UFO Case Directory (RADCAT):
“Object Just Off The Water /
Radar Tracked From Boat
July 5, 1979
Gulf of Alaska, S. of Seward, Alaska”


The whole UFO case report:
Carl Feindt:
July 5, 1979 - Gulf of Alaska
2:45 a.m. They were halibut fishing south of Seward, Alaska. A super bright object came down through the clouds and became stationary close to the water. At the same time a target appeared on their radar at about two miles distant, a really strong target. All of a sudden the radar heading was knocked off of its setting and one of the crew had to reset it. It was a bright glowing object with a bowl-like shape which faded out and simultaneously disappeared from the radar screen, then reappeared visually and on radar. The radar heading was knocked off when the object approached the boat. The object was only a couple of feet off the water. The incident lasted for about five minutes and the radar was picking up a strong signal.”

UFO Report:
“The 1979 UFO Chronology”

Created: 15 October 2007
Updated: 6 December 2016

Quote from the UFO report:
“This is currently a 14-page chronology of UFO incidents and events for 1979. Our thanks for these chronologies must go to Richard Hall (the original 1979 chronology from UFOE II), Dan Wilson (archive researcher), and Jean Waskiewicz (online NICAP DBase [NSID]). You will note the many foreign reports that we are now being able to access. Our special thanks to Dan Wilson for getting those to us. As more come in, this page will be updated. Previous chronologies (1947 to 1969) involved the expertise of two other team members: William Wise (Project Blue Book Archive) and Brad Sparks (Comprehensive Catalog of Project Blue Book Unknowns).

This year was the second and final season for Project UFO which was an NBC television series. Based loosely on the real-life Project Blue Book, the show was created by Dragnet veteran Jack Webb, who pored through Air Force files looking for episode ideas. The show was produced by Col. William Coleman who had had his own spectacular UFO sighting while in the Air Force.
