Monteverde (Costa Rica)

Sighted on Friday 28. February 2003
Reported on
Shape: Formation | Duration: 45 mins

bright lights dancing in the soutwest skyIt started with the four or five dogs on our property barking wildly. Soon the dogs all ran away. We looked to see what was up, and saw a single blue white light, like a star. After observing it for awhile, we realized it wasn't a star. It sometimes had red, orange and green lights spinning around the top. A steady bright white light was at the base. The light was dancing in the sky, making deep drops, and steep climbs, other times staying motionless. When it appeared the light turned to the other side, we could see the outline shape of a saucer. At times the object appeared to send rays of reddish light downward to earth. The light at time seemed bright and focused in our direction, at other times dim and focused away. It was mostly in the southwest sky, out toward Puntarenas and then south over Panama. Once the light disappeared, the dogs all quieted down.((NUFORC Note: We agree with the witness that the object was not a star, if in fact it was moving across the night sky as described. However, if the witnesses were looking in the southwest sky at 1:00 a.m., then the star, Sirius, is a candidate for explaining what they were viewing. We do not know what it was the witnesses may have been looking at. PD))
