Go Back Report # 58


       One manifestation was observed from the S.S. Somersetshire on Aug. 25, 1925. It was about 150 miles south of present-day Oman when the second officer, P. Hawkins, observed:           

       "A white line [which] seemed to be coming toward the ship at a tremendous speed from the east, [and] which had the appearance of breakers. Very shortly after, the whole sea was quite white, with now and again circular, streaky, black patches, and the whole surrounding area was brilliantly lit up."

       Hawkins added this comment which was later found to be a singular condition in many of the luminous appearances:    

       "During this time (9:20 p.m. until 10:40 p.m.) the atmospheric conditions were extraordinary. No sound was heard, not even the wind or the breaking of the sea. No swell was visible and one vessel, which had previously been rolling heavily, had practically no movement. In fact, one could almost have been in dock."      

       It is interesting to note that this "unnatural" silence and motion has also been reported in many close range UFO sightings.
