Brian Vike called the U.K. on Friday May 2, 2008 and caught up with the gentleman who had this sighting and did a telephone interview with him over what he saw.
Excellent sighting and I will be airing the interview on the Vike Report radio show this Sunday night (May 4, 2008)
Full Description of event/sighting: Hello Brian, I emailed you a few years ago regarding this sighting.
You telephoned me at home on the only night that I am out of the house so I missed you. I really would like to know what I saw the night in 1974.
By trade I was an airframe mechanical and systems fitter on military aircraft. At the time of the sighting I was working as an engineer officer with Cunard Cargo Shipping.
We had left Auckland New Zealand and were sailing east at about seventeen knots. The horizon was lit with the light of Auckland city.
I went out onto an after deck and looked towards the stern of the ship. About four miles behind was a light at sea level it looked like a fishing boat. The light then ascended straight up into the clouds in about three seconds.
The light grew so large and so bright in intensity that it lit the whole of the sky. I remember thinking that no battery powered light could get that bright and so big.
The light then dimmed and descended to sea level and approached the ship on the port side. As it got to within about one hundred yards I realized it was a huge flying disc approximately eighty to one hundred feet in diameter.
It was the color grey shaped like a discuss thrown at a school sports event and had colored lights flashing slowly around the circumference in sequence one after another.
It came up our port side slightly faster than we were going at about one hundred feet high and one hundred feet away.
It made absolutely no sound and no ripples on the sea. I became frightened and hid behind a ships derrick and peered at it from behind the derrick. It did not show on the ships radar. It came level with amidships and then turned to port and sped off.
What I would like you to answer is this: Are there or were there any 'black projects' at that time (1974) that you know of that resemble what I saw?
I believe what I saw was not from this planet. I would really like to get to the bottom of it before I leave this earth. Kind Regards.
Thank you to the witness for a great report.
If anyone has witnessed the Flying Disc /Object, please send me an email with details of what you saw. Please remember to include the date and time and location. (Town/City – State or Province) and as much detail as possible.
