Subject: Gulf Sighting Report - U.S. Navy Witness

Dear list

Follows is a report BUFOD has recently received, does anybody
have any idea weather this could have been a spinning satellite?

I have tracked the REMOTE_ADDR and it tracks to a us.mil domain
so it is genuine!

All the best

am/pm:                     PM

Description of area where sighting took place: Myself, a
shipmate, and one other under NVG's or Night Vision Goggles
witnessed a light inside orion's star system.

Map ref: Gulf of Aden

Did anyone else witness the sighting?: Yes
relationship of witness: Shipmates aboard ship
relationship of witness 2 : same as first above

Circumstances of the sighting/experience: We observed what
appeared to be flashing lights in the Orion star system.  When
observed under NVG's the light was stationary and pulsing from
bright to dim.  There were no planes insight, but the satellites
we saw were prodominantly moving.  We are in the Gulf of Aden on
a Western Pacific Deployment for the Navy. At about the same
time we witnessed the occurence on the 24th and 25th of January
1999.  I sent a message to the Chief Scientist, Dan Werthimer of
SETI and his reply was, "it must be a plane or satellite
spinning really fast.  Those two were taken into consideration,
but since my UFO detecting abilities are poor to yours, I don't
really know what I saw.  They at SETI also said that they were
there to pick up communication.  Maybe if this was a UFO, maybe
they were trying to get our attention before that sent that one
and only message to us.  Just no one seems to want to believe
that may have been the case.
