Another bizarre incident occurred on October 24, 1989, recorded in a report made by a sailor aboard the naval submarine USS Memphis (SSN-698), which was operating in Cape Canaveral, Florida.
At the time, they were on a special mission to protect the Space Program, patrolling about 150 miles off the coast of Florida, when the submarine developed a series of mechanical problems.
Several electronic devices began to malfunction. Communications were completely down, tanks were exploding uncontrollably, navigation was lost, and even the reactor controls were malfunctioning. They surfaced and switched to diesel engines because the situation was extremely dangerous.
“It was raining and the whole sky was neon red. I saw a large inverted V-shaped UFO on the port side.
The executive officer told me to sit tight and that he would speak to the captain. In a minute the captain appeared on the tower and asked me the distance to the craft. The laser range finder determined that the closest point was 200 meters and the farthest point was 1,000 meters from the port. The UFO was not perpendicular to our ship, but at an angle of about 45′
This huge vessel was over 800 meters in diameter. The UFO made a half circle around our ship, then passed over the stern, causing our electronic systems to go crazy. I had permanent damage to my communications and sonar camera. As the UFO flew over the stern, I could see the rain stop under its red glow. The water seemed to rise almost to the feet as the UFO passed silently by.
When the UFO finished its swing over the stern, it stopped — the sky got brighter and the UFO just moved at tremendous speed, disappearing in 15 seconds. When the UFO left, our boat was back to normal except for the radio and sonar. We did a quick system check and the captain ordered us to return to reactor power and begin.”
He goes on to say that when they arrived at the port, their superiors took them and placed them in “protective custody.” They were presented with the “official story” and warned that they could not talk about what they observed in that tense situation.
“I arrived at the port in about 7 hours, where I was taken into ‘protective custody.’ Two enlisted men and I agreed that we had seen a real UFO. I was the one shooting with a laser rangefinder, so I was the only one who had his exact dimensions.
I captured that ship while it was floating and got solid readings. I was held for about three hours when an Air Force officer arrived and gave us a search line about an exploding weather satellite. The Navy then transferred almost all of the crew to new assignments. This transfer also included the captain, the executive officer, and the entire crew. They were separated, which rarely happens unless one of them gets a promotion or a new command, neither of which happened.
All these incidents seem to be kept confidential, leading to an unsettling atmosphere. In each of these examples, what was happening? Is there a presence of these mother UFOs hovering over the oceans of our world? What message are they trying to convey through these physics-based effects? It is impossible to determine for sure, and this is a fascinating area of the UFO phenomenon.
