A few days ago I noticed what appears to be lights underwater between a couple of the sunken boats off the docks at the Ferry Terminal. You can see these from the docks, also from the very end of Tokotah Alley, and someone else said from the Library. Does anybody know what these lights are? They are moving back and forth very slowly around one of the boats, and the lights from the water occasionally illuminate the side of two of the boats. It looks like someone is working underwater maybe? They are mesmerizing to watch, and I don't recall seeing them before.

Location: um... how did i get here..?
this has been discussed before. canonically i believe they're scuba divers. once upon a time that boat was supposed to have been raised as a platform for explorers to stand on... the DRC website has some commentary on that...

Yep, you're right, I just found an old picture of the scuba divers from a 2009 post. What are they doing down there though? I wonder if they are going to raise the boat.

Great find, Thuraya! Can you post a link to the photo of the scuba divers, please?

Ok, here we go lol... Have a look, Tai and all, what I've found so far... :P

A chatlog from 2007 'Nick White in Ae'gura' mentioning some explanations to those lights...

A whole thread about this subject 'Pulsing light at the ferry docks' January 2007...

And last but not least great pictures posted by Andy as 'Light in the lake' in February 2010...

Have fun... :D

Do you think this means the return of DRC presence? Or is it just an illusionist?

Sorry, Tai'lahr, I should have said "scuba divers' lights." No pix of the actual divers, although that would be awesome if one of our skydivers could go a little bit "lower" and see who's down there. Those pix were similar to the ones just posted by Artic Wagon.

I had a look under the water with the drizzle flymode and no luck. :cry:

No divers, only spot(s) of light.

Ah nuts! That is such a cool picture though. Interesting that Cyan has allowed for active space under that boat, I wonder if they're going to do anything else with it.

Thanks for the links, Janaba and Artic Wagon. You're both great librarians! :D

No worries about the specifics, Thuraya. It's just that whenever someone refers to a find, it's nice to include a link to it so others can see, too. I wasn't really asking for myself as much as I was for others like yourself who might be curious about it. :)
