UFO Sighting Report




Honolulu, Hawaii, United States


Bright object with exceptional speed and navigational manuvers

Date Reported:

6/24/2006 4:58:41 PM

Sighting Time: 

10 PM



No. of Witnesses: 



10 seconds

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

like a bright moving star erratically moving about the night skies

Size of Object(s)

Looking at the nightsky from within our automobile, it was like a larger bright star, maybe like the planet Venus when it is visible from our planet.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

Maybe 2000-3000 feet high?

Description of Area / Surroundings

Urban, clear night sky, about 70F, lot full of parked cars at a now defunct Drive In outdoor movie theater

Full Description & Details

I was with my family at the Waialae Drive In in the 1960s. It has been demolished and residential properties now use the land. The drive in was located where the present upscale Kahala Shopping Center now is across the way.

The movie must have not been very good as I was instead gazing at the night sky which was cloudless and full of stars. However one was extra bright and caught my attention. Suddenly it zipped across the sky, then dived, and without decelerating, made a perfect right angle manuver, racing across at a lower horizontal level. Then suddenly, it zoomed off at an upwards angle and disappeared. At that moment I knew it was no airplane or helicopter because of the high rate of speed, wasn't a meteor as it ascended at the end, and that it was of intelligent navigation because of the right angle path trajectory.

In "The UFO Book -Encyclopedia of the Extraterrestrial" by Jerome Clark, I note that there are 3 instances of the right angle manuver of UFOs (one on a radar screen). I submit here a fourth instance of this particular airborne manuver.

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

not the rapid acceleration across the sky (3,000 mph?) or the perpendicular flight path at high speed

Witness Background

Dentist, Digital Artist, Psychologist

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

After this personal experience, I've become more "open-minded." I read nothing about UFOs before the sighting.

Other Comments

Evidently UFOs are still interested in the Hawaiian Islands as a friend of mine claims he has digital photos of a recent sighting (Aina Haina Valley, East Honolulu) in November, 2006. I have not seen them but will be taking these photos to the UFO Museum & Research Center next week when I attend the UFO Festival. It will be the first time I travel to Roswell.
