UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Mauna Kea just below visitors center
Date: October 17 09
Time: Approx. 6:40pm
Number of witnesses: 2 that I know of
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Round
Weather Conditions: Clear, new moon around twilight in the upper southwestern sky above Mauna Loa.
Description: It was twilight and there was just a bit of brightness left on the horizon. Just a handful of the brightest stars were visible in the west and it was a bit darker overhead. I raised my head and looked up a bit. It seemed as if one of the brightest stars in the sky was moving upward towards 11 o'clock. It remained a constant intensity for 20 seconds or so then seemed to pick up speed and disappear. I've seen meteors, it was too slow and moving in the wrong direction. I've seen satellites, too bright and too quick. The best conclusion I could come to was some type of rocket testing on one of the pacific atolls or small islands but there wasn't a hint of red or even orange in the color and no tail whatsoever. If anybody saw this or has any theories please contact me. It was a new moon and it was so close to the best stargazing spot on Earth that someone else had to see it.
