|On August 17th were were on a Alaskan cruise aboard the Sun Princess on a north easterly course into Perry Passage and Wells Passage. At 03:30 I awoke and walked out to the deck of our cabin a spotted some glowing objects in the distance. They seem to be moving strangly like a flock of birds being disturbed. Then breaking off in several groups. Some coming toward our ship and nearly directly over head. They glowed very brightly. I was able to take a picture of them. The first showed that the were round or oval shape. They broke off quickly as I took the second picture and only got three of them again having the same shape.
The following I sent a mesage to officer on deck that night and never recieved an answer. However I did meet the captain of the ship and mentioned what I had seen and never heard from him either. Aboard the ship were several naturalist describing the area daily. Questioning them the seemed to think perhaps it was a flock of sea guls. But could not explain why the were glowing. I am stil confused as what we did see. Would be glad to answere any further questions you may have.
