|White object appeared at a start of a target shooting in the Pacific.
This is a picture taken aboard a U.S. Navy warship and the big orange cube is a practice target to be thrown out to the sea. Our location is in the middle of the Pacific Ocean between the Philippines and Japan. If you will observe real close on the 9 o'clock position of the orange cube you will notice a white object shaped like an inverted space shuttle or a cross like appearance just above the blue waters.
What makes this picture very legitimate and makes this object really interesting, is that this evolution that we are about to do is weapons testing and target shooting using all the armaments of the ship. There is no way on earth that any kind of sea vessel will be any near our ship. We are thousands of miles away from the nearest land and theres no way a target shooting will commence if theres any ship near us or worse be visible to the naked eye.
I just discovered this object after developing it but was not there during the actual shot. It cannot be cloud because it is too white and too define and it is so near the surface of the water. And also it cannont be a whale's tail for it is so white and we could have easily saw it and would not commence firing.
((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the event is approximate. The outline of the white object suggests to us that the object is a seagull. PD))
