Sutherland - Bangor, New South Wales
Sutherland - Bangor (Sutherland Shire), Australia An Object The Diameter Of The Moon
Date: Spring or Summer 2000
Time: 7:00 p.m.
It all happened in the year 2000 at around 7:00 p.m., it was a clear night in spring or summer and there was little traffic-no traffic on the road.
We were coming back from the local swimming pool at Sutherland to Bangor when we saw this unusual light in the sky. I was 7 or 8 years old and my sister who was about 11 at the time and we both saw it including my mum who was driving. I know what planes, helicopters and blimps sound like at night and look like. This was nothing like it.
At first it was pretty far away but still amazingly bright it had a phosphorous glow. I think that's the word. As we kept driving it moved closer rapidly until it was about the diameter of the moon in the sky. It started moving up and down at rapid speeds much faster than any plane or helicopter or blimp could move. Then it would hover and move rapidly again. There were about 3 or 4 bright holes or 'windows' on the sides of it that were shining out an amazingly bright lights.
My sister, mum and I went round a corner and the object was out of sight for a second then we saw it again and there were two metallic bars protruding. I cant be sure if it was bottom, top or side because I was young and trying to make explanations up for it at the time.
Our car didn't have air conditioning so our windows were open at the time, and it was a fairly quiet night on the road and this object made no sound at all. Now a helicopter would have made a sound, most likely a plane but this was obviously not a plane, and a blimp, helicopter, plane or whatever explanation you might have could not move at such a speed or look such a way.
It disappeared as we went down my street. We leaped out the car, ran onto the top story verandah and scanned the sky for it, but it was gone and we were left speechlessly amazed.
Thank you to the eyewitness for the interesting report.
