Full Description & Details

Whilst waiting to watch a movie on the upper decks of an RAN Warship, HMAS Perth, we witnessed many UFOs overhead. They were extremely high up (among the stars) and initially appeared to come from all different directions and circled before disappearing as though they had entered some form of hole in space. These items were also witnessed to reappear and after circling, departed off across space at accelerating speed. They were witnessed for over 2 hours and many of us tried to take photographs yet none showed anything of value.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

Not at all

Witness Background

Able Seaman in Royal Australian Navy at the time

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I supported the view that they could exist however now, I am certain that they do
