Duration:1.5 hrs
During the routine bridge watch at sea, on the 29th Oct 2010 2200 UTC in position 03 56S 074 59E, I happened to observe a bright reddish light which was bleak at first but latter it became brighter and I felt it approaching towards my vessel.

Taking up the binoculars, I saw a vertical furnace like object travelling in a horizontal direction at phenomenal speed. In around two minutes time it was past my vessel and disappeared from my visible horizon.

This was not enough, as again on the 30th Oct 2010 at around 2100 UTC in position 01 30N 075 06E off the Lakshadweep Islands, I again sighted a similar object with similar characteristics but this time it was there for around 1.5 hours.

The vessel was travelling at the speed of 14 knots heading north. The objects bearing remained constant for the entire period of its visibility, latter its altitude was reduced and finally it disappeared behind the clouds and then below my visible horizon.

The difference between the two sightings was that the first one was much closer, brighter and travelling fast whilst the second sighting was in a constant position with respect to my ship.
