called upon a russian fishing boat,it had strange encrusted object in nets ,about 15 feet in diam.The poor chaps were terrified they thought it was a mine ,they had it in there nets for about five hours we off course gave them assistance and assured them it was not a mine.Of course we were curious what this object was it was so easy to move for its size even in the nets,we got a couple of hammers and started to chip at the crustations on the surface of the sphere there was three inches of crustation before we hit its surface it was strange almost soft then without warning it started to glow from the four inch gap we made on its surface about twenty seconds later the power from both boats drained almost together there was panic for a few seconds but bryan who was with me in the nets decided to cover the gap we made in the object with his coat it stoped the noise it was making strait away and the boats power came back a few minutes later, the object was sealed where we took off the crustation and put back in the sea and tagged dont no what it is except its old and not man made and proberbly best left alone

((NUFORC Note: We have inquired whether any official record of the alleged event was made by the witness or his coworker. As a former scientific observer aboard Soviet fishing vessels, I know how much paperwork is generated in that environment, and an official observer would certainly have recorded the event in his/her records. A photo of the object would have been taken, as well. We will wait for a response, and for further evidence, which supports the assertion above. Frankly, we are going to have to see evidence on this one in order to believe it at face value. PD))
