In 1971 Ivan T. Sanderson published the book “Invisible Residents”.
This is as far as I know the only book exclusively devoted to UFOs
entering or exiting bodies of water. But the end result of his investigation
was his conclusion that UFOs had bases underwater. My interest in
this aspect of the UFO phenomenon lies in its physical manifestation.
Just as ground traces such as broken tree limbs, swirled grasses,
ground imprints and burned plant roots can give us some fleeting
clues to the “operation/field,” of these craft; I feel that the
observed reaction between the envelope surrounding this craft, and
the water, might further our understanding of the principles behind
it. (See “Samples”)
I was impressed by Paul Hills book “Unconventional Flying
Objects”, and particularly the presentation of the reason for the
lack of a shock wave at supersonic speeds.
This is, in my humble opinion (since I am not a scientist),
an excellent book, and I will not attempt to reiterate his explanations
here but simply suggest that if you are interested in why a UFO
can move quickly through water, that you read his book; of course
from beginning to end, but specifically from page 181 to page 207.
If a molecule of air can be moved in the manner he suggests, all
that is necessary for a visualization of this craft into, out of
and under water is the substitution of a molecule of water in his
are also a few books that deal with this subject as a limited aspect
of the abduction phenomenon. In Budd Hopkins book “Witnessed” the
body of water was the East River in New York City. In Walter
Webb’s Book “Encounter at Buff Ledge the body of water was Lake
Champlain, bordered by the states of New York and Vermont. The most
interesting abduction in relation to A UFOs interaction with water
is “UFO contact from Undersea” by Dr. Virgilio Sanchez-Ocejo
and Lt. Col. Wendelle C. Stevens (Ret.). In this case the abductee
believes the craft is going through a strange tunnel, but in reality,
it’s the field surrounding the craft, keeping the water at a distance,
that gives the tunnel effect.
Not of the abduction genre but of interest is yet another
body of water. On the web try http://www.geocities.com/Area51/Chamber/7746/history.html,
for the “Shag Harbour UFO”.
that contain references of reports of this type: UFO Chronicles of
the Soviet Union: A Cosmic Samizdat and Passport
to Magonia, both by Jacques Vallee.
This project is of my own doing. It will initially be nothing more than
an accumulation point for reports of UFOs and their reaction with
water. If sufficient reports can be accumulated, I will attempt
to break them down statistically and then submit the results to
