ON OR ABOUT SEPTEMBER 1994, WHILE STANDING WATCH ON BOARD THE U.S.S. NORMANDY GC60 (U.S. NAVAL WARSHIP) AT THE TIME STATION IN SATIN ISLAND ((sic. Staten Island)) NEW YORK. MY RANK BOATSWAINS MATE 3RD CLASS I WAS STANDING PORT LOOK OUT AND WE WHERE APPROXIMATELY 50 TO 75 MILES OFF NEW YORK HARBOR I NOTICED AND REPORTED TO THE BRIDGE RADAR WATCH 5 LIGHT THAT LOOKED LIKE STARS MOVING UP AND DOWN ON LIGHT AT A TIME TO MY VIEW THESE LIGHT WHERE OFF ON THE HORIZON AND THERE WAS VARY LITTLE IF NO CLOUDS IN THE SKY WITH NO MOON. THE RADAR OP REPORTED BACK THERE WAS NOTHING ON THE SCREEN OTHER THEN AIRCRAFT TAKING OFF FROM THE 3 MAJOR AIRPORTS IN THE AREA OF THE CITY. OUR SHIP SPEED WAS ONLY 2 TO 5 KNOTS AND WE WHERE OPERATING IN A SMALL BOX PASSING TIME TILL WE MOORED AT 0900. I KNOW FOR A FACT 2 OTHER LOOK OUTS SAW IT BUT THE OFFICER OF THE DECK WOULD NOT REPORT IT BECAUSE HE THOUGHT IF HE DID THEY WOULD REMOVE HIM FROM THE SHIP THIS MOVEMENT WENT ON FOR THE ENTIRE 4 HOUR WATCH WHERE UNTIL NOW I HAVE NOT TOLD MANY PEOPLE THIS STATEMENT IS TRUE TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY FOR RECALLING THE EVENTS AS THEY TOOK PLACE
