saw fast moving blip on the radar scope thin went outside and saw it again.

Wile I was stationed at the Navel station Bermuda as an air traffic controler on the mid shift I and one other controler observed a verry fast moving blip on our 150 mi. radious radar screen.This rader screen is used for overhead and center to center hand offs too and fromus and other centers.This conserned us because of the potential mid air accidents,we delt with both civilian and military aircraft.At about an hour into my shift I observed this blip moving extreamly fast.It traveled about 25 to 35 mi. per sweep of the radar.I notised it at the 150 mi limit watched it for two sweeps when I told my supervisor he observed it for one sweep then told me to go outside to see if I could see any thing.I saw it move from the east to the west for an instant then turn to the south instantly and continue south untill it went out of sight.When I went back inside the radar room my supervisor confermed the same thing.At this point I was told not to say anything ,that it just did't happen.

((NUFORC Note: Date and time are approximate. I met this individual at a highway rest stop, and he was intrigued by the license plate number on my automobile, "UFOCNTR." He began describing a sighting he had experienced in Bermuda, while working as a military air traffic controller. We were impressed with his apparent sincerity, and with his ability to recount the incident in detail. PD))
