It is always a strange thing to experience a close encounter of the first kind. Experienced skywatchers will acknowledge that seeing something out of the ordinary is always an unprepared something. This is exactly what happened last thursday when the Transology team arrived on its nightly location. just before we were setting up our gear in the woods a light source just passed us by. It was huge, silent and very close (a few 100 meters). It had no tail, made what looked like a landing curve behind the trees and was very bright with a blue elliptic edge. There was no photo opportunity but the ETV (Extraterrestrial Vehicle) passed slowly enough to to observe it for a moment.
