He reported a light coming out of the sea (from Newport) going over the airfield and being obscured from vision by going behind the overhaul and repair building. Now I had two sightings and although about two hours had elapsed, I awoke the Chief on duty and reported the U.F.O. sightings. The Chief was incredulous and wouldn’t be a party to such a report. I insisted that I enter it in the log for that watch, but the Chief and by now the duty officer were adamant that they weren’t going to be laughed out of the Navy,
At approximately 2030 hours on 10 May, in the city of Paphos, southwest Cyprus, a group of persons, including a noted British scientist, sighted an unidentified object which appeared to rise sharply from the level of the sea and disappeared into the sky. The object appeared to the observers to be of a circular shape and emitted a luminous light. It appeared to waver back and forth for a brief interval before fading out of sight directly overhead. At the time of the incident, the sky was clear and there was no air traffic in the vicinity of Cyprus.
Suddenly one of these objects appeared at close range on our port bow at a low elevation. It was disc-shaped and consisted of a very bright light with black windows running around the whole side which was visible to us. It maintained perfect station on us for at least fifteen minutes. I scanned the object with binoculars attempting to see into the windows but saw nothing. I counted the windows and recall there were about two dozen. They were very large and close together and completely black.
An undated letter was received by Mr. Grusinski from William H. "Boots" Pierce, Cdr., USN (Ret.), which read in part, "Unfortunately though, I had debarked from ROOSEVELT by 1958 and was instructing at Pensacola. I did not make the cruise mentioned in your letter, but I did hear about the sighting at Gitmo. In fact, FDR's log will show a UFO sighting during 1953 when we took her to the Med [Mediterranean-CF-], both a visual sighting from the bridge and on CIC's radars. It was an interesting thing of which I was a part."
A CIA report on a North African press story read: "According to statements by several persons, a round, luminous, yellow-orange [object?] appeared in the sky over Algiers at 1525 hours on 27 January 1954; it was moving in the direction of Cap Matifou. The object grew larger until it was two or three times the size of the Sun; then it diminished in size and disappeared on the horizon, sinking, seemingly, into the sea."

I know I sound like an old broken record but one day people will get it.

Are they coming from space, and living right in our ocean to avoid us detecting them? Have they always been living underneath the water?
Officers noted a "red glow" in its conning tower and a light in the superstructure. An officer at the Jacksonville Naval Air Station said the Navy had sent an anti-submarine squadron into a search for the sub. But he would not reveal the number of planes engaged. The Navy spokesman also said he did not believe it was known if the submarine had been identified as friendly or hostile.
There are no American submarines in the area, the spokesman said. He said the water at that portion of the coast was shallow far out to sea and the supposed submarines would have to have been operating in only 50 feet of water, “which doesn’t make sense.”
“If they were submarines, they were unmarked,” Drinkwater said. D. A. Sutton, a telephone construction company employee, said he observed the strange objects from atop 40-foot telephone poles. “I definitely saw something and it looked like two subs,” he said. He was unable to identify the objects definitely as subs because of poor visibility.
Just a week later another incident occurred about 1,000 miles west of Komatsu. This one is unique in U.F.O. sightings for two reasons:
One: It was seen by a large number of witnesses including civilian and American personnel.
Two: The object was under direct and relatively close observation for about 90 minutes!
The incident began about 8 p.m. at Pusan, Korea, on January 15. The object was described to military authorities as being "about the size of a large washtub and emitting a blue-gray glow. It was seen falling into the water about 50 yards off-shore near Heunde.”
It was early enough in the evening to attract the attention of a large number of Korean townsfolk. They reported that the glow continued for about an hour and a half before the object "apparently sank into the sea."
By this time Korean National Police arrived at the scene and they, in turn, alerted U.S. Military Police. Cpl. Ben Elliot, an M.P. on patrol duty that night, was on the scene quickly enough to observe the object floating in the water for almost an hour.
