Appearance / Description of Object(s)
the object was "cloaked" that is we could see the stars through it, and we might not have noticed it but for the sound.
Size of Object(s)
Hard to say, perhaps several hundred feet in diameter
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
My impression was that it was about 200 ft directly overhead.
Description of Area / Surroundings
I was a beach area, the dunes were 4-6 ft in height, directly in front of us and between us and the ocean. There was a town perhaps 20-30 kilometers down the road, near the Portuguese/Spanish border (south coast)
Full Description & Details
My wife and I spent 8 years travelling in Europe, playing renaissance music in the north (germany, switzerland, france) in the summers, and vacationing in greece or portugal in the winters. We often camped either with fellow vacationers, or as was the case this time, we sought a little privacy, and more deserted beaches.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
Not unless mankind has developed cloaking technology. Someone once suggested that it was a flock of birds....but it was my sincere belief, and continues to be that this was not a natural phenomenon.
College graduate, music. Renaissance musician....instrument builder.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I've always believed that the chances of intelligent life on other planets was a statistical likelyhood. Saying that, I never expected to have any such experience. I'm glad it happened, and wish they'd make their presence more widely known. I never read much about ufo's prior to the experience. Afterword, I was curious to find out if anyone else had experienced a "cloaked" ship before. Thankfully, we weren't the first, although it does seem ro be rare.....whatever that might mean.
