Since at least 1873, ships sailing in the Indian Ocean, anywhere between the Persian Gulf to the South China Sea, have reported a mile wide disc passing under their vessels with huge 30 meter wide lights rotating like spokes on a wheel.

Edit: These reports were filed with the US Hydrographic Office. The office was established by an act of 21 June 1866 as part of theBureau of Navigation,Department of the Navy. It was transferred to theDepartment of Defenseon 10 August 1949. The office was abolished on 10 July 1962, replaced by theNaval Oceanographic Office.

The reports from US sources may have stopped when the DoD took over but an Australian report from 1964 popped up as well.

March 23, 1873. The Adelheid sailed over something in the South China Sea that lit up the ocean under that ship for over an hour. This might be the earliest report of this massive circular object in that part of the world.

May 15, 1879. The HMS Vulture saw a large "Ferris Wheel" spinning in the east, and a second one spinning in the opposite direction to the west. The "spokes" are 25 feet wide and spaces are 100 feet wide.

January 5, 1880. R. E. Harris, Commander of the S.S.Shahjehan described the massive Ferris Wheel under a perfectly calm sea near India's Malabar Coast.

May 1880. THe British India Co. ship "Patna" saw the undersea "Ferris Wheel" and counted 16 spokes at 300 yards long. I've think I've got a good idea of the dimensions now with the previous describes 25 foot width of each spoke.

October 1891. Again in the South China Sea. A correspondent saw shafts of light that had had the appearance of rays of a searchlight, and that had moved in a circular motion.

April 4, 1901. Persian Gulf, Captain Hoseason, of SS Kilwa, saw vast shafts of light from the Ferris Wheel USO. Shaft followed shaft upon the surface of the sea revolving at a velocity of about 60 miles an


June 2, 1906. Douglas Carnegie saw, in the Gulf of Oman, he saw "shafts of brilliant light sweeping across the ship's bows at 60 up to 200 miles an hour. These light bars were about 20 feet apart and most regular."

Marxh 13, 1907. Mr. S. C. Patterson of SS Delta in Malacca Strait, 2 A.M."...saw shaftswhich seemed to move round a center--like the spokes of a wheel--and appeared to be about 300 yards long." Lasted about half an hour, while theship traveled 6 or 7 miles.

June 10, 1909. As reported in Scientific American, Crew of the S.S. Bintang saw in the Straits of Malacca a USO under the surface, spinning, with shafts of light coming off of a central hub. It was so big the crew could only see half of it before the horizon.

August 12, 1910. It appears the same rotating UFOUSO with rotating, outward-facing shafts of light was seen northwest of the sighting above, this time in the South China Sea by the Dutch steamer Valentijn. This time it was above the water. Reported to Danish Meteorological Instit.

August 24, 1911. The same USO was seen for an hour and a half by Capt. Tellefson of the steamship Solva in the Gulf of Thailand (fka Gulf of Siam).

1943. Persian Gulf; Seaman Matthew Mangle, from the bow of his ship,sighted a huge disc beneath the surface of the water. The object, glowing with a soft, greenish light, paced the shipat about 12 knots before speeding up and moving out of sight.

Nov 4, 1949. Commamder Bodler of the USS Seaveteran saw three massive wheel shaped UFOs in the Straight of Hormuz. This makes appx 75 years of sightings so far.

April 4, 1951. The "Sheila," while sailing to Djibouti, saw the same half-mile wide horizontal "ferris wheel" pass under her hull, lit 30' wide "spokes" casting the hull's shadow on her sails every few minutes as it rotated passed to the west.

Nov. 30 1951. Capt Baker of the M.V."British Premier" while sailing in the south Persian Gulf reported two, 2-mile-wide disks (as usual with lit sections) spinning under the ship, which was above the point where the two nearly intersected.

Edit: January 23, 1964 - Groote Eylandt, Northern Territory Australia:

Ferris Wheel type under sea pulsing lights. Recorded by Royal Australian Air Force DAFI. (Credit to Harry for adding this one to the list).

I collected links to these events in this thread as I found them:

"It's like floating in the cold ocean, dotted with pulsing hot stars in the distance all around."

I pause briefly - feeling remorse for the world to lose such a poetic mind - as they describe for me the sensation of my knife plunging repeatedly into their body.

I've always loved sunbathing on the beach near the ocean on hot summer days.

As I saw two mountains of sand, teeth and flesh close above me I realized it would be the final time I felt that warmth on my skin.

Dear Tempting

She's been on the run for years now, hunted by her whole society, like and unlike herself, for breaking the most sacred of laws.

Hiding among the humans hasn't been exactly difficult, except for the fact that she is very different from everyone around her and they all seem to know it.

Reid knows herself to be a monster in disguise, the greatest predator this world has ever seen.

That is until she moves to the seaside town of Maya Bay.

He has lived with his small family all over the globe, keeping them safe and fighting to recover his own memories.

They are not a kind species - savage creatures with the appearance of angels.

Even his profession covers his hands in blood.

When strange things start happening in town, he finds his siblings in the middle of it, along with a creature unlike he's ever seen.

A creature with blazing red hair and a voice that puts even the strongest men on their knees.

A creature that makes him throw caution to the wind.

A creature, that somehow, begins to unlock the memories of his past.

When Reid's past finally catches up to her, the one person who seems to want her dead the most is the one to save her.

And he will stop at nothing to keep her safe, even if that means never tasting her again.

Im not that kind of girl to freak out and scream when seaweed brushes up against me in the ocean.

But this time it pulled and when I did scream nothing came out as the water rushed in.
