MUFON witness report (unedited): On Friday July 18, 2008, at about 10:30 pm, a co-worker and I were taking a 15 minute break on the stern of the SS HORIZON'S EDGE BOSTON, a casino cruise ship and company I was employed for at the time out of Lynn, Ma. We were drifting on the outer edge of the Stellwagen Bank Marine Sanctuary during casino hours. As we started to make our way back inside the vessel to return to work, we heard a loud "whooshing" sound from about 10 to 15 degrees off the port-bow. This is not an uncommon occurrence as waves continually hit the bow; especially during inclement weather. But we knew right away the sound was a bit "off". We hurried to the port side of the stern and saw what seemed to be a spectral, greenish, faint-glowing, disc shaped object (at best estimate, about 50 to 100 feet in diameter and about 500 feet out) come clear out of the water and hover for what seemed to be 45 seconds or so. We both confirmed with each other, that we could "feel" or somewhat "sense" heat coming from the object...(and subsequently would both later suffer from unusual yet uneventful bouts of dehydration and cold-like symptoms regardless of how the amount of fluids we drank.) The object then rose sharply to about 1000 feet and shot away, aft and ascending, until we couldn't see it anymore... that particular movement of the object took less than 10 seconds... there was absolutely no sound of any kind and the erratic movements it made as it came out of the water, was as if someone were hoisting this thing up on the end of a chain and it swayed a bit back and forth. I have never seen anything like it before or since. Naturally, I have never mentioned this incident to anyone for fear of any social reprisal... and we have subsequently, stopped speaking to each other all together. I have only mentioned it here, and will probably never mention it again. I just had to tell someone.
NOTE: OK...this is weird. The above report was filed today...though, I talked to a man last night who mentioned a similar incident on the SAME ship a year before. I first thought that this was the same person filing a report using a pseudo self-description but after going back over the details from the telephone conversation I realized that it was a different sighting. As well, this witness originally contacted me in reference to a cryptid sighting and mentioned this only after I had asked if he had witnessed other paranormal experiences. Strange....Lon
