Full Description & Details

Last Saturday I was at Royal Australian Air Force base at Amberley watching the model planes before the big guns came out. I saw past a model plane and spotted a clear sphere in the direction of Denmark Hill as viewed from a little north of the old control tower e\west of the main strip. It seemed far away and was traveling east-South East straight and level flight. Its size was 3mm diameter as measured with the fingers at full arms length. Its height was about 20 degree above horizon. Its appearance was of a glass ball in that I could see the complete spherical outline with the left side being slightly brighter. This agrees with where the sun was (not sure of the time as I did not take my watch that day, however the program (I have a copy) states that the model aircraft were on from 10:41am to 11:05am.



Here is more on the actual sequence and timing of my observation:



Spotted it while looking at a model (large model, 1-2 meters across) from a distance of about 50 meters.

I stopped following the model (from left to right) and watched it intently for about 5-8 seconds and then I deliberately looked away while closing and rolling my eyes.

Looked back – could not see it straight away: perfectly clear sky – nothing to focus on anywhere so I strained and then I caught it (10 seconds later) again, now it was smaller and seemed further away and was blending into the blue of the sky.

It only dawned on me then that I had my 35mm SLR and a 200mm lens with me so I quickly opened the bag, fitted the 200mm (took about 15 seconds) looked up and tried and tried to see it again but could not. I raised the camera up and looked through the lens (only slight advantage for the eyes in object size but screens out side light) but to no avail.



What a bummer! If only I had prepared my camera upon arrival I reckon I would have caught it and at a size that would blow up nicely!





My feelings are as follows:

It was not a balloon due to its straight and determined flight path, its speed, and its size which is difficult for me to work out though it gave me the immediate impression that it was large, say 3 plus meters across. This impression was formed due to my experience of observing aircraft at altitude and distance (ex RAAF and keen follower of Air Force displays) and my rather good view over the Amberley area from my street in Sadliers Crossing.

It seemed rigid – as if it was a solid globe structure.

It did not immediately cause me to think it was unusual as I have seen much in the way of junk flying around in the sky especially paper and plastic bags! It was the fact that it was so straight and purposeful in flight that grabbed my interest.





Logical answers.? Nuh. Can’t think of any. And I’ll tell you what it reminded me of, early in the peace - that footage of the ball flying across the fields in the crop circles documentary that is available on DVD! Except the object I saw was much clearer than the one as presented on that DVD and traveled dead straight!



That’s it!!!

like a glass fishing bouy, spherical, clear and thick glass. It flew straight as a dye. the air show was over Saturday and Sunday and 75,000 attended. Youo could think that it was a device checking out the activities which were much greater than is normal. It is our F111 base also with F/A 18 Hornets, C130, Hawks, P-3 Orions, Seahawk choppers etc and Caribous but there were many more different aircraft there for the two days.

Full Description & Details

Eran las 02:45 am, cuando una luz, muy tenue, se encontraba sobre un cerro la cual me causo cuidado por la hora que era.

Le indique a mi compañero que habia una luz sobre el cerro, y que podia ser un camion, que sepodia caer, ya que se encontraba muy cerca del borde de este. Cuando derrepente esta luz comenzo a moverse y empezo como a bajar hacia la falda del cerro, y yo exclame ¡ se va a caer! , cuando esta luz, de un solo golpe, volvio a la punta del cerro....

Todos los que en ese momento estabamos mirando, que ya eran 20 aprox. nos quedamos mirando unos a otros sin dar explicacion a lo que pasaba. Cuando otra vez comendo a hacer el mismo movimiento esta luz extraña.

Esto paso aproximadamente 3 veces, y depronto cuando comenzaba a hacer el mismo movimiento, para nuestra sorpresa comenzo a avanzar hacia nosotros y algunos se asustaron mucho , al grado que querian retirarse del lugar donde nos encontrabamos trabajando, apagamos las luces del taller y fue una gran sorpresa ver la forma eliptica que tenia esta luz que depronto cambio de forma.

Aproximadamente este objeto media unos 25 metros y se encontraba a uno 500 metros de nosotros, esto lo se por que tuve instruccion militar por mas de dos años.

tenia un movimiento ocilante, osea que nunca estuvo detenido en el aire completamente.

Cuando estabamos observando este objeto en todo su esplendor, comenzaron a sonar una especie de motores muy fuerte, como turbinas, y nos causo cuidado ya que este objeto no metio bulla en ningun momento, y fue mas sorpresa cuando aparecieron dos aviones caza de la fuerza aerea, ya que nos encontrabamos muy cerca de la base aerea de cerro moreno, aqui en Antofagasta. El objeto hizo un movimiento muy brusco hacia el norte y luego hacia el sur, como buscando algo, y luego desaparecio frente a nosotros con un movimiento hacia arriba dejando una especie de rocio callendo como gotas de agua de color calipso y violeta.

Summary:

Just after dusk, after leaving my first job in California @ KTVU ch 2 in Oakland, i looked up at the Oakland Tribune building to check the time, and instead saw a UFO.

Full Description & Details

I remember leaving the station after work, and glancing up at the Tribune tower for a simple "time check". The evening was crisp, and the low cloud cover was spotty. The first thing i saw was two red lights about the size of softballs, spaced wide apart and connected to a very dark "thinnish" shape of some sort. .. long, thin, and "certainly thinner than an airplane or helicoter ought to be".. i remember thinking.

I continued walking to the car, while looking up at the Tribune tower clock..and when i reached the car (an old grey, late 50's Nash Rambler, a loaner, from the husband of long time Bay Area newsperson Belva Davis)..i stopped with my hand on the drivers side door handle, and watched the following event..

....The "UFO" seemed to be "playing a game" of trying to balance itself on some " invisible fulcrum point", some 100-200 feet above the American flag. After about three minutes, the vehicle (it was a solid object) seemed to "slip" out of it's "balance perch"..and began to rock back and forth in a falling leaf fashion...as it did, it began to rock faster and faster until it resembled a giant sized " baby's cradle" rocking so fast in the air until the spotlight illuminating the American flag, made the UFO look like a half moon.. floating just above the Tribune building!

...the rocking began to slow down after about 50 seconds...the "half moon effect ended soon after, ...the red lights on both ends turned off, and the now dark shaped

object began to slowly drift off in a south easterlydirection, in a direction i fgured that would take it over the Nimitz freeway, and in the general direction of the city of Alameda.

Seeing the UFO moving, i decided to follow it... as best i could, i kept it in view until i and the object, reached an area where the Alameda tunnel (northward to Oakland ) becomes Harrson street. I got out of the car and watched as it aproached, slowly, and completely dark, and floated silently over a small city park which at that time had a couple of old railroad cars . The underside looked "like the belly of a whale"!.. all of which made no "physical sense".. based on what i had just seen moments earlier!, "up closer" this object looked nowhere near as "nimble" as it had before!

The UFO was huge! easily as big around as a large submarine, but not as bulbous as the Goodyear blimp. It was completely silent...the only noise i heard in the Harrison street / Alameda tube area at the time was the sound of a passing locomotive somewhere close by. The object drifted overhead and over the Nimitz freeway...i lost track of the UFO at that point. I then drove over to the Alameda end of the Posey tube hoping to see it again, but i never did.

Full Description & Details

I have a piece of land (about 18 acres) at Talca , 3.5 h from Santiago where I have my horses. I carried that a sony video camara to film my new born colt, when my land helper and I were walking to film the new colt (because my wife and daughter couldn't come abut they want to know him), I saw at the sky a rare object and started flilming until was gone. When I pass to a big video to show my wife and daughter, and playing with the slow motion effect, it is possible to visualize a romboid shape with a light bulb at each corner. I check by internet if someone had saw something similar and a person from Oklahoma reported on September of that year the same thing I filmed.

Full Description & Details

I was walking in the wooded area arround my house think about life in general when I saw a reflection if the distance. Did not really give it a lot of attention until I saw that it was moving closer at a reapid speed. Initially I thought it was a traffic helicopter but when it got close enough for me to make it out I saw it was much larger and moved much quicker and with making any noise then any helicopter or any aircraft I have ever seen. It floated arround my area for about 45 min then shot away at least mach 2 or 3 with out causeing a sonic boom. I had a set of Binocs with me be i caould make out no windows, wings doors or engines on the shell of the object. The only thing I saw was that it was a higly reflective silver color and felt like it was studing me as much as I was it. The only blemish on it was a dark green almost black area near the "front" about mid way up. It seem to absorb the light srround it. When I got home I was extremly tired like I had been running for hours but at the same time felt exilatrated and at peace. Almost like I was "high" but I did not then or now do any drugs. I tried to explain it to my ex-wife but she just thought I was joking so I told no one else about it til now. I had all but for gotten about it until I had seen the movie the forgotten and the way the clouds looked that day looked like the way the clounds did in the movie not the same but close.

Full Description & Details

October 2nd, 2004

Koh Samui, Thailand.

I am sure that you receive many reports and sightings every day, and what my fiancé and I witnessed on Friday October 1st may turn out to have a perfectly normal explanation.

However, at around midnight of that night I was looking across at one of the neighbouring islands when I noticed two strange lights moving across the sky. They were orange in colour and large, resembling the glow of street lights. There was no sign of navigational lights typical of commercial aircraft. They were moving at a steady pace without sound at a height of between two and three thousand feet.

Almost as soon as I noticed them I went to wake my fiancé. As she came out six more lights had appeared in the sky. These six were grouped together moving at exactly the same speed about a mile behind the first two. As these lights proceeded to fly pass I could see another two following behind the group at a distance of about half a mile for the first and about a mile for the last. (See picture below).



I am not sure what we saw that night. All in all it must have taken about five minutes from start to finish for the lights to move across our field of vision. It was unlike anything I have seen before, the strangest thing being the absolute silence.

Is there a logical explanation for what we saw?

Does my description match up with either something known or something someone has experienced before?

Shown below is a diagram giving a rough guide of the flight path.



I would be grateful for any answers you could provide. I did try to photograph the incident and took 5 shots. However, when I tried to have the pictures developed, nothing came out. I have retained the negetives.

Kind regards

Full Description & Details

I proceeded along the semi-rural road at the edge of the developed area of Lee's Summit north of LSNorth High School. There were other cars right before and behind me, none of them noticing. From the parallax view given by my motion, I estimate the object was hovering about 1 mile west of the north-south road, was about 50m tall, 35m wide. the parallax view let me know it wasn't an optical illusion, was indeed a solid and radially symmetrical object some distance away... but it disappeared in an instant after about 2 minutes.

Full Description & Details

A red object appears near the full moon that day, which the camara has updated of course. I saw this ball turning on at the right side of the moon, but I thought this was a plane, later this came slowly to the bottom of the moon, and starts lighting as a flashing light, but with slow motion, then I told my sister to record it. This object moved to the left side of the moon, and started moving in some kind of motion. It looks as a ring rotating, and in the center the color seems white or yellow. But later it seems to fall down, and everyone who was looking at it, of course, because I told everyone. We though it was like an atomic bomb, or something like that, not because of the way it looked. But because it was falling at high speed, before this starts falling, the camara catched another object far away flashing ones. But is just like one second turned on. Which means that in real motion this will not be seen by human eyes. After this felt or went far away, this disappeared until it became invisible. I hope you get interested on this video.

The entire island of Puerto Rico was without electricity, because Hurricane Georges passed through the Island the night before. I woke up to open the gate for my daughter (she was working) of my parent's house and I saw it. There were lights in different colors. It was a big thing because I did not have my glasses and I could see the lights (like a merry-go-round). I did not talk about that, but 7 months after that night I was listening to the radio and I heard that an UFO (OVNI for us) was seen that night in Canóvanas and San Juan and it was the night after the Hurricane Georges.
