Go Back Report # 97


       Almost two years later, on Aug. 23, 1925, the German passenger liner Preussen was steaming through the area west of where the Omar1 had encountered the brilliant bubble patches. An officer of the watch described what he saw:      

       "From right next to the ship and up to the limit of vision, luminous balls rose from the lower strata of the ocean. Their distances from each other varied from 12 to 100 feet. The time interval between appearances varied between 20 and 30 seconds. The balls seemed to rise with a speed of about half a yard per second and had an estimated diameter of six inches. Just below the surface they expanded to a diameter of about half a yard. When reaching the surface [they] expanded and flattened. It looked as if they were bursting. The area occupied by such a phantom body was ellipsoid in shape with a major axis of 6 to 10 feet. The larger ones retained their intense silvery-greenish luminosity with a shivering motion until we lost sight of them."
