Full Description & Details
Was fishing with a friend in hastings river estuary and, it was about 2am. I was looking at the stars, was an exceptionaly clear evening with no breeze. I noticed quite a lot of shooting stars in the sky that night but there were 3 that caught my attension the most. First 1 flew at a very fast velocity from east to west from what seemed the horizon from the east to the western horizon, I have seen many sattelites and they move across the sky much slower than this object. Then about 5 minutes or so latter I seen 2 shooting star like objects going from the eastern horrizon but going strait up into what looked like space they were also travelling at a very fast velocity. They caught my attension because I have been star gazing for most of my life and never seen shooting stars move at these velocities or in these directions before. Nor have I ever seen a shooting star travel so far without burning up. The only reason I am reporting this is because I was reading some of the other decriptions here and felt I had to share this. If they were UFO's I can not say but I have never seen shooting stars do what these 3 shooting stars done on that night. Nearly all shooting stars I have seen in the past have had a downward trajectory, 2 definatly went strait up.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
they were not stars planets or anything or planes or sattelites they looked like a bright shooting star defying what I see as normal behaviour.
I am an electrical engineer, draftsman, and keen radio operator. I am semi retired and spend my time persuing my hobies.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I have been studying this phenomonen for many years now and this was my first sighting, at first I did not thingk too much about it but as time went by I could not help but wonder about the behaviour of these 3 objects
I do not suffer from any kind of mental dissorder. I am an electrical engineer, I was not intoxicated at the time. I do not beleive them to be a halucination.
