Location: Pakse,
Shape: Circle
Duration:4 minutes
As I walked out from Pakse Tactical AFB headquarters at around 1700, a bright jellyfish-like object hovered above the city.

As I walked out from Pakse Tactical AFB (Royal Lao Air Force) headquarters on a misty, late afternoon, strange lights caught my eyes. I looked up to find a massive, circular, and bright void that filled a good section of the sky. This was the size of 1 football field (100+ yards).

Its luminous lights changed colors. This unidentified object was not solid and utterly soundless. It appeared somewhat like a gigantic jellyfish; a living organism floating approximately 3500 feet above the ground.

The event lasted a long 3 to 5 minutes. Afterwards, this phenomenon slowly swirled toward the horizon, disappearing into the eastern sky. It was uncanny that no soul on the entire airfield had reported or even seen this extraordinary occurrence.
