back in or about 1958 i was 18 years old and on the guided missile cruiser the uss camberra. we were doing naval exercises in the english channel about 300 miles off the coast of france.
80 to 150 various naval craft from many different countries were participating in the exercise.
i was on watch as a seaman and saw this large gray metallic cigar shaped craft come towards the ship through my binoculars. it was described as a fast moving target, according to radar, traveling 5,000 mph. as the craft neared us it slowed down and stopped over us. it was hovering at 35,000 feet, about 15 miles from us. it was as big as a football field. it stayed hovering over us, when we turned it turned, this went on until my shift ended, for about an hour. the craft was metallic gray with no lights and no features on the skin of the craft. when i was relieved of duty i got some refreshment and came back topside to watch it further. it had just left going east towards europe. when it first appeared it seemed to have come from the tip of scotland by way of norway over the sea.
afterwards i went to the bridge to look at the log book to see what had been recorded about this incident. nothing was mentioned about the ufo and the handwriting and ink was identical to both separate listings in the log book. very unlikely since the same person and pen would not have made both entries. the next day we pulled into port in england and nothing was ever said about the incident. i was in the navy from 1956 to 1976.
