If the loggs still exist, then look in the Navfac Eleuthera Base ones. Base shut down in 1979

I was standing Guard duty one night on a top secret base on the Island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. I had very low level, but very slow moving craft come down island, turn and make an approach towards the gate shack that i was in. It was slow moving and was only at a tree top height. It stopped directly above me and I filed a report to the Officer Of the day, but he would not believe me that it was there. I logged my report in at 2:15 am and stepped outside the shack, and looked up at it which seemed like a couple of minutes, but when I went back in the shack to sign this craft out it was 2:30. I was not sure as to what to make of this, so I mentened this to several people on the base. A couple of days later, I was talking about this, and an Officers wife heard me talking, and she said that she saw it sitting over the shack I was in, but instead of wakeing up her husband, she got afraid and went to bed.

I asked everyone who was on watch to look for anything unusual relating to this, and when I went on watch again it came back, but this time I had about 5 people there with me. It came down island again, as it did before and turned towards me at tree top high and approched me, but stopped about 100 yards away, and turned down island again out of sight. This happened 5 times, but only on my duty. It always stopped about 100 yards away and turned down island.

I guess the thing that bothers me the most is that I had 16 section duty, which means that, every 16th day I would stand duty, and it showed up (only) on my duty.

Well, after the 5th time it did not come back until. I was sitting in the shack, and the hair on the back of my neck stood up, like someone was behind me, or watching me,so I walked to the top of the hill where I could see the other side or the island,and there it was crusing along the island at a high rate of speed, about what looked like about a couple of feet off the water.

I have had dreans on occasion of a green beam, and I feel I an all knowing feeling knowledge of how this craft is powered.

I have more or less kept this to myself, as people who have not experenced this, tend to make you feel like an ass when you bring it up. ((name deleted))

PS; As I looked below, the craft I saw was a tipical saucer type with the top dome showing a lite that looked like a diamond that you would turn in the lite of day. I have never seen one like it in all the articles and shows about them. I just remember the sound that it made which was like a low pitched sound of wind blowing through a tunnel.


The date is approximate. PD
