SLOVENIA: Unusual Object seen over Ljubljana, 10-24-06
UFO Ljubljana, October 24th 2006, 10 p.m.-The female witness from the capital city of Slovenia wrote about her sighting of a zigzagging object noticed on 24th October 2006. She wrote: "On October 24, shortly after 22 h, in Ljubljana [Slovenia], I and another person observed a small silvery object - very much like a distant shiny star - move swiftly in the general direction S-SW."

The witness' relation:

"I am very glad that there is a website - or a person - to whom I can report phenomena that fall out of the usual everyday experience frame. And I am glad to share the following experience with you - but I must ask you NOT to publish my email address anywhere, under any circumstances. [There is nothing sinister about it. It's simply that life can be difficult here for those who see what many others don't - and doubly so if they are in the public eye.]

On October 24, shortly after 22 h, in Ljubljana [Slovenia], I and another person observed a small silvery object - very much like a distant shiny star - move swiftly in the general direction S-SW.At first, I thought it was a star. Then it seemed to move. I thought it was a satellite, then. But the next second the object disappeared - only to reappear at a spot that definitely wasn't indicative of a straight trajectory [such as the trajectory of an space- or aircraft]. In other words: the object appeared to be "zigzagging" across the sky. There may have been some very high-altitude clouds - though the sky seemed clear - but the object moved in "flickers" - i.e. we could not follow its trajectory, because it kept flashing - appearing and disappearing.

But even if its trajectory was partly covered by clouds, it was quite obvious that it wasn't moving in a straight or any kind of "normal" line. It kept "jumping" up and down, left and right. The entire sighting lasted no more than a few seconds.

I don't think very many people here saw it. The reason for that is banal in the extreme: at 22 h most people are glued to their TV sets watching the late evening news. [It's like a ritual.] But the two of us who witnessed it KNOW that what we saw - whatever it was - was REAL. We tried to contact some other sky watchers from the area - making it very clear that we were under no influence of 'substances' and that our sky-watching experience is substantially above average.

It didn't seem to help much. The replies were as expected: from a very mild expression of interest to the usual "eye-rolling" sermons, telling us [without even knowing to whom they were talking] that it was probably an effect of our bodies trying to maintain balance, or that it was an optical illusion of some kind - etc. I don't know what it was. But I do know that it was NO "optical illusion".
