I grew up in rural NWPA, surrounded in forest. I took an early interest in cryprozoology and sharks and have read many books on various crypto subjects such as Bigfoot and Megalodon over the years. I am not a professional writer or a journalist, but I do the best I can. I have a quirky, obscurely dry and sometimes sarcastic sense of humor than can get me in trouble. Some love me and some hate me, but I am who I am.

This is a strange one but I wanted to stick to the theme Javier started with the vanishing story.

Reported on September 17, a group of people on a boat off the coast of Sweden observed a small white orb that seemed to be chasing them.

The bright white orb was obviously under intelligent control and could have had something to do with a submarine says a Navy official:

“Could be a submarine.” Jan Thomquist, Navy tactical commander. “We take the material seriously. One cannot exclude that a submarine is involved,”

The boat crew was baffled by the object but were of clear enough mind to make a video of the USO. I call it a USO even though it is skimming along the surface of the water.

As mentioned above, the military takes this very seriously and is investigating.

Now the data analyzed. “I understand that they reacted to the buoy movements, the data are very interesting,” says Jan Thomquist, Navy tactical commander of the Armed Forces.

Examine the position. Now, analysts, among other things to pick up additional witness statements, investigating the precise location, weather conditions, currents and sail the boat’s cruising speed.

“It’s too early to say what this is. The reason could be the strong currents, but really, I would not give any more comments until we have completed the analysis,” he says. Excludes no . . . If a submarine can be involved he would not rule [it] out.

“I have no reason to do so. The analysis will show. We estimate that we have received this report and we will take it very seriously.”

It could be some sort of hoax, but I don’t know many people that would perpetrate something like this and then report it to the Military.

I leave it up to the GT community to chime in and give their take on this strange occurrence.

    That is weird. For a completely non-aerodynamic ball shape, it’s cutting through the water pretty fast at the beginning there. The skeptic in me says that it must be attached to this or another boat that is out of the frame, but don’t see a wake.

    Anyone with sea legs notice anything suspicious?

    And if it was from a sub, wouldn’t the design of something like that be more aero, such as bullet shaped? I can’t see a ball shape being used for something that has to keep up with another vessel.

  • Brain cell

    We can’t tell the bearing of the cameraman’s vessel, so the “object” could have been travellng straight, and the camera vessel simply cut across it’s path, thus creating the illusion that the thing turned and closed in on the sailboat?

  • Irishfan

    Whatever it is looks man made. Maybe a bouy for a submarine under water to transmit and receive radio transmissions?

  • ElfishGene

    I believe somebody pointed out that it’s in fact a fishing bouy hooked into a marlin or a shark or some other large aquatic animal, and if i have to be honest that was the first thing i thought of.

  • Gene, great theory!

  • Ramon

    It might also be a bouy hooked to an anchor, and with enough current it will look like this. The illusion is the sailing boat, it LOOKS like the uso is moving with the boat but is in fact stationary, as the sailing boat also works against the current. I hope i make sense..

    EG might be “The Man” on this one. That makes me think of the barrels Quint harpooned into Jaws. I doubt it is a submarine because I just don’t see a sub that quick or maneuverable. If the object were being towed the cable would break the surface and I see no sign of that.
    Watching the video again, I notice the ball slows noticeably when it dips below the surface, and speeds up when it breaks.

    Or possibly, Number Six was on the boat.

    Why is it creepier than any UFO? It is super-creepy, regardless of what it is.

  • Dave R

    Must have been a pretty big shark. Anyone see Jaws?

  • Digicom

    I agree with EG’s analysis. Based on the color & size of the object, a white mooring buoy would seem like to most likely culprit. These come in a variety of shapes & sizes, including the 41″ spherical version in the linked photo below:


    These types of buoys are used by civilian boats when mooring and can easily fall overboard if not properly secured before making way.
