Appearance / Description of Object(s)
At a closer look it looked like a giant amoeba flowing on air. Spreading and contracting, moving along with the help of the wind current. It looked like an alive cloud. I could see its texture. It was not metallic. It was one body of thick smoke-like substance, fluid. There was only just a smaller satellite "ball" of this stuff that was spinning right behind the bigger body, as if it was attached to it by an invisible thread. I still do not understand what I saw. When it flew over the campus it disappeared behind the hills of Kavala. It was not balloons as light could not pass through it and it was not birds as there was absolutely no noise. It was not man made as I do not recognize any material like metal or plastic or glass that humans use to make flying devises. It looked alive or organic. And when the taxi arrived to pick me up, everything returned to normality. Nobody in town seemed alarmed by its appearance. There was nothing in the local or national news about this and the people in the city went on their normal business. So I thought it was something normal. Perhaps some gas escaping from a near by factory. But a gas would dissolve in the air, wouldn't it?
Size of Object(s)
It was moving like an amoeba in the sky, the size of a medium sized whale, flowing effortlessly with the help of the wind.
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
Not sure. It was at least 1 km above the ground I stood.
Description of Area / Surroundings
A hill above the city of Kavala. Urban area below, harbor, sea, and university campus. Hills, forest and factories behind the campus.
Full Description & Details
I was visiting a friend in Kavala's University, a city in the northern province of Eastern Macedonia-Thrace in northern Greece. I was serving my military service in the Greek-Turkish borders and they gave me 3 days off to go and visit my family that at the time was living in Drama, another small Greek city near the Greek-Bulgarian borders. On the way I stopped for one day visit to my childhood friend and his girlfriend that were both studying in Kavala. I stayed at their campus room that was in the university's campus on the top of a hill above the city. We had some drinks. I only drank two cans of beer, not enough in my opinion to make me hallucinate or see things that are not there.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
No. Not in my understanding. Perhaps a more experienced person or a scientist can solve this mystery once and for all for me.
Then I was just serving my service in the Greek army, as a Greek national. Now I have migrated to Ireland, where I live for the past 8 years. I work in the public sector. Back in Greece I was working in the Greek customer service/ hotel/tourism industry.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
Still a skeptic. But open to anything. UFO sightings usually describe an object that resembles a craft. Metallic with lights. Something that could be built by man or extraterrestrials This is was not built by anything........ Apparently.
