       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?
