João Pessoa, Tambau Brazil A Triangular Shaped Object
Date: January 18, 2007
Time: 11:50 p.m. (+3 GMT)
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Triangular
Full Description of event/sighting: After having a long nap from 7:00 until 10:30 p.m. I got up and stayed awake, while my husband and daughter went to bed. I was searching the Internet for maps to locate McNaught comet (C/2006 P1) in my place (Latitude: 7° 06', South. Longitude: 34° 53', West), Joao Pessoa, Brazil. I was upset because I realized it wouldn't be easy to see the comet from here.
I went to bed thinking about the comet and stayed observing the nice spot of clear sky I have trough my large bedroom's window ( 6th floor) which is always kept open during the warm summer weather. I have a nice view from here since there are no buildings around and we are only 100 m from the beach - in fact, from my window, I am facing the sea and "Ponta do Seixas" - the eastern most point of the Americas.
There were no clouds, neither the moon and I was observing the sky and the constellations (The Southern Cross, The Great Dog, Orion...) when I suddenly spotted what, at a first sight, looked like a tiny cloud blown by the wind - I felt strange because it was moving quite fast. When I observed it properly, I have noticed its triangular shape without a clear contour made up of some faint points of white light ( I could not count how many points - may be six or seven...). The delta shaped "thing" was traveling soundless from southeast to northwest in a peculiar way with its wider angle pointing sideway (even a delta shaped airplane would not fly with one of the wings heading!). I then realized that could be a formation of orbs.
It was difficult to guess the altitude but it could be compared to a commercial plane flying at 3000 m. It soon went of my visual field (passing over my roof) - I run to the next room, facing north and in a second I could spot the triangular shape again. I observed it until it faded into the light sky of the city (away from the sea)
I doubt a person who was not intentionally watching the night sky would ever have noticed that "thing" - I had the impression it was traveling camouflaged... I must add to this report that I have an engineering background and a considerable experience in observing the sky (I was an amateurs junior astronomer while at the university).
Thank you to the witness for the report.
