UFO Sighting Report


September, 1999


Bratislava, Slovakia (Slovak Rep.)


Me and my sister saw an ufo flying very low (couldn't go lower because of nearby trees). It was flying right above our heads for couple of minutes, then accelerated very fast and disappeared out of sight.

Date Reported:

10/22/2012 3:59:34 PM

Sighting Time: 

10:00 PM



No. of Witnesses: 



7 - 20 minutes

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

It did look like a big dark circle/disc, with one red circular light in its center (1-3 m diameter) and four or five white/yellow lights around it, which looked like rectangles, but bended around the red light. They were not very close to each other, and situated a half way between the center and the edge of the ufo. No light was very bright, it was easy to stare to them. One of the white/yellow lights was always brighter than others, and they were changing this in a circle (probably clockwise, not sure) Frequency of changing the brightness was 1 - 5 seconds (not sure). (note that maybe it wasn't really dark, but it appeared to us like that, because we saw it during nighttime)

Size of Object(s)

15 - 20 m diameter (not sure)

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

A few metres above trees, I could probably throw a tennis ball to it.

Description of Area / Surroundings

See coordinates. I think that surrounding did not change a lot since then. Trees around are mostly "Aesculus hippocastanum". Floor tiles are made out of some dark stone.

Full Description & Details

I was (probably) eight years old, and my sister was six. She does remember it happened, but that is all. It was a long time ago, and I don't remember some things too, but it is just details, and I will emphasize what I am not sure about. I didn't tell about it to almost anyone so far.

Year and month specified above are approximate. I remember that it was SĽUK anniversary or some other celebration that day. It happened somewhere between 19:00 and 24:00 (22:XX ? not sure) Not many, probably 10-30 (not sure) people were celebrating outside of the SĽUK building, under a wooden shelter near it. They were sitting behind tables, talking, and (not sure) eating goulash. My parents were there. My sister and I were riding bikes in circles and in the shape of number 8, somewhere at coordinates 48.053017,17.150659 (taken from google maps). Shelter was at 48.053223,17.150691 . Suddenly, I noticed an edge of circle-shaped flying something. It was moving slowly from here: 48.052997,17.150549 , to here: 48.053078,17.150723 . It was a very slow motion, it took it approximately 5-15 minutes (not sure) to move that distance. The diameter of the circle was approximately the distance from that two points (not sure). I do not remember any noise. It was flying very low, just a few metres above the trees around us, and it covered our view of the sky (from 48.053017,17.150659). We tried to alert our parents, we wanted them to come and see it, because it was not possible from their position, but they were too busy celebrating, and did not take us seriously. Since I was not able to persuade them, and I knew that it is an ufo (aliens, yay !:D), I didn't want to waste much time, so I returned right under it (my sister too). We were watching it a quite long time, we had time to return to our parents one more time, wave to it, I had time to go away from it a bit, because I was curious how does it look like from a side (I was watching it from here: 48.052968,17.150372 , but I did not see anything interesting. I remember I was even jumping, heh... I wanted to see windows and aliens behind them:D) We did even some more circles on bikes, I think (not sure). When it was at 48.053078,17.150723, we could see only a small part of it (1/6 - 1/5), when it started to move slightly faster, and then it accelerated very fast. We could not possibly achieve that speed on our bikes. It is hard to tell exactly how fast it flew, because it disappeared in a second. I don't remember any significant sound.

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

Absolutely not. I considered even a balloon and a crane moving a cargo above our heads (no crane was there, just to make it clear)

Witness Background

I study mathematics and informatics.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

In my opinion, they are man-made aircrafts used mainly for espionage. I believed they are driven by aliens before the sighting, though. (because of movies)

Please, do not try to identify me. I provided an email which I do not use, but you can at least try to contact me thanks to it, maybe I will sometimes find your message.
