in Puerto Rico by Sebastian Robiou
Another interesting incident in Puerto Rico took
place on August 18, 1968, at 2:30 a.m. at Ramey
AFB, and involves Sgt. Thomas Carulli, who signed a statement for APRO. The statement,
which was obtained through APRO Field Investigator John R. Artie, an Air
Force member now stationed at Beale AFB in California, goes as follows:
August 18, 1968, at approximately 2:30 a.m., off Borinquen Beach,
Ramey AFB, Puerto
Rico, fifteen other security policemen and myself observed what
was believed to be known as an unidentified flying object.
"Visibility was unlimited. The
UFO seemed to be rising
from the ocean but when first seen it was appearing to be at a 45-degree angle
above the surface and rising. While also rising
it seemed to yaw to its sides emitting a very bright, almost florescent light
which was similar to that of an unblinking strobe light.
[as printed-CF] ward from within its
structures. The reason why it seemed this way was because there appeared to
be struts or bars or (you could say) window panes. These struts were verticle (sic) and there were about six of them. They
reminded me of the crown on the Statue of Liberty but their greatest width
seemed to be in their center.
"When it reached its zenith,
which in itself appeared to be no more than 1500 ft. off the ground, it
lingered there for a few minutes; all the while it emitted thin light which
lit up the whole area which before was in complete darkness.
"It was circular or sphere-like,
more like if you held only your fingertips and your wrists together not
letting the palms of your hands touch, in fact, if you would do this with your
hands and turn your hands to your face with the fingers at eye level this is
what the UFO most nearly looked like.
"Its size was close to a
half-dollar at arm's length. It emitted no sound. Lights around us
didn't dim either. While in its zenith the UFO seemed to pulsate and fluxed
from side to side or wobbled. Then another orb of light came from it.
"This was a light about the size
of a dime held at arm's length. It stayed by the side of the first UFO, then
it too fluxed or wobbled and shot straight upwards until it was nearly
invisible. Then it just seemed to hang there almost indistinguishable
from the other stars. After two or three more minutes passed, the first UFO
wobbled, turned on its side and darted upwards and outwards in a
north-north-westerly direction until it disappeared.
"This whole spectacular
phenomenon took about 12-17 minutes in its entirety."
