Full Description & Details
I was not the only kid who saw it.
It was a very hot summer evening in the early 90's, we (kids from around the neighborhood) played football/soccer on the backyard behind our houses all evening long, and the sunset started with normal/usual colors, tender orange and stuff, but then, bit by bit, it turned into a very intense orange, nearly red, almost like blood-orange-ish within a few minutes. I've never seen such a sunset before and after this evening never again. Well, still nothing totally usual, but all of a sudden I noticed a little dark spot in the sky. It was too small to be an airplane, weather balloon, jet or whatever, and additionally it didn't move - at all. It just didn't move a bit. And there was absolutely no sound at all, no turbine noise or whatever. Then, again all of a sudden, it moved, but so damn fast, like in a split second, that all the kids couldn't follow its path. I tried to spot it again and saw that it has stopped above our houses, way up in the sky, again not moving at all, no noises, no nothing. It stayed there for some seconds and then moved again, absolutely, frighteningly fast, and disappeared... or at least we couldn't see it anymore.
be explained as any conventional man-made or natural
Can't possibly know, but I doubt it was man-made.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
Watched the x files tv show, lol. Was scared as a kid of aliens. Today imho the universe is just too big for us to be the only intelligent life form in it.
