Location: Padang (Indonesia),
Shape: Light
Duration:50 minutes
Very bright light appeared for 50 min in the clear night sky of PADANG, WEST SUMATERA, INDONESIA, for 50 min

it was not dark yet, the sky was very clear, I was standing outside at the terrace watching the last moment of sunset, suddenly I saw a big light, too high for a plane, too low for a star. Very bright, much bigger than flight light I have ever seen. It stayed there for almost 1 hour. I called my sister and her husband, and 2 other people near my place. We kept looking, so long that made our neck tired. I managed to make some photos on my blackberry hand phone, but now the hand phone is not working and still to get it repaired now.

I believe it was a UFO, no doubt about that, Actually it was the second time I saw, first time around the same date, Dec 23, 2010 about the same time, as I came to Padang for new year. I was in the car with 2 friends. We could not stop because we had to catch Maghrib prayer. Please do not forget, many times in Padang we see big dark circle around the sun, like ring, with color gradation from dark to light, specially when earthquake happened many times in 2010 and 2011. Me, myself saw it 3 times. Very scary, felt like the end of the world.
