On the 27th of September,
1966, two divers from the Naval Ordnance
Laboratory Test Facility accompanied Martin Meylach,
an amateur treasure hunter, who had discovered a rocket-like object in 40
feet of water off the coast of Miami, Fla. He had found it while searching
for sunken Spanish treasure with a magnetometer four miles offshore and
reported it to Homestead AFB, which turned the matter over to the Navy.
Officials at Homestead said they had no idea where the mechanism came from
and discounted theories that it was some sort of missile dropped by craft
from a nearby base.
