1949, November 14: Commander Bodler's Wheels of Light
It was November 14, 1949, 6:30 PM, and Commander J.R. Bodler's ship had just passed through the Strait of Hormuz into the Arabian Sea, bound for India. It was a clear moonless night with a calm sea, when the Third Mate called Bodler to the bridge to see something unusual.

Anomalies: Bodler's Wheels of Light
I've been meaning for some time to dig a bit on the reports of 'wheels of light' seen in the oceans of the world. Now commonly treated as being underwater equivalents of the UFOs in the air, it's not entirely clear if the aerial phenomena can actually be related to the underwater one. While there are other reports (which I'll check soon), the sighting reported by Commander J.R. Bodler in 1952 constitutes one of the rare moments in anomalous studies when an expert witness was in perfect conditions for observing an unknown phenomena!
