UFO Sighting Report - Switzerland

April 19th 2008 : Berne

Berne, Switzerland Orange Light

Date: April 19, 2008
Time: 9:20 p.m.

Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Star-like, orange light.

Full Description of event/sighting: About 30 to 40 degrees above horizon. The object first seemed to fly in the viewers direction. (The light's getting brighter.) After about a minute the pretty strong light faded away, object disappeared. Sky was clear, no clouds, near to or full moon. The length of the observation about 1 to 1 1/2 minute. I expected a copter/airplane because we have some copter traffic due to a hospital nearby and the object stood still for about 20 seconds. (the brightness of the light source doesn't changed any more). But the copter/airplanes have blinking lights an much more to white. This orange light was constant. No blinks.

It probably was a manned balloon, but I'm unsure if they would get a permission here for a nightfly. Maybe a late landing procedure? But it still remains a question why using the burner that high off the ground for more than a minute and then take no further action. That make no sense to me but is the only rational explanation.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
