Date: June 02 2010
Number of witnesses: 3
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Spherical
Could your sighting be a UFO balloon/lantern?: No
Weather Conditions: Clear blue sky, calm, bright Summer evening
Description: Object came from Greystones direction to NTMK and seemed to changed direction to North towards the Wicklow/Dublin Mountains. When the object was overhead it was dark and spherical in shape but seemed to flash between black and red intermittently.
As object got further away it seemed stop above Kilmac/Glen O'Downs/Kilpeddar area. It appeared to have a reflective metalic sheen from the sun and seemed to disappear and reappear intermittently.
I recorded most of this on a camcorder.
UFOINFO Note: The original footage was recorded on a Sony handheld video camera (cassette tapes) and the witness kindly got her brother-in-law to convert it to digital format for me. Two versions of the footage were sent in, the original footage and an enlarged close-up.
I have made lower quality versions of the footage available below in the players as the original files are around 49MB and 53.5MB and might also be too large at 960 x 540 pixels to display correctly on the website for some monitors. For those who want to see the original files I have made them available for direct viewing or download below - John @ UFOINFO.
Original movie: 100602NMKoriginal.mov (49.1MB)
Closeup movie: 100602NMKcloseup.mov (53.5MB)
My thanks to the witness and her brother-in-law for taking the time to convert the video for me.
