Location: Perradeniya (Sri Lanka),
Shape: Sphere
Duration:25 minutes
Blue colored sphere seen by hree people from three different locations

Location: Sri Lanka East sky; Orion constellation - appeared alongside “Bellatrix”

Description: This object appeared as a spherical one and it had a glowing bright blue color. Three friends including me saw this object from three locations situated approximately 20-45 km (Kandy, Central Province, Sri Lanka) to each other.

Remarks: UFO hovered for about 20-25 minutes while radiating orange-yellowish colures from its sides. Slight movement from left to right was observed and went dim and bright (slow flickers) several times (no clouds) and after 2-3 minutes later moved towards south east direction in a constant linear speed faster than a common satellite.

1-2 minutes later an Aircraft with no sound (probably as I think) traveled in a strange path closer to the exact area the UFO was observed. Perhaps that arrival may have caused the UFO to move away…
