Sighting Reports Previous to 1990

Man Has Close Encounter With Large Blue Sphere


Date of Sighting: November, 1979
Time of Sighting: 03:30 AM
Date Reported: May 30, 2005
Location: Kaneohe, Hawaii (About 10 Miles NE of Honolulu)
Latitude:  21.4 Degrees North
Longitude:  157.8 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Number Witnesses Interviewed:
Weather: Unknown

Note: Witness consented to use of his name in this report.

Description:  Mike Reilly saw a globe, perhaps twice the size of a US bowling ball (maybe 18 inches in diameter), emitting a VERY bright blue light but NO SOUND, nor odor, and it hovered in front of me, 10-15 feet away, about 5 feet off of the ground, and then left my locale at incredible speed, leaving a blue trail of light in my vision, over the nearby hills and out of sight in a second---not more than 1 1/2 seconds--this is the condensed version, but contains all relevant detail.

Additional Information Provided by Witness: I was delivering papers that night/morning, and I had to get out of the car and walk to a porch as it was hard to see. As I was walking back to my car, the entire area became lit up with blue light. I turned around and spotted this blue sphere moving over the house, maintaining a constant distance above the roof and moving slowly, certainly not the flight path of something thrown from the other side of the house, nor something "flying"---no sound, nor smells. I came down and hovered right in front of me, 5 feet off the ground and 15-20 feet from me. It seems to me that as soon as I began actually "thinking" again, after my initial shock & awe, it sensed my inquisitiveness and then took off at high speed, going over the horizon past the top of the hill, and it was really fast. Anything that could do that obviously did not have to deal with gravity or acceleration forces.  (The speed would have squashed anything inside.) I never saw anything again, but sometimes wonder what the heck it was.  It makes me positive that we are not alone, but nothing exciting happened, just that it broke all the "rules."

Investigator's Notes:  This case fits into the category of close encounters.  Most orb or sphere sightings are red in color.  The witness also describes a blue trail emission from the light as it departed.  Both of these factors make this sighting more unusual.  This case falls into the unidentified category and no investigation can be done due to the fact that the sighting occurred over 25 years ago.
