Go Back Report # 358

02-23-1967

 

    Four people saw a strange thing happen out to sea from the Patawolonga [sic- Patawalonga], at Glenelg, around 10.15 pm, on February 23, 1967. A red-orange, triangular-shaped object rose out of the sea and then sank in again, taking about five minutes to do so. They described it as an approaching ship on fire, but with no flickering flames. The object appeared on the horizon and did not seem to move around—only up and down.
