Like a Jet Engine

March 25, 2009 Hello! To start my report, I would like to say, that I do not believe in UFOS (I mean the extra-terrestial ones that is). I believe that what is up in the sky, and I can’t identify, I call it a UFO. And that is what happened about 10 months ago (It could be a year ago) . Why report it now? Well, I was just watching a program on TV tonight about UFOS and it brought to mind the day, about 10 months to a year ago that I saw one.

It so happens that it was about 6:20 to 6:40 p.m. and I was in my back yard cleaning my lawn equipment. When I finished cleaning, I raised my arms to stretch and between two trees that are about 25 feet tall and spaced from one another about 15 feet, in that small space (I was about 20 feet away from the trees), and for about 5 second or less, I saw what appeared to be an extra-large black Jet Engine moving (by itself) from Canovanas to Rio Grande to Luquillo. I know what a Jet Engine looks like because I worked in the Airport and that is what it looked like. It was flying alone! The "extra-large black Jet Engine" that I saw was about 500 to 800 feet up in the air and about 800 feet (could be a little bit more) away from where I was standing. I saw it so clearly, that I could see orange, light yellow and blue streaks of a thin flame streaming from the front to the back of the engine.

From the distance that I was standing I would say that it was probably moving at about 100 or more miles per hour. If I were to figure out it’s size from the distance and height that I saw it, I would say that it was probably about 8 to 10 feet high and 10 to 12 feet long. I may be wrong, not sure. I did not hear any sound.

I proceeded to tell my wife about it and I called my daughter, who lived in Luquillo to her cell phone, but she told me she was in San Juan, but that she had not seen anything strange and told me to call the radio stations to verify if some else had seen anything. I did not call the radio stations. My wife, daughter and son believe in extra-terrestial beings and were delighted with my "sighting."

About an hour later I turned on the radio to check if someone had seen anything, but no one talked about any sightings.

I Thought I should tell my story to verify if anyone else had told a similar story in that time frame for the Puerto Rico area. The sighting date would be either May or March of 2008.

Sincerely, Rio Grande, Puerto Rico 00745
