Two boys studying in Bup1 observed an object that emerged from the water on the night of Sunday, February 8. According to their statements they suddenly saw how a light was coming up from the depths of the sea about 300 or 400 meters (1000-1300 feet) from the beach, (In the area of Critina island,* province of Huelva.) "This light was getting brighter and brighter, which made us think of a submarine, but: suddenly it came out of the water and stayed still at a height of about 500 meters (1600 feet), disappearing without a trace soon after."
