Shape: Disk
Duration:1 hour
Summary : Sky show of approximately 30 ufos 'cavorting' for 1 hour over Nile river at Aswan,Egypt.

Myself & 2 others witnessed a l hour 'sky show' of round bright objects overhead.We were on the top deck of a boat on the Nile River at Aswan, Egypt. We were with a tour to see the event of Haley's comet leaving earth that day. It was too hazy to see the comet,so we watched the clear sky overhead. Lights started to appear & move at great speed in all directions & angles. We counted at least 30 or more. It was like play, as there was no pattern to moves. They cavorted all around each other. This lasted 1 hour. Just before dawn,about 5 am, one craft broke away & swooped down towards us at great speed. It did a pass over our heads & disappeared into the dawn sky very fast. It showed us a definate round flat disc as it came close. It appeared like a celebration at the exact time of the comet's last view from earth. It was awesome. The observers were the Tour leader, myself a registered nurse & another registered nurse. I have observed other ufo displays similar to this, but have never seen the disc so clearly or low. In the dim dawn light, it appeared kind of brownish colored. It moved too fast to see any other details.
