Sparkling UFO Seen in Switzerland

On Wednesday, December 1, 2004, at 9:15 p.m., the two eyewitnesses were standing on a bridge in the south side of Lausanne, Switzerland, overlooking Lake Geneva, when they spotted an unusual green object in the night sky.

"Me and my friend were walking on a city bridge in Lausanne. Suddenly, we both had an impulse to look south, towards the lake. About 30 degrees above the lake we saw what appeared to be a kind of green firework."

"We weren't much impressed, but this light continued to show a comet's shape, flying from east to west. It was big, green and glowing and left some kind of (light) trail. The object was silent and slow. It was unlike anything I had ever seen."

"My friend said, 'Is it a rocket or a satellite?'"

"But I had seen them before, and it didn't look like either of them."

"A few days later (Saturday, December 4, 2004) I met another witness who described the same arc or (flight) path, the same colour and shape, and time. Our local newspaper didn't write a line about this. Whatever it was, it disappeared behind a building. Vanished!

Evian is on the other side of the lake and saw nothing. Now I am even more convinced that we are not alone. If you have any pictures of it, please contact me by email." (Many thanks to Jim Hickman, executive director of Skywatch International, for this news story.)
