Gosnells / Armadale / Kelmscott, WA Multiple Balls Of Orange Light
Date: August 13, 2006
Time: 7:20, 7:30 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 5
Full Description of event/sighting: Sitting in my car leaving my sisters house in Gosnells at about 7:28. My sister was putting my daughter in her car seat when my bubby pointed to a bright ball of orange light. My sister thought it was a plane but after looking carefully at it, it seemed to flicker like a flame or hot coal then my sister turned around a little bit more and saw another directly horizontal from the other, but a foot apart from eye to sky. Then another and another and the same as before directly horizontal and perfectly synchronized. But the fifth was further down traveling alot faster than the rest, zig zagging in and out the clouds then disappeared. We watched the other 4 till out of view. Then 5 popped out about were the first one was then zoomed after the rest until out of sight over the Darling Ranges. I realized that they were heading towards my girlfriends friends house. I went to use my phone and it froze trying to call the number wieired but very true. I have never seen anything like it before in my life.
Thank you to the witness for the report.

I spoke to John at 6.30pm on Sunday August 18, 2006. John elaborated slightly on his initial report as follows;
The reported sighting was at 7.30pm on Saturday August 13, 2006. There were four orange dots of light like on a dice, in the same formation. Behind the 4 dots of light there was single dot of orange light maintaining a close formation. The single dot was about 500 metres behind the 4 dots. John and his sister viewed the objects for about 10 minutes before all five lights travelled in an easterly direction over the Darling ranges towards Kalgoorlie. They maintained formation throught the flight. John tried to use his mobile phone during the sighting and shortly after, however it (quote) 'froze on me'. John is a keen astronomer and regularly watches satellites and the International Space Station (ISS) in orbit. The lights that John and his sister viewed were like nothing he has witnessed before. John thanked me for the follow up. I contacted a colleague of mine at the Midland Police Station (vicinity of sighting), Sergeant Wade Adams to see if there were any other reported sightings made that evening. I am still waiting on a response. Andy Dillon AUFORN WA
