US Marine Witnesses USO
Thanks To John Colaw
Note: This is a very interesting story not about a UFO, but a USO -
Unidentified Submerged Object. Very intriguing.
I was among a dozen witnesses who observed a huge USO in 1977, in the Bermuda
triangle in the Caribbean. We were part of a large invasion fleet traveling
on a secret mission to invade Panama to take control of the canal for
President Carter. The ship was the USS
Ponce, an LPD. It cargoed tanks, Mike boats,
helicopters and marine landing parties which included myself. We were running
completely dark, with no lights on deck whatsoever. There was no moon, but it
was clear and you could see a little bit by starlight once your eyes
adjusted. We were watching the phosphorescent glow that trailed the edge of
ship, caused by certain plankton that light up when disturbed. This effect
flickered like low flame, and did not extend far behind the ship before the
glow dimmed out. Like an underwater magnetic field, dancing here and there
while we watched it.
Then we saw a large blue glow
approaching our ship underwater from the stern. As it caught up to us, and
began passing underneath, we sat on the fantail and looked right down at it.
It was much wider than our ship, and it was pulsing almost like the way embers flicker. It was
brighter and a deeper hue than the flickering plankton. My first thought was
that maybe it was a submarine, disturbing plankton much like our ship did.
Except the plankton effect seems to occur in the trailing edge and wake, not
over such a large surface area.
else suggested maybe it was a whale, or a gigantic glowing squid. But one
thing for sure, we were all dumbfounded as it passed the ship and continued
off to a tangent to our own direction until we lost it in the tossing and the
waves. The seas were not very high, and the extreme darkness enhanced the
experience. It was sort
of oval in shape, but being underwater one could not see a definite shape,
except that is was about as wide as it was long and that our ship's length
was about the size of its diameter.
then occurred to me that it very well be an
underwater UFO. A submarine would leave a much more narrow profile, being
longer than wide, as would a whale or squid. It did not emerge from the

Voss for permission to post this case to this site.
