Location: Jakarta-Tokyo (inflight),
Shape: Oval
Duration:2 minutes
Morphing glowing orange oval object seen on a flight from Jakarta to Tokyo

Shortly after take-off I was looking at the on-board movie screen which was showing live footage of the clear night sky in front of the plane. I could see stars and what I thought was the moon though it seemed odd that this small `moon` had a kind of orange glow around it. I continued to look at it when to my astonishment this shape began to move across the screen in such a way that it was clearly not the moon or a star. For two minutes I watched it as it moved across the screen in an S-shape. Occasionally during this 2 minute period it disappeared from view only to reappear again in a slightly different place. Because of this it could have been possible I was witnessing more than one UFO. I am a 28yo male and this is my first experience of this kind and I am writing this report because there is no rational explanation for what I saw. All other passengers appeared to be asleep when this happened and I did not confer with any of the flight staff/pilots etc about what I saw.
