somthing came out of the ocean and flew up with a boom, out of sight in seconds

3 buddies and I went fishing on a 42 ft.boat about 80 miles s.w. mcdill a.f.b. we fished all day and around midnight we saw a lil storm north west of us going south, lightning was realy cool, flashed greenish color on the ocean and some wind but nothing we havent seen before.but we was on gaurd in case the storm got worse.now around 2:00 am the storm got a lil closer and we where all watching it. a lil later evey thing on the boat went dead,radio,fish finder ,sonar ,lights,even our battery powered flash lights whitch was weird cause they where battery powered.cell phones where also dead.we noticed the ocean started to rummble a lil bit, but it was not thunder the water began to vibrate a lil,flash of lighning showed up greenish on the ocean, we didnt know what to think we was talking about going in to shore rather than stay till day break.a lil later may be 30 mins. we saw a greenish glow in the ocean it was pretty big ,a buddy joked it was a sub.well then s! omething came out of the ocean with a greenish glow,rippleing the water,then hovering over the ocean about a mile or two away from our boat for about 10 mins.it must have been 3-4 times the size of our boat or bigger.it was glowing greenish.then it went west out to sea and then straight up, a flash , and gone. then a boom. it seemed to turn to check us out before leaving the area.when the event was over we started the boat and everything came back on. so we headed back to shore.half way back the sun started to rise.we looked at the time and we lost about 4-5 hours out on the ocean.it should not have been sun up yet.we didnt know what to think but we was alright and we had our fish we caught that day still on ice. we talked about what we saw and came to say ,that it was a ufo. not a sub, plane, ship ,boat, ect. not millitary, that i know of.you may email me if you like
