Appearance / Description of Object(s)
Looked like a milk white bulb. Moved great distances in sudden bursts. Impossible moves by anything man made. No trail of smoke or any thing like that. No flicker. Horizon hopping in straight lines in fraction of a second. When I tilted my head and said what I said, it immediately started growing smaller in size. I felt that somebody/something realized that they were being observed and wanted to leave the place.
Size of Object(s)
Probably half inch across. Could not estimate the real size.
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
Height of an aircraft doing a go around or approaching for landing.
Description of Area / Surroundings
Air side of Chennai airport. Next to a military training academy.
Full Description & Details
My name is JL Mannam. I work in the security department of an international airline. One night, i was on the night shift along with a colleague who was my subordinate. His name is Mr. Muthu, a security guard and very respectable gentleman. Because of a spate of pilferage reports on a remote bay called Bay 10, my boss had instructed me and Mr. Muthu to take frequent rounds of the area. It was probably around 2 or 3 am in the night. Because of the gap of almost 20 years, I am a little vague on details but what happened was broadly as follows.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
Nothing man made can move the distances it did in such short times. Have we seen some thing like a fire fly and imagined it to be some thing else. Unlikely because of the distances involved and the final moving away which was straight up.
JL Mannam, B.Com Joined airline security as supervisor in 1992. Now I am a Deputy Manager. Still doing the same Job
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
Have read some fiction. A science fiction fan. Subsequent to this incident, I started extensive reading on UFOs because I have an experience that made me believe I have seen one.
In retrospection, it looked like it was taking a survey of the airport.
