December 23, 2014

A reported flare sighting this past Sunday [Dec 21] “was most likely not marine distress flares but possibly something atmospheric in nature,” the Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre said.

A spokesperson said, “Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre [BMOC] was notified of suspected flares sighted between Church Bay and The Great Sound.

“After police attendance in a land unit and BMOC observation by RADAR and radio broadcasts requesting reports of any flare sightings, it was determined that the sighting reported was most likely not marine distress flares but possibly something atmospheric in nature.

“No further reports or sightings were received by 11:40pm and no further action was taken.”
