July 5, 1979 - Gulf of Alaska - "We were halibut fishing in the gulf south of Seward, Alaska about 2:45 a.m. when a super bright object came down through the clouds and became stationary close to the water. At the same time a target appeared on our radar at about two miles distant, a really strong target. All of a sudden the radar heading was knocked off of its setting and one of the crew had to reset it. That just never happens. It was a bright glowing object with a bowl-like shape. It faded out and simultaneously disappeared from the radar screen, then reappeared visually and on radar. The radar heeding was knocked off when the object approached the boat. The object was only a couple of feet off the water. The incident lasted for about five minutes and the radar was picking up a strong signal."
