Long, tube-like object with small lights flying behind

Date: August 8, 1999
Location: Makena Beach, Maui, Hawaii, United States

"It was shaped like an eight-sided object, but long tube-like... there was a break in the object, and then there was a second (same 8-sided shape tube) closely behind it. As it passed, I saw many darting lights flying around the end of the object. It seemed to be translucent... meaning we could see though it, but it had lights all along the six-sided shape"

Full Description and Details:

"We were sitting on the beach with a fire, for mine and a pal's shared birthdays, when I saw these lights headed towards Maui from the direction of Oahu. I thought they were headed towards the airport here on Maui, but these bright lights turned and headed along the Kihei beach, slowly.

It was shaped like a eight-sided object but long tube-like. About 2/3rds along the length, there was a break in the object, and then there was a second (same 8 sided shape tube) closely behind it..didn't look connected, but it could have been -- and as it passed, I saw many darting lights flying around the end of the object. There was the annual August meteor showers, and you could see them above this object. It seemed to be translucent, meaning we could see though it, but it had lights all along the six-sided shape...outlined like. But I thought I could see stars though the long shape. It was like it was outlined in bright neon light, but you could see through it.

It was huge, and we all got really alert, and I was scared. I don't scare easily.

It flew slowly in front of us, then turned left, and flew over the top of Haleakala...and then we heard later (from other people here on Maui) down the other side and then gone. The whole state was a buzz with this for a few days, then silence...except for those that were together. We call it "The Sighting".

I had good friends having a bon fire directly up the mountain from where we were, and they saw the exact same thing.

I am an inter-Island sales rep, and a few days later, flying to Kauai, I met someone on the plane who said that they had seen the same thing on Kauai, and so did many others there.

At the opening of the Super Computer site (partial military) open house a few weeks later, I asked a representative from the Large Telescope company why they don't admit that what we all saw here in Hawaii was a UFO? After two short diverting answers to my repetetive questioning, he finally said, 'because the public couldn't handle the news.'

A second sighting in my life -- Many years earlier -- on the back side of Maui -- up in Kanaio, I was in a hot tub, and layed my head back on the ledge of the tub -- and saw three lights flying over the rim of the Haleakal Crater. They were blue lights. I watched them, as they traveled just over head...for a few minutes. Then they all of a sudden turned RED and moved very very quickly forward, and then disappeared."
