Duration:2 minutes
I saw a helicopter-size and silent object with a belt of lights rotating around it hovering over a park at night.

I was walking on the sidewalk on the right side of the street heading west on 34th street from Telegraph Ave towards Martin Luther King Junior Blvd.

I was passing a small park and noticed flashes of light. I turned and saw a dark object as big as a helicopter hovering over the park. It was silent and less than a quarter of a mile up in the sky. There was this belt of tiny irregular-flashing lights that would move around this big, dark oval object.

The UFO started to go higher in the sky and it moved slowly back and forth like how you could swing a pendulum. It was now about half a mile in the sky and gradually started to move North-East towards Berkeley.

Never have I seen something like this before. It was shocking, and I want to know if anybody else saw it. I’m glad I found this website to share this sighting of a UFO which I always thought was as a funny thing until this past Monday night, it is now certainly no joke to me.

I am into astrology and astronomy, so I look into the sky a lot at night. The most amazing things I have seen are meteor showers, but now this is the top of the list.
