Occurred : 6/1/1999 13:00 (Entered as : 06/99 13:00)
Reported: 4/30/2003 7:55:15 PM 19:55
Posted: 5/2/2003
Location: Bahamas,
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:30 seconds
Seen at Bahamas at approx 1:00 pm. Checked out of my hotel but my flight was scheduled to leave at 8:00 pm so I left most of my video taping for that afternoon.

Looking up at the sky I noticed a vapor trail from a jet. I pointed my video camera at the trail and noticed a silver cylindrical object flying across the sky slowly. I kept my camera on it as it passed through and under the clouds. My wife is heard on the video tape joking that it might be a ufo. I thought it could be a balloon but at the height of the clouds could it be visible? When I got home I viewed the footage on my big screen TV and was amazed to see that this object was cylindrical shaped and spinning and wobbling. It seemed to change shape from cylindrical to square and back a few times.

The clearest shot of this object is when it passed underneath the clouds and the object was black and very detailed at appeared like a top hat at that point.

I have this footage on tape and I'm planning to transfer it to my PC when I get the software so that I can upload it for the world to see.

((NUFORC Note: Witness has offered to forward a copy of the tape to our Center. We will view it when it arrives. PD))
