Full Description & Details
I was 21 yr/ old sailor working as a signalman 3rd class aboard the destroyer which put me as high on the superstructure as one can be without being up the mast head.
This thing was noted all of a sudden off the port bow approx. 5deg and approx 30 degrees above the horizon. Distance unknown. All that were on the bridge at the time saw this object which looked some what like a flouresant
light shape like a funny papers cigar ( sharp on both ends ) bulging in center. The object stay in this position some 5 minutes and without any other movement went off to the right of our position and some what down the ships port side slightly in a climb and at unbelievable speed. Left all who saw it with the question of what it was. No further incidence nor did the ship encounter any electrical failure or ill effects. This is a true event of which I wish i had not have witnessed, but true all the same
