|Philippine naval base sighting of a ufo/uso with binoculars in hand
I was in the Navy and stationed at Cubi Point Naval Air Station. I worked at Runway Support and was out on the flight line with my binoculars and flare gun for a 4 hour shift at midnight.
It was approx. 2 am when I saw what I thought was an aircraft coming in over the mountain top. I had a radio that I then called the air tower with and no aircraft was coming in. I told the tower what direction I was looking in and that was the last correspondence I had with him.
The craft was stationary and darted to the right very quickly and then dropped down to the bay and vanished. I never saw it fly away in any direction. It went right above the water. I never saw any lights until I no longer saw the aircraft. When it was out of sight I could see a brightness coming from the bay lighting the end of the runway. I drove to the end of the runway and looked into the bay as the light started to dim and disappear.
I talked to my commander the following day about what I saw and he said that they test all kind of things here but he usually has knowledge of the opporation before it takes place and he had not been notified.
