I'm new here and from belgium so I apologize in advance for my english. I saw yesterday what I believe to be a UFO-event (not per se unearthly) as I
can't come up with any reasonable explanation yet. It's the first time I saw something unexplainable in my life and I created an account on
abovetopsecret just to report it to the community in the hope to find some answers and even more in the hope that other people have seen it, cause I
can't believe other people wouldn't have seen this, it was so clear and quite big! Here is my report as I filed it to nuforc:
"Yesterday evening (Thursday 06 September 2007) around 20h25 I was travelling alone by train from Leuven to Mechelen (Belgium) reading the newspaper.
When I looked up I literally dropped my paper cause I saw suddenly 3 balls of light hanging still in the air in a wide triangle-form. My first thought
was it was maybe a reflection of my window, but it definitely kept hanging there on the same spot and when a rising cloudformation covered 2 of the 3
objects after 3 minutes of watching it out of my train window, it ruled out the possibility of being a window reflection.
It appeared like they were reflecting sunlight though because they were hanging in the late-evening western part of the sky, and looked
orange/yellowish. They appeared to have a round form but rather oval, it’s hard to say, but they definitely didn’t appear to be pointy like a
star. Furthermore, the light didn’t appear to be coming from a concentrated spot like you have with the flare of a plane or a planet/star, they
looked like bright ‘ink’spots in the air, so they should have been really big.
I believe they were hanging 25 to 30 degrees above the western horizon and I could look at them for at least 3-4 minutes! Then a cloud covered the
bottom 2, which formed the basis of the triangle you could say, and only the upper one was visible. The train then made a curve and I lost them out of
sight. Later in the car I pulled over a few times to have a look when I was outside the city, but that cloud had risen so they were just gone or
behind the cloud but I haven’t seen them after.
I estimate they had the magnitude of Venus at its brightest, magnitude -4, but it was like there were 3 wide (no-pointlike/starlike form but broader
in shape) Venuses hanging in the sky exactly in a wide triangle form, on a great distance I guess cause a cloud at the horizon covered 2 of them."
I ‘ve seen all kinds of phenomena and have been a member of an observatory/amateurastronomer for 8 years (not anymore now) so I know basis
meteorological and astronomical phenomena. I have watched the skies for so many hours and nights and seen a lot, from magnificent fireballs and
meteors to satellites and iridium flashes, but nothing that was unexplainable. Never ever I saw something as yet uncomprehensible like this. If it was
there, there should have been lots of people who saw it cause it was bright and clear, I don’t understand it hasn’t been on the news yet. Also
I’m a Clinical psychologist so I’m quite familiar with hallucinations and post-hoc explanations/ false memories and so on haha.
I just hope to hear that there are pictures made, because I could'nt make any as I was on a train and have an old cellphone without a camera. So all
I can give you is my word at this point, unfortunately.
Any ideas, information, thoughts are welcome!
