I have never seen such an object in my life , movies and TV.

I want you to be sure about the correctness of what I report. I am a married Turkish citizen having 3 children. I was 44 years old when I saw the strange object. We were at a summer resort by the sea, about 45 kilometers on the west of Antalya.Just after dinner, without any alcohol and walked to the sea shore about 75 feet away from our bungalow and our dinning table. Lit a cigarette and seatted on one of the woodden strechs and started to look to the sky. Time was some minutes after 21.00 hours. I noticed the signal lights of an airplane,one red and the other green. The body of object had a color like aluminium but little darker. I did not pay any attention as I thought it was an airplane leading to the airport about 30 miles away. I kept smoking and noticed that the airplane / object was at the same position. I said how come an airplane stays at the same point. Started to look more carefully. At that time the object started to generate powerful red, green and yellow lights. As if the lights were generating from speedy propellers. With the effect of these new lights the body of the object became more visible. The shape was regtangular. The power of the lights were not the same. It seemed as if the power of lights were increasing with the increasing speed of the propellers. Red light got powerful , then the green light got more powerful than the red one. They were like the fancy lights of Las Vegas. Iwas shocked with what I have observed. Called my wife a few times to make her my witness but she did not attend as she was washing the dishes.

Light generation kept on some time then they became weaker and the object went straight up with an unbelieveable speed.

((NUFORC Note: The date of the incident may be approximate, although the witness does not indicate that fact. PD))

I am not very much interested with UFO s. The sky was very clear when Isaw this object.

Same object has been reported 3 months later by the captain of Turkish Airlines on his flight from Sofia / Bulgaria to Istanbul Turkey.
