Go Back Report # 240


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.
