I had two sightings in my life span, but the most intriguing and the most memorable one was in the year 1983.
I live in Larnaca, Cyprus. Larnaca is found on the south coast of Cyprus just above the Middle East and Africa. It was during the last year of High School. It was towards graduation time which wouldmean the end of May.
My school is situated very near the salt lake and there are small hills all around. Cyprus from May on wards has hot weather so all class windows were wide open. Suddenly my attention was drawn by a very bright, shiny silver object that was hovering above a hill of 6 meters high. For a few minutes I thought I was hallucinating and was trying to determine whether it was caused due to the brightness of the sun. The object was not round as a saucer. It was more of an oval shape and it covered the whole perimeter of the hill if not bigger than that.
Suddenly it moved sideways and hovered again. Let me say at this point that the salt lake is between my school and Larnaca Intl Airport. My teacher having realized my attention was drawn elsewhere, outside the window she reprimanded me for not paying attention to my lesson. I explained there was something unusual outside and we all gathered at our classroom balcony. My class was on the second floor. The object moved again towards the opposite side of the hill, hovered once more for several minutes.
It moved a third time seemingly on top of the hill but not exactly. Very slowly it started to move downwards behind the hill. It remained hidden a few minutes and re-appeared. It hovered for a couple of minutes as if preparing for take off.
Indeed take off was carried out vertically and you could say with the speed of
lightning. The UFO disappeared within the blink of an eye.
I hope my description is clear enough. I hope to hear from you in the not very distant future preferably through chat.
