UFO sighting, Batangas, Philippines. 'Dancing in the sky'

On the night of February 12th of 2007 just after midnight I and five others which included my mother, Auntie, 1yr old daughter, boyfriend and the boat operator was onboard a small courier boat travelling from ‘Coco Beach’ back to ‘White beach’ where we were all based during our 3 week long holiday. Both of which are tourist beach resorts located in Oriental Mindoro, Batangas, Philippines.

It was a 30 minute journey back and we have just finished a big meal from the Coco beach restaurant so we were all very tired. Everyone around me just closed their eyes and I followed (except for the boat operator of course).

At about 10-15mins after, I opened my eyes to look up at the sky. The sky was clear and I can make out the star formations. Exactly after a minute, I thought I witnessed a Shooting star as it appeared to shoot in one direction and quickly disappeared. For 3 seconds I was thinking to myself I should make a wish.

Then it reappeared moving in different directions at incredible speed. It had different coloured lights. I witnessed a colour formation of white, red, orange and blue. I froze and kept my eyes on it as I was afraid I’d lose sight of it. I couldn’t tell the distance but I know it was very far as it was more or less the same size of an average star.

About 5 minutes of watching, I woke up my boyfriend who was snoozing with his head on his arms at the very front of the boat. I told him to look up at the star that was moving in the dark sky and as he was in a daze he quickly dismissed it and said ‘Nah it’s because the boat is moving up and down’ (as in his own words).

But I remained quiet until it reappeared brighter then proceeded to point again. ‘There it is, over there’, I said. This time he was quiet trying to focus and concentrate. We watched it swerve in zigzag motion and a straight line, speed up and then slow down again.

For a split second I took my eyes of the UFO to look at the sheer concentration on my boyfriends face he let out a ‘Wow’. I looked back at the object and he informed me that it just made a spectacular circular motion, which I just missed. My boyfriend proceeded to record the object on his camcorder but resigned to the fact that it was too hard to focus on the object at such distance especially at the night sky.

Another significant detail was that there was an aeroplane that was coming from the far right moving towards the west and we conversed on comparing the two. I said, ‘there is no way that UFO is a plane. We have nothing that moves that fast’. And so we concluded the same as the two objects aligned directly above each other.

Then we watched the UFO move the same way it was towards the west until it faded. We arrived at the shores in complete awe. It was one of the most memorable moments in my life and will probably never come across a UFO again.
