Go Back Report # 855


Date:   July 6, 1990

Time:    05:30 hrs.

Place:   Fajardo, P.R.   

       Guillermo Cardé, 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.
