‘Fiery Finger’ Seen
fiery finger which streaked across ocean skies near Newport and Laguna last night plunged
into the sea and caused a wide-spread search by a Coast Guard cutter and
three Marine helicopters.
The unidentified flying object appeared
shortly after dark, setting off a series of telephone calls to Laguna Beach
police. Residents placed the time of the sighting at 5:45 p.m. Marine Corps
officials said the burning object was about the size of an airplane and was
seen by coastal residents to
plunge into the ocean causing the ocean to boil and steam to erupt at the
point of impact.
