Go Back Report # 98


       On the night of Apr. 15, 1956, Capt. N. Thompson of the S.S. Warkworth was 64 miles north of Cape Verde, sailing for Monrovia when, for 20 minutes, he observed circular, phosphorescent patches on the water. They were as large as three feet in diameter. They blinked on and off within a radius of 200 feet all around his ship. Oddly, the patches flashed only outside the arc of the vessel's lights; inside the lighted area, they could not be seen.

       Similar sightings were made by ships' masters in the Persian Gulf and the South Pacific and are considered by investigators to be part of the rare, “general” category of sea luminescence.
