Copenhagen, Denmark - 05-31-13
Well basically, I was getting ready to go to bed. I live in suburb of big city Copenhagen, the weather was great so I went out on the balcony of the apartment block to look briefly at stars and watch for UFOs.
I was interested because I still can't get over a 'satellite' a couple of months ago, which changed direction and speed drastically.
I have a clear view over buildings, when from my left, SE - a spherical object suddenly streaks toward the northwest really fast, a 'golf ball sized' (maybe a kilometer away or two, so quite big!) with a dull lighting and quickly it was gone.
It lasted only probably 3-4 seconds altogether; possibly moving about 5 thousand km/hour, and there was absolute silence. It was mindboggling.
I was blown away because of the timing, the lack of other witnesses (past midnight, people sleeping) and the lack of any sound emission. I was transfixed for a few minutes, my mind a blank, trying to get to grips with what had just happened.
Then I started to feel slight anxiety and went indoors. I had to sit for more than half an hour before being able to go to bed. My thoughts racing, of course searching for logical explanations, but coming up with none (nothing manmade moves that fast and soundless, at that altitude, probably 2000 - 3000 feet; it's just not possible.
The only logical explanation was a UFO. It was surreal.
One thought is, I would love to have been able to talk to someone else, another witness preferably at that moment. Also, I felt that there was something 'psychological' about the whole thing; as if 'it was timed for my benefit.'
The same morning I had actually pondered (recently become interested again in UFOs) if UFOs would have any interest in my area and concluded probably not, because there are no military installations or power plants around, for example.
All in all, there was some kind of connection of sorts; I have no idea why. And also, just before it happened, I was as if geared for the event, so initially I wasn't surprised.
It freaks me out, honestly - because it was so 'timed,' and the fact it was happening, indisputably!
I don't drink alcohol or smoke anything I'm stone cold sober.
I can't help thinking, if I hadn't been facing the skyline for those two to five seconds, I wouldn't have seen it and wouldn't be writing this.
How normal are these flybys really?
So, now I have decided we are not alone - now I know - so nothing to do but take it in stride and start studying the phenomena 'fulltime' - join the party.
