Location: Paradise Island (Bahamas),
I have experience in aviation, attained a Private Pilots license.
I am 42 years of age and never seen any UFO before. Me my wife and my 9 year old son just came out of the Atlantis Hotel. Looking at the night sky was an object.
My first impression was that it was a large bird because of the speed that it is flying( real slow). Staring at it for about 10 seconds, I then observe that it looks like a top hat and seems to be illuminated by the hotels light that gave it a light brown color. No light was coming from the object, my guess was it was probably between 2000-3000 feet high. It then made a turn and at the same time accelerated into the clouds. A manuever that made me think that I just saw an UFO.
Still I verified by looking at the clouds how fast it is moving. No wind clouds moving real slow.
A bird? They don't accelerate.
Plane? No beacon lights, no sound, flight speed and acceleration dont'fit.
Helicopter? Maybe could make the manuever but everyone knows a helicoptert when they see one.
ET? I didn't say that.
