I know this is a stretch, but if you kinda mash it all together, you get this...
Water is well known that it does not compress, we have experimented with liquid O2 for deep water diving....
Why would this not also work for deep see vesels? "USO's"

I also believe it would be very usefull in high G applications too, but its only my silly little theory....

Freaky UFO occupant water collection reports:

UFOs & Water Case-Broadwater County Montana, 1940

At an isolated location miner Udo Wartena saw a large disc shaped object about 35 foot high and over 100 feet across hovering above a meadow. The object resembled two soup plates, one inverted over the other and stainless steel in appearance.
Wartena then saw a staircase unfold from the bottom of the craft. Out of it came a man who asked him if the ship could take some water. The man then invited Wartena inside the object.

Wartena accepted and met another man inside that told him they had come from a distant planet and were 609 years old.

They also claimed that they hadn't seen Wartena when they began their descent, since they usually avoided human contact. But they also said they had come "to gather information, leave instructions, or give help where needed."

They told Wartena that their ship was powered "by hydrogen extracted from water, that created its own gravitational field." When Wartena left the ship, it rose straight into the air and quickly disappeared.

UFOs & Water Case, Vico Italy, 07-25-1952

Vico, Italy.

A man who was fishing in the Serchio River saw a disk hovering for 10 min. From it hung a hose that plunged into the water. The object was 20 m in diameter, with five propellers in the rear and a dome with something like blades on top.
An orange glow could be seen through slits along the deck.

A man wearing a diving helmet looked at the witness through a window, and he received a kind of electric shock as a "green ray" hit him.
He looked up with difficulty, in time to see the object fly away toward the east.
Six days later, a stranger with a foreign accent contacted the witness and intimidated him.

UFOs & Water Case, Pardo River, Brazil, 11-04-1954

On November 4, 1954, Jose Alves of Pontal was fishing in the Pardo River near Pontal. The area was deserted, the night quiet with only a slight breeze blowing from the east.
Suddenly Alves spotted a strange craft in the sky, apparently heading toward him. He watched, transfixed, as it closed in with a wobbling motion and landed.

It was so near he could have touched it, he said. The object appearing as two washbowls placed together, looked to be about ten to fifteen feet in diameter. He was too frightened to run.

Three little men, clad in white clothing with close-fitting skull caps, emerged from a window-like opening in the side of the small craft. Their skin appeared to be quite dark.

Alves stood terror-stricken, watching the small creatures collect samples of grass, herbs and leaves of trees; one of them filled a shiny metal tube with river water.

Then, as suddenly as they had come, they jumped back into their machine, which took off vertically as swiftly and as silently as it had come. Residents of Pontal, who heard Alves's story when he came back to town, told the press that he was a quiet man who lived only for "his work and his family."

He had never heard of flying saucers and he was sure the little men were some kind of devils.

UFOs & Water Case, Bradenton, Florida, 12-13-1973

WITNESSES: Patrick Trush/John Dowdy/George Montgomery.

Patrick Thrush was driving north on 27th Street E when he saw what he thought was an airplane in trouble descending toward the Braden River. As he reached the intersection of 27th Street and Manatee Avenue the object had disappeared below the horizon.

Thrush turned west on Manatee Avenue and drove the short distance to the river. At the river he pulled his car off the road onto an embankment, as he started to turn the car around,the high beams from his car picked up a silvery reflecting object hovering 20 feet above the river. A tube extended from the object to the surface of the water. "I just sat there a second," Thrush stated, then he took his camera from the car and took two photographs, using a strobe. The camera was a Canon FT-QL with a 55mm lens.

As soon as the flash went off, the tube, which had been at an angle, straightened up and began retracting into the object. When the tube disappeared, the object headed toward the embankment where Trush was standing. He said he heard several loud clanks and a splash, indicating that something had dropped in the water.

The object moved toward the car and descended slightly, passing over the hood of the automobile, missing the car by about seven feet. Thrush heard something hit the car hood; the object changed direction and moved rapidly to the west, in a curved path.

When the object first began to move it was a pale bluish-green. As it picked up speed it changed to a reddish-orange and rapidly disappeared in the distance.

UFOs & Water Case, La Caleta, near Boca Chica, Dominican Republic, 06-24-1977

(Distrito Nacional)

While returning to Santo Domingo at about one in the morning, Senor A.S. Cruz saw a light over the sea, which descended to water level, and a tube came out of the bottom and took up water. The witness stopped to watch the unusual spectacle. The UFO stopped its auction action and headed toward him.

As it approached, the witness saw two beings in the windows who seemed to be looking at him.

Sr. Cruz tried to drive away, but his car would not start. Then he noticed the presence of another identical UFO.

Behind the two objects was "a pair of thick black tubes or cylinders that were joined together." Suddenly, and in complete silence, the UFOs were sucked up by the tubes, which immediately started moving, and then disappeared before the witness's eyes.

At this time Sr. Cruz's extremities were "asleep."

UFOs & Water Case, Palmas, Tocantis, Brazil, 03-22-2001

Vinicius Da Silva and Marta Rosenthal were returning home from a day of fishing in the River Tocantis when they felt a bump in one of the tires. Thinking he had a flat, Vinicius stopped the vehicle and went to check.
He could not find anything wrong with the tire but suddenly heard Marta screaming and saw her pointing to the right side of the road.There, only a few meters away, hovering over the water was a metallic object with small windows along its edge.

Standing outside the object on a ledge was a humanoid figure of about 1.30 meters in height.

The figure was holding something resembling a hose and was apparently sucking water from the river and into the craft. After about two minutes the humanoid pulled up the hose from the river and re-entered the object. The craft then became very bright and shot away horizontally into the sky.

Other Water UFO reports:

Salina, Venezuela, 08-08-1967

Four days later, on the 8th, Evangelic Pastor Estanislao Lugo Contreras of Salina, Venezuela, was at the shore shortly after dark when he saw an object which he described as disc-shaped and giving off a very bright orange glow. The disc rose out of the sea at about 500 meters (1650 feet) from shore, hovered for a few seconds, then, as in the Yepes incident; rose obliquely into the sky, disappearing within seconds. Unlike Yepes, Pastor Contreras heard what he described as a "buzzing" sound.

When he first noticed the phenomenon, Contreras was attracted by the fact that the sea started to "wrinkle up" or "stir up" in a vast round area. The color of the water in that particular area--Salina is six miles north of the resort city of Arrecifes--is much darker than elsewhere nearby, so the change was easily noticeable. A few moments after the stirring up was noticed, the water began to turn a lighter hue, then a light-blue shade which was very intense. The area continued to grow lighter, then turned whitish, then yellowish, and lastly a brilliant orange shade. Contreras then noticed the sound of the object, which he described as "intense and deafening"; he also felt a tingling sensation in his feet. At this point the huge "pancake"-shaped object emerged from the sea, hovered, and left toward Maiquetía in a slanting ascending pattern.


UFOs Over The Americas, by Jim & Coral Lorenzen, pp. 54-55, © 1968



Leba, Poland, 09-24-1961

Almost 80 miles to the east is the fishing harbor and resort of Łeba, located on the open sea with several coastal lakes nearby. On a Sunday, September 24, 1961, Czaslaw Kawecki, a 28 year old textile technician, was enjoying the last evening hours of his summer vacation.

Then, suddenly, he was almost startled out of his wits. Later, he told Szachnowski:
"A sudden noise of rushing waters made me turn toward the sea again. And right in front of me, about 1000 feet from the shore, the surface was rising in one spot. It looked like a round hill--pushed up from beneath. Then, splashes of water gushed from the top and, like fountain jets, fell around the 'hole' in the waves. From this opening in the water emerged an object which at first I thought to be an elongated triangle.... "

Kawecki admitted mixed feelings of excitement and uneasiness at this point, but he resolved to hold his ground and watch further developments.
"The object rose a few yards," Kawecki continued, "and hovered above this same spot, but there was now a whirlpool of water rushing inward with a loud sucking and gurgling noise. The object itself was black and silent.

"Suddenly there appeared a belt of steady white light segmented by a number of convex dark streaks. This light made glowing reflections on the lower rim of the object. It also lighted considerably the upper rim and all the rest.
Now it became apparent that 'the thing' had the shape of a huge inverted funnel with two rims, separated by a belt of segmented light. About halfway up the upper part was a thin strip of something whiter than the rest on a rather dark body. The slits end of this 'funnel' had a rounded top from which protruded a stump, thinning upward and bent in the middle on one side.

"The stillness of the object lasted about a minute, then there appeared the glow of a second light under the object.It was also a white one, but much stronger and sharper than that emitted by the segmented belt. Almost immediately the 'funnel' tilted slowly northwards--revealing the bottom.
After remaining in this position for about half a minute without changing, it glided about 50 yards eastward, stopped, but soon glided back and stopped again. All this time the bottom of the object was visible to me."

UFO occupant water collection:

UFOs & Water, 1960, Syracuse New York

An electronics engineer was fishing when he heard a shrill, whirring sound and saw a round object, with a rotating light on top, land on the shore.

The sound gradually stopped, an opening became visible, and two dwarfs with oversized heads came out with a hose and pumped water from the river.

Later they appeared to play like children. Their bodies glowed with lights of changing colors.



UFOs & Water Case, Voronov, Russia, 1969

Heinrich Ivanovich was driving his motorcycle along the Kama River near a wooded area. On the side of the road he noticed a man who suddenly raised his hand as if saluting.

Ivanovich slowed his motorbike and approached the stranger.As he approached he noticed a strange disc-shaped object on the ground close to the stranger. The stranger wore a grayish-metallic overall with thick-soled boots.

The man did not wear a hat and had a short haircut. On his left hand he held a hose-like implement, which was apparently extracting water from the Kama River.

At the end of the encounter the stranger asked Ivanovich to stay back from the object and to just observe it take off. The object had a semi-transparent green colored globular dome on top..

This sounds like what ingo swan talked about seeing in alaska in his book I read online. The UFO was taking on water. It was also said the UFO shot lasers at deer and possums and raccoons in the trees. I would like to see a movie of that.

Great thread; rewarded accordingly.

Maybe aliens are giving post procedural sips of water to abductees who sheepishly ask for a dixie cup upon coming to after experiments

On a more serious note, I love cases that demonstrate continuity in narrative and subject matter. It lends credibility to the existence of ufos and their witnesses if their behavior is more than just a light floating around in the sky or a flash of light or disk streaking through the sky for no reason. Kind of hard to mistake what they are talking about with a bird or plane or meteorite.

What many are seeing is purposeful terrestrial interaction that has obvious deeper meaning, that being the scarcity of water in the universe or at least our galaxy, and the usefulness of water at so many levels. Who knows what they need it for. Perhaps exactly what we need it for, drinking.

I would love to see more threads like these on other similar terrestrial interaction. I remember reading an article not long ago about a case that broke after a long time held silence after one witness who had sworn his companions to secrecy for fear of ridicule passed away.

The story went something like:

Three middle aged men were hunting near a large forested ridge area that provided a great vantage point of a small town. As the three emerged from the forest to where the ridge cliff was, they noticed the lights on the communities street posts and other prominent sources, some distance away,
were slowly pulsing bright to dim bright to dim. Considerably closer to where they were standing was a large power distribution grid, I would suspect for the community. Hovering silently above the grid was a huge black disk that was emanating a blue white beam into the grid.
They watched it for sometime and got nervous as they were out in the open and felt vulnerable. One man was visibly shaken and swore the other two to secrecy. I think it happened sometime in the 80's.

An amateur researcher/enthusiast who was a friend of one of the hunters got the story shortly after the other hunter passed away. The researcher knowing the significance of what he was being told took the details of the case to his scientific friends. Most indicated that the ship was most likely putting something into the grid as opposed to taking something out because they speculated that there would be little need of a ship of that magnitude and advancement to be tapping our primitive sources of energy. Kinda makes you wonder. Perhaps downloading or monitoring information from our societies via the power grid. Who knows.

The researcher who knew the man as a family friend said he was extremely conservative, the kind of man who chooses his words wisely and often says few. Would never talk about such things. He got a phone call to meet him for coffee at a random place and felt awkward explaining it.

Sparrowstail, thanks for the reply mate and I think you make a great point about the continuity of these eye-witness reports -some of the testimony does contain extremely similar aspects and more often than not the people come from completely different backgrounds, timezones or countries -great UFO account BTW!

Here's another possible UFO water report from Iowa:

November 23, 1955; Spirit Lake, Iowa.

Earl Rose (a biologist) and Gay Orr (superintendent of schools) were on duty at the GOC post about 5:45 p.m. Attracted by a multi-motor sound on their amplifying pickup system, the two men scanned the sky with binoculars. A brilliant object at low altitude was visible maneuvering erratically to the southwest. As it moved, the UFO changed color from white to bluish-white to green and red.For about twenty minutes, Rose and Orr watched the gyrating object as it moved forward, up and down. At one point, the UFO hovered over Center Lake for about 10 minutes. Its maneuvers were totally unlike an aircraft, and it moved against the wind.

reply to pg1#pid7200814]

I think they are humaniod like us and have needs very similar to us but to be honest i'm not sure the beings would have been trying to get kinks or knots out of the hose?
As i'd imagine having an anti gravity ship that can travel at mind bending speeds and can cloak to be invisible to the naked eye they would probably have something better than a common garden hose to take on water?

Infact i wondered where my garden hose went to last year? As im sure there craft can probably do a bit of time travelling too, Did it specify if the witness seen a wrap of duct tape close to the end of the hose?

Seriously though i guess scaled up, Earth is just a motorway service station like a little chef or shell garage or something along those lines, so they were probably taking on fluids for fuel purposes, oxygen for interstellar travel and consumption for themselves.
If the 1914 witness listened carefully he would have probably heard a faint moooo moooo as im sure they have to eat aswell and there is plenty of beef to take from this planet?

Thats Earth in a universal sense, A roadside service station!

Which begs the question, What do they do when they have a "puncture" or an "overheating engine" who helps fix the radiator?

Obviously the goverment do but "we dont know that"

Puerto Rico Disc Witnessed Taking Up Seawater


VIEGUES - Amidst the mysteries of a U.S. Naval base in Puerto Rico are strange reports of UFO and alien activity. Puerto Rican Ufologist Jorge Martin interviewed Angel Encarnacion, a Vieques fisherman, who said that "One night, while fishing out at sea south of the Navy's shooting range, and east of Vieques, we saw in the distance a really big and shining light. Getting closer, we saw that it a huge round saucer object with lots of lights turning on and off all around the ship." "On the bottom middle there was a really big green light, aimed at the ocean's surface," said Encarnacion. "It wasn't more than 100 feet above the ocean. What shocked me most was seeing the object absorb water from the ocean. You could actually see a big volume of water rising and entering the object. You could not see any fish or anything else in the water going up." Throughout the operation, he said, there was no sound. He and his crew saw strange activity on another night, "a shiny green light rose from the bottom of the ocean," and suddenly disappeared as they heard "the sound of water falling into the ocean nearby," but with no object in sight. They heard--but did not see- something rising in the night sky.

Copernicus, good point and I'd be in the sea - Zoologist Ivan T. Sanderson also thought they were ocean dwellers.

Book: Invisible Residents

Dr. Ivan T. Sanderson who suggested that aliens could remain undetected by building their bases beneath the world’s oceans.

Dr. Sanderson found that by actual count, over 50 percent of the UFO sightings had occurred over, coming from, or plunging into or coming out of water.

Thanks for the replies and it always worries me when people make the 'huge distance' assumption.

Another assumption could be that long lived and sufficiently advanced civilizations live 'off planet' in self contained ships free from the dangers of super volcanoes, ice ages, meteor strikes etc.. thus negating the distance problem.

Yet another assumption would be that they're not actually visiting the planet at all and are in fact sharing it with us.

Maybe that's the big problem with presuming things - we just don't know anything.

I'd say the only thing we do know is that there's now quite a large number of UFO incidents which appear to completely defy rational explanation.

UFO Occupants ask for buckets of water -Josserand,Texas,1987.

A rare UFO-water case, which was brought to public knowledge by the Houston Post, involved a 1987 sighting in the town of Josserand.

Frank Nichols, a farmer known for his good character, heard a "whirring" sound, similar to some of his farm machinery. He immediately went outside to find out what was happening. He was shocked to see an large, unknown object landed in his cornfield. The flying vessel was decorated with brilliant colored lights.

Having heard the stories of the flying ships in local newspapers, he immediately knew that one of these ships was visiting his farm. Two beings soon emerged, holding buckets. They asked Nichols for water. He obliged them. In all, he saw 6-8 crewmen, who invited him to aboard their ship.

Relating the details of his visit inside the ship, he told newspaper reporters that the components of the vessel were far advanced from anything he had seen before

Similar account from Germany,1980:

Location. Butzbacher Forsthaus Hessen Germany

Date: March 23 1980

Time: 0320A

A farmer was alone in his house when he suddenly heard someone knocking on his window; he stepped out to check and was confronted by two men that asked him for water. The two men wore silvery outfits, had light skin and dark hair, with very attractive features, and looked very similar to each other. The witness brought them a bottle of Seltzer water and asked them if they spoke English. They did not reply and then walked towards a nearby huge dazzling hovering object. The witness panicked and went to notify the police, but both the object and the men had departed when he returned with the authorities.

Ive heard about this before and have thought perhaps it is a form of fuel or contibutes to a fuel system for them? Not sure exactly of course.

I wonder if they are seen taking on salt water or fresh water..or perhaps both.

Very interesting stuff
