Shape: Disk
it was a disk shape with a dom on top & bottom with lights around the craft between the top & bottom domes.

i was in the shower when i was interupted by my younger sister,"theres a ufo outside our bedroom window!!!." i rushed out as soon as i heard the tone of my sisters voice. i power walked to my room and there it was. it was such a clear night, not a cloud in the sky. "a ufo!!" my mum, older brother, younger sister and i assembled in my room where we could see it 100% clearly. it was very bright for a while then went dull. then continued to do so for 40 minutes. by this time it was continued to get bright and glowy and then dull fly in all different directions, up, down, backwards, swurving like it was out of countrol. i told my older brother to grab the camera. we opened my window,i repeatively told him to wait until the ufo had changed formation ( because the ufo was glowing and you wouldn't be able to identify the shape of the craft clearly).he didnt listen to me and took two photos when the ufo was bright and glowing. all the while it was still moving in odd formations through the sky. my brother and i got just i VERY clear look at the craft. the craft was a disk shape with two domes and had lights running around it, clearly showing this was not an airoplane. it continued hovering for a while then it gradualy dissapeared behind some houses. this lasted from 11:00pm-12:40am. being all hiped up from before i later went outside to marvel in what i had seen,just to be marvaled all over agian. this was at 1:20am and the ufo was back. it was hovering in the sky for ten minutes or so then suddenly took of at high speed across the sky leaving a streak of redish orange behind it. it stopped and hovered then took of again repeating the patern. i called my brother out side and we both witnessed this. it was so close to my house. it later spead off behind some houses again leaving a streak behind. that was the last time i saw the craft the time was then 2:00am. two weeks later the film was developed. only to realize the 2 photos my brother took were the only 2 photos that didn't develop. my brother f! ailed to put the flash on, on the camera.

((NUFORC Note: We doubt that the flash on a camera would have much effect on a photo taken of a brightly lighted object. We will request additional information from the brother of the witness. PD))
