Go Back Report # 1175


The following is a letter received by me (CF), and I will keep the witness’s name confidential.

Dear Carl,

            In 1974, I witnessed a USO event along with 14 other people in Hawaii. Actually there were five objects moving at a high rate of speed, in formation. I am a licensed pilot, and from this experience, I would estimate the speed of these USOs at 80 to 100 kts. They moved from left to right from the West Maui Mountains (west to east) along the coastline and continued out to sea. They were observed for about 6-9 seconds on a cliff overlooking Paia Bay. It was aprox. [sic – approx.] 9 p.m., and the USOs were observed as they moved 2 or 3 miles underwater. They had a bright green glow and held formation throughout the event. All of us were speechless; we all saw it. We looked at each other and someone said, “Did you [see] what I saw?”  Holy s—t!!!

            I just wondered if anyone else reported this incident. I will never forget it and all 15 of us confirmed what we saw there. I’d sure like to hear from you about this event.


Thank you,

Hello [witness’s name],

I checked two databases that I know about (one has 200,000 reports), but neither came up with anything for 1974 in Hawaii. This is not unusual as many people do not report or even know where to report a sighting.

            Your case is interesting, but I'm a little fuzzy on one detail. I assume they were totally underwater the entire time. There are many cases like this if so. They can be read on my website at: http://www.waterufo.net/underwatersolidlights.php “Underwater Solid Lights."

            In one of these cases, the witness gave me a graphic of the green color as close as "paint" would allow. This case can be read at: http://www.waterufo.net/item.php?id=1167

            Did you know any of the names of the 14 folks that you mentioned?

            You said that you're a licensed pilot. Were you military and/or commercial or just a private pilot?

            Regarding the date, do you remember the month or season in 1974? Any detail you can add helps with understanding the whole UFO picture.


Best wishes,

Carl Feindt

Hi Carl,

            Thank you for getting back to me. I'm not in contact with any of the 14 people who witnessed this. The color was a solid green/blue and the objects were underwater throughout the event, traveling a lot faster than man-made technology could have produced. I for one am a believer. I saw them and they're here. Stealthy little bastards though, and what are they doing here?

            I will contact the CO [Colorado] chapter [of MUFON] and make a report, even though it was a long time ago. Thanks again. It's good to know that you're working on this.

Regards, [witness’s name]
