Location: Ponca, OK

Shape: Light

Duration: 30 seconds


Midday; above water appearing to land and then submerge in the water; no noise; approximate 3 ft. in size


Sighted halo-type, greenish, sherical [sic-spherical] light of pulsing character, mainly green, some yellow, and slight reddish tint also… above the water on Kaw Lake and no sound. It hovered then disappeared … whitin [sic-within] about 100 ft. of our sailboat during midday full sun. We both were kind of mesmerized at the actual sight of whatever it was and could not make the shape or density of it, yet it appeared to be no larger than 3 ft. in diameter ... no noise at all and we both looked at each other kind of stunned ... not believing what we had seen sorta [sic-sort of] way…. It looked as if it landed on the lake then submerged; not a noticeable splash. When asking my buddy if he [had] seen it … well he did yet was unsure of what we [sic-he] [had] seen just as I. Still no explanation of it all as if it was some sort of dream, but we both had the same dream… go figure… paranormal for sure and thought you might have heard of similar incidents …
