National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 5/20/2004 20:20 (Entered as : 05/20/2004 20:20)
Reported: 5/21/2004 1:24:40 AM 01:24
Posted: 6/4/2004
Location: Honolulu, HI
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 30-45 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
May 20, 2004 At approximately 8:20 P.M. Pacific Standard time, I saw in the northeastern sky a series of random light bursts that were clearly not fireworks or an airplane. I could not identify the outline of a UFO, but the movement of the light bursts was bizarre. The light bursts seemed to be jumping in a random pattern, not a straight line, within a small patch of sky. I am certain this was not an airplane or fireworks; if not a UFO, it could have been a satellite. The only other time I have seen anything similar to this was in the eastern sky in the late 1970s, off of Lanikai on eastern Oahu, Hawaii.
