Sighting Report

Occurred: 9/21/1988 03:00 (Entered as: 09/21/1988 3:00)

Reported: 3/15/2005 9:41:49 A.M. 09:41

Posted: 5/11/2005.

Location: Atlantic Ocean (middle)

Shape: Fireball

Duration: 15 seconds 

The light clearly lit up the bow of the vessel, where no light should have been, in the middle of the Atlantic.           

We were crossing the Atlantic Ocean in a Tidewater boat, M/V Tough Tide about 100 miles north of the equator. I had the midnight to four watch.         

With every light turned off including radar, I was turned towords (sic) the after part of the boat to turn over the tape cossette (sic) in the machine. All of a sudden the whole bow was lit up, as bright as day, I turned around to see the light and it emediatly (sic) took off to the north and headed to a cloud. The light veered around the cloud and disappeared (sic).           

The object made absolutly (sic) no sound, and manouvered (sic) like nothing of this earth.  

I am a pilot and I was astounded by the quickness of the craft and the intensity of the light. I can still picture this as if it happened yesterday. I made log entries after the occurance (sic) and informed the captain. He told me it was a bird, I told him I didn't know what it was, but I know it wasn't a bird.
