UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: US Virgin Islands

Date: 2 January 2005 0330 GMT

Approach Direction: Not approaching

Departure Direction: South West

Witness Direction: South

Description: I was on a boat South of the Island of St. Thomas. I noticed an extremely bright objet in the sky just to my right. It was about 30 degrees up from the horizon and I noticed it moving against the back drop of stars. It was very far away yet still huge and bright as I watched it travel away from Earth and to the South a little. It wasn't a falling object since the craft went outward away from the horizon and seemingly out of the atmosphere. The lights may have been from rocket propulsion as it twinkled slightly and seemed to light up the sky around it. It looked very similar to the rockets that take off from Canaveral after they have acsended for a few minutes. It was without a doubt technoligically advanced and it left the gravitational field of the Earth.

Height & Speed: 30 to 40 degrees above the horizon. It departed the Earth's atmosphere in an upward Southerly direction in a massive ball of light that light up the sky from what may have been hundreds of miles away.
