Date Reported:

Sighting Time: 




No. of Witnesses: 



30 secs- one minute

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

The object reminded me of the colour of a street lamp- it was very orange in colour, glowing but duller around the edges of the object. It was roundish in shape but appeared wider at the base than at the top. The object, from where we viewed it, looked about the same length as a plane when flying past however, its shape and colour were unlike any plane we have ever seen and it was much rounder than any plane. No wings or cabin lights were visible- no detail could be seen on the craft, it just emitted a orange glow. The light began to fade before the object disappeared.

Size of Object(s)

Approximately 2 cm in length from where we viewed it- i dont know how long in real life however.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

The object was about the height of a high flying plane. Perhaps about 500m away from us in the sky.

Description of Area / Surroundings

The apartments we viewed it from are aprox 500m from the coast. The area surrounding is very mountaneous and rural. The island is volcanic so it is very rocky- very little vegetation. When looking off of the balcony there were mountains to the front and left of us and beach to the right.

Full Description & Details

Me and my boyfriend spotted the craft from our balcony in Jandia, Feuerteventura during our summer holiday. I am not sure but I think it may have been Tuesday the 6th of September 2005 however, it was definately between the 3rd-12th. Lying on the balcony, i noticed a glowing object situated over the mountains to the left of us about 10 past two in the morning. On looking up to see what it was i became aware of a distant whistling sound which was almost like a skipping rope being spun round very fast however, it was very windy at the time so this may be unconnected (my boyfriend does not recall hearing such a sound). The craft in the sky was roundish in shape- wider at the base than at the top and was emitting an orange glow, very much similar to that of a street lamp. At first we thought it was an airplane (it was about the same height as an plane) however it began to speed across the sky towards the left of us before instantly changing direction and zooming back toward the right. It then rose before dropping and then rising in a triangular shape and then hovered in the sky (rising and falling in height slightly) for about 6 seconds when i noticed that the light began to fade. The object shot further to the right which, was towards the coastline of Jandia beach before fading completely.

The whole episode itself lastest approximately 30 seconds. The craft was able to move unlike any aircraft i have ever witnessed- able to change direction in an instant without having to turn its body around. It was also able to hover in the air and manouvre 360 degrees, and was very fast in speed: again faster than any aircraft i have ever witnessed. My boyfriend and I were sceptics before this experience and have researched the subject since but havnt been able to find answers. I'm not saying this was an "alien-craft"- we wonder if maybe it was some kind of military aircraft? However, we are still very intrigued by it- neither of us have witnessed anything like it before and are still amazed by it! We both witnessed it very clearly- there were many bars open at the time and we wonder if ,other tourists or locals may have witnessed the same thing?

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

No- maybe a hightech plane not yet known to the public, e.g from a military base etc however, the speed of the object was too fast to be any man made object. It was too fast to be an animal and it was able to perform pinprick turns.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

Before the sighting i was intrigued by UFO stories however have always been very sceptic. My boyfriend was a total sceptic and refused to believe in them. However after the incident, we are much more open minded- my boyfriend and I are still slightly sceptical. Before the incident, neither had much knowledge of UFOs. This is our first encounter.
