Description: I have been trying to recall the time this happened though I remember watching the evening news with my mum about 30 years ago and there were reports of some objects being picked up on radar north of Sydney by the airforce, seems like a coincidence which when I tell people about what I saw ...of course it was my imagination etc..

Talbingo is a little village built for the snowy mountains hydro scheme, surrounded by mountains and resting by a lake. I walked out of mums house and headed out to visit friends as I did I noticed what seemed to me to be the regular plane heading toward Talbingo Mountain and Kiandra way...I had walked three blocks before it dipped behind the mountain. Then as it disappeared another was coming back but I had only walked about a quarter of a block and it was virtually above me at an angle when it stopped. I was suddenly shocked to see this and stopped and stared.

My description above describes what I saw to this point, my ears felt like wind was blowing around them but no noise, it hovered in that spot and I went to run into a house of a local person to get them to come look at this and I only took a couple of steps when it took off at a sharp angle at a speed so fast not even a fighter jet that I have seen do manoeuvres over the town could match, and there was no boom or noise and it was not that high up as I could see the dome clearly.

I spun on my heal and ran only a few meters in the opposite direction when I saw the star like object do it's spiral a bit like a out of control missile. I was so terrified I bolted home and told mum. I remember different colours in the lights basic like red green white or yellow and in the maybe ten seconds I stood there a strong feeling of it looking at me. Have talked with mates and wondered if it was some extraordinary airforce craft but deep down I know it wasn't..then who knows. It was about one km up and the size of a small house though round and went from hovering to gone in a flash..locals used to talk of a lot of weird things in the sky and around this area am curious to hear of other reports if any..Thirty years on and it still gets me.
