A perfectly round blue shining sphere rose from a swampy area and flew in a deliberate fashion over the area .

I would like to inform you of a sighting that I had in the late 90’s and never reported (I did not know your organization existed).

The reason I am contacting you now is that, last night, Wed 07/09/08, I was watching the UFO Files on the tube and was shocked beyond belief at what I saw. The program was describing a sighting that took place in the 1600’s or 1700’s by the crew of a sailing vessel. The object in the animation, that was built from the written accounts of the sighting was exactly what I saw one afternoon in San Juan Puerto Rico. I was doing a preflight inspection of my aircraft and while walking around the nose of the aircraft I saw an object ascend from a swampy area just off the concrete area of the apron, approx. 150 yards. The object was a very shiny blue with the color slightly darker toward the top and a little lighter toward the bottom. What caught my attention at first was it was a perfect sphere. It rose slowly at first going straight up to a height of about 200 to 300 feet. It stopped just for a second then slowly started moving in the direction of the city, toward the west. As it moved it appeared to gain altitude slightly and veer a little then it gained speed until it was over the town. At that point it went straight up at a very fast pace. I lost sight of the object at that point. Except for the slight veering it did while moving from my location to town all changes in direction were at right angles. Also it made now sound that I could hear. Why I thought this was not some natural object was because of it’s color, exact shape and right angle movements. The object itself was exactly like what was described on the UFO Files last night. What also is fascinating to me is that the object from my sighting and the sighting I reference is 300 years or more apart.
