UFO with 'light extensions' seen by many in Namibia

Date: August 16, 1976
Location: Walvish Bay, Namibia

Several people witnessed a strange object over the wilderness in Walvish Bay, Namibia, Africa. This same object was also seen one month earlier. It was described as having a top (with a round ball underneath) that shone brilliantly. Two light extensions were also shining and shot off something which looked like sparks.

This strange phenomena (illustrated above) was observed yesterday (Aug 16th) morning at approximately 6:30 a.m. in the sky over the wilderness in Walvish Bay. Several people notified the Namib Times about the appearance of this strange phenomena, which disappeared around 7:30 a.m. in the sky. No one can say for certain what it was.

This same object, or one like it, about a month ago, had the fishermen at sea guessing about it. One of our readers, Mr. Dieter Krauer clearly observed the top, (with a round ball underneath) shining brilliantly. The two light extensions were also shining and shot off something which looked like sparks.

Mr. Krauer also said that he took some photographs of the strange phenomena, but he believes the distance was too great.

Several other people, among whom were two non-whites, also described the phenomena as in the sketch above of the Namib Times.

Some people referred to the phenomena as a 'Space Monster' and said that with the rising of the sun, the 'Monster' faded and later disappeared completely.
