on the 5/11/99 in a rural area of south canterbury New zealand my family and a friend were socializing on our porch when i saw a strange object high in the crystal clear night sky.the object or ufo was emitting a purple electrical current or something like you see inside those static balls at science shows.It was travelling very slow and we were able to observe it for some time.this was not the first or last time i observed the craft but the only time with witnesses.i beleive it may have been an experimental ion propelled spacecraft being tested,which leds me to beleive that humans are much more advanced in spacetravel than we are told.
