|While Looking at Venus and Jupiter SW in night sky I saw UFO / Alien Space Ship entering from the southern Horizon traveling North.
On the 2nd February 2023 at around 7 :07 PM, I was on my regular brisk walk at my residence and observing and enjoying the sight of 2 shiny bright spots in the sky, which, I knew were Venus and Jupiter- though what made it interesting was they were exactly one below the other in a vertical straight line- something not very common. This was in the general direction of South West looking from the residence. Suddenly, from the extreme southern horizon I noticed a very large lighted object entering my line of sight in the sky. It took me a few seconds to comprehend what it was. It wasn’t an airplane, though my estimate is that it was approximately at an altitude of 20000-30000 feet, moving at the speed at which generally jet passenger aircraft do. But it was much, much larger – around 80-100 times the size of a passenger aircraft ( let's say an Airbus A320). It was moving northward at a steady pace. Had Bright lights and a very unique shape - Kind of a Transparent Plastic Scale that has inches on one side and centimeters marked with black lines on the other. And all these inches and centimeters are joined by a single long line. All these lines ( 1 long and about 15-20 sideways) brightly illuminated. Another analogy to describe it could be related to the Spinal Cord of the human skeleton. So, the skeleton without the skull or arms or legs- just the spine and the vertebrae- but glowing brightly. With an aura around it. Another analogy I can think of is that it was kind of a large snake which was brightly lit up- this comes to mind because the movement of the object was smooth- as if it were slithering along at a leisurely pace.
At first I had though it was a meteor, or a comet or something similar, but ruled it out since the object was perfectly symmetrical, which celestial objects usually are not- and more importantly – it did not just appear and vanish in a short duration in one part of the sky. This object actually travelled the entire horizon from the South to the North, at a constant speed, until I could not see it any more due to the trees. It definitely not was an airplane, or helicopter or drone or balloon or anything that I have seen or read about in my life.
I am well travelled- over 50 countries- worked in 5 continents over a 3 decade career with the Government- am also well educated – double masters – including a fellowship from the US- so I am certain that what I saw yesterday certainly wasn’t a product of Earth.
And just to add- the visibility was excellent- pollution was extremely low- and the Air Quality Index- which I had earlier checked in the day because I was surprised that the sky was very blue - was the among the lowest in the country.
The sight was so fascinating that I was Awe struck for some time ( after having served as a law enforcement officer, as a diplomat, as a UN peacekeeper and also as a scholar – “Awestruck” is an adjective I haven’t used in decades ) , and I could remember to video record it only when it was about to go over the horizon and realized there wasn’t enough time to go and get my phone for the recording. So even though there are no pictures, I am attaching a hand made illustration that is as accurate as can be to what I witnessed. Also attached are my co-ordinates.
My own analysis after having been observing the night sky fairly regularly from different points across the world is that it certainly was a UFO. There is no other rational explanation to describe the object. Though It wasn’t similar to images of UFOs released earlier whether by pilots or other individuals and wasn’t flying saucer shaped. So as I understand it, my conjecture is that it was a highly advanced huge Alien Spaceship.
