Occurred : 6/10/2003 (Entered as : 06/10/2003)
Reported: 10/16/2005 1:24:58 PM 13:24
Posted: 10/20/2005
Location: Caracas (Venezuela), DC
Shape: Oval
Duration: 20 mn
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
huge black oval shaped flying object , hollow in its center

It was 18.15 on a very clear and sunny day, about 30 minutes before sunset. Suddenly, a huge black horizontal bar emerged fom behind the mountain which separates the Caracas valley from the sea.

Then, probably as a result of a change of axis became a sort of black oval shaped ring which went on moving, very slowly and silently, across the Caracas Valley towards the observers (4) situated 600 meters above the town level (1OOO meters).

The ring never reflected the sun rays and remained strikingly black but its edges were a little hazy and seemed to be undulating sligly.

This flying object could have been about 10 times as big as a standard passenger aircraft, frequently seen from the place of the sighting.

After 20mn, it changed direction and aimed towards a cloud where it stayed put as if it tried to hide. As the cloud was translucent, the object could still be seen but as minutes went by the cloud became darker, grew a kind of tail looking like a sea medusa and it became more and more difficult to distinguish its host.

Nevertheless one could see that the "ring" was taking the cloud along with to reach a mass of clouds on the horizon and finally disappeared for good.
