Extract from a letter from Mr. Douglas Carnegie,
Blackheath, England. Date sometime in 1906—
last voyage we witnessed a weird and most extraordinary electric
display." In the Gulf of Oman, he saw a bank of apparently quiescent phosphorescence:
but, when within twenty yards of it, "shafts of brilliant light came sweeping across the
ship's bows at a prodigious speed, which might be put down as anything between
60 and 200 miles an hour. These light bars were about 20 feet apart and most
regular." As to phosphorescence--"I collected a bucketful of
water and examined it under the microscope, but could not detect anything
abnormal." That the shafts of light came up from something beneath the
surface---"They first struck us on our broadside, and I noticed that an
intervening ship had no effect on the light beams: they started away from the
lee side of the ship, just as if they had traveled right through it.”
The Gulf of
Oman is at the entrance to the Persian Gulf.
