|U.S. NAVY SIGHTING FROM THE U.S.S KITTYHAWK NEAR GUAM IN THE PACIFIC OCEAN. UNIDENTIFIED UNDERWATER OBJECT.
My sighting was aboard the USS KITTYHAWK. This aircraft carrier is stationed in Yokosuka, Japan.
I am in the U.S. Navy and my job is a jet mechanic. The lights were seen by 4 of my fellow mechanics.
We were on another deployment in south east Asia. I believe we were in the Phillipine sea or Pacific ocean. We were not to far out of Guam.
We where on the fantail which is the aft part of a ship. We often go back there to smoke and just look at the churning water from the props.
While checking out the water which at the time was some big seas. We all noticed some lights just under the surface of the starboard props. They lit up the whole surface of the ocean. The lights came up from behind the ship like 50 feet behind. The lights looked as though they were just under the surface. The lights caught up with the ship and disappeared under the ship. It was really brief like 30 or 40 seconds. They where orange to reddish colored lights.
I have been in the Navy for almost 7 years and never seen anything like it since. We know what is around us when we are out there. I mean in the sky or in the sea but this sighting has stuck with me.
