I wish to report the following UFO sighting witnessed at 9.20pm on
Sunday Oct 21, 2001, in our backyard in the outer suburb of Avoca,
While standing outside in our backyard at 9.20pm, my partner and I observed a string of 5 bright orange lights in the south western sky travelling from a southerly direction and heading in a northerly direction at treeline height for a duration of 5-10 mins.
A singular bright orange light was observed first before other's appeared behind it at close intervals until a line of five bright orange lights were visible over about half of the southern sky. They moved slowly north in a uniform line until the third object dropped in altitude but not in speed. They passed just below the Moon (quarter) except for the fourth object which went through the Moon's light. They continued moving north slowly and became less bright before disappearing.
I observed them while standing in our backyard, and was witnessed by my partner. The objects were much brighter and larger than the closest star and travelled without any audible sound. The night was clear and fine. The objects displayed no characteristic similarities to any aircraft. Each light, being the whole entity, and remained a constant bright orange light with no
flashing observed. They were travelling in a rising angle. The Moon and stars were clearly seen. A vague oval shape was observed from a side view when the fourth object passed through the light of the Moon. Prior to this, all five objects appeared round in shape.
After sighting the objects, we accessed some information on the internet where we found information and photographs of orange orbs and orange ball phenomenom closely matching what we had observed.
