Sleeping on a boat on Spanish Cay. When I woke up, and look[ed] out of the south side stateroom to see a white ball of light dipping in & out of the sea...


When I findly [sic-finally] woke up all the way, I realized that what I was seeing was not of this world.... I was very shock[ed] to realize that outside of the skiper [sic-skipper] sleeping down below that I was the only person seeing this thing. But was I? Across the Grand Bahama Straits from Spanish Cay is one of the most populated islands, called Cooper’s Town. That is where you can see things in [the] night sky unlike anything I"v [sic-I’ve] seen before. It all starts [sic-started] the frist [sic-first] time I whent [sic-went] to the islands. The frist [sic-first] nite [sic] I look up in the sky and all you see are small lights doing crazy things in the sky like zig-zaging [sic], not a satalite [sic], and spyrows [sic-spirals]. All I know is what I seen [sic-saw] was a very large, very white light dipping in & out of the ocean on Devils nite [sic] of 1998.For the longies [sic longest] time I whached [sic-watched] as the light would dipp [sic] into [the] sea and come out with a trail of water leading [sic-following] behind it....
