Tokyo, Japan Four Discs - A Daylight Sighting

Date: October 19, 2004 ?
Time: 2:00 p.m.

Message: Hello, I was in Tokyo a couple weeks ago and in the middle of the day saw these four discs that countless other people saw. I am back home in NYC now and trying to google info or articles about the possible sighting but I am not very good at searching or can't find the newspapers or sites. Can you please lead me to some websites that might have reported this incident so I can read more about it. I think the date was Oct. 19 or the day before or after. Thanks.

Additional Information:

Hi there, here is the info you requested. Thanks for trying to help out! Best.

Q. - Could you be kind enough to tell me what the weather conditions were at the time of sighting. Was it sunny? Overcast? Raining?

A. - Very bright and sunny but very high up there were clouds. Not puffy clouds but thin stretched over a long distance-type clouds. A typhoon was coming in a day or so but it was so bright and blaring you wouldn't think so. I remember it being VERY bright.

Q. - In what part of the sky was the UFO located? North, South, East, West? On the horizon or straight overhead or somewhere in between?

A. - Directly overhead.

Q. - Did the UFO move? How far and how fast? Describe its movements in detail as best you can.

A. - People were looking up, so we did too (three of us friends). They didn't appear to move for about a minute, but rather were very still in the sky, high up. They slowly seemed to be floating all together, mostly retaining the shape they were in, which I describe below. They all of a sudden, two were not there. I might have looked down or something, but when I looked up again, I just saw one. I had to look hard and finally saw a second one. The other two were totally gone. They were still overhead but moving in a direction I can't determine. They appeared to be hovering, yet moving slowly. Then both of those two were also gone. We left. Many people saw this, as they were stopping and staring and pointing. A security car with two guards came by and stopped and looked as well. Soon one security guard was on the radio/walkie talkie talking to someone and the other had binoculars, looking.

Q. - Would you please describe the appearance of the objects, size, shape, color and distance away from your location. Also was there any sound heard ?

A. - There were four circular discs, they were very close to each other and made up the four points/corners of what I would consider a trapezoid shape in the sky, a square/tight, small rectangle but with one or two sides longer/shorter than the other two. They appeared to be all the same size and distance from us, none seemed larger than the others. Shape was completely round and appeared like discs, flat. They were identical in shape and size, but one had more glare to it and they seemed to be going in the direction that it was "facing," they all seemed otherwise smooth and shiny, and silver color. The bright one was the only one I saw the entire time.

Q. - Describe the area in which you made the sighting. Is it near an airport? An Air Force Base? A military or research installation of any kind?

A. - In a large open space on top of a small hill in the middle of Tokyo. There are two airports in Tokyo that I know of. One is to the east and north of where we saw them. The other airport if farther away and south.

Q. - Were there any aircraft near or in the area at the time of the sighting ?

A. - NO

Q. - If you can add anymore to this event, this would be great.

A. - We were in the public gardens of the imperial palace, where tourists and locals concentrate to enjoy the large garden where you can sit on the grass, etc. We were leaving, it was around 2:00 p.m. or so. We noticed local, older people in their late 60's or early 70's looking up at the sky and pointing. Other people started to look up, so there was a smattering of both locals and tourists looking up at the sky and seeing this. I've never had this kind of experience so only in hindsight did I really think about strange it was what we saw. I was with two friends, one is 65 and the other, 31, was carrying her 2 yr old. We all saw the discs. I can't recall exactly, but we also experienced earthquake tremors in the middle of the night during the same week. A week after we left is when the big earthquake occurred.

Thank you to the witness for the report.

HBCC UFO Research Note: If anyone else had witnessed this event, would they please be kind enough to contact me with details on this sighting. Thank you. Brian.
