Go Back Report # 1593


Other Mysteries of the Deep?

   … “Nearly three-quarters of the surface of our planet is covered with water; but, despite airplanes now flying over the oceans, and boating going on all about, we have only a minute portion of this vast aqueous area under regular surveillance.    
   “Have we been ignoring the mountain of evidence that something is happening down there?”    
   For years that “mountain of evidence” has been slowly building. In late 1954, for example, the Navy Hydrographic Office reported that an American fuel tanker, Dynafuel, watched an eerie cloud of smoke rising from the waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
   Upon closer examination, “the smoke appeared to come from under water and resembled smoke from bombs dropped during target practice,” the ship’s master said. “It lasted only ten minutes.”          
   There was no official explanation, even though the NHO conducted a search of the area for downed aircraft or missing ships.
