That's the nearest thing I can think of too.

These stories are silly, only thing different from an member starting a thread is most anonymous posters will nevetr answer any ones questions.

It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route to find out what really happened.

I lived in Gibraltar from 1992 -95…The place is a living nightmare for those who cherish peace & quiet…Talk about honking car horns. Jeez!

Anyhow! While there the strangest thing which I happened to see one night was an oblong shaped / dark coloured air-craft gliding slowly and quietly across the sky-line not too far from the rock peak, heading towards La Linea.

The only other strange things which I’d heard about regarding Gibraltar was the occasional ghost story where-upon certain living areas / flats were haunted.

However considering there’s a problem with drug dealers over there…I wouldn’t be too surprised if they’ve found a novel way to float their stuff about via drones.

I can't explain what you saw but it was strange to you so I can't say your story is silly. What I don't like is skeptical folks barking like mutts and criticizing everything like they have the answer. What I will tell you is someone who post may be the one who can truly decipher what you saw or may have experienced the same thing so you never know. Your experience was real and in my opinion whatever you think it was stick to that everybody on this post was not there so continue to research and ask questions. There will always be a flock of skeptics with criticism but claim they don't believe but are constantly posting everyday for what reason I don't know. Thanks for the story maybe one day an alien ship will abduct their ass and the will come full circle.

Yes! of course, lets dismiss all possible mundane explanations and go straight to the paranormal or extraterrestrial because that's logical. I have no doubt that his experience was real as well, what I do doubt is the fact that there isn't a perfectly reasonable explanation for what he saw. Oh boy, watch out for the big bad skeptics and their criticism, logic and reason because using your brains can be deadly! Skeptics post every day for the same reason that you do, because this is a discussion forum and people are free to express their opinions and experiences, even those who haven't been abducted by an alien ship. :alien:  Though the quote in your avatar is a tell all to your stance on everything, maybe you should start doubting a little bit, it might lead to a bit of critical thinking and education.

Believing when there is no compelling evidence is a mistake.  The idea is to withhold belief until there is compelling evidence and if the universe does not comply with our predispositions, okay, then we have the wrenching obligation to accommodate to the way the universe really is.  - Carl Sagan

Seems like someone’s got their undies bunched up for nothing.

If the O.P had been read through properly then it would have been made clear that the following statement was made: -  I would certainly appreciate any input into what others think this may have been.

Hence folk responded with other ideas…The majority of which I would not perceive as made with malice.

A kite with a canine skull and matted hair sounds very silly and unlikely. It wouldn't be able to get off the ground first of all. Secondly the OP mentioned that the thing was flying and not quite drifting, if you get the drift!

To OP I haven't a clue what it was but there are strange enough things in the world. All puzzles.
