Strange sights in the sky over Oahu from about 1994 to 2004 seen by long-time resident

I'm so glad I found this site. I was born and raised in Honolulu, and have spent a lot of time outdoors looking at the night sky. I am sober; I don't use any drugs and seldom drink. Over the years I have seen a quite a few things I could not explain in the skies above Oahu. I'm glad to have a place to share them here. At the times these things happened I was either alone, or with one person and it was wierd not to be able to talk about them.


First of all the most recent thing was in the ocean outside Waikiki. This occured approximately around 2002 or 2003. On more than one occasion, I saw lights I could not explain in the ocean outside of Waikiki. I saw these from Kaimana beach on the eastern end of Waikiki at the foot of Diamond Head. There were yellow lights. They did not behave either like airplaces or boats. They were above the water. If I remember correctly they looked like flares (Although they were much larger, larger and brighter than stars or airplanes). Their movements made no sense. If I remember correctly, they burned brightly in one place and then sank slowly and disappeared before they hit the water. They were perhaps a mile or more out to sea, seemingly directly out from Kaimana. I saw these bright yellow lights on more than on occasion. If I remember correctly there were more than one in a row. My friend, a social worker, also saw then and we were freaked out.

Perhaps around 1994 I saw the most spectacular thing. It was twilight at Queen's surf in Waikiki. To the West, out to sea from Makakilo and Waianae, hundreds of feet up in the sky, I saw a spectacular display. Fluorescent green squiggles appeared high in the sky, one after another. They would fade and more would appear. This went on for a while. It looked like someone air brushing designs on a T-shirt. This was NOT the "green flash" people sometimes see in Hawaii after the sunset. In spite of the fact that thousands of people should have seen this, I found no mention of it in the media, and I checked. I think I also checked somewhere like Bishop Museum which has astronomers and people like that. No one else reported it. One friend speculated that it must have been was rockets or missiles launched from the military base on Kauai [which would probably be Barking Sands]. This occurance was spectacular,unmistakeable, distinct and went on for a while.

At other times, I've seen lights in the night sky that seem to behave in odd ways if they were to be aircraft. This could be their movement, or brightness. Most of these I've seen from Kahala or near Sandy Beach. Perhaps some from Waikiki. I don't remember the details that much now, just thinking, that light isn't moving correctly for an airplane, or it looks too big. If I remember correctly most were yellow light, or perhaps white.

Somewhere in the early or mid nineties, I saw the most incredible sights at Waimanalo beach in eastern Oahu. These may well all be natural. I just thought they were spectacular. On this particular day, I saw an awesome rainbow coming straight down from a cloud to the sea. About sunset, which was taking place on the other side of a mountain range, a sight appeared in the eastern sky about where the sun rises. This on the horizon was over the water. Black rays emanated from this spot, like a reverse sunset. Lots of people saw it, they just looked transfixed, but no one said anything, strangely. Combined with the rainbow and something else I've forgotten, the energy was intense that day. It was special. I would be grateful to know what that was, if anyone knows.

Then, between about 2000 and 2002, I saw one more thing. I was near Punchbowl. It was probably between about 3 and 5 in the afternoon. This cloud came overhead, but it was not like any cloud I have ever seen. It seemed unusually radiant and important. It resembled a city in the sky. I was transfixed by it. I remember I wanted to call an aquaintance who is spiritually sensitive and religious because I thought she too would understand that something was afoot. I don't think that was an ordinary "cloud." I've wondered in it concealed a UFO, or something else.

That's all I can specifically remember at this time. I've noticed other reports on this site of strange lights over the ocean outside of Waikiki that are like my stories.
