Location of Sighting: Puerto Banus, Marbella, Spain
Date of Sighting: January 1, 2018
Time of Sighting: 9:30 PM Local Time
Description: I was walking up the hill from my house to the supermarket. There was a full moon and it was a bright night. Suddenly over the hill appears a red sphere coming toward me, no more than 100 meters high and it stops directly over me. I move and it moves. I wave in a touch of humor and my initial fear fades. It seemed to be a transparent sphere that spun with a burning red flame in the middle. The flame seemed like a wind resistant lighter in a storm, shifting and distorting to the sides for moments. After 2 minutes it suddenly rose high up in the sky and then moved away in exactly the same manner as I have seen in some videos.
Once far away the light was no longer visible. However there was clearly a silhouette that appeared to be much larger than the original sphere considering the distance. This could have been an optical illusion. It is the 3rd time I see one since Christmas. I never saw one before that. None of the sightings were as close as this one. Ifound it interesting that it stopped over me and followed me briefly.
