Deanne woke up about 0330 hrs but could not get back to sleep, she decided to get up and go outside and watch the thunderstorm that was raging. She stood at the side of the house, which faces northeast looking over the hills and watching the flashes of lightning. While watching the lightning over the hills she saw something quite strange. During one of the flashes of lighting she saw a perfect circle, dark grey in colour with a bright gold hallow around it. The mysterious object was made visible by the flash of lightning. There was a second flash of lightning and she saw the object again. On the third flash of lightning the object was gone. Deanne stated that the circular shaped object was approximately the size of the rising sun at about 30 degrees to the horizon but made the point that it was 0330hrs to early for the sun to rise and was sure it was not the moon. Deanne said the object reminded her of an eclipse when the moon was in front of the sun, the same dark grey colour. The circular shape was very clear with a defined edge but the hallow was fuzzy. Deanne stated that the object never moved or made any sound. She does not know whether it was a something connected with the thunderstorm or something else.
Deanne was asked if she has ever witnessed a UFO, she reply no but went on to say that her uncle worked at Woomera during the mid 1960s as a air traffic controller and he told her mother that he had seen many strange things but was unable to talk about them and that he was sworn to secrecy by the RAAF. Unfortunately Deanne has not been in contact with her uncle for many years and does not know were he is living at this time.
