from The American Almanac and Repository of Useful Knowledge, 1860

(page 58; as referenced from Winthrop's Hist. of New England, II. pp.152, 153)

About midnight three men, coming in a boat to Boston, saw two lights arise out of the water near the north point of the town cove, in form like a man, and went at a small distance to the town, and to the south point, and then vanished away. The like was seen by many, a week after. A light like the moon arose about the N.E. point in Boston and met the former at Nottles Island—and there they closed in one, and then parted, and closed and parted divers times, and so went over the hill in the island and vanished. Sometimes they shot out flames, and sometimes sparkles. This was on the 11th and the 18th of April, 1643.
