Ghost ship on radar

Got a really strange return on the radar this week. Heading down a wide ship channel with no boats in sight. Radar on maybe 1/2 mile mode, auto tune, everything normal. Get this pretty substantial round blip out in front, nothing there visually. It was clear, defined, and persistent. There on every sweep. I looked for a flock of birds, high lines, anything, but there was absolutely nothing there. We were closing, and I actually steered around it a bit. As it got to near the center of my radar display, it was gone, and did not reappear behind me. <insert Twilight Zone music here>
Very strange.
