Full Description & Details
On Monday the 8th March 2004, between 2200hrs and 2225hrs, I was enjoying coffee with my wife and 2 friends at their house
in Berwick which is in the City of Casey, Melbourne Australia.
We all were outside enjoying the still (but slightly cool) night. There was a full moon which was visible only intermittently as it frequently became obscured behind the high cloud cover. At ground level, there was very little wind.
I observed 2 bright orange lights traveling at quite a speed coming from an easterly direction and heading west towards the city of Melbourne. (Berwick is
approximately 35 kilometres to the south east of the city).
The first light initially appeared alone and our first thoughts were that a plane was on fire. Within a matter of seconds, a second object appeared from the east and rapidly caught up with the first object. Both orange glows then seemed to slow right down to a crawl and at one point I thought one of the objects had assumed a hovering position. The first object then continued on its westerly route while the second one slowly gained speed again and assumed a northerly route.
Both objects then climbed smoothly in their separate parts of the sky (now separated by quite a distance) until they vanished through the high cloud.
At approximately 2218hrs, to our amazement a single orange glow, exactly the same as the first two objects came into view from exactly the same easterly direction (heading west). All three objects appeared exactly the same in size and made absolutely no sound. They all moved in the same manner, and seemed to slow rapidly.
The third object appeared to pulsate as it too headed in a northerly direction (but admittedly this could've been due to breaks in the cloud).
This event amazed us all but we cannot rule out the possibility that they were aircraft.
I am however, sceptical that they were aircraft because of the following;
They made no sound whatsoever.
They slowed almost to a standstill for a short while.
I have not seen any aircraft with continuous orange glowing lights completely encompassing it.
They were very low (I have not seen planes in that location at that altitude before).
There was next to no wind which would've assisted in hearing an aircraft's engines at that altitude.
I would be interested to hear of any further sightings in and around Melbourne at this time.
I am 36 years old and served as a Frontline Officer in the New Zealand Police Force for 10 years and had passed all sergeants examinations. (I am now employed as a Road Safety Officer for the City of Casey Council).
My wife also served as a frontline Officer in the NZ Police for 10 years. She is 37 years old.
My good friend, a 35 year old who worked with the Royal New Zealand Airforce for 12 years and is currently a manager of a prominent Aircraft parts and maintenance business also witnessed these three phenomena. His wife, a 35 year old again saw all three bright orange lights. She has passed all her exams to be accepted into the waiting list for the Victoria Police.
I believe there is something out there, but whether it has to do with other life forms or
spiritual beings (evil or otherwise) I am not sure.
I am sure (beyond all reasonable doubt), that what we all saw was unusual and I had never seen this phenomena before..
