Description: I was in the kitchen when I noticed a light flash on my neighbours window. Initially thought it was lightning. I asked my 10yr old son to collect the pet bowls from outside. He sang out to say their was three white lights in a formation of a triangle in the distance moving. By the time my other son and I went out side they were gone. We sat and watched the night sky for another 10 minutes and saw nothing. We would love to know if anyone else had seen these? or know what they are.
Thanks John for posting our submission.
I have done a search today to see if there was any other reports. To my amazement had discovered this one which happened a few years ago. Sounds similar doesn't it.. Its also in the direction where my son said he saw the lights he did say they were moving also which I forgot to add to my submission. We do know they weren't helicopters, when helicopters base is close by you get to know the difference with the lights from helicopters.
AUSTRALIAN HELICOPTERS STALKED BY A UFO
A solitary UFO approached two Australian rescue helicopters near Lismore, a city near the Queensland/ New South Wales border 100 miles (160 kilometers) south of Brisbane.
The first incident took place Monday, September 29, 1997, as a Northern Rivers helicopter was returning to Lismore from a flight to Brisbane at around midnight. The Westpac flight crew "watched the flight of an unidentified flying object" just south of Jacobs Well on the Gold Coast. "The UFO had three bright lights evenly spaced along the side of it. The pilot said it 'seemed to be flat in appearance.' The UFO resembled "an aircraft banking" and "after one minute, it dropped from sight."
On Wednesday, October 1, 1997, Wayne Fisher and Rob Hill, pilots for the Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Service, were "flying at 7,000 feet in a clear night sky" when a bright light suddenly illuminated the interior of their helicopter. "The sudden burst of 'white light' was at first thought to be lightning, but the sky was clear and the light came from above and to the rear of the aircraft."
"Fearing a collision with another aircraft, the pilot immediately radioed Brisbane Air Service. It was confirmed that 'there is nothing within miles of you.' Fisher continued his southward flight to Lismore.
At 10:45 p.m., "Mr. W.P. and his 15-year-old daughter, K, were driving in the Ballina area when they saw 'a very large, round metallic bright blue object that quickly crossed the night sky in four or five seconds.'"
