Intelligent light in sky disappears when spotted by observer. Aug 8, 2019. Where: Prince William Sound, (Port Fidalgo) Alaska Title: Intelligent Light in sky disappears when spotted by observer Duration: 3 minutes Exact time: 11:57pm to 12:00am Weather Conditions: one low lying wispy cloud, slight sunset still on horizon.

Few bright stars starting to show. Still night with no wind. Event: I witnessed a bright red/orange light rise up from on top of Bligh Island to my west from my bedroom window.

It took 60 seconds to raise up to a stationary position and hovered for 2 mins., then “blinked” out. My cousin also witnessed this from a different vantage point.

The light was very bright and seems to be recurring each night. I’ve put out a game camera at to capture 20 second time-lapse intervals to see if it occurs at the same time every night.

Alaska - bright light over Prince William Sound island blinks off when noticed during the middle of the night. I live in a remote part of Alaska along the coast of Prince William Sound (eastern side, Port Fidalgo). I was opening up my cabin during the spring, when a cold front come through and I went outside at 1:30am to check on other buildings and crack water lines so that they would not freeze during the night.

As I was walking back to another building we have a dock that is on the oceanside. It was a calm, still, clear black night with many stars out, so I went down to the dock to see if the northern lights were out. I looked to the East and there was a slight shimmer of northern lights (green).

Then I looked to the West and immediately saw a star I didn't recognize above Bligh Island to the Northwest. The white light seems to be in proximity to a small native village called Tatitlek about 5 miles away. The white light was brighter then any star and shimmered across the water like the moon does at times.

It compared it to the top light of a massive commerc! ial boat light when night fishing. But this light was above Bligh Island and I could see the outline of the island so I could tell that it was not someone standing on the island and estimate it was around 300' above the ridge. I've looked that direction many times at night and had never seen this bright light before and realized that it was actually in Port Fidalgo above Bligh Island.

As I started to zone in at closer, I noticed that there was a ribbon of rainbow like lights undulating around it horizontally. I immediately gasped and blurting out "oh shit" aload and at that very moment, the light BLINKED OFF. This was my first unknown sighting and I actually thought if I ever saw something like this I would be excited to have witnessed a UFO.

But the feeling I had was utter dread the moment after it happened. The reason for this I think is because I feel like it heard me somehow and hid the moment it realized that someone saw it. Which tells me that it did n! ot want to be seen.

I looked for it from the safety of my cabin deck for another hour and did not see it again. I did see a small plane approach Blight Island from the West and changed direction over Blight Island and started heading southeast at about 8000'. Possible coincedence? I estimate the object/light was hovering at 300' above the top of Blight Island.

It was completely stationary. And when it blinked off the light that reflected across the ocean as bright as a full moon also disappeared. I wrote down notes that night and sketched the sighting.

And finally have a chance to report it now. Conditions - Clear night, 35 degree's. No wind.

No sound. Sighting - 30 seconds on the dock. 5 seconds witnessing object, then disappear.

Full Report Text:

Orange water we were on a family vacation in Alaska, it was my moms birthday and dad had chartered a fishing trip. We left at about 7am and went out about 12 miles into the sound from Valdez. at 10:53 I checked my watch because I saw an orange tint in the water and the captain had suggested we try another spot.

so four of us fishing for halibut started to retrieve our lines. One fellow had caught a shark . we killed it and threw it overboard just a moment before.

Suddenly the water fourty feet from the boat exploded into the air and the water really turned orange for three hundred feet around the splash. A disk shaped object with windows and lights shot up out of the water to about one thousand feet above. It hovered there.

The next thing I remember is the water around the boat was teaming with sharks and i had hooked one. after gafing a four footer and returning it to the sea.i again checked my watch and it was 11:10.

we headed away from the spot and i asked the others if they saw the strange craft. NO ONE remembered seeing it at all except for me. The craft was about 25 feet in diameter had a rotating edge around it near the bottom which was dark in color like black sand.

it was about six feet tall with portholes or windows 3 feet apart on the main body of the craft which did not rotate. I think i should draw a picture instead. ((NUFORC Note: We will ask the witness to submit his graphic of the object.

PD)).
