Go Back Report # 1270



Atlantic Ocean, 1974 [reported January 2006]    

     I was watching Dr. Kitei1 this morning on a program on television and she was discussing the Phoenix Lights. I have been telling the same story to my family and friends for years, but had never heard anyone that had ever seen the same thing that I had in 1974. I was a signalman in the U.S. Navy and we were about 300 miles into the Atlantic on our way to Europe when late at night we saw three orange orbs off of our port bow. We were moving about fifteen knots, and the orange orbs stayed perfectly with us for about 30 minutes and then disappeared, only to reappear again later that evening. I ran down to the radar room and asked the radarmen if they had anything on radar and they did not. The radarmen came out and observed the same thing, but they never saw anything on the radar. The lieutenant on deck at the time observed it, too. When you're at sea at night, it is extremely dark so they glowed quite brightly, but it was difficult to judge the distance. They made no sound at all and they seemed to stay exactly with the ship, like they were observing us, and we never saw them again. Today was the first time I had ever heard anyone tell the same story.
