Place: Fajardo, P.R.
a Rio Piedras executive and an enthusiastic sports
fisherman, was on his boat off the shore of Palominos Isle in Fajardo cutting bait with a fellow fisherman when both
men became aware that the sea
off the sailboat’s stern was bubbling and heaving. This previously
unseen phenomenon startled the onlookers, who were completely blown away by
what transpired seconds later.
A strange object erupted from the water. It took
to the air and hung motionless to the left of Cardés
sailboat, dripping water off its sides. Cardé urged
his companion to take a photo of the object, but when he did so, the object
zoomed skyward in a northeasterly direction. Upon developing the roll of
film, it transpired that they had indeed captured a blurry image of the saucer-shaped
craft against the clouds of a Caribbean dawn.
