NOVEMBER 1978, YOKOSUKA, KANAGAWA, JAPAN, TWO WORKMEN:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Fabio Picasso reportedly told that in Yokosuka, Japan, on November 1978, in the evening, near the US Navy base, two construction workers were fishing off a rock seawall when suddenly a figure came out of the water nearby and stood still staring at them.

The figure was described as huge, about 3 meters in height, covered with thick scaly skin like a reptile, with two large yellow eyes that seemed to focus on the witnesses.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Yokosuka, Japan, on November 1978, in the evening, near the US Navy base two construction workers were fishing off a rock seawall when suddenly a figure came out of the water nearby and stood still staring at them. The figure was described as huge about 3 meters in height and covered with thick scaly skin like a reptile. It had two large yellow eyes that seem to focus on the witnesses. No other information.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "Fabio Picasso, Strange Magazine #8."

Points to consider:

The very poorly document story seems to have no credibility.
