#1 - It was about 1997 and my mum, younger sister and I were on a bus on the way to see my dad in Mount Gambier. My younger sister fell asleep and my mum pointed out the window for me to see. I looked to where she was pointing and there was a shape in the sky that kept flashing on and off. It was kind of like a football but a bit more round. My mum and I knew it wasn't a plane or weather balloon type thing.
#2 - In about mid 2001 and my eldest brother had brought his girlfriend over and her two sons. My sister, my brother's two boys and I were on the trampoline playing at night; about 8PM. We layed down on the trampoline to look at the sky for a second while we rested our legs. We saw what looked like stars but didn't pay much attention before we started jumping again. A few minutes later we jumped off trampoline to play with the soccor ball. We looked up at the sky again and the 'stars' were all clustered together and moving around quickly, some were blinking and some weren't. I felt a bit weird for some reason, like I had fuzzy stuff in my stomach (only way to describe it). We got scared when we saw the 'stars' doing that because we had never seen that before. We ran under the patio to where the adults were and refused to go back out and play.
#1 - The object I saw was blinking on and off.
#2 - The 'stars' were moving together in a cluster (almost all of the stars we could see in the sky) and some were blinking. They were moving quickly and were silent.
#1 - On a bus to Mount Gambier, SA
