Aloha from the Big Island of Hawaii, I would like to share a series of sightings what I believe to be UFOs or advanced life form spacecraft, firstly I am your average man with a open mind, of sound mind and body, and I have nothing to gain from my observations other than to share what I saw with all people who are enterested, I was staying with my very close friends, my Hawaiian family, at there house which is adjacent to Hawaii's Volcano National Park, 19.5 Deg. Latitude, on the Island of Hawaii, my friend had been telling me for some years that he had spotted a metallic sphere that hovered at a fairly high altitude over his house, I hoped that I too may be lucky enough to see this object, On Feb. 28 2000 we where looking up at the stars at about 9.45 p.m. that evening when I spotted what looked like a flash bulb going off, we continued to watch , after a few minutes there was another flash in the same basic location, this continued with several more flashes until we saw no more, the next day on Feb.29 at 1:35 p.m. HST my friend had awaken from a nap and walked outside, he said a little voice in his head said "look up" and there it was, he yelled for me and I ran outside and it was straight up in the sky, the object was a round sphere shape which was very bright and reflective,emitting no sound, and hovering at a altitude of roughly 30 t0 35,000 feet, it's size was comparable to a jet liner, easy to spot with the naked eye, so we quickly grabbed two pairs of binoculars and laid flat on our backs and focused in on it, we watched the craft for close to 40 minutes, with the field glasses we could see the object very clearly as it moved ever so slightly from side to side, the suns reflection would move from left to right on its metallic surface as it hovered side to side, at this point we had my friends wife and mother in law watching with us, they to confirmed it was not a balloon, aircraft, or a satellite, this thing hovered, then while we were watching this thing with the field glasses it looked like! it expl oded for an instance, a fairly large vapor like cloud engulfed the craft, a perfectly round cloud, and you could see two smaller round spheres emerging from its center, two craft where now visible, they too where metallic and round and exactly one half the size of the original object, as the two craft split apart they to hovered and separated more, we continued to watch them for 5 to 10 minutes longer until they made there slow ascent into the sky, we watched them move indepentitally upward until they were out of sight, what a buzz!!!!!. The next day we rounded up a telescope and watched for the next few days, with no sightings in the day, but observed the Flashes in the night sky most every night and in different locations, some flashes where very bright, in random locations, we spotted satellites and these were totally different. Then on March 5 Th. at about 8:30 p.m. HST I was looking at the moon through the telescope and had my friends son was with me, he is 7 yrs Old, I had him standing on a tree stump so he could look into the telescope, I was holding him while he looked, as he was looking I looked up and saw a very bright light in the sky above the house, I thought what star is this, then it moved slightly, I quickly moved the boy from the telescope and asked him if he saw the light, he responded, " YES UNCLE " we quickly moved to a better position to view it, the light was like a headlight shinning down, then it started to move away, flying a squirrelly type flight path away, again not a sound coming from it. Then on Feb. 14 Th. At about 11:30 p.m. my Hawaiian mom came up and got me, I was packing my suitcase, we went outside only to view another bright object move across the sky, with more flashes, in the 5 weeks I was on the Island we viewed flashes in the night sky, from random locations, there is no airports close to where we where, or any flights at night at all, no air bases or anything of that nature, this brings me to one last sighting we had in July or Aug of 96 on the Big Island with my wife, my same friend and his wife and the same little boy, only 3 yrs old then, we were returning to H.V.N.P. from Kona after a day of fishing and it was dark about 8:00 p.m. HST, we were just before the turn off for Southpoint on the main HWY. When my friend says " LOOK " out the right side of the car coming in over the ocean we see a flat disk shape object with a small half round dome in the center top of it with rounded edges front and back of the disk part, it was coming in over the ocean at a very low rate of speed, what you would expect to see if it was a jet coming in on a landing lets say, and its angle of decent was nearly parallel to the land, it was trailing a beautiful day glow green color, a meteorite would be very fast and most likely a steep decent, this was not, as it passed by us it flew into the side of Mauna Loa, just behind the town of Na'alehu, upon impact it emitted a large bright flash of white light, and no sound, we continued home and ! slept th e night. The next day we made some calls to the local police, they heard of nothing, the newspaper, nothing, we call the observatory at Mauna Kea, nothing, we drove back to the town of Na'alehu and asked the locals, they heard and saw nothing, there was a fire burning up in the hills that had started that night and a fairly large fresh burned grass fire next to the road, we looked around the area for awhile for wreckage but found none, had the men in black already been there!!!! . If you have had a sighting similar to what we saw either in Hawaii or elsewhere, please post it in this site.
