Location:

Lakes Entrance, Victoria, Australia

Summary:

Lights on a leading edge "V"

Date Reported:

3/30/2014 5:28:54 AM

Sighting Time: 

9:00pm

Day/Night: 

Nighttime

No. of Witnesses: 

2

Duration: 

6 seconds

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

Lights on a leading edge "V" or chevron shaped craft making no noise. The lights speckling the front edge were not particularly bright and with no organisation to position on the edge. The "V" or chevron had a slight curvature like that of a bird's wings which were set broadly and did not meet in the middle nor show a connection at the rear. This craft made no noise and has shown to move a different speeds with one occasion passing then fading from sight in 6 seconds.

Size of Object(s)

The width seemed at the farthest about the same width as Orion's Belt but overhead it seemed twice the width.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

Not possible

Description of Area / Surroundings

Small urban town next to lakes on one side and strip of land dividing us from the ocean.

Full Description & Details

My husband had mentioned to me seeing a strange "V" shape that seemed transparent with the leading edge about a year ago on a clear moonless night. He said he saw it twice that night. Tonight we just saw it while sitting together outside watching a few shooting stars. It's a new moon tonight so another moonless night. I saw a leading edge that seemed to be speckled with little lights. Not white lights but certainly not intense brightness. No other blinking lights that is the usual for aircraft. My husband suggests they seemed opaque, as if a light reflected off a metallic surface from inside the craft. Either way there seemed to be no notable organisation of the lights placements. If they weren't so clustered at the edge we could very well have mistaken them for the milky way which was what we were also admiring. The wings of the "V" curved slightly like a birds wings bending midway but it did not flap or show any flexibility. The actual "V" seemed to be broad like a chevron and did not make any connection in the middle to show a nose. The back of the craft we could not see however we had the impression on it joining the wings with a slightly bowed rear. This could be just our imaginations playing with our racing minds. This craft glided across the sky making no sound as it went directly over our heads. The speed it went would be like count to 6 seconds and it had passed then faded from sight due to the misty night. We have seen other things move with great speeds across the sky that looked a bit brighter than the majority of the stars or move very slowly then make a descent turn usually over the ocean or from the ocean. This is the first time I had seen anything this detailed and close that is out of the ordinary. Now it seems to have a weird vibe outside..like being watched.

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

Nothing I have seen in nature nor man has made to my knowledge.

Witness Background

Stay at home mum. I have gotten training as a medical assistant, aged care worker, and electro cardiology technician through TAFE or secondary college. I have worked as a "shuttler" at a car hire while taking classes in the states then worked as a nursery hand at a rose farm when i first moved to Australia. Then as a cleaner and maintenance person after moving again to Lakes Entrance since then have had babies.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I knew some stuff was going on up there as I can see a lot of movement out there at night with none of the blinking lights aircraft must have by international laws. My husband has seen much more than I have especially since I have gotten him an amateur telescope. I definitely feel there is a lot going on out there and I want to know.

This form is asking me for all my personal contact details and background information doesn't mean I'm going to get people watching my house, threats, or some other weird crap does it? I'm getting paranoid as it is..bloody hell LOL

Duration: 

3/4 hour

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

The shape was definately long and flat with a huge rectangular bright white light in the centre that cast no light beam despite being as bright as a lighthouse. Cannot say if it was a saucer shape or what due to the distortion of the reflections of the surrounding sky. The whole mass of the craft appeared to be a shimmering reflection of the surrounding sky, but it was possible to sense the mass, due to the weird distortion of what you were seeing. Rather like trying to look at the shimmering air over a hot desert. The rectangular light area was very clear, crisply defined edges, no distortion of that shape. We did not see any navigation lights (one red the other green) UNTIL the craft went upwards and vanished for the final time..

Size of Object(s)

The craft would have been at least the size of a quarter acre. My property is a 1/4 acre and that is about the size the craft seemed to occupy. I would estimate the craft was at least more than 120 feet wide given that it seemed to be about as wide as the distance between three street power poles

Description of Area / Surroundings

It was a deserted country road at the time. There were hills in the east where I had driven from, with no lights and no housing on the right hand side of the oad where we saw the light (craft) travelling. There were no signs of dwellings to the left of us and it seemed to just be empty paddocks, rural setting.

Full Description & Details

I noticed the light several times, but one of my sons became concerned and remarked about it due to the strange repeated pattern of flying.

I pulled my van over to the roadside beneath some trees and watched the craft.

The bright white light appeared to be appearing many miles to the rear of our position, maintaining level flight till it reached a position ahead of where we were parked, then it dissappeared to only re-appear back at the position it had come from.

The light was as bright as a lighthouse beam but was not casting any beam of light.

It was travelling faster than I have ever seen any plane fly.

My son became frightened and begged me to go, but I was fascinated by what I was seeing and trying to work out what it was.

The craft appeared to be about the distance between 3 street power poles in length.

We could not see a definate shape but there seemed to be a mass of that length, but not of any more width than the huge rectangle white light in the middle of the craft.

The extreme bright white light was approximately the length of the distance between two street power poles.

It cast no beam which I found interesting and difficult to understand.

Another strange fact was the total lack of sound.

I figured that some sort of white noise was being used to mask the crafts sound as we could clearly see dirt, leaves, strips of bark, and small branches and twigs churning in the air about a power pole height above the ground, beneath the craft, as if there was extreme air turbulence beneath the craft.

Some of the small branches were about forearm length, which gave me some indication of the extreme air turbulence caused by the vehicles hovering.

Each time the craft was near us on the other side of the road, you could clearly see the intense white light in a rectangle shape, but the crafts silhouette was not clear and it seemed to have the effect of a mirage, ie when heated air is rippling and reflects the surrounding area.

The sky was only just beginning to lighten enough for us to see a farmhouse with its lights on, in a paddock to our right, across the road and some distance forward from us.

We saw a utility, (pickup truck) leave the grounds of the farmhouse and race at high speed across the paddocks to the area where the craft seemed to be holding a stationary position before it was zooming upwards so fast it seemed to dissappear, and then would re-appear to the east and repeat it's flight pattern.

Just as the dawn light began to emerge over the eastern horizon the craft showed a red light one end of its length and a green light at the other.

It zoomed off upwards at amazing speed and vanished.

The instant it vanished we could hear the normal sound of bids chirping in the half light and the sound of bellowing frightened cattle.

The sudden burst of normal sound was very noticeable and that is why I am convinced some sort of sound masking was being used.

I drove on westwards on the road and we came to an intersection.

Very strangely there was a white utility/pickup truck like the one we saw racing across the paddock towards the area of the craft.

It was in the exact middle of the intersection, stationary, with no lights on.

Sitting in the vehicle were two men who looked quite stunned.

My eldest son was very frightened and he begged me to keep driving so I did.

I travelled many miles down the same road till I arrived at a roadhouse on the right hand side.

There were trucks and roadtrains parked there and a police officer had been talking with some of the drivers so I walked over and asked him where can I report a UFO sighting.

He just laughed at me, so I never bothered to report it.

My 4 sons were with me in the vehicle and they all saw the same craft and watched it with me.

We know it was unusual, nothing we had ever seen before.

my eldest son was terrified that it was aliens, but I do not think an alien craft would employ the red and green navigation lights I saw on the vehicle as it left.

I am sure it was using some sort of cloaking device of either super heated air like what occurs in a mirage or some sort of new technology like the kind you can see on Youtube now.

I do not understand how the craft could have such a bright white light in hat seemed like an opening -loading dock in it'[s centre, without the light casting a beam.

It was still dark enough for my headlights to cast a beam.

I saw the utility/pickup truck headlights casting a beam as it sped across the paddocks towards the craft.

I believe the craft left before the sky became too bright with the imminent sun rise, for the cloaking device to conceal it's shape.

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

Definately some sort of flying craft, but not anything known to the general public due to the speed of the flight, the "instant" dissappearance that appeared to be caused by rapid acceleration upwards, & sudden re-appearance in the east. There is also the matter of the sound masking. Very strange as there was no sound emitted and no background normal rural sounds like crickets chirping or cattle or even noise fro the severe turbulence beneath the craft despite us all seeing the branches and leaves etc churning in the air at 30 feet high. We saw the craft making repeated flights at the same speed, same height, repeatedly from one point in the east, paralell to the roadway, to the point above the paddock to the east of the farmhouse, then rapid acceleration upwards giving the appearance of instantly vanishing, to re-appear many miles east again at the same point.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

The only thing I knew was from a friend who was a Machi Jet pilot at Pearce airbase in Western Australia who had been on a flight with another machi jet doing a triangle training flight from Geraldton to Fremantle and then to Pearce airbase. While flying to fremantle he and the other pilot saw an object flying paralell to them at high speed and they tried to follow it but it kept adjusting it's speed to keep ahead of them. they called pearce and radar confirmed the craft. When they neared Fremantle the craft accelerated rapidly upwards (right angled turn) at speed impossible for any aircraft they knew, and appeared to vanish instantly due to the speed of ascention.

Other Comments

I am convinced that cloaking of some sort that reflected the surrounding sky, was used to conceal the true shape of the craft.

I am convinced that white noise was being used to cover the sound of the craft.

It was VERY noticeable that there were no navigation lights used at all during all the repeated flights paralell to the roadway (the craft would have been about 5 or 6 house frontages away fro the roadway).

My son was convinced it was aliens and we were in danger, but I am wondering if it is some sort o new technology that no one in the general public is aware of yet.

My father was sworn to secrecy for 35 years over artefacts and equipment that he was supplied with during World War 2 that were technologically advanced for the time.

I would not be surprised if what we saw was man made.

The navigation lights ONLY came on when the craft was ready to accelerate upwards and dissappear for the final time.

Description of Area / Surroundings

It was an area off the highway just out of the city limits of Bremen, Ga. Nothing unusual in the surrounding area.

Full Description & Details

Driving down highway 78 at about 10 PM and saw a bright light moving toward my car. My mother was with me at the time. I thought the light seemed unusual so I turned around and followed it. It slowed down and I turned onto a small dirt road and drove about 100 feet and stopped. The craft was hovering just above the trees. I got out of the car to get a better look. There was no noise at all. It was a dark grayish color/almost black with blue and green lights that flashed around the middle portion of the craft. It was sort of an oval shape, but not oblong. It had what looked like windows along the side of the craft and they were lit from within. It hovered there for a few minutes then moved off toward the city where it stopped. A small red light came out of it and they moved back and forth over the city for a few seconds then sped off together. They were gone in an instant. I had never seen anything like it before or since.

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

It was not anything I had seen before and it made no sound. It moved slowly and smoothly just above the tree line.

Witness Background

I am in the medical field as medical support. I work for Baptist Health system in Jacksonville, Fl. At the time, I lived in Georgia and owned my own hair salon.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I have always watched the skies, the stars and planets, the satelites, etc. I believe UFOs are a real phenomenon and may be extraterrestrial. Why should we be the only ones in the universe? After all, it's a big place....

Full Description & Details

My ex wife (still friends) my daughter at the time age 9 and myself coming home by car after watching the movie Twister at the cinema,1996 I believe.

Traveling from Barnsley to Penistone, South Yorkshire, through quite a rural area. I saw a light moving from left to right slowly at tree height over the woods at Silkstone.

I was driving. I said to my daughter, look Emma a UFO. She said is it really dad. At which I said no I,m only joking, it,s probably the police helicopter looking for some bad guys.

As we moved closer to the line of the woods that crossed the road we were on, there is a bend coming up. We had lost sight of the light. But as we came around the bend there in front of us was a very large black triangular object hovering right above the road, as if it was waiting for us. To my mind wanting to be seen. We went right underneath it. My daughter and ex wife both wound their windows down to look out of their windows. Then they were looking up directly underneath the object.

I was still driving. The bend continued and the object was now, for me out of sight. I don't know why, but without any fear I turned the car around and went back. But the object had gone

I said to my passengers, let's not speak about what we have just seen. Let's wait until we get home. At home, at my suggestion, we all went into different rooms with pen and paper. I said let's all draw a picture of what we have just seen.

All three pictures were almost identical. Description. A large black triangular object, silent, no lights on the tips, but multi colored lights at the center rotating slowly. It,s size was probably 90 to 100 foot across, Possibly larger, no more than 200 to 300 feet above us. The trees gave us perspective.

None of us felt fear just amazement and curiosity.

20 years later I said to my daughter remember that UFO it just waited for us and then moved away. She said not. As we drove down the hill away from it she remembers seeing it just go zip and off , she was watching it through the rear window.

This object wanted to be seen.

I thought maybe it was a secret plane. But it wouldn,t fly over and hover over a populated area, like it wanted to be seen. And by now any aircraft with this ones capabilities would be known to the general public.

To be honest, I think myself and my family have been honored to have been given an hello from friendly extraterrestrials as strange as that may seem. I have not told anyone this story before except close family and friends. Weirdly it seems like it,s normal, or nothing that unusual.

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

No

Summary:

Was jogging and saw a blinding red light. Stopped and looked up and was up close and personal with one giant white triangle ufo and 3 "balls of light" I would describe them as. A 2nd white triangle appeared and disappeared 2 times during the ordeal

Day/Night: 

Daytime

No. of Witnesses: 

1

Duration: 

12 mins

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

Pretty much what I described above. The 3 balls of light looked like stars just bigger and fairly brighter. The lights on the triangle would go from one red one gradually getting brighter and brighter and then slowly fade out. Then the 2nd red would come one and get bright and fade out, same with white light too. Just kept repeating this pattern.

Size of Object(s)

I feel a pretty good estimate was about 3 commercial airliners in length. I fly alot and was plenty close enough to judge size.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

375 yds almost exactly. above the tree tops. Police helicopter altitude tops. Very low.

Description of Area / Surroundings

I was on the PInellas County jogging trail. Less than a mile from Clearwater Beach. I was in a vacant lot type area. Just a field and some empty buildings. Macdill Airforce Base is in Tampa. 15 miles away.

Full Description & Details

I was jogging and a sudden blinding red light appeared in the sky in front of me. I stopped and looked up and there were 4 "objects" in the sky. My brain felt as if it was on pause. I didn't even immediately know what I was looking at. Approx. 20 seconds go by and I realize there is a GIANT white triangular shaped aircraft floating above the trees about 375 yds in front of me. (I later measured distance). The craft was surrounded by 3 "balls of light" . 2 were in back, one a good distance in front. Oddly they were in a triangle pattern. I could tell they were aircraft but way to bright to see any shape. The triangle aircraft seems to be shifting or not made of metal at the top. What I would describe as boiling water looking metal or like a sonic boom type cloud. It also had 3 "lights" on bottom. 2 red , 1 white. They rotated on and off in sequence. All 3 lights were blinding like the sun and pretty sure there weren't light bulbs in this aircraft. Dead silent. The triangle was approx 2.5 to 3 commerical airliners in length. It was the biggest thing I've ever saw. As I'm watching these 4 aircraft a second white triangle appears a good height above me and flashes all 3 lights at once and then vanished into the thin blue sky. Then it appeared again and flashed all 3 lights and again, clear blue sky, no aircraft. Didn't fly away. It literally vanished. Right after that, all 3 balls of light were just gone and the big triangle in front of me rose slowly. Eventually going out of sight. Now for the strange part. Haha. During this 12 mins, I strangely felt as if I was 2 to 3 feet in the air and like a billion miles away. Also I didn't hear sound. Traffic, nothing. A man rode by on a bike and I felt like he was in slow motion and he couldn't hear me if I yelled as loud as I could. Finally I "snapped"out of it and noticed 2 police officer's staring at me. I decided to jog the other way as I'm sure they saw what I did.

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

Impossible. It was a giant white triangular shaped aircraft. period. Aliens driving? I don't know. Military? Possibly. Only thing I know, it's one or the other. But someone was driving it.

Witness Background

I own bail bonds companies

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I believed ufo's were real before the sighting. I always attributed 99% of sightings to military and still do. Truthfully, these aircraft looked so advanced I'm leaning this was that 1% but honestly your guess is as good as mine. One thing I know, 4 of the 5 aircraft didn't fly away, they just "went" away.

Other Comments

I don't see how I'm the only one who saw these things. Unless it was flying lower than I thought and wasn't visible from the roadways. I don't see how that's possible though. I was GIANT.

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

Dark triangle against a starry night, with 3 very bright , round lights. They were more yellow than a white color. One in the front, two in the back.

Size of Object(s)

I'm not good at size, but holding my arm extended fully upwards, it would be about 3 inches between my thumb and index finger.

Description of Area / Surroundings

I live in a rural area of central MA. My road is fairly busy during daytime, but very private in the back. Whitman Lake is to the north of my property, with a walking trail and dam.

Full Description & Details

I live in a rural area next to a lake. I have about 2 acres behind my house, which includes a barn.

I was stepping out the back door at approx. 10:15pm to let my Maltese out (on a leash), after turning on the two lights near the door. The first thing I noticed was the strange yellow glow all around me as I began walking down the steps. I looked up, expecting a very bright moon. To my left, flying silently, was a dark triangle with 3 very bright yellow-white lights. Two on either side of the back, and one at the front. It was flying from the direction of the back of my yard, diagonally across towards the front. This would be from the northeast. The lake would be to my right, the vehicle was to my left, proceeding further to my left. It was above treetop level, but MUCH lower than an airliner, even lower than the Piper Cubs that will fly over the lake. But it was silent, maintaining a steady speed of , say, a helicopter. The viewing lasted maybe a minute, when it went behind a very large pine tree. I pulled my little dog with me, trying to see it again, but it never emerged again. There was a sliver of light that caught my eye, but it was gone. My dog had no reaction, by the way.

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

No, it was most definitely a flying triangle, from my unobstructed viewpoint.

Witness Background

College educated, worked most recently at a Catholic school office and preschool teachers aide. Retired due to aggressive form of arthritis.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I have never seen anything remotely resembling a "UFO" in my 53 years before seeing this. I had lived in cities and suburbs before coming to the country the year before my sighting. I'd occasionally read about sightings in the news (Phoenix lights) and have always felt it's narrow minded to think there is no life anywhere else.

A bright, white star.

Size of Object(s)

Very difficult to say....estimate about 100 ft. across at that distance.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

About 12 miles out over the ocean and level with the ocean when we first saw it.

Description of Area / Surroundings

Rural area, campground, no big lights to obscure our night viewing.

Full Description & Details

When I was 15 in 1965, August, my friend and I were lying on the shore of a large pond at a camping area, telling jokes and laughing. Just the two of us were there; out parents were back at the campsites. It was a beautiful, warm, starry summer night in August. Looking over the pond, which was about three miles from the Atlantic Ocean in Charlestown, Rhode Island, our view was to the East toward the ocean, although we could not see the ocean from that vantage point. Eastward also lie Block Island, a tourist place in summer, about 12 miles offshore. We suddenly both saw a bright star come up from that ocean direction at a 45 degree angle and stop for a second. The light was much brighter and larger than the stars and easily caught our attention. It then, in a kind of jerky, hesitant motion, accelerate at another 45 degree angle, as if trying to free itself from the earth's gravitational pull. Its acceleration increased from that point upward, with two more 45 degree 'zig-zag' movements until it shot into outer space in the blink of any eye. We both just looked at each other, and I said, 'Tommy, did you see that?' He just drawled, 'yeah.' We were silent for a minute but then like teenagers, we just started laughing again. We both agreed that no one would believe us if we told them, so we never mentioned it to anyone. I assume the object came up from the ocean or came from Block Island. I judged the distance of the object to be close to Block Island. However, Fishers Island and Long Island were also out in that direction, but they would be further south. It was impossible to tell how far the object was exactly, but close to Block Island, 12 miles out, I'd say. It was about 9pm that this occurred.

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

Object and its action would not coincide with any conventional man made craft.

Witness Background

I am a retired teacher, Roman Catholic, conservative in my beliefs, but open to the existence of other worldly civilizations more advanced than our own. At the time of the sighting I was a high school junior at a large Catholic boys' high school.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

Flying saucers were known to me at 15 from science fiction films I'd go see, but I had never seen one in real life.

Other Comments

Block Island, Rhode Island, has a large area that is rural and unpopulated and could have been a place where this object originated from. There are several isolated large homes on the East end of the island owned by wealthy people. I believe that this object was sighted by some people on that island that night.

Full Description & Details

I was driving from Terrenas to Santo Domingo (in Dominican Republic) last year, and I was taking a picture of the sea-sky from the driver's seat with my cel phone and it wasn't until I viewed the pictures afterwards that I noticed a strange figure in two of them. One of the pictures is not very clear, looks like a shadow in the sky apparently turning, but the other picture has a very clear round figure with a smoke line behind it.

Summary:

I saw a little less then half of a UFO. It passed between our house and our neighbors house in Simi Valley, CA. I heard it coming and I heard it go silent. I know that I felt that "they" were familiar. I was 9 years old at the time... I am 47 years old now. I am searching for answers and the truth, and I am also finally brave enough to not be afraid of thinking that others will think I am crazy. I know what I heard, I know what I felt, and I know what I saw.

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

It was a disk shape, deep dark charcoal color - almost black, multi-colored lights on its rims and ribs... like a vinyl record, but without the spaces in-between songs. The ribs where larger then a record... If you imagine a vinyl record the size of something big enough to pass between 2, two story homes (just at the bottom of the second story windows) - the ribs would be at that scale.

Size of Object(s)

I passed below the roofs of our home and our neighbors home - the rim was almost at the bottom of our second story windows - I could see the rim and the top... clearly

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

1.5 stories high

Description of Area / Surroundings

Suburbs of Simi Valley California - 1 or 2 blocks from Aurora Elementary School

Full Description & Details

I heard the craft coming. It sounded like a jump robe being whipped around someones head - like a helicopter without the choppy sound.

I was half asleep at the time when the sound was soft , like a jump robe - I was imagining my Dad in the back yard whirling a jump rope over his head. And then it got louder and I imagined a chain, but then I woke up because I realized that the sound was louder then what my dad could do with any thickness of chain. Again... no choppy sound that you would expect in the air - like a helicopter.

I was petrified and paralyzed with fear, but then . I it hit me and I became comfortable thinking, "their back" in a good, familiar way.

I felt like I knew them and even called them to me in some way. I remember the connection - in my head, in my whole being.

Then everything went quiet, and I got up and looked out the window (to my left). I got up in time to see just a little less the half of the craft drifting slowly between our home and our neighbors home... under the roof line.

I remember lights that reminded me of Christmas lights that was on the rim of the disk, and ribs on the top of the surface of the craft... like ribs on a record without the skips to separate the songs. The ribs were larger then a vinyl record, but the metal was black and ribbed.

I was fascinated and fixed until they slowly glided out of my side between our houses.

I never had that experience again. I was 9 almost 10 years old at the time.

I didn't tell anybody because I thought they would think I was crazy.

I have to say that I've always been suspicious about a few things.

One, my sister has something in her leg that isn't normal.

Our new born puppies all died after drinking from standing water after the indecent and... why did I feel that "they" were familiar?

I will never forget this or stop trying to get the answers I "need"!

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

No, it was slowly floating and silent. And I don't even want to say, "floating". It was on a path - a deliberate path and very steady.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I'm 47 now, I was 9 years old at the time. I didn't know about UFOs back then, I just knew that it wasn't something natural or something I could learn about in school. "It" gave me feelings of being familiar - but after it was gone... I have nothing but questions. Even after all this time.

Other Comments

I need to know more. I've been through the obsessed phase, but have found that I can't learn anymore then I have from books or TV.

I wonder why they were so familiar to me - I'd like to be hypnotized, but won't because I need to protect myself from people that would think me crazy. I am getting closer to the age where I don't care about what other people think. They know I have an open mind, but I am sharing a lot more here on the site then I have with them
