Full Description & Details

Mother was hanging up laundry. She called to my brother and me to look. We saw it hovering over our garden plot as if looking at us. It seemed to land in some bushes in the edge of the clearing and went to and fro as if to right itself with gyroscope type movements. It was so shiny and we ran to it frantically. It rose as if to look at us briefly and then shot straight up and out faster than one could hardly comprehend. We did not have a telephone so we ran to a neighbors house so my mother could call police. They dismissed it as a toy or something the Millington Naval Air Station was testing and suggested that my mother settle down. When I married, I told my husband and he was also had seen one at about 5 or 6 as did I. He was raised in the suburbs of Memphis but on the other side about 40 miles away. His was with his brother and several other boys. His grown brother- a school superintendent- agreed having witnessed two objects larger and cigar shaped.

Sydney, Australia

Summary:

A bright star shaped orange-yellow light, approximately 10 times the size of a commercial plane as it moved overhead in a northerly direction. There was no sound at all.

Full Description & Details

At approx. 11:00pm a "ball" of yellow light became visible overhead in the south western sky below the low cloud cover over Baulkham Hills. My husband watched the light from our backyard swimming pool. He rushed upstairs to show me the light - after opening the western facing window I was able to view a bright star shaped orange-yellow light, approximately 10 times the size of a commercial plane as it moved overhead in a northerly direction. There was no sound at all. The light travelled at the speed of a commercial plane, and followed a similar trajectory for a minute before it ceased moving. It remained suspended over the north of the sky below the low cloud cover , and wavered intermittently for a several minutes. The wavering effect appeared to result from the light being very close to the cloud cover, and occasionally cloud passed over it. The light appeared to move slightly from left to right, but with an overall stationary effect - at times I wondered if it might be a flare. The light did not extinguish however, and slowly turned to the east. At this point I checked the distance between the light and my TV antenna to gauge its direction and movement. The light moved past my antenna, but started to become obscured by cloud. I continued to watch the light from my window until a low glow from beneath cloud cover was obscured by my rooftop.

I called Sydney airport to report the light. All aircraft had safely left the airport and there were no reports of aircraft on fire. My husband remains convinced that when the light passed overhead it looked like a noiseless craft on fire. I left my phone number and name. Sydney airport gave me a UFO report number to call.

I then called the UFO report line on a number given me by Sydney airport. The number I called: 07 3376 1780. I reported the event verbally , just as it is reported in this email. I left my phone number and name.

Next I called Castle Hills Police station and made a report, however the police officer laughed at me in a good natured way. My demeanour on the phone was neutral and calm and I reported the matter in a precise matter of fact manner. The officer said he would see if any other reports cam in before filing a report. I left my phone number and name.

Next I reported the event to Sydney Daily Telegraph. There had been no other reports at this stage.

Next I called Bureau of Meteorology. There was noone at the Bureau however I was transferred to an on-call staff member. I was told the light was probably a meteor, however I explained that the trajectory was not steep enough, and also that the light orbited the skyline below cloudline, then stopped. The gentleman was not interested and referred me to Sydney Observatory, where I recorded a message on an answering service that appears more oriented towards booking tours, than to reporting events.

Witness Background

I am a cynical, sceptical person who is scientific in methodology. I work as a Telecommunications Wireless Technical Product Development Manager, and consider myself to be well informed, articulate and non-gullible. I am seeking a plausible explanation to this event, and I am sure a rational explanation exists. I am hopeful of understanding this event, because it is unique in my experience. After 25 years in the bush and 15 in Sydney, this is my first sighting of this nature - even though I have had ample opportunity to study the night sky, meteorites, and other cosmic phenomenon.

Full Description & Details

At first, this yellow light appeared to be a satelite, tracking across the sky very slowly. Then it sopped motion for several minutes, and then it began to change direction and movement several times. The movements were random and for the most part, in the same part of the sky. After some time, the sunlight from the east was starting to creep over the horizon. When this happened, the object which looked like a gold wedding band, stoped movement, and turned red. Then it shot off into the eastern sky with tramendous speed and dissappeared.

Full Description & Details

I looked out the window. Something caught my attention. I wasn't sure if it was moving, so I kept looking. I thought it was my eyes, but it did start moving. I ran up to the 3rd floor for a better look out the south window. I looked again to the south west. I woke up my mom to ask her if she could see it moving as well. She did see it moving up and down and side to side. At first it was only a white light, but then I could see red and green and blue lights. I took a video on the digital camera. My sister and her friend both looked out the window and saw it as well. WE watched it for about an hour, and then all of a sudden it just disappeared.

Full Description & Details

My husband, who was very skeptical of UFO's, woke me in the middle of the night and told me I had to see what was outside of the house. We both witnessed three UFO's, two of w hich were a few blocks away hovering about the trees. One was directly above the trees in the front yard. It had multi-colored lights that seemed to circle around the object. There was no noise. We watched it for about 10 minutes. The UFO seemed almost transluscent. Then all of a sudden it shot straight up into the sky and disappeared from view within seconds. The next day I told my friend about it. She said she had heard on the radio that strange lights were seen in the sky. It was explained away by saying there were military experiments ongoing that released "gases" into the atmosphere creating circles of light. It seemed to be a very lame explanation, but nothing else was ever mentioned.

Full Description & Details

Me and my dad went out to feed our dog. While my dad was feedig him I was standing there and looked up in the night sky (which was and still is a habit of mine). When I looked up, there it was right over our heads, probably about 30-40 feet overhead, it was flying in a slow continuous straight line and not making a sound. It scared me and excited me all at the same time! It scared me because I didn't know something like this was right over head and so close and compleatly silent. I got excited because it was my first clear UFO. Beneath it, it had rows of lights, evenly spaced, the rows went toward the center where the red light was at, it was blinking slowly. It was heading south toward Bristol, Tenn. I was living in Bristol Va. at the time. The other UFO was ball of light, it also had no sound, it was off to my right (facing south) flying around in a field and seemingly near some newly built houses which were located on the other side. Its flight pattern was like a moth flying around a light. While the first UFO was flying in it's slow straight line, this other UFO would fly up along beside it, then it would break away from it and dip down in that field and fly in that irradic flight path again. This break away maneuver took place further away from me,in another a part of that field. This took place probably about 500 feet further south, but I could still clearly see this. I went to get my binoculars and watched the first UFO through them until they went out of sight. For some reason our dog didn't pay any attention to the first UFO, the second UFO I don't think would have had an influence on our dog because of its distance.

Other Comments

I didn't see an outline of it to indicate the first UFO was a disk but the configuration of the lights indicated this. Going toward a center, etc.
