Please note that the reports in this section have been submitted to UFOINFO/UFO ROUNDUP and accepted in good faith. No investigation has been carried out by UFOINFO.
With the increasing use of digital cameras we are seeing more photos showing alleged 'UFOs' - many of these could be insects, cloud shapes etc. As many readers have asked to see the photos I will be using some of them and leaving it up to the individual to make up their own mind - John @ UFOINFO.
Sept 8th 2006 to Sept 15th 2006 : Vale do lobo, Algarve
UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Vale do lobo, Algarve, Portugal
Date: Sept 8th 2006 to Sept 15th 2006
Approach Direction: North
Departure Direction: East
Witness Direction: Various
Description: Witnessed whilst on holiday. Must have seen this object some 5 or 6 days out of 7 during the 2nd week of my holiday when the sky was clear. Three Other members of family witnessed also. It generally appeared in the North always in the same place, just after dark and stayed stationary most of the time but once saw it move from North to east in about 20 minutes, and disappeared from view over the Atlantic.
Other times it would start in the north and say 2 hrs later just show up in the south a few hours later. I.E we would watch for a while then look again at a later time and it had moved. It did not look very big and strange thing was that appeared to flash and change shape or should I say seemed to be making zig zag movements slightly up and down when focused in on x 7 with binoculars.
[Zig zag movements possibly caused by zoom if binoculars or arms were not supported on a steady surface - John @ UFOINFO.]
2 other members of out group are very sceptic but even they were baffled by these sightings !
Color/Shape: White ball with red + blue intermittent flashes. Also when focused in on with high powered binoculars, appeared to be zig zagging. I would say though, to the naked eye it looked like only a star.
Height & Speed: Must have been 20,000 ft at least maybe 30,000 and only saw it move once from North to East in a slow but straight line.
