I was vacationing in Barbados 1972, and while sitting by the beach I noticed a orange/red light which I thought was an aircraft, however as it got closer I decided it was an alien object. It was a round globe, flying saucer shaped, about 2' in diameter, with an orange/red color.
As it got closer to me it suddenly stopped, at which time it appeared to be about 2' in diameter.
It stayed in that position for about 2 to 3 minutes and than it suddenly dropped which I figured about 20'. It stayed in this position for again about 3 minutes when it suddenly took of to the left of me and disappeared.
No witness and never mentioned it, only to my wife. Some years later while watching a program on TV I saw the very thing which I had seen.
