Duration: 5 mins
No of observers: 2

Location: Southwest Harbor, ME, USA

Shape: Light

I was serviing in the US Coast Guard, stationed at Great Duck Island, an Island 10 miles of the coast of Bar Harbor Maine. One evening another coastie and I observed a large round white light near the shoreline, some 10 miles away. At first we thought it may have been headlights of a car, then we thought it may have been a searchlight of a helicopter, but we checked with the base and none were in the area. After looking at this light for about 3 mins it moved quickly from the shoreline to a point south of the island, it made the approx 15 miles over water in about 5 seconds. It stayed about 100 feet off the water, hovering some 5 or 6 miles off our island, it then moved away, south, and out of sight in about 8 seconds. Traveling at least 15 miles in that time, as that was how far we could see from where we stood. It made no sound.


Witness elects to remain totally anonymous. PD
