Shape: Unknown
Duration:one minute
The object made no sound, had colorful lights and moved in a zig zag motion 1000 times faster than the speed of light.

My ship (USS Comet De Grasse) just finished her UNATAS cruise and were in Puerto Rico for fuel. We pulled out in the evening and headed to Norfolk Va. I was standing Sound and Security watch and was on the fantail talking to the deck seaman on watch. It was almost midnight and we were just bs-ing and all of the sudden this aircraft lite up in the sky. It did not come from anywhere. It must have been just hovering over the ocean waiting for the ship to pass and than it lite up all its lights and was just floating there. It had different color lights on it, red, blue, white. There was no sound or smoke coming from it. It wasn't far from the ship but it was behind us so I told the deck seaman to call up to the bridge and ask if they could see anything on their radar. The bridge said they could not see any aircraft. Than all of the sudden this aircraft took off light a bolt of lighting. It did not just go up straight. It was zig zagging but it looked like it traveled over a thousand miles in just a split second. Both of us just shook our heads and said to one another, "I didn't see anything, did you. I never believed in UFO's until than. I highly doubt that the USGovernment has a top secret flying machine that doesn't make any noise, and flys 1000 times faster than the speed of light.
