UFO sightings in India
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
- On 15 March at 10,20 a.m. in New Delhi 25 members of a flying club saw a cigar-shaped object in the sky which was long as about one hundred foot. The UFO hovered and then vanished from sight.
- On 15 September a flying saucer was seen in the afternoon by about 800 people in three villages (Kadori, Borsa and Mangalda) in Manbhum district of Bihar. Mr Ijapada Chatterjee, manager of a mica mine, told The Times of India that the UFO was about 12 feet in diameter and grey in colour. The object descended to an altitude of about 500 feet, hovered for a few minutes and then soared upwards at an incredible speed, causing a tremendous blow of wind.
- Two witnesses Mr.Nikhil and Mr.Sabu confirmed and reported a UFO sighting in Chennai, India- the sighting lasted 45 minutes from 9.30 pm till 10.15 pm on 11 October 1991 starting with the descent of a huge gigantic Oval shaped object that hovered slowly and descended to approximately 500 feet above ground, the object was dark with bronze / gold edging under some sort of intermittent cloaking device. presumably since it was damaged or malfunctioning . the description of the UFO closely matched that of the sighting by Japan Airways flight 1628 over Anchorage Alaska in 1987- it was very large about the size of 2 city blocks, or 1-2 kilometers long, due to the proximity to the ground several alien shadows could be seen through the band of windows in the center of the object. these aliens with thin human like elongated bodies and long arms were quickly moving about suggesting an emergency, the spaceship tumbled for a few seconds until it righted itself, gained height and then vanished into the upper sky at astonishing speed.
- Shortly thereafter within a second, two long cylinder like objects black in color with red exhausts about 100 meters long about the size of a fuselage of a commuter jet with a sharp pencil like silhouette appeared and were hunting for the large ship for about 10 minutes in the area going back and forth in a patrolling like pattern, independent of each other, criss crossing the area where the ship was before. These UFOs then left the area in the same way vanishing at extreme speed as the large spaceship. several air force military aircraft then arrived in a few seconds after the departure of all the UFO's. this confirms that the UFO's had registered on the defense radars and that aircraft were scrambled to intercept the UFO's. The military aircraft remained on the scene for at least 20 minutes - the whole time-line from first sighting to departure of military jets was 45 minutes. the sighting was reported to the local newspaper the Hindu but was not investigated, both witnesses sketched the same drawings to confirm that they had seen the same objects.
- Total number of flying objects seen was one very large space ship, two small(in comparison) space ships, two warplanes, one helicopter and one surveillance or covert military jet like executive aircraft with military markings, total seven objects.
