UFO photographed near Frankfurt/Main

In the night from 07th to 08th september 1996 me and a friend drove home from a party. We both had not consumed any alcohol our drugs.

Circa 1 kilometre before we reached our village we saw a red-orange lighting oval object which flew over a hill right next to the site. It was less than 50 metres over the ground near a power pole (perhaps in 200 or 300 metres distance from the pole) and flew very slow and irregulary from one side to the other in an area of about 50 metres.

We watched the ufo for three or four minutes (as we discovered it, we immediately stopped our moped) and could see that the object slowly changed its shape from elliptical into roundly and back again into elliptical for some times. Also it looked like it was completely enclosed by a kind of orange fire, but this fire didn't jitter.

Than we decided to take a closer look on it and drove up on the hill. On our way we had to drive through the village for some minutes and could not see the ufo in this time. Reaching the top of the hill we saw that the object was no longer here but somewhere over the neighbour-village, in a distance of about 2 or 3 kilometres, perhaps up to 5 km, I don't know exactly. Because the object could be seen from the house of my parents, we quickly drove forward to me.

At home, I searched for my mother's photo camera, and because of the noise she woke up. I told her what was going on outside, and so we went into the garden and watched the object staying at the same place near the next village, changing its shape and brightness. At ca. 4:00 I could see that its brightness went darker and darker, and at last it dissapeared in nothingness after over an hour.

I took eight photos of the ufo, but I was very surprised as I saw them some days later: 1.) I choosed a long exposure time for the camera, but just on two of the eight photos you can see something more than black sky.

2.) It was also surprising that there were TWO objects on the photos! Both stood not in the center of the image but could be connected by an imaginary line which leads through the center 3.) On one photo you can see a serial of blue-lightning dots which I didn't remember having seen.
