Location: Trivandrum, Kerala State (India),
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
Fast moving bright light seen over Trivandrum, India.

I with my wife who was 5 months pregnant were standing in the lawns of our house in the evening of March 14, 1997.

I was just casually looking at the southern sky and suddenly I saw a bright light, the size of my fist, round in shape moving towards the north in a straight line. My wife also saw it.

When I first saw it, it was far south and within matter of no time it moved towards our direction up in the sky towards the north. As it came in line above us it veered 90 degrees and went towards the eastern direction and disappeared. It was very fast without any noise. Other than the bright silver light there was no trail of light or fume following it. The distance that it covered in less than a minute was huge and was much faster than any aeroplane.

I reported the matter to the officials at the observatory here, but they were unable to give any authentic answer.
