Early 90ís donít exactly know the date of the incident, in the country of Colombia, South America, I was between 7-8 living with both parents in one of poorest parts of the city of Medellin, Colombia, something that resembles a favela, houses on the hills very dangerous place, and houses made out of cheap cinder blocks and sheet metal roofs.

One night, the ceiling started to shake, so I went running to my parents, thinking it was another earthquake. At the time we used to get a lot of earthquakes during the day as many as 30 earthquakes during a single day, strong earthquakes that would topple the poorly constructed houses and it was said that the worlds end was near due to all of the earthquakes.

Now going back to the night of the incident we noticed that only the ceiling was rattling but the ground wasnít shaking. So we were baffled by this, all of a sudden we see a bright light through the window, the light was so intense that it looked like if the sun was out, but it was night time.

At the same time we can hear commotion going on outside, so we all ran outside. When went outside we see the light right above our heads and indeed it looked like daytime. Literally hundreds of people were witnessing this, some in panic or other like me and my family just looking at the light about 3 or 4 stories high above us. Around it, we could clearly see the shape of the object which was rounded and only a humming sound we could hear, no wind or propulsion. It stood there for at least 5 minutes just hovering and it suddenly took off upwards so fast that if you blinked you could of missed it and still no propulsion or wind. We all went back to our houses and it was never talked about it ever again, we were so poor the only thing to talk about was about if we were gonna have food and all other things related to a dangerous poor area and the timing which the country was going through with the cocaine wars.

Also, the people were so poor, Iím sure no one had a camera to take pictures or maybe too scared but a lot of people witnessed this ufo.
