TA 1979-068


Ten people were sitting around a campfire when they noticed a bright orange light above sea-level which was hovering for approximately ten minutes. While in this position, there was a bright red reflection coming off the water underneath the object. The object suddenly manouvered [sic- manoeuvred] closer to the coast, tilting at an angle and disappearing into the ocean. When first seen, the object was cigar shaped, then changing to a saucer shape as it angled to dive into the sea.
