AUFORN Sighting Form Report
20.06.08 IPSWICH - SILKSTONE (QLD) 1500hrs (DL)
Source: AUFORN ONLINE Report Form
Witness: MR. DANIEL T & JARRED
Number of witnesses present: 2
Sighting Duration: 15 minutes
Observation: While walking back from a mates place, I looked north towards a dark cloud over the mountains outside of ipswich and saw a single orange light. I asked my friend if he could also see it and he did. at first we could notice one but as we carefully scaned the coloud we could see at least 20 - 30 lights moving slowly up into the clouds heading east towards bribane.
We started to ask ourselves what exactly we were seeing. It was overcast so it could not have been light reflecting off the objects but rather the objects giving off lights. I doubt it was planes from amberly airbase because they have always been flying alone or in two's. Some of these objects were flying in a formation forming a V and others were in a straight line heading east.
We also noticed tow other objects flying below the lights and also heading east, they could have been fighter jets because there were two. we noticed they were folling the lights.
We didnt think anything of this until now.
Description: They were quite far away and we could not hear anything, we were lucky to have even noticed them at all because they were so far away they were dim.
Location: I was on Glebe road, at the lights or intersection between glebe road and south station road. Walking from thompson street to crown street. after seeing them we stood and watched for around five minutes until they had disappeared into the clouds.
Apparent Size: Star.
Actual Size: they must have been the size of a house for us to have seen them from that distance. the two other objects seemed a bit larger then the lights.
