Faintly visible shape-shifting UFO with no illumination at a height of 15000 ft, moving erratically over Chennai, India

On the 9th of May, 2020, 5 residents in Gem Stone Apartments, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India witnessed a UFO at around 09:40 p.m. Indian Standard Time (1610 hours Greenwich Mean Time or 1610 hours Coordinated Universal Time) from the rooftop. Exact coordinates from where the UFO was sighted is 13⁰05’15”N 80⁰11’12”E, in an eastward direction from this location.

The UFO was one single craft, and appeared to be at a very high altitude, at least 15,000 feet. The conditions at the time the UFO was spotted were: 1. Clear skies 2. No clouds 3. Stars were visible 4. No aircraft around (because the country was under lockdown and all means of travel suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis) 5. No sound made by the craft.

6. No change in behavior of animals 7. No physical effects observed 8. No marks on bodies after sighting The UFO appeared to be spinning with no particular axis and kept moving erratically around a star in the night sky. The UFO did not emit any light, but there seemed to be a very faint aura or haze around it. The UFO itself was shape-shifting and was visible very faintly because of its high altitude and very low levels of illumination, so one had to strain his/her eyes to be able to see it.

The UFO’s color could be described as cloudy, translucent and white. The UFO seemed to have multiple faintly visible “tails” which appeared and then disappeared, only to appear again after a while. It also had a very very faint trail.

NOTE: 1. It was NOT Venus, as this one was erratically moving around a star.

2. It was NOT SpaceX’s Starlink satellites as only ONE, erratically moving craft was seen and not a train of crafts.

3. This sighting would most probably be classified as "Nocturnal Lights" on Hynek's Scale and is not a close encounter of any kind.
