So I don't know if you like to discuss stories or not without video or picture, but hey, here's my little sighting anyway.

So I went on holiday to the Costa del Sol, Spain with family as my uncle lives out there, and stayed in my uncle's villa. One of the nights, I was sat out on the balcony with my uncle just looking at the sky, talking about all sorts of space things lol.. Then all of a sudden my uncle points this object out in the sky, there was a big white ball of light nearly the size of the moon in the sky. Slowly it moved straight downwards in terms of vision whilst dimming at the same time until it had almost completely disappeared, at which point it shot off at a completely different direction, diagonally upwards and left, towards the north-west at what I can only describe as the speed of light, it left a beam of light which deteriorated almost immediately after. Now I'm a logical person and I could not find a single answer for that.. any ideas?

Yep, that sounds like a UFO alright. I've seen something I can't explain as well, it was over 30 years ago and I still don't have a good explanation.

Yeah I'm guessing most people that have seen similar things most likely will never have a true explanation.. I mean unless some kind of alien come and says hey, that was us :D lol. I wish I could have a big read thru all of the classified ufo documents about all of the crashes/mass sightings in the past.. I mean, they must know something, or why cover all this stuff up.. I bet I saw a weather balloon eh? ;)

welcome aboard, Sp3ctre.

First of all, i want to let you know that whenever you claim something on this here forum,
it's always better to back it upwith some evidence at least.
There's ****loads of people claiming the most far-out stuff,
either never coming back on answers afterwards or turning out to be a little...uhhm...crazy.
Second, this is not a believers-only forum, and there's some fierce and well-educated
skeptics around that will read posts with very close scrutiny. Nonsense posters will usually get eaten alive...

Anyway, my reason to write back is that about 15 years ago, i had almost the same sighting, only out of a driving car with 3 others seeing it, too. we took it for a helicopter lowering down over the car first, but then we stopped to see wtf is going on,but we didn't hear any sound. As soon as the car had stopped, the light disappeared in exactly the way you described.

this is the first time i post that experience here, and only because it's so strikingly similar. Cool

Thank you for that post, that's fine I'm not one of those kind of people haha, I just wanted to share my experience somewhere, I wish I did have some evidence.

As you say with yours, mine also made no noise, something that seems very common in the ufo world.

I'm one of the people who are just amazed by this sort of thing, I mean unless the government has a top secret kind of spaceship, which I highly doubt, it has to be something of intelligent origin.. What or where it came from.. I do not know.. and there are so many similar stories just like mine, and some with a lot more evidence. These cases can't be simply forgotten, there has to be something more to it..

There have been some documentaries on the discovery science channel recently which I've been watching, alien mysteries I think it's called. There are lots of different cases and some of them are really interesting and have a lot of facts to back them up, a case in Rendlesham forest in the UK for instance where two army men are supposedly abducted on Christmas 1980. Worth a watch at the least.

i'm pretty sure you'll get a lot of answers from all perspectives, but probably no explanation. I'm still puzzeld by the event after all these years, but i never found out what it was. (if i'd have been alone i'd probably simply have thought i had one drink too much ;) )
Just don't make the conclusion UFO=alien spaceship. A weird light in the sky can have pretty earthbound origins.
Just check out some recent threads in the UFO subforum, then you'll see what i mean.... :tu:

Here is what can only be described as a somewhat poor rendition of an object flying above the town of Benidorm in Alicante, Spain (Costa Blanca) that I observed a few weeks ago. The hard outlines of the object are an artifact from using Word Art and in fact their were no hard edges to what I saw. The smaller orange coloured circles at the Loci of the larger elipse were glowing (not pulsing) and the larger Elipse appeared to to be substantially  composed by a plasma- type fluorescecnce.

Thats it, I could not identify what I saw, could not guage its size or height with any degree of accuracy (night-time), except that it appeared to be half the size of the rooftop of the hotel it flew over (so in excess of 70 metres in length), it flew at a steady, almost leisurely speed (possibly approx 100Knots), made no manoeuvres at all, displayed no Navigation Lights at all, and left no discernible exhaust trail or sound.

If somebody can tell me how to upload a JPEG of the drawing I made of the object I will be glad to do so..

OK, this is officially "strange". I just made a post recounting a sighting that I experienced on the Costa Blanca just a couple of weeks ago and it has now...disappeared  :unsure2:  was it intercepted by :alien: ???

Hey! Just noticed that it is back again :unsure2: :unsure2: :unsure2:

Managed to upload a Gif image of the object I saw in the below post...

Hi Sp3ctre and a warm welcome to the site buddy. :tu:
You came to the right place alright, there are loads of us that like nothing better than to hear of a strange sighting straight from the horses mouth [so to speak]...Would you mind just filling in a couple of blank spaces in your testimony my friend?....such as the exact location and date of sighting.
And also could you elaborate a little as to the duration of the event...an estimation of proximity to the 'light/object' ...and was it completely white?...plus, I know that you said that the object 'faded as it descended but  was it's luminosity even...or did it pulsate or flicker in any manner?...Did you notice if  there were any other witnesses in the area? [neighbouring Villa's etc]...and when the object sped off at this phenomenal speed [leaving the bright streak] did the luminosity of the object itself increase...decrease...or stay constant?

.....and it would be appreciated if you could think of any other detail that you haven't so far mentioned!


Cheers Buddy.

When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.

Thank you for the welcome :) right, down to business, I'll try to answer your questions as best as I can, although as for the date I do not remember the exact date though I will try to work it out and I'll update when I have. As for location it was in Benal Madena, I'm not from Spain so I do not know the district's etc. The duration, well it wasn't very long, it must have lasted around 10-15 seconds at most. It seemed to be very distant at first although it was very large, and it seemed to get closer even as the light was decreasing, I couldn't be too sure but at its lowest point, right before it took off, it seemed to be around 3-4,000 metres altitude at an estimate. I couldn't really tell. As to the speed of the decrease in light it was very smooth as if turning down a dim light. When it shot off it seemed to flash slightly and the beam was there for a second or so and just vanished as one, I mean, the beam didn't have a chance to fade the way that a smoke trail from a plane would, it just instantly disappeared after a second. As for other witnesses in the area, I would have loved to ask people, though being on holiday I didn't know anyone in the area, it was around 3 am too so I don't imagine many people were awake watching the skies. I would love to hear of someone else who saw it though. I can't think of much else detail-wise though I will update when I have worked out the date. I believe it was around the 20th June though I might be completely wrong, I'll work it out though :)

hi Sp3tre that is an interesting sighting.  

What i find of particular interest is the beam of light.  I have posted about the light streak I saw in NZ elsewhere in the forum so if you dont mind...

It was night time, yellowish white and instantaneous.  It disappeared as fast as it appeared.

Something travelled from A to B leaving an intense light trail for a split second and this is the important bit.... it disappeared from point A all the way to point B at the same speed it had appeared. Lightening fast.  It reappeared at a right angle 20 sec or so later and did the exact same thing.  What is odd of my sighting is the object that made the light beam was not visible.

The only other way I can help anyone reading this understand is if you hold a coiled spring in your left hand, stretch it at arms length with your right hand then let go with your left.  

Did the beam you see have similar characteristics?

Interesting post, doesn't sound like an attention grab at all, just someone who saw something they can't quite explain.  Frankly, I like this thread better than some of the "picture" threads where the pictures are so bad hehe, so thanks for posting it.

I'm  not going to guess about what you saw, but I do believe you saw something odd, which is pretty cool in and of itself.  I personally think most if not all legitimate sightings are linked to one of two things:

1 - actual craft of some sort, either normal or top secret stuff.

2 - unexplained atmospheric anomolies.  (could be as simple as seeing venus, or as comlex as atmospheric plasma etc.)

The second one is of great interest to me, but it doesn't sound like yours was a "nature related" sighting.
