OK . . . So you're parked somewhere isolated, having deep communication with your favorite date . . . or maybe out in the back yard with the kids considering the glory of the night sky . . . and then you see it - a light or formation of lights or a streak of fire tearing through the atmosphere, and you sit bolt upright and say "Holy Mother of Pearl! What was THAT?" Well, you've asked a good question. Most UFO researchers will admit that there's a 90 to 95 per cent chance you've just seen a meteor or maybe a satellite or the planet Venus or the International Space Station or balloons or flares or Chinese lanterns or misidentified conventional aircraft. But when you're at sea, with nobody visible on any horizon, and suddenly a hundred yards off your bow a glowing object erupts from a seething spot in the ocean and quickly disappears into the cosmos overhead . . . that raises a different set of questions. Satellites, meteors, space stations, balloons, flares, lanterns, conventional aircraft and the planet Venus just don't act like that. And then there's the opposite case, wherein an airborne object streaks down from above and disappears into the water, not with a great splash, but leaving hardly a ripple to announce its passage. The sea could not have parted more obligingly had the craft been piloted by Moses. And how about the underwater lights that sometimes pace (dare I say stalk?) ships and once in a while even bump them . . . Submarines, you say? Not likely. Submarines are the last word in stealth and concealment. They don't have external lights. Water UFO's (some people like to call them USO's) are probably the most uncanny and most unexplainable of UFO sighting types, and the least vulnerable to out-of-hand dismissal. So why haven't we heard more about them? Well, one reason might be that, although 75% of Earth's surface is covered by water, humanity in general objects to getting its feet wet; ergo, there are far fewer witnesses to cover a far greater area. We shouldn't assume, however, that this means there is a dearth of information from that quarter, and here is where Carl Feindt's awesome investigations, the work of years, humbles the efforts of many of his colleagues. Seafarers are a particularly observant lot. Their lives depend on it. Their calling requires careful record keeping; it's very easy to get lost where there are no street signs and no gas stations at which to ask directions, and it's distressing to run aground on a rocky reef where open water was expected. Author Feindt recognized the gold mine in these records and the observations they contained; he painstakingly extracted from them a rich vein of ore and refined it into this 500-odd page compendium of more than 1100 encounters between men and an unknown technology in the Kingdom of Neptune . . . Meticulously researched, extensively documented, this important work should become the "go-to" reference on the topic of water UFO's . . .
