UFOINFO E-mail Sighting Report
Hi John. We live in Ferntree Gully, VIC. Last night (Wed 23 July) when my hubby & I were sitting outside on our decking, we spotted Two Orange Lights gliding towards us, from Upper FTG way. Round 11pm. One Orange light was very bright, the other was dimmer.
The dimmer one seemed to be circling the brighter one, as though it was clearing the way or protecting it...
Once they were above us, & they werent that high, we could see a darker outline of a saucer shape of the brighter shinning one, the dimmer one had none, at least, that we could see.
They glided off towards Boronia/Wantirna area's before fading out.
It was very 'airey' but calming at the same time.
Way back in early 1999, we also witnessed '12' Orange lights coming from the Dandenong Ranges, they came towards us, only this time we got ALL the neighbours from the surrounding 7 units to come out & see, (cos this was our first encounter & we were very baffled), which our neighbours did, it was incredible, we all saw these 12 orange lights, go single file, then double up, then single file again before heading towards the Full Moon & creating the "Gemini" formation in front of the moon, before very slowly fading out.
*I actually reported this experience to the UFO hotline which was located out in the hills, to no avail, only receiving a phone bill the following month costing us $395.00 to explain what we had seen....., definitely was Not Happy*
[UFOINFO Note: This is not the UFO Australian Research Network Hot Line 1800 77 22 88 which is a free call]
So, thanks to 'Google' I've found you & hope a lot more 'Genuine' witnesses do too, at least I know now where I can keep a log for any future sightings & read others too.
Cheers for now.
UFOINFO Note: As with other similar reports I asked the witness to have a look at the UFO Balloons website (now Closed) to see if this is what might have been seen and received the following reply:
Hi again John. Thanks for your reply. We viewed all the video's @ www.ufoballoons.co.uk & "No Surprise" for all of us, our sighting was nothing like the 'Lanterns or Balloons'. Ours was exactly as we described in our first email, Bright Orange light with 'Saucer' outline viewed as it was just above us, the dimmer orange light was just continually circling the brighter one. As far as heightwise, was lower than the Jet Fighter Pilots on an Anzac Day Display...
Thanks again for your time
