The following information was

prepared by the MATS Liaison Officer, 1603-2 ATW Detachment, Atlantic
Division, MATS, Nicosia, Cyprus.
At approximately 2030 hours on 10 May,
in the city of Paphos, southwest Cyprus, a group of
persons, including a noted British scientist, sighted an unidentified object
which appeared to rise
sharply from the level of the sea and disappeared into the sky. The
object appeared to the observers to be of a circular shape and emitted a
luminous light. It appeared to waver back and forth for a brief interval
before fading out of sight directly overhead. At the time of the incident,
the sky was clear and there was no air traffic in the vicinity of Cyprus.
