Golden, shining object in the Sri Lanken sky -18th sept 03 at 1715hrson that evening we were playing soft ball cricket on the Air force grounds.At about 1715hrs one of the player had showed some thing in the sky in the last light moving slowly to the left side of the mountains it was a stick shaped shining object in gold colour.to my knowledge it was about 50 km away from us hight will be about 5000ft we checked from the radar & there were no air crafts air boned at that time.((NUFORC Note: We have inquired whether the witness, a military officer, might have witnessed a distant airliner, with a contrail behind it. However, eight minutes probably is longer than an airliner cruising at altitude would be visible from one point on the Earth's surface. PD))
