Appearance / Description of Object(s)
From what I did see of the U.F.O. it appeared to be somewhat cylindrical, emersed in intense blue light and produced a green after effect. The object was completely silent and travelled at unbelievable speed.
Size of Object(s)
if I had have measured its size with my fingers at the time, I would say it would have measured about 4 inches across. I predict that the actual size of the object would have been around 50 ft including the tail.
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
I am guessing that it was 50 metres off the ground and about 500 metres off to our left.
Description of Area / Surroundings
At an aquaculture farm, over the water right near the airport. There was also a large radio telescope nearby. It was a crystal clear night with no moon, and it wa pitch black apart from the lights on our barge.
Full Description & Details
I was working night shift out on the water, travelling in a boat, when out of the corner of my eye I saw a bright light. When I turned to look, the object took off at an unusually high speed. This object was large, probably 50 ft and travelling about 50 metres off the ground. I could not see the object itself for the glowing blue light surrounding it, which left a green glowing trail as it took off. In my opinion, no aircraft could have moved that fast, especially when it produced absolutely no sound. My workmate, who was with me at the time saw it also and could not explain it. We were both dumbfounded and unnerved. The whole experience gave us a strange eery feeling. The whole experience lasted only about 15 seconds.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
Not at all. The only thing I could think of would be a comet, although this doesnt really add up.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I have always believed in UFO's but the other person who saw it with me didn't believe prior to this encounter. He does now.
The sighting gave me the eeriest feeling that made the hairs on my arms stand on end. it completely blew me out.
