
At around 9.45 pm (after nearly an hour of observation) it seemed to be underwater, then it went north along the coast and I could see it in the distance near 'The Spit.' When I watched it, it was hovering around quite slowly, moving around 50 kph, and when it went underwater it sped off north very quickly. It was there one moment, then just gone. It was also witnessed by my girlfriend who was at Surfers Paradise, as I made phone contact with her while sighting it.

Summary: While on a fishing trip, about mid-morning, with the boat stopped...a small boy pulled on my shirt saying "What is that?" reapeatedly...As I looked left of the boat, about 15 -20 feet away, The water began boiling in a perimiter around the objects edges...It seemed to be trying to surface. I saw it well in the sunny waves...It eazed towards our boat, then back."I don't Know." I kept saying. It stayed just a half a foot under the surface, then slowly submerged...
Date Reported: 4/17/2006 11:09:18 PM
Sighting Time: 10:40 a.m.
No. of Witnesses: 3
Duration: 9-10 minutes
Appearance / Description of Object(s):
At first, it looked like an orange carpet rising up from the depths. Then as it became clearer, it was obviously a rectagle shaped perimeter with radiased corners. The background color was Orange-yellow with drk brown pigmented camo shapes all-over it's surface. they seemed to be seared-into the thing....Not printed on...there seemed to be something at the stern like a propulsion system that made a little comotion...It was mired with sea-weeds and hard to describe...
Size of Object(s):
I was only 15 feet away from this thing, so my arms would bee all out to the sides...(giant fish style) it was 20-25 feet wide and 35 to 40 feet long.
Description of Area / Surroundings:
No power plants...There are some bases in Florida some 30-40 miles away....It was a very public area right in the mouth of a major dock-harbor. On both sides of the waterway, people are on vacation at the many hotels and condos in both directions along the beaches. It was a sunny day with moderate water visability.
Full Description & Details:
I was taking 2 kids fishing on a small pleasure boat out of Orange Beach in Gulf Shores
Alabama...It was a typical Summer day, sunny with a light chop on the water...only a few clouds in the sky about mid morning.....I captained the boat just a little ways outside the jetties of the harbor and cut the motor off near a large buoy since there were a lot of bait fish jumping. I began baiting hooks when the boy standing next to me said "Mr. Steve, Mr. Steve!,...What's That!! At first I ignored him cause I was busy.....But he kept on and so finally I looked towards where he was pointing....and DANG!! I thought "What the heck is THAT Thing?? I couldn't take my eyes off it.....It was about 35-40 feet long, 25feet across. The water all along it's perimeter seemed to boil and produced a smoke-effect as it raised toward the surface...At first I could not see a shape or surface until it came closer to the waters plane. The boiling bubbles stopped. Now it seemed to suspend at 1half a foot to 2 feet below the surface right next to our vessel...about 15 feeet away...I watched it keenly for about 10 minutes. I figured Is it an animal? or a machine?? over and over These thoughts came in....I thought Is there a big net on board to catch it with? Maybe I could tie on a big hook and foul hook it...It was just to big....Bigger than our boat...So I couldn't bring it in.....I know it was someTHING! It looked to be flat in shape, I could not tell how thick it was from my perspective, But I saw right up close that it had an orange-ish yellow background color, and many little "camo" shapes all over it's surface....all brown and black and evenly spaced away from each other....similar to a burmese python skin witout any scales. Then, it slowly moved back down into the depths. I did see at the far end what looked to be a pile of sea weeds clumped at it's stern before it went down.....I worked as a graphic artist for a time and can make a perfect re-creation of what I saw if you would like.......Steven T.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
It may have been a sub of some kind.....but non like I have ever seen....Most subs don't come with Camo on the surface.
I work as a graphic artist and have a small business re-modeling homes. I used to be a technical writer....and have worked on some defense projects.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting:
I have seen other objects in the sky of North Alabama.....I think most are top secret military craft not yet known to the public.
I felt I should report this sighting to someone since USO's are on the seen now...I know
I'm not the only one to have seen them.
