UFO Sighting Report - New Zealand

May 14th 2008 : Christchurch

Christchurch, New Zealand A Very Bright Solid Light

Date: May 14, 2008
Time: 5:57 p.m.

Location of Sighting: Bromley looking towards Estuary to the SSE.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Couldn't tell, one very bright light.

Full Description of event/sighting: A very bright solid light traveling through the sky at about 2/3rds of the height of a tree in our yard which was about 25 feet from where I was standing, it looked roughly to be 2 to 2.5 km's away over the estuary, it traveled to the southwest for approximately 15 seconds and went behind the tree, after repositioning to be able to see the light it could no longer be observed and yet the skies were clear in all directions there was no detectable noise and the light did not flash at all it just moved from one point in the sky to another point in the sky and wasn't there any more.

I couldn't estimate its speed but if I held up my finger I could trace a line through the sky at a reasonable speed and keep track with it, certainly faster however than any aircraft I have ever observed and also for an aircraft it would be in the wrong place as the airport is north of here on the other side of the city. Sometimes aircraft will come in from the east on a nor east heading but they have multiple blinking lights this did not.

After this 15 second period the light was simply not there and could not be viewed from either vantage point.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
