A LUMINOUS BALL CAME OUT OF THE WATER       

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."           

(Translator's note: this seems to be a summary of the actual article. It lacked quotes, which were added above in the most likely places, baserd on the use of the first person at one point.)
