Description: In 1971 (exact date unknown) while driving south at about 7.00 pm along Barrenjoey Road at the northern end of the Newport shops about ten cars had stopped, and about 20 people were standing outside their cars staring at a yellow orange light hovering several hundred meters above the road.
We also stopped our car and looked directly above at a yellow orange light that was not moving. There were four people in my car including myself that witnessed this. I'm not sure of the day or exact date, probably a weekend evening sometime during 1970. A strange feeling was felt while looking at this unusual stationary yellowish orange light, there was no noise coming from the light. After some time we all got back into our cars and we continued to 1066 Pittwater Road, Collaroy (1066 Wine Bar).
