Go Back Report # 950


Gulf of Oman, near Iran - 1978 or 1979, 11:00 P.M. to 2:30 AM.

The crew of the U.S.S. Nimitz spotted a glowing object about 1500 yards to starboard. It was a cigar-shaped UFO with two portholes just above the water's surface.

Photography was attempted, and failed. The object was not picked up on ship's radar. Several members watched the object for several hours through binoculars. Commanding officers informed those who witnessed the object that they were not to talk about it.
