Duration:10 seconds
11/02/2015 Above St. 79BT, Boeung Tumpun, Phnom Penh, Cambodia - yellow orange fire - 10 sec - the last 4seconds it went directly upward.

On the night of Nov 2, 2015, I was sitting on a balcony located at a building on St. 79BT, Boeung Tumpun, Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and as I looked up into the night sky, I saw an object glowing something like a yellow orange fire color emitted from a rocket engine. From my position, I estimate the object appeared to be at an altitude somewhere between 20,000' and 30,000', and it looked to have a diameter of about 1.5m to 2m.

I called another person who was nearby in the building, but as I did that, the UFO glow increased and it started ascending rapidly which could be detected by the manner in which its size now reduced rapidly and within 4 seconds it was completely out of my visual sight range. The UFO went virtually straight upwards. There was no other sign of movement in any other direction, it went directly up.

The following are the co-ordinates for PHNOM PENH - Latitude: 11.55° N Longitude: 104.92° E Elevation: 16 m - the location from where this sighting was made on Street 79BT is approx 0.5km due South of the Soviet Khmer Friendship Hospital.
