A Czech Republic witness at Brno reported watching and videotaping a disc-shaped UFO hovering over the Petrov Cathedral that gained and dropped in altitude before descending and moving away on April 2, 2014, according to testimony in Case 55169 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was traveling home from a pub in Brno when he looked up and noticed the object hovering just above the Petrov Cathedral that was less than 500 feet away and at about the tree top level.
"It was shapely, ascending and descending," the witness stated. "Later, the object moved east very fast, stopping on the spot."
The witness then went home, saw the object again, and was unable to identify it.
"I looked out of the window and I could still see the object, so i started recording it on my tablet. The rest is seen on the video. The object descended in the eastern horizon. I was a little bit scared and surprised from the event."
The witness uploaded one video clip with the MUFON report, which was filed on April 2, 2014.
