UFO, or what?

Kimberly Garner of Kapa’a was driving on a road down to Kapa’a Tuesday night with her son when she saw something that bewildered her and defied her sense of logic – a bright, blue ball the size of a house in the sky.

Phosphorescent, the ball moved “incredibly fast,” and then fell in an area near Kealia Beach, said Garner, 35, who was accompanied by her son, Alan, 15.

It was the second sighting on Kaua’i of what could be a UFO in two weeks. Last week, another resident said he saw an orange object floating temporarily in the sky before disappearing.

An official with the Kaua’i County Police Department said she has no knowledge of the purported sightings or any others over the past month.

Garner said she was driving her son to a friend’s house mauka of the Kapa’a coastline when they realized they drove too far, turned around and drove back toward the beach between 9:40 to 9:45 p.m.

“From the left corner of the (car) window, we could see a huge, bright blue ball, about the size of a house,” Garner said.

The object was moving “incredibility fast” before it plummeted from the sky, Garner said.

“At first I thought it was falling star, but it moved just too fast,” Garner said. “I honestly think it was unworldly.”

She said she drove home and reported the sighting to her husband, Jerry, who “thought it was a satellite.”

Garner said she is a rational person who tries to find explanations for things that happen.

“This is my first sighting, and I have tried to explain it way, and there is no explanation.” Garner said.
