AUFORN Sighting Form Report
07.06.10 TENNANT CREEK (NT) 19:00hrs
Source: AUFORN ONLINE UFO Report Form
Witness: Mr. Matt B + pilot.
Number of witnesses present: 2
Sighting Duration: 5 minutes.
Occupation: Navigator \ Aerial Sureying Company
Observation: I can clarify exact time and date at a later date if needed but off the top of my head it was around the middle to end of June 2010. I work as a Navigator for an Aerial Surveying Company. We were flying from Kununurra WA to Tennant Creek NT early evening. We were on final approach to TC when both, I and the pilot both noticed 4 to 5 amber lights to the north of us. It was hard to gauge their distance as they were blinking on and off at times. However, I would estimate they were at a distance of no more than 10 miles away as it was an extremely clear night.
They would slowly move in different directions to each other while still staying in close proximity together. Every now and then, one would drop vertically down and then blink out and then relight up to a brilliant amber colour and join the others.
The pilot joked that we were seeing "ooofo's" and then continued to land the plane. I lost sight of the objects about 100ft from the ground. There was another plane in front of us coming in from the east which was at a lower altitude and landing before us and I would say if anyone had looked out to their right, they would have seen the lights too.
This was not the first time I have seen strange aerial phenomena and might report it later, but it was nearly twelve years ago.
Description: Slow movements in and out of formation with vertical drops periodically before returning to the group.
Location: Airborne ferry landing at Tennant Creek
Other Witnesses: Just the pilot but he would prefer not to be named at this time.
Actual Size: Too hard to be accurate due to time of day and distance.
Altitude: They were slightly higher initially while we were at 4000ft.
Object Origin: They were to the North of us as we were flying East.
Object Destination: Lost sight of them due to us landing.
Moon Visible: I Can't recall.
