Copying over (with translation from Greek to English) a UFO sighting posted on the greek amateur astronomers forum AstroVox: "Witness says one night on 15-August early 1990s 92-93 (he remembered the date because it's a big holiday for Orthodox Christians, but not the exact year) observed a few meters (!) up and away from him just outside his front door, a triangular yellow/orange UFO, about 3m per side "with hundreds very very small yellow lights" hovering. He was stunned for a few seconds, then climbed up the stairs to his house's roof and saw it from above, and described it as a "low pyramid". He didn't get closer, but observed as its lights changed colour from yellow to red and in a few seconds it began to rise vertically and then shot away at incredible speed.

2-3 days after his sighting, a family in a nearby village in Cyprus was terrified because "something" landed on their property. The father was just coming back and saw a "blinding light" and ran quickly inside the house. The next day, the late Andreas Achillides from the University of Cyprus examined the site and found landing marks of about the same size. The event was reported in the Cyprus press (he would do a search and come back). "
