Location: Ein Geidi Beach (Israel),
Shape: Unknown
Duration:10minutes
I was a working in Israel on a kibbutz in 1984. I spent a weekend on a beach called Ein Geidi which is a reaort on the Dead Sea. We were sleeping on the beach, just as we got into our sleeping bags, we could see in the sky an object moving from right to left, and slowly up and down. We stood up and watched this object, which was quite far in the sky over the dead sea for about ten minutes. We were transfixed on this object as it stopped suddenly, then shot off at great pace. I can't remember the shape. As we sat down and talked about our experience, two jets flew from behind us up over the Dead Sea towards the object and into Jordan airspace. The country Jordan being at the other side of the lake. I thought that was strange as relations between these two countries weren't that good at the time.
