Reported: 1/6/2007 6:50:04 PM 18:50
Posted: 2/1/2007
Location: Coimbra (Portugal),
Shape: Circle
Duration:2 minutes
The object was hovering in one place and then it was gone

It was full moon middle august night, one of my cousins noticed something in the sky, to the left side of the moon but much lower. It was as big as a quarter and looked like a circle/saucer, it had many lights, a larger one in the center that was at least 1/5 the size of the whole craft and at least 10 other on the outline. The larger light was of a pale blue color, while the smaller ones appeared to be pale yellow.

The object was not directly above us, we were seeing it probably in a 45/50 degree angle.

During the period we were looking at it, which was about 2 minutes, the object was completely stable in that position. At all the time we were looking at it bottom. We shouted to relatives inside the house to come and see it, but no one answered. We ran inside the house to get them outside, that took about 1 minute, and when we returned outside there was nothing there anymore. No trail, no sound, absolutely nothing.
