The #1 Paranormal News Site
Hello. I've discovered this subreddit recently and decided to write about my own experience regarding UFO sighting that I had long ago, but never posted about anywhere.
I live in Moldova. It's situated between Romania and Ukraine. I was a kid back then and I don't remember what year it was, but it should be between 1990 and 1995.
I lived in a five-storey building, on the 5th floor, and I liked watching a night sky from the balcony from time to time. Most of the unusual things I saw were "slowly falling stars" that I was told are satellites or w/e orbiting around Earth.
I'd guess the time should have been between 19:00 and 22:00 when I noticed one of those "falling stars" as I was watching a dark starry sky. The “star” slowly moved from top-right corner of the visible portion of the sky to the center. At first there were nothing that seemed too unusual until it started weirdly changing its trajectory which no longer looked like a straight like, although it was a slight change anyway. It then stopped around the center of visible portion of the sky for a few seconds or maybe a 1-1.5 minute. Then another star appeared right next to that one. It didn't fully appear immediately – it was slowly increasing its brightness. It is also interesting that while gaining brightness it become too bright compared to the first star and then decreased its brightness, ending up looking just like it. It was like when you start the car engine it initially operates at a higher rpm and then calms down and uses it's idle-mode rpm. Overall it took ~ 0.6 seconds to appear, with 0.1 of that time spent to decrease brightness. I was kinda shocked after it's appearance, because looked like it has been there all this time hiding in the darkness while I was staring at the sky. After that they didn't move for some time (I'd guess 2-3 minutes) and then started moving roughly in the same direction where the first star came from. I don't remember how exactly did they disappear, maybe they've moved out of my sight or a building blocked my view. I've made a gif animation of the whole thing to better explain how it all happened (it was a loong time ago though so everything is approximate): http://imgur.com/a/rmMCo
Note: there were no sounds, like those of a helicopter, and I think it was too high in the sky for helicopters anyway.
