Late on the evening
of Apr. 2, 1956, Capt. J. G. Nettleship of the S.S. Valletia, sailing
near Mena al Ahmadi in the Persian Gulf, saw, with his chief and officers,
pulsations of light surround his ship. They came in as distinct waves, but
without definite or continuous direction. The Valletia was in 280 feet of water
when its echo-meter graph began to reflect two distinct underwater traces,
each separated by 25 feet. Simultaneously,
the surface of the sea became agitated as though a powerful object was
maneuvering just under the surface. Gradually the graph tracing
tapered to a single sounding as the phenomenon ended.
The ship's officers
suggested the disturbance was caused by large shoals of closely-packed, small
fish, churning the sea near the surface. But, like others before them, they
offered no explanation for the light waves, nor did they suspect a
relationship with the water's disturbance.
Were they related?
Did one cause the other?
As data continues
to mount, are we coming closer to solving the enigma of the Wheels of Poseidon—and,
perhaps the intelligence behind them?
