Subject: UFO sighting
My name is [Firstname], aged 31,(graduate with a Licence in [-] and studying in [-]), I live in the Gers in Embats close to Auch in the Gers 32 (FRANCE) and I would like to report to you what I saw in the evening of Saturday July 30 2005 at approximately 09:45 p.m..
I have just made 4 statements on the Internet (FFU, ONDES, RIO, GREPI) but I had no feedback. I guess that I am not credible or interesting.
First I want to stress that I am objective, I stick to the fact and nothing moreover, I make a point of remaining discrete but I provide my testimony to know if other people saw this object at the same hour, which would be a confirmation for my entourage which looks at me like I'm insane. I must say that since Saturday evening that has haunted me, I told the same story 50 times, and it would comfort me to know that I am not the only one to have seen this type of object.
July 30, 2005 at 09:45 p.m. approximately I was [doing an ordinary activity] in front of the house like every evening (northern frontage) and I see coming from the west a dark silhouette flying silently at low altitude. I thought of a raptor bird but the object approaching to my position seemed increasingly large and its corners were with salient angles (right-angled or parallelogram). It did not have any signal lights and no fire but moved quietly with a regular trajectory without making noise.
I thought of a sailplane (but a very intriguing one). Approximately 6 or 7 seconds later it was above my field, and it was the best moment of the observation for I did not see a dark silhouette coming from the west anymore but an object lit by the twilight. At this hour, it was dark but one distinguishes the shapes and a little of the colors. It ressembled a sailplane but positioned vertically with rectangular wings and a cylindrical fuselage with a pointed nose, but without rudders. Then I thought that it was a kind of drone or another original remote-controlled machine of a size of 4m which nose dived after having lost allcontrol and all engine power.
Thus I then rushed towards the place of the "expected crash" but there.. surprise! Instead of crashing it continues its horizontal trajectory while remaining in a vertical position of "diving diving" , which is "anti-aerodynamics", like a satellite in orbit with deployed panel. It was at this exact time that I realized that it was an UFO and not before that because its shape was "not conventional"(it was not like the famous saucers). It continued its race towards the East while passing above the house of my neighbor (within 1km) and I revaluated its size as of 20m his altitude as of 50m approximately, and while it moved away I badly distinguished the panels but there was like a black box above the cylinder, its movement seemed to be slightly oscillating by overflying the hills. Then I lost sight of it, there was not enough light there to light it.
The observation lasted 15 seconds approximately, I am the only witness, the sky was slightly cloudy and there was a light breeze. It was well below the clouds, almost at ground level.
I hope that my testimony remains objective and can help you in your ufologic scientific research and enrich the statistical data.
It is the first time that I see an UFO
I am an amateur of astronomy and of aeronautics and I think I am sufficiently knowledgeable to affirm that this object did not have anything conventional.
As for my personal explanation of the phenomenon I try to reject the "extraterrestrial" thesis I lean rather for an American secret military machine: they are always 20 years in advance! And they are champion as regards misinformation
