Location: Cancun (Mexico),
Shape: Cigar
Duration:approx. 30sec
A huge object off the coast of Cancun, Mexico

I was eating at a small restaurant that was right on the beach. I could see the island or Cozumel in the distance. Then a blueish light caught my eye. The light color was similar to the color of kindergarten finger-paint blue, but it was different and probably the most beautiful blue that I have ever seen.

The craft itself appeared to be very large now that I think of it. I would estimate its speed to be about 500mph. I never actually saw the craft, however I do not think that it would be any shape other than cigar, as described in the questionnaire above. It moved soundlessly through the air. I was surrounded by the blueish haze described in the previous paragraph. My personal belief is that the "haze" was just the effect of the lights mounted on the craft shining through the clouds that the craft was passing through. I felt a small charge of static electricity in the air, as if I rubbed a balloon on my hair.

These details seem unimportant to me, but as you said to include everything, I will.

The object appeared suddenly, without any prior indication of an approaching object.

According to reliable sources aurora were particularly far-reaching that year.

There is an EXTREMELY SMALL possibility that the object released a water craft, because I saw a long, thin object in the water, however it was mos likely a Barracuda.
