Duration:15 seconds
cone like object passes overhead in the Egyptian/Sanai desert

On spring break with some friends in the Sanai when we met some friendly Bedouin men who offered to take us into the desert for the evening. They seemed of good nature so we took them up on their offer for us to experience a true bedouin night in the desert. We arrived to a spot in the middle of nowhere about twenty minutes from the town of Dahab. We proceded to set up our minimal camp and our bedouin guides cooked up dinner. After our meal we chatted for a while and then we all got into our slleping bags a proceeded to got to sleep. I myself was untired and so sat up for a while ejoying the undisturbed view of the stars. About 45-60 minutes after my friends went to sleep, while looking at the sky, from above and behind me floated over a craft with the shape of a cone or diamond. I say it floated because the cone shape was rotating in a completely non aerodynamic form, the object also seemed to be only 500-800ft. est. above me and made No sound. The craft had various color and shape lights aswell. The sighting lasted about 15 seconds for the craft never noticed myself or my companions and proceeded on its way deeper into the Sanai desert. Imediatly after the object was gone I looked around at my friends who were all asleep and unknowing to what just passed overhead, just at that moment i founnd that one of the bedouin men was awake and had seen everything i had. With my eyes popping out of my head i looked at the man and curiously pointed to the sky, his response was simply "Israeli, secret Israeli" I have no better explanation for what i saw.
