Go Back Report # 1626

August 13, 1974                    Laconia, New Hampshire     
At 9:24 PM, "Sightings were [re]ported by two inspectors of the Division of Safety Services (Marine Patrol)over Paugus Bay, Lake Winnipesaukee. The first sighting was reported off Bear Island, a bright colored object seemed to be hovering over him. He said it was larger than any star and it left at a rapid rate of speed towards the Glendale and Alton area. He couldn't tell how far away the object was and when it did leave, it moved at a 45-degree angle at a far greater speed than an airplane or a satellite. No trail was observed behind the object, as there would have been behind a meteor. The inspector waited for fifteen minutes and saw three or four objects heading in a northeast direction towards Melvin Village. Another boat was radioed and both met near Long Island where they saw another object headed west. The object was very large and cast a multicolored glow but was moving slower than the first. None of them had any sound. The inspectors waited near Sandy Island and observed still another object in the vicinity of the Big Dipper. They turned on the flashing light on their boats and said they thought the object appeared to change course and changed course again when the lights were shut off."
