UFOs In Paradise: Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia


USO Sighting By Clergy

Date: October 8, 2005
Location: Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia


**********

Date Reported: 10/11/2005

Sighting Time: 7:05 am
Day/Night: Dawn
No. of Witnesses: 2
Duration: Less than 5 minutes

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

The vessel was white/metalic grey in colour. It had a gently curved top and a round large ball like bottom. The closest that I can describe it is that it looks fairly close to the one shown in Photo353.htm of this site. To me the most prominent feature of the vessel was the round ball like bottom.

Size of Object(s)

It was difficult to estimate its size when it came out of the water, because of the distance, but it was definitely a lot bigger that the strip of water that we saw, and I estimated the strip to at least 8 ro 8 meters.

Description of Area / Surroundings: Beach, near the airport

Full Description & Details

On the morning of Saturday October 8 2005 my wife and I dropped my 18 year old daughter at school. It was about 6:50 am and we decided to go to a nearby beach to wait for the shops to open so that we can have our breakfast. We reached the beach just about 7 am.

While at the beach we sat on the concrete steps facing to sea to the west. It was 7:05 am and the sun was already shining very brightly when my wife noticed something unusual on the water about 500 meters off shore and she brought my attention to it. What I saw looked like a strip of white wave breaking on the water surface and I told her that.

However instead of moving towards shore, the 'wave' was moving across the water parallel to the beach away towards our left.


She then asked me whether it was a dolphin instead, but I told her it was moving too fast for even a dolphin and probably way too big. The 'white strip of wave' by my estimation, was at least about 8 to 9 meters long. It was definitely not a boat either, because what I could see was just a strip of water breaking on the surface and nothing above.

Now, the beach that we were at was right in the centre of a gentle bay with the Kota Kinabalu International Airport about 3 kilometers away to our left at the end of the bay. The moving strip of white water was moving towards the airport at a speed of maybe about 30 or 40 Kmh.

After about 2 minutes and maybe a thousand meter from where we first noticed it, a grey/white craft broke out of the water right were the white wave was and it continued to move in the same direction except this time it was flying in the air.

From what I could see, I could not make out any conventional means of propulsion that I know of, no propeller, no rotors, no jet exhaust and completely silent from where I was. While at the distance I could here the planes taking off and landing earlier, this flying vessel was totally silent.

It flew straight towards the direction of the air strip and it flew low barely clearing the tree tops nearby and it went across the western end of the runway below the approach window which was facing the sea.

After another couple of minutes or so the flying vessel disappeared in the distance. It never headed towards the skies, but in fact disappeared somewhere among the distant hills.

I really could not find any explaination for this sighting that both my wife and I saw. Unfortunately I did not bring my camera and I do not have any proof whatsoever of this sighting. The were also no other witnesses although there were a few people jogging at the beach when this happened, but no one was looking out to sea while they jogged. I guess I was too shocked with astonishment to hail any of the joggers to bring their attention to the phenomena.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

I have no explanation whatsoever

Witness Background: I am Catholic Lay Minister and a Catechist. An educator of Faith. I do not lie.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting:

I have an open mind. It just may be possible.

Sighting of Large UFO Causes Stir at Malaysian Beach Resort






thebournepost - An unidentified flying object (UFO) was reported sighted at a beach resort in Tuaran recently.

The round blue object, which was said to be hovering in the sky near the Tuaran Beach Resort, was sighted by resort guests and employees.

Tuaran Beach Resort restaurant manager, James Dungil, 27, who were among the eyewitnesses said the object was sighted on Saturday around 4pm.

“I was in the restaurant with some friends and saw some guests pointing up to the sky.

“We were curious so we went out to see what the commotion was all about and I saw a round transparent object in the sky,” he said when contacted yesterday.

James said he and some others then ran up to the resort’s family living room, located on the second floor, to have a better view.

“I managed to take one photo before it disappeared out of sight,” he said, adding that there was no sound or shining light when the object vanished.

Several other guests and employees, who claimed to have also spotted the object, said it hovered in the air for a few minutes before disappearing.

Some even claimed that their handphones “went dead” when they tried to record the object with the devices.

Another witness, Donny Benedict, 29, said he did not believe in the existence of UFOs, but changed his mind upon watching the unusual sight.

“I saw the object for about 20 seconds before it disappeared.

“It’s strange that it did not make any noise like a normal aircraft,” he said, adding that he regretted not being able to take a picture of the object with his handphone as it was out of battery.

Claims of UFO sighting were also made in Hangzhou, China on July 7, forcing an airport to cease operations for one hour.

A flight crew preparing for descend first detected the object around 8.40pm and notified the air traffic control department.

Aviation authorities responded within minutes, grounding outbound flights and diverting inbound ones to airports in Ningbo and Wuxi.

Eighteen flights were affected. Though normal operations resumed an hour later, the incident captured the attention of the Chinese media and sparked a firestorm of speculation on the UFO’s identity.

Internet users claimed that the object was a US bomber flying towards China but it was neither a US missile nor a Russian satellite.

Some even suggested that the Chinese military was responsible for the UFO; a new missile or aircraft being tested out.

thestar - Sighting of an unidentified flying object (UFO) have been reported by guests and employees at a beach resort near Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Harian Metro reported.

The tabloid even published a front-page blurb of the object, which had apparently caused much excitement and uneasiness among those staying at the Tuaran Beach Resort.

One of the guests, Jemas Dungil, 27, told the tabloid that a woman shouted when she saw a round blue flying object in the sky.

“We came out of a hall to see what the commotion was all about and I saw a round blue disc in the sky.

“It turned green a few seconds later,” she said.

Several other guests and employees, who claimed to have also spotted the object, said it hovered in the air for a few minutes before disappearing.

Some even claimed that their handphones “went dead” when they tried to record the object with the devices.

Jemas said although she managed to capture a picture of the object, she did not believe that it was a UFO.

“What I saw was really extraordinary because it happened right in front of me,” she said.

Another witness, Donny Benedict, 29, said he did not believe in the existence of UFOs, but changed his mind upon watching the unusual sight.

“I saw the object for about 20 seconds before it disappeared.

“It’s strange that it did not make any noise like a normal aircraft,” he said, adding that he regretted not being able to take a picture of the object with his handphone as it was out of battery.

NOTE: well, it seems there were multiple witnesses and it's hard to think that something this size was either a balloon or military craft...especially in Malaysia. Anyway, I'm interested in your thoughts...Lon
