Go Back Report # 871


Businessmen's sighting

       Now a very interesting case. What makes it interesting is not only the size of the alleged UFO, which was said to had been kilometers in diameter; but also that all witnesses are Turkey's well-known businessmen!    

UFO over yachts.

       On Sept. 17, 1985, a group of businessmen were sailing in their yachts on the Bosphorus in Istanbul. According to the witnesses' testimony, at 3:30 AM they saw a huge set of lights approaching them.

       It hovered over them, and everywhere was like daylight (see drawing above). They said that the object was emitting a great deal of heat. The yachtsmen tried to talk to each other on the radio, but even though they tried 16 different channels, the radios just wouldn't work.

       The whole incident lasted about five minutes, then the object flew away. They said that even after it went away, the heat remained for awhile. The observers were all shocked and frightened.

       When their radios started to work again they contacted the coast guard radio, and learned that the coast guard also saw the same thing. But it could never be identified.
