Location: Pygra (Cyprus),
Shape: Triangle
Duration:45mins
Triangle shape with amber, green and white flashing lights hovering over Pygra in Southern Cyprus

I was alerted to the dogs barking into the North Eastern sky which is the back of my house in a village Pygra which is south west of the capital Nicosia. As is was 1.30 am,I decided to get up and investigate when a bright light caught my eye as it looked like an aircraft going in the wrong direction. We are on flight path into Larnaca airport and this object was going in the complete opposit direction. Then the object appeared to stop and hover. It had green, amber and white flashing lights around it. It moved in irregular directions, back and forth and side to side. Difficult to tell how far up it was but the lights were large as the size of an aircraft on on its final approaches to land. I observed it through binoculars for approx 45 mins and could see it was a triangle shape, and woke another family member to witness it. I wanted to video it as the video has a very strong zoom. When I tried to video it, it was like someone put a hand over the lens as I was unable to see anything. I checked the camera at other places into the sky and room and was able to see perfectly but again, when pointing the camera at the object, it went black and I was unable to record. When my younger daughter came into see the object, it moved behind the tree and stayed there. We could see the lights through the tree but it wouldnt come back out for a proper view.
