A chief engineer reported to the National UFO Reporting Center that 80 miles southeast of New Orleans in the Gulf of Mexico, on March 21, 2017, he witnessed an elongated object around 1,200 feet long “rising up out of the water” to about 40 feet and then vanishing with an astounding rate of motion into the sky.
The event was noted two days later, when the director of National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC), Peter Davenport, published the story to his website and conceded the MUFON Director of Communications – Roger Marsh.
“I am a Chief Engineer on an Offshore Supply Vessel, and the events I am going to put forward are accurate, to the best of my knowledge,” the eyewitness said in his report.
“Close to 7 p.m. on March 21st, just before dusk, I and four of the crew members aboard our vessel saw a craft that appeared to be five times our 240-foot vessel in length. My line of sight was about one-quarter mile from our vessel. There was a rig behind the craft about a half-mile. I used this to help gauge the size of the craft,” he further explained.
The sighting occurred around 80 miles southeast of New Orleans, Louisiana.
He said the whole incident lasted no more than 40 seconds.
Moreover, he described how the mysterious object just climbed up from the water while the weirdest paradox was there wasn’t any water trickling from it. Following this, within a second, the witness said the craft vanished at a 30-degree angle into the sky.
According to the observant, the craft operated with an incredible, indescribable speed. He further described it as a dark, oval-shaped object that didn’t produce any sounds.
