WEIRD NATURE / UFOLOGY:
10:00 PM, from The Life and Voyages of Christopher Columbus: Christopher Columbus and Pedro Gutierrez; while on the deck of the Santa Maria, observed, "a light glimmering at a great distance." It vanished and reappeared several times during the night, moving up and down, "in sudden and passing gleams." It was sighted 4 hours before land was sighted, and taken by Columbus as a sign they would soon come to land.
