Cigar-shaped object seen landing on the water in South Carolina

Date: July 15, 1981
Location: Newberry, South Carolina, United States

Carl E. Moore, 14-years-old, was fishing with friends near Newberry, South Carolina, when he saw a 30-foot long cigar-shaped UFO land on the water. It was flying very slowly over the water, and then settled on the surface of the water, causing steam to rise around it. After about 3 minutes, it rose slightly and hovered about one foot above the surface. Suddenly, it shot skyward, rising vertically until it was out of sight.

OBLONG UFO LANDS ON WATER
By John F. Schuessler

Carl E. Moore, 14-years-old, was fishing with friends near Newberry, South Carolina, when he saw a large cigar-shaped UFO land on the water. The sighting took place around 10:30 p.m. on July 15, 1981. The weather was excellent, with a clear sky and a temperature of 75 degrees.

Carl and his friends had been fishing that day, but with very little luck. They had only a few fish to show for their efforts and were on their cots for a rest. Carl decided to go down to the boat ramp and check his trout lines; so he was alone when he observed the UFO.

The UFO was a 30-foot-long glowing silver-white cigar-shaped thing. It was flying very slowly over the water, perhaps 20-25 m.p.h. He said it slowly settled on the surface of the water, causing steam to rise around it. After about 3 minutes, it rose slightly and hovered about one foot above the surface. Suddenly, it shot skyward, rising vertically until it was out of sight. Carl described the speed as "faaast!," claiming the UFO went from the hovering position to more than 250 m.p.h. in an instant.

The UFO was larger than a standard-sized automobile, without windows or doors. It was covered with small whitish-blue lights. These lights kept flickering back and forth as long as the object was in sight. When the UFO landed on the surface of the water, it was less than 50 feet from Carl.

Carl described his feelings during the sighting as "quite disturbed," but he was able to "keep his cool" and observe the whole event. Because his friends were asleep on their cots, he felt that no one would believe his experience but when he heard about Project VISIT in Friendswood, Texas, he felt compelled to make a report.
