The 18th of September, 1961:
Fourth Officer G. Gendall of the vessel Queensland Star, in the Indian Ocean,
reported sighting a UFO through a cloud formation. White in color, it
vanished into the clouds and then reappeared, dropping toward the sea. The object apparently
entered the sea as the water in the surrounding area grew intensely bright
where the object had fallen. Particles of white matter continued to
fall to the sea after the object had disappeared, and the sky and the
water in the immediate vicinity were illuminated for several minutes.
