Hello here is my report
It was during the night (I don't recal the exact hour, but it was past midnight, the sky was perfectly obscure), in the neighbourhoods of July 27, 2006, I was on holiday in the south of Portugal (area of Palmela), as I usually do when the night comes I observed the starry sky while smoking a cigarette. I felt the wind suddenly rising, then in the space of a half second an object entered my field of vision, it flew at a rather low altitude in the southern or south western direction (no airport in the vicinity, except in direction of the north). A white light emanated (a perfect white) and seemed to wrap the apparatus. With this light the object seemed to comprise 2 colors of white and the black. It emitted no noise, did not leave any trail.
Well, since that day I am wondering :
Could that have been an American space shuttle returning of a mission? I doubt that since the object did not emitt any noise.
Could that have been a meteorite? Not very probable it had no trail, and the light which emanated from the lower part of the object was not "natural"
Could that have been an aircraft of civilian/military aviation? The altitude of the object was well too low and the object did not emit any noise
That's my testimony, it is the first time that I am in prey with this type of questioning. I did not consult other testimonys published on your website and this in order not to deteriorate the facts.
I thank you for not communicating my coordinates (nor perso info) and I congratulate you for your excellent website.
