Source: AUFORN ONLINE UFO Report Form
Witness: Mr. Des
Number of witnesses present: 3
Sighting Duration: 40 minutes
Observation: unusual looking, I often look in the sky for we generally have passenger jets go across the sky, and I like to observe their flight for a minute or two. I was walking to the car which is under the car port when I browsed up at the moon, and I noticed a bright reflection of what I thought was a plane, I walked on to the car and put my guitar in the boot,then went back for another look and noticed it had moved a long distance from where I saw it and it was only 15 seconds or so that I lost sight of it while under carport.This took my attention,Igot my binoculars and had a closer look. This was a very odd looking craft, and it appeared to just hover in one spot so it got the better of me, so I got the camera and took 4 or 5 photos which when blown up on the computer are quite interesting. I took shots until it got dark, which was a matter of app. 25 minutes, dark clouds started to blow through when i lost sight of it,but the photos prompted me to forward my sighting.
