|Sighting over Quezon City Philippines during midnight of December 31, 2006
We were preparing for NOCHE BUENA in preparation for New Year 2007. I noticed this red shaped object (size of a small planet like Mars) about south-east of the full moon. It was clear although there was some clouds which at times cover the moon. The sky was well lit with fireworks display since it was countdown to New Year.
Initially I thought it was Mars but noticed that the object was contant and there was no flickering. I noticed the object moving into a slow speed going North. It took quite some time but the speed was constant and it was straight until it disappeared into the horizon. By that time, my wife's cousing was with me watching the whole thing. I thought it was a plane of sort but later ((name deleted)) (wife's cousin) came inside and claimed that the red object had reappeared and heading into the same position at the same slow constant speed.
We watched it until it took the same position as last time and stayed there for quite awhile until it again sped off into the distance at the same slow constant speed.
It reappeared the second time. This time my aunt and wife were with us. It performed the same exercise.
The third time, by then it was already 1:00 AM, January 1, 2007, it reappeared and followed the same path and position. But this time, it was joined by a second smaller red object which flew parrallel its original route.
The bigger object then started speeding into the distance at the same constant speed while the smaller red object reached a point parrallel to the original location of the bigger object.
By this time, the bigger object had already disappeared the smaller object started to follow it, at the same slow constant speed. I went up to the balcony to follow its route until it finally disappeared. Time was around 2:00AM.
I noticed that at one point the entire street lamps along our house concked out for a full three seconds before it reappeared. But no brownout occured.
Perhaps the UFO was watching the fireworks display and perhaps it was thinking that it could not be seen because it was a red dot in the sky.
I tried to take pictures of it with my sony W50 digital camera but I am not sure if anything came out of it. I have the file and can send it to you. Have not touched it really as I am not adept with any software relating to photography.
