On the night of Feb. 9, 1913, a luminous body was seen in Canada, the US, at sea, and in Bermuda. It had, according to accounts in Jour. Roy. Astro. Soc. of Canada, Nov. and Dec. 1913, a long tail, and was variously seen as single or as “composed of three or four parts, with a tail to each part.”
According to one writer, “There were probably 30 or 32 bodies, and the peculiar thing about them was their moving in fours and threes and twos, abreast of one another; and so perfect was the lining up that you would have thought it was an aerial fleet maneuvering after rigid drilling.”
