June 23rd 2:45 AM
There's a 50-50 chance I saw a genuine, unambiguous UFO over Hamilton at about 2:45 am last night. This one was directly overhead. It was a brilliant white disk, about 1/6th of the diameter of the moon. It showed its extreme brightness for about 5 seconds after I looked up and noticed it. It then took another 5 seconds or so to dim and shrink to a point of light like an average star, (not bright like Venus). It moved slowly north but disappeared after a third 5 second period. I would estimate this "craft" was at least 1,000 feet high, and could have been higher. No noise, and no rotating beacons which are fitted to helicopters. It did not give the impression of a police helicopter. There was haze and widely scattered but very thin clouds which were thin enough to let stars shinethrough. The quality of the white light was not as if it was a helicopter shining light down - this was an object that gave off the brilliant white light from its entire bottom surface.
