UFO Sighting Report - USA

1959/1960 : Mobile Bay, Mobile, Alabama


Coast Guard Sighting Of A Craft Hovering Above The Boat With Blinding Light

Date: 1959 or 1960
Time: Evening (?)

I want to pass this story along to you that my sister told me. Her best guess on the year was 1959 or 1960. My father was chief engineer at WALA TV in Mobile, Alabama for 16 years. Every day he would take lunch at a location next to the TV station known as the Princess House. One day while having lunch one of his friends from the Coast Guard told of a sighting that they had the night before. It seems they were out in Mobile Bay doing their usual duties when a craft appeared above the boat with blinding light and hovered for some time. After which the craft shot off. He stated that it scared the crap out of them. He also stated that the craft made no noise at all. This is all my sister remembers of the story. Maybe someone out there knows more.

Thank you to the gentleman for relating this sighting to me.
