Subject: Observation ovnis du 02/08/2003
Mr [Name] [Firstname]
Let me address this email to you for I would wish to bring my testimony concerning an observation which I made yesterday evening, rather intriguing, to which I would like to get other witnesses of these strange phenomena.
Date of observation: 08/02/2003
Having gone outside on my doorstep, I have been an amateur astronomer for more than 10 years I like to observe the sky frequenly.
As I live in the country, I frequenly observe the sky on the horizon which covers the portion of the South/West/North sky.
More precicely I look freuqnetly in the direction of the West (direction of the Air Base of Avor (18), air base having nuclear tactical weapons)
At approximately 10:30 p.m., I was observing the sky towards the western horizon when suddenly my glance came upon a white point similar to a satellite, following a West-east trajectory, but did not follow a strictly rectilinear line, it tended to slightly veer per moment as for a correction of trajectory.No audbible sound, only the luminosity slightly wavering per moment.
Of small luminous magnitude, the point progessively increased magnitude as it advanced. on several occasions this object slowed down slightly, then took speed again, then I followed it with my eyes, taking an east/South east trajectory, and obviously the point gained altitude for I saw his uminous magnitude decrease and I lost sight of it in the next 10 seconds.
Total duration: approximately 2 minutes total
Oddly in the 5 minutes which followed the event, I observed two twinkling luminous points (similar to the fire of military planes) coming from North which oddly took the trajectory that had been followed by the point observed previously. but there was smthing unusual in these objects for the 2 objects kept a constant distance (as if they had a cable which connected them and maintained their distances, they veered at the same time, at the same speed... but not one sound of engine... the silence... moreover the traffic lights (if it was that) had a very fast frequency for the red white flickerings... unless they were drones ou stealth helicopters?
At approximately 11:00 p.m, still observing towards the West, at 15░ of degree of altitude,I observed a white flash which really disturbed my sight, more extremely than a photographer'a flash (as if one put a flashlight at you direct in your eyes for one moment.)
In the 5 minutes which followed this flash, I saw the Western horizon "flash" of a bluish dawn... (atmospheric phenomenon?)
I do not have any idea if the weather had predictd storms, but anyway these observations seem disconcerting to me. I believed initially in atmospheric re-entries of meteorites, or space junk or objects, but these two flashes seem really unexplainable to me.
This morning I felt nauseas and visual problems with puffs of heat... perhaps related to this flash phenomena? (exposure to radiations?)
Following this flashs, I went back to bed.
These intriguing observations let me think that it it:
- either atmospheric rentries with ground impacts (bluish flash)
--> proximity of the air base of avor at less than 50 kms of my residence and a missiles test range (GIAT industry of Bourges)
Maybe with a little chance other witnesses have benefitted from these observations?
thank you for your interest in my testimony
