Sighting 08/31/08(20 At sunset, a large cloud approached from the southwest to a position approximately 10 kilometers from our location at Usury Park hiking trail. The sunset illuminated the cloud revealing many strange objects within (or possible one very large single object). Some shapes appeared to be solid and others appeared transparent. As the sunrays varied with the sunset so did the shapes of objects within the cloud.

Other clouds surrounding the larger appeared strangely illuminated in bright iridescent colors. Many other hikers stopped hiking and marveled at the objects within the clouds.

I took many pictures of the event and was in the process of creating a panorama in Adobe CS2. As the individual photographs were overlay semitransparent on each other to form the panorama, many more objects were then reveled in greater detailed clearly identifying them as possible UFOs. It now became apparent that the large clouds concealed one very large craft (approx 30 kilometers in diameter and many other smaller craft in the adjacent clouds. There appeared to be a bright illuminating beam of light cast down to the ground with another UFO object suspended within it.

I am sending several photographs by e-mail to Mr. Davenport to help document the event. In addition to your reference number, please use CODE: 00100A00B-000 as a cross reference.
