Strange lights off Dog Island 1932 / 2004 (920 x 600mm)

On Nov. 29, at 9.30 pm. the Union Steamship Co. ‘Waikouaiti’ foundered on rocks near Dog Island. Situated in Foveaux Strait, only a few miles SE. of Bluff, the Captain and crew failed to see the lighthouse beams in dense fog. There may have been some confusion, but very little was made at the time, of the green orbs hovering in the proximity.
