- After viewing your website (excellent site), I came across
your Military sightings section. I do have 3 personal sighting experiences
of my own.
- Two while I was on duty in the U.S. Coast Guard and one,
while growing up living within a mile of a major weapons storage facility
(NWS Earle) in New Jersey.
- The two sightings and one possible that took place while
on active duty took place in 1969 and 1970. The first one was while my
ship was on Ocean Station Victor (approximately 34.0 N by 165 E) in the
western pacific. The second (possible) took place around Con Son island
in the Gulf of Siam right off of the coast of Vietnam. The last sighting
(daylight visual) took place while steaming from Guam back to Oahu approximately
200 miles from Eniwetok atoll
- (approximately 17.0 N by 167.0 E). The first sighting
was visual and radar with 3 objects being tracked at speeds of between
3200 and 3600 mph. This sighting I believe was duly reported via prescribed
SOP. The other two were not
- The sighting that took place around 1959 near the Naval
Weapons Station was a daylight sphere (silver with red and white random
flashing lights randomly placed surrounding, but not attached to the object.
It was flying at slow speed over the Navy road and railroad and on a course
coming from the Navy pier several miles away on the Raritan Bay (NYC harbor).
Its course would take it directly to the secure WSA on the base proper
(Colts Neck). This sighting never made any local papers or reports as
near as I could tell.
- The possible sighting was actually right off of the coast
of Vietnam and took place while holding swim call. An object of approximately
90 go 100' long and approximately 30' wide sailed silently underneath of
my while at anchor. It was observed by approximately 10 people who were
on anchor and guard duty from the port bridge wing (44 feet above the water
line). The object was heading from starboard to port under the rear third
of the ship and directly under the men who were swimming off of the fantail.
My ship was the CGC Mellon (WHEC 717).
- Thank you to the witness for the very interesting reports.
- HBCC UFO Research Note: I am sure there are other U.S.
Coast Guard Serviceman who are still serving or are out of the service
who have been witness to some unusual events while out at sea. I would
be interested in hearing from these folks.
