Location: Sofia (Bulgaria),
just like Moon of Venus phase , like hook , white in color
At 15:55 suddenly I spot object at south direction from Sofia near the clouds . First I think that this was human craft but when I turn my binocular(20X60) towards the object under the magnification I saw white object looking just like phase of Moon or Venus or like little hook .
At the moment I start our UFO-ALERT and take out all my optical arsenal , I telephone to few of the members but find only one of them and he was informed about the situation . The observation was hard because there are big clouds and for 25 minutes I was abble to see the UFO only for few seconds time . I try to fix it with 50Xpower spotting scope installed on a tripod but without any result . At 15:20 so many dark clouds enter all the sky that it was inpossible to watch the UFO and we stop the observation .
There are no witnesses for this sighting ,the other member failed to track the UFO . This was my third UFO observation in my life but this type of UFO I saw for first time . Before I read about hook-looking UFOs in russian UFO webs . Here in Sofia we(few amateur-astromers) have UFO-ALERT system about situations like this today .

UFO near Assenovgrad - Bulgaria
Thank you for creating this site. The incident happened some ten years ago, but probably you will be interested.
I was a soldier in the Bulgarian army. I had a duty between 2:00 and 4:00 in the morning. Those days I hadn't a swatch on me, that's why I often used to check the time looking at the stars. This time I saw a light, which was moving with random speed, changing its direction rather chaotic. First thought was that this should be a helicopter from the near airbase, but helicopters do not move like that, and do not have this type of light. I would say that the object was looking like a bright star, which was probably not so far from us. It moved sometimes slow, sometimes faster, and traectory was not straight, but rather chaotic. I actualy have some idea where this object exactly was, but I am no sure if I can say that in the Internet. At 4 o'clock my colleague came to change me. With him there were three more people. Later on he said that after about 15 more minutes, the object suddenly disappeared: 'It was like a falling star - not falling on the ground, but falling in the sky.' I would add that there was no sound, no flashes, no color changes.
