       On November 30, 1974, dozens of crewmen aboard the U.S. Navy destroyer Blackburn (DD-756) in the Indian Ocean observed three round, luminescent objects flying in orbit above the ship, as if spying on it. The objects were tracked by the destroyer's radar. Although reports differ, the captain apparently sounded General Quarters and prepared for possible hostile action. Then, 17 minutes after the round objects had first appeared, all three dived into the ocean and vanished in a geyser of spray. Their movements were detected on sonar after they submerged.
