Appearance / Description of Object(s)
It was hard to tell the colour but it looked grey and dull in the bright night, it was an elongated bullet shape object and there was what looked like a gap between the main body and the tail of the object. In between the gap it was red and fiery like flames coming out the back also. You couldn't see the flames but from the ground you could see the back was red and exrememely hot. There were no bright lights flashing but at the front you could tell there were perhaps dim lights at the front of the craft. The main, most creepy detail was the fact that clouds or mist accumulated and started swirling around the craft as it moved. It was NOT in the shape of a saucer like other cases and it was NOT a plane. There were no bright flashing lights and the craft was dead silent.
Size of Object(s)
It was very close from the ground, it looked about two metres from where we were. It's actual size was probably the same as an air bus or 767.
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
The altitude would have been about 7000 ft.
Description of Area / Surroundings
It was a coastal area, there were no military bases or power plants nearby where we sighted it until it went over Port Moresby and the defense forces spotted it.
Full Description & Details
It was 1961, and I was 21 years old and I was at home on Yule Island. I can't remember the date but it was in the middle of the year as I remember. It was a bright evening, the sky was misty and it was around 8pm. My dad, aunt and niece heard a commotion outside, villagers were screaming down at the government station so we ran outside and looked up to see what it was, it was a flying object. This flying object was cruising over the village, it was leisurely cruising across the sky about the same speed as a dc3 plane but was absolutely silent. There were clouds or some kind of mist that accumulated and started swirling around the object as it moved, this made it extremely spooky. It was hard to tell the colour but it looked grey in the night, it was an elongated bullet shape object, there was what looked like a gap between the main body and the tail of the object. In between the gap it was red and fiery like flames coming out the back also. There were no bright lights flashing but at the front you could tell there were perhaps dim lights at the front of the craft. When the object got to Port Moresby it was sighted and a defense force tried to intervene and sent messages and signals asking them to identify themselves (the craft) but they never replied, just kept going. It was announced the next day on the abc radio in Port Moresby that thousands of coastal Papuan's witnessed the object fly over, travelling from west to east. After it was announced over the radio it was never heard about again.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
no, it was like nothing I, or anyone had ever seen before.
I was born in 1940 on the 1st of July in Yule Island and became a trained mid midwifery and infant welfare nurse in 1963-66 in Port Moresby. I got married in 1967 and moved to Australia in 1974 with my husband and 4 children, only to have another child in Geelong. My husband and I have lived in the same house in Drysdale ever since.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
Didn't know much about UFO's at all before this sighting. I had never seen one before and I have never seen one since. I had seen satellites and planes plenty of times before but nothing like this.
I really would like to know what object it is, even if it is man made, or something un-explainable. It was NOT the stereotypical 'flying saucer' looking object, it was different and very real. I really would just like to know what this object was, as it was seen by thousands of people across the coastal area.
