Perhaps the use of water has nothing do with cooling or propulsion or any time of engineering, at all. Maybe these "E.T." (or perhaps, terrestrials) have a natural habit more amenable to an aquatic environment. So, much as we bring air into space to suite are natural environment (Earth's surface), they bring water into their ships to suite their natural habitat (water). Just a thought.
Town Turns Out To Watch UFO
A saucer-shaped UFO "as big as a school bus" has been observed by more than one hundred residents of Lexington, Ala., during recent weeks.
According to one NICAP member living in the area, scores of individuals have been gathering each night around the town in hopes of spotting the UFO.
Most of the sightings have occurred between 8 and 9 p.m., and while descriptions differ in minor details, most describe the object as saucer-shaped and reddish or bluish in color.
One of the most recent sightings occurred Sunday, Feb. 4, 1973, when two young men driving in Lexington spotted a low-flying object and followed it at 50 mph as it headed towards Rogersville and than on to Wheeler Dam. As the witnesses approached the dam, they said the UFO appeared to hover over the lake and then move off towards Huntsville. A TVA worker employed at the Wheeler Dam also said he saw it.
One Lexington resident, describing his town as a quiet town where the "old values" still count, said "there has never been anything like this to stir up a town — I don't know what or why it is bugging us, but I hope we find out."
Georgia Bay, 1914
In 1966, in a letter received at APRO headquarters, after reading several articles by Coral Lorenzen in Fate magazine, a man confided his memories to someone who apparently "would listen to such revelations with a sympathetic ear." The writer said that late one August evening in 1914, a man and woman, their three small children, and three young American men crouched behind rocks and brush along the banks of Lake Ontario at Georgia Bay, Canada, when they saw a round craft, which appeared to be about 15 feet in diameter, rested on the surface of the water about 450 feet from shore. On the square-shaped substructure at the water line, they allegedly saw two small men-like creatures that were busy with some sort of green "hose." The little men worked quickly and seemed to be having some problem with kinks in the hose, by the way they manipulated it. APRO contacted the writer, identified the witnesses, and found out there was nothing to cast doubt on the report.
The Lake Baskatong Sighting of 1978
UFO expert Marc Leduc (see above) predicted 1978 to be a “busy year” for UFO sightings in Quebec, and he wasn’t wrong, as this sighting demonstrates.
Two citizens of Île-Perrot went camping at La Vérendrye park on Saturday, March 11th, 1978, specifically by Lake Baskatong. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, the pair suddenly saw an object “hurtle out of the sky” which sent them in a fit of fear fleeing the scene.
Once the duo recovered their wits, they returned to the lake, only to see what they said was a UFO “hovering silently over the water” for about 30 seconds.
Despite capturing a photo of the alleged UFO, the Île-Perrot pair couldn’t convince officials, since the clarity of the image was quite poor.

Retired RCMP officer remembers Clarenville UFO experience
When the 25-year-old Blackwood responded to the call from the group on Marine Drive, he assumed it was a simple case of the b’ys getting into the moonshine and letting their imaginations run wild.
But, what Blackwood ended up seeing made him a minor celebrity and the subject of ridicule on the force, so much so that after leaving Clarenville he rarely spoke of the incident.
“I went down and the craft was hovering between Clarenville and Random Island, right on the water. It was only a couple hundred feet off the water. It was there for good two hours before it left,” the now retired Blackwood told The Packet from his home in Nova Scotia.
“I activated the roof lights of my police car and it activated lights at the same time.”
Using a special telescope for drug surveillance, the once skeptical Blackwood had an up close view to something he can’t explain to this day.
“Chester (Lethbridge) had binoculars. But this thing was a lot better with 60 times’ magnification. I got to see it close up. It didn’t come any closer to us and as it started to leave it went up slow, taking forever to rise — then vroom — gone like a shooting star,” Blackwood said..
Blackwood is an aircraft enthusiast with a working knowledge of all kinds of planes. He is confidently convinced the hovering object the size of a Boeing 737, was not something from around here.
“I’m familiar with aircrafts of all shapes and sizes. But the metal on it was not like aircraft metal. It was very dull and not shiny at all. It wasn’t even smooth. It was very coarse looking,” he said.
“The technology was way beyond what we had then and still way beyond what we have now.”
A woman saw a "bell shaped object" hover over the Mersey near Fiddlers Ferry power station. It appeared to be "sucking up a column of water" from the river. Six other passers-by also witnessed the event. This was the start of a two-month spate of sightings over Halton. Many witnesses saw all manner of unusual objects and lights, ranging from bright star like objects, flying discs and black triangles to huge wedge shaped objects which were described as being larger than two football pitches.
Mrs. H was in Kaltenbach near Stein am Rhein across from the palace Hohenklingen. From there was a panoramic view of the lake and its transition into a river. It was around 6 am. The sun rose, and from her position Ms H. saw "a large, strange flying object", a classic flying saucer, which had a wide disk with a cupola above and a curved out cupola like from below.
The disk-like UFO hovered over the river. Then the underside of the UFO opened. Out of the opened hatch came something like a long, very thin tube. It went into the Rhine. Nothing happened for ten minutes. Then the hose was drawn in again and the hatch closed.
The flying saucer shot up vertically with enormous speed. It revolved, speed towards Germany and vanished (mysteries 8, Page. 56).
The four of us were playing out near the pond when we notice[d] a light coming toward us from the distance. Slowly it approched [sic-approached] over the pond and dropped a long cylinder into the pond and started sucking up water. I got scared and ran into the house to hide under the couch. My brother runs in and says we have to tell Mom and the other parents. We run to the next house and in panic we expalin [sic-explain] what is going on right outside. At first they thought we were just kidding. But finally we got them to come outside and by that time it was moving off into the distance.
Heavy water (deuterium oxide[...]) is a form of water that contains a larger than normal amount of the hydrogen isotope deuterium (2-H or D, also known as heavy hydrogen), rather than the common hydrogen-1 isotope (1-H or H, also called protium) that makes up most of the hydrogen in normal water.
