Carl and I flew together to Los Angeles to make several Hangar 1 Television programs.
Carl’s interest in water-related UFOs was preceded by his fascination with aircraft. As a boy, he carved balsa replicas of flying machines and in his teens flew model aircraft. He became a cadet in the Civil Air Patrol. Carl went on to study aircraft engineering at the Academy of Aeronautics in New York City. Following two years of service in the Air Force, he was forced to return to civilian life due to a family hardship. He worked in customer service for a major airline for over three decades.
Upon retirement he became active in ufology, about which he had been reading since the early 1960s. A wonderful opportunity presented itself when Jan Aldrich, a UFO researcher, asked for volunteers to do local newspaper searches. Over the course of eight years, he studied microfilm rolls at the University of Delaware, covering the years between 1923 and 1967. To his amazement, he found 750 UFO-related articles in Delaware, the second-smallest state!
Intrigued by the fact that aircraft, as we know them, cannot emerge from water or submerge into water, he started assembling water-related UFO cases. His research has grown into an increasingly large data base and website.
He appeared on TV’s History Channel documentaries “Deep-Sea UFO’s” and “Deep-Sea UFO’s Red Alert” He presented his paper “Physical Influences of a UFO on Water” at the MUFON Symposium in Denver, Colorado. He has been a guest on numerous radio talk shows and gave lectures across the U S and Canada.
Carl Feindt wrote an excellent book about UFOs and Water. Underwater UFOs have been sighted on many occasions lifting out of their submerged depths and taking to the air. In an article entitled “UFOs – at 450 Fathoms,” UFO Reporter Ed Hyde told of the sighting made by Dr. R. J. Villela, a Brazilian scientist, who saw a UFO smash through an estimated 40 feet of ice at the South Pole and soar into the sky at amazing speed.
I have personally seen a UFO surface in our lake on October 1, 1980 at 2 AM; the object was silver with multiple colored lights around its outer rim. The craft was 25 feet in a diameter and has it rose the water poured off the craft.
The first UFO book I read was one written by Ivan Sanderson that contained numerous reports of UFOs emerging and submerging into the ocean. We also had sightings a few years ago off the Palos Verdes Peninsula South of Los Angeles where UFOs were seen traveling under water. “What secrets lurk in ocean depths? Are there alien forms of intelligent life that occupy the vast volumes of water that constitute our oceans, seas, and lakes? The largest of our oceans, the Pacific, covers 64,000,000 square miles and reaches a depth of 36,198 feet, a depth that no ray of sunlight ever reaches. Could these depths hide alien submarine bases?
It was author and researcher Dr. Ivan T. Sanderson who suggested that aliens could remain undetected by building their bases beneath the world’s oceans. Dr. Sanderson found that by actual count, over 50 percent of the UFO sightings had occurred plunging into or coming out of water. This includes oceans, seas, lakes, rivers, and reservoirs. Of the oceanic UFOs (some term them USOs or Unidentified Submersible Objects), one was tracked by the U.S. Navy near Puerto Rico in 1963 and frequently since then. On a training maneuver, a sonar operator detected an object traveling at over 150 knots! The technicians tracked this object for four days and it maneuvered down to the incredible depth of 27,000 feet. Submarines of 1963 could not dive further than a fraction over 5,000 feet into the ocean deeps. What kind of submersible could withstand the tremendous ocean pressures? And how could it overcome the tremendous resistance of water moving at such incredible speeds? I flew to Puerto Rico and interviewed several people who observed UFOs in a Lake on the Southwest corner of the country. The largest of our oceans, the Pacific, covers 64,000,000 square miles and reaches a depth of 36,198 feet, a depth that no ray of sunlight ever reaches. Could these depths hide alien submarine bases?
(Note: We now know that may use a process called supercavitation)
Many witnesses have reported huge cigar-shaped vehicles emerging from the oceanic hydrospaces of earth to take to the sky. In 1965, such an event was logged in the records of the Norwegian ship T.T. Jawesta on the 6th of July and in the log of an Argentinean ship, the Naviero off the coast of Brazil on July 20, 1967. The officers and crew could see a shining object in the sea no more than 50 feet away. It was cigar-shaped and about 110 feet in length and emitted a powerful blue and white glow. It ran silently and without wake through the water. It paced the Naviero for 15 minutes, then suddenly dived and passed beneath the ship and vanished rapidly into the great depths.
Taking on Water
They pulled their sail down to slow their boat to avoid a collision, but when the ship approached their boat they realized it wasn’t a ship. It was a UFO with a lot of lights on it. It was sucking water up into it and passed slowly within twenty meters of the boat, but the fishermen don’t think the UFO saw them. It just went by them about six meters above the water, sucking up a column of water almost as wide as the UFO. The water didn’t fall back into the ocean. The UFO went past them and disappeared in the distance.”
08-04-1971 –Three vortexes came out from the sea and from inside them an object appeared.”
07-??-1977 – Could see the water of the lake surging upward as if being sucked into the machine.”
10-23-1978a -Column of water “hovered 100 feet high by 15 feet wide before falling fanlike into the sea”
07-17-1992 – Same as 10-23-1978a “sucking up a column of water almost as wide as the UFO”
04-26-1994– A center plume of water shot up to the bottom of the UFO.
UFO ” Makes Waterspout
Below the UFO the water began to chum. Mist swirled into the air. A center plume of water shot up to the bottom of the UFO. It was a waterspout. The UFO moved slowly to the left and I aimed the camera and took Photo 49. Ten to fifteen seconds passed while I stared at this amazing scene. Suddenly the waterspout collapsed. The UFO angled off to the left, climbed at a sharp angle, and disappeared into the hazy sky.

For years witnesses have seen many types of UFOs cruising off the Palos Verdes Peninsula in Southern California. UFOs have actually been seen to come out of the water in the San Pedro Channel. In the early seventies, my friend Jim was on the boat returning from Santa Catalina Island to San Pedro Harbor when he spotted a low, flying disk cruise silently over the channel boat. The craft was so close he could make out every detail of its structure including the four hemispherical pods on its underside.
Strange blue-green lights have been seen in the water since 1989, and again in 1990, witnesses have seen as many as 20 events an hour. One large light appeared to be as much as 100 feet in diameter. This large light spawned babies no larger than 10 to 12 feet in length. These lights were seen to move swiftly under the ocean’s surface some 500 to 1,000 feet from the coastline in Abalone Cove. These lights were too large and too swift to be fish. One of the lights was reported to have emerged from the water.
Large numbers of dead fish are often noticed after the UFO is seen diving into or emerging from the water causing speculation that the propulsion system using high energy electrical systems kills the fish. On one occasion on February 19, 1982, on Lake Lacar, Argentina a UFO had plunged into the lake and shortly thereafter a large number of dead fish were observed. The dead fish were sent to a laboratory and the fish’s air bladder systems had been compressed by a shock wave. The rapid movement of the UFO may have been to blame.
In 1992 a sea kayaker viewed an amazing sight off the Palos Verdes Peninsula. He was four or five miles south of Los Angeles when a waterspout suddenly formed some hundreds of yards ahead of his kayak. As he observed this spout, the forward motion of the funnel stopped, the curtain of light mist surrounding the waterspout disappeared and a rotating column of what seemed to be solid ice appeared. As the sun reflected off the rotating mass of ice crystals, it appeared to be a sight of extraordinary beauty. The height of the ice column was estimated at 100 to 150 feet. When the ice column collapsed back into the ocean, it created a whirlpool. After this amazing event, the kayaker paddled over to examine floating fragments of ice and found specimens of fish embedded in the frozen pieces.

Navy is Likely Primary on UFOs
There is indication that the Office of Naval Intelligence is primary in the UFO subject. The Navy and the U.S. Government has been aware of the ‘marine aspect’ of the phenomenon all along. It is much more likely UFOs come from the oceans rather than from planets millions miles away. If they make the trip from a planet they hide in bases on Earth that are often underwater.
Air Intelligence Division Study No. 203 with the help of the Office of Naval Intelligence presents the first important clue that the Pentagon was well aware of the phenomenon’s marine nature. This document is one of the rarest documents in the national archives linking the Office of Naval Intelligence to an association with the investigation of the phenomenon and offers an early clue that the study of the UFO phenomenon did not fall totally within the realm of the Air Force. The Navy could be more involved than the Air Force since thousands of sightings occur in the ocean..?
There has been in past efforts to destroy UFO reports but a new policy appears to be taking effect.
Feb 1963, Royal Navy North Atlantic Fleet:
After Tom witnessed the senior officer enter the UFO observations in the radar log book, their shift ended. Radar room personnel on the early morning watch ate breakfast and then turned in. Tom said he was awakened at 12:30 AM and ordered to report to the ward room, along with the five radar and sonar operators on his shift that morning.
The senior officer proceeded to go over the events of that morning, asking questions about the radar-sonar observations. He told the six men that their conversations were being taped and explained that until more was known about the unknown target, they were to remain silent about what they had seen. “Gentlemen,” the officer said, “We will remember that we have all signed the Official Secrets Act.” When Preston came on duty once again at 2400 hours, he said he was surprised to discover that a “spanking new book” had replaced the radar log used the previous morning
The F-14 fighter went to full afterburner right off the deck, pulling a rooster-tail7 behind it. It rattled the ship severely as it went by. This USO thing pulled easily ahead of the jet, crossed the horizon in seconds while underwater… no visible wake. It just… I mean this thing was FAST. Well, we just stood there. Wow, you know… what you say. We speculated about what it was. Guam told us it was a classified matter not to be reported or discussed.
Carrier USS Kearsarge:
The cameraman was able to get some photos, not sure how many, before they all took off almost straight up and out of sight.
The cameraman turned the film into to his superior officer and was told to not ever mention it. My dad said he and his friend were asked about the incident by their NCO and also told not to ever talk about it.
Sonar operator Account -British Destroyer Warship:
One of Sanderson’s sources stated that no less than 13 craft recorded in their logs that their sonar’s had tracked this object. Allegedly, the unknown target continued to be tracked for four days as it maneuvered down to depths of 27,000 feet! (This must have been in the vicinity of the Atlantic’s deepest point — 28,374 feet below sea level — in the Puerto Rico Trench.)
Nothing of known earthly origin can travel underwater at such speeds or maneuver at such depths. The fastest nuclear subs can attain 45 knots (52 miles per hour) and dive to around 3,000 feet.
USS John F. Kennedy:
At the edge of the flight deck we observed a large glowing sphere over the ship. It was twilight, but it looked huge. After that, I talked to a friend who worked in the radar department and he told me that all the radar screens were glowing- and then nothing. They couldn’t detect anything on radar. We heard that the compasses were not working on the bridge and that the radar navigational system had gone offline.
A few days later the Commanding Officer came on the closed circuit television system to address the crew of 5,000. He the Commanding Officer said, “I would like to remind the crew that certain events that take place on board a major naval combative vessel are considered classified and should not be discussed with anyone without a need to know.”
Submarine repair ship ‘The Volga’, October 7, 1977:
“At the time, the reports were classified top secret. Now we have a more open attitude in this country. On a few rare occasions I did publish some UFO information, but I paid for it. The official reaction was very harsh, very negative. My career suffered as a result, and the directorship of a scientific group was taken away from me.”
Captain of Navy R5D aircraft, February 8, 1951:
Crew members and passengers witnessed UFO emerging from the Atlantic Ocean: When we landed at Argentina, Newfoundland, we were met by intelligence officers. It was obvious that there had been many sightings in the same area, and most of the observers did not report it. When we arrived in the United States, we had to make a full report to Navy Intelligence. I found out a few months later that Gander radar did track the object in excess of 1800 mph”.
USS Curtiss (AV-4) Operation Castle, 1954
Steamed into Bikini Island and on to Eniwetok; at 2305 an unidentified luminous object passed over ship from bow to stern, yellowish-orange in color, traveling at a high rate of speed and a low altitude.
The Curtiss was carrying components of six thermonuclear bombs assembled aboard by the scientific laboratory and detonated in the Marshall Islands at Eniwetok and Bikini.
A gigantic pillar of water rose as the sphere emerged
from the sea and collapsed some moments later.
In August 1965, a crew of the Soviet steamship Raduga, while navigating in the Red Sea, observed an unusual phenomenon. At about two miles away, a fiery sphere dashed out from under the water and hovered over the surface of the sea, illuminating it. The sphere was sixty meters in diameter, and it hovered above the sea at an altitude of 150 meters.
A gigantic pillar of water rose as the sphere emerged from the sea and collapsed some moments later.
The testimony of Alexander G. Globa, a seaman from GORI, a Soviet tanker, in June 1984, was in the Mediterranean, twenty nautical miles from the Strait of Gibraltar. At 16:00, Globa was on duty. With him was Second-in-Command S. Bolotov. They were standing watch at the left bridge extension wing when both men observed a strange polychromatic object. When the object was astern, it stopped suddenly. S. Bolotov was agog, shaking his binoculars and shouting: “It is a flying saucer, a real saucer, my God, hurry, hurry, look!” Globa looked through his own binoculars and saw, at a distance over the stern, a flattened out looking object. The UFO was gleaming with a grayish metallic shine. The lower portion of the craft had a precise round shape, its diameter no more than twenty meters. Around the lower portion of it Globa also observed “waves” of protuberances on the outside plating.
At the circumference of the lower smooth disc Globa saw numerous shining, bright, bead-like lights. The top of the middle disc was crowned by a triangular-shaped something. It seemed that it moved in the same direction as the lower disc, but at a much slower pace. Zagadki Sfinksa magazine (Issue # 3, 1992) Odessa,
