evidence to show that saucers use rivers, lakes, and oceans to travel.
The U.S. Navy tracks as many saucers under water as above. Remember,
two-thirds of the earth's surface is covered with water and humans have
explored only about 5 percent of the area covered by our oceans. What
better way to travel unseen and undetected?
