UFO Sighting Report - Australia
Please note that the reports in this section have been submitted to UFOINFO/UFO ROUNDUP and accepted in good faith. No investigation has been carried out by UFOINFO.
With the increasing use of digital cameras we are seeing more photos showing alleged 'UFOs' - many of these could be insects, cloud shapes etc. As many readers have asked to see the photos I will be using some of them and leaving it up to the individual to make up their own mind - John @ UFOINFO.

At approximately 10 pm on the night of Saturday, 22nd of August, Pete was outside on his rural property when he noticed a bright orange light quite low on the horizon. It was travelling North from South and its brightness caught Pete's eye. As he was watching it, it stopped motionless in the sky. Over the next nine minutes, three more of these orange lights joined the first light at three-minute intervals. The four objects sat together hovering in the sky. Pete thought this was something very strange as he lives on the flight path and is used to seeing aircraft pass over the sky, but nothing quite like this. At this point, he called his wife to come outside who also thought that it was an unusual enough sighting to wake a third member of the household.
The three witnesses viewed the objects hovering for quite some time. They reported them as being constant in colour, no flashing lights and no noise. It was a clear quiet night with no wind.
Pete's wife estimated the size of the objects to be as large as a five-cent coin held at arms length. At approximately 10:50 pm, two of the objects 'peeled off', slowly gathering speed and disappeared in an easterly direction 'faster than any aircraft'. The remaining two objects shot straight over the witnesses' heads travelling north at similarly outrageous speeds. Pete remarked on the way in which the pairs left the area stating that 'they were definitely moving in formation'.
Pete's wife reported that the cattle and the dogs on the property were going berserk. The animals seemed to be really upset whilst the objects were in the area. The witnesses were totally amazed at what they had seen; so much so, they have watched the sky at the same times of night in the hope of seeing them again.

Roger has been seeing strange things in the sky for a short while. Somewhere between 9:30 pm and 3:00am he manages to catch strange lights moving in ways he thinks they shouldn't be able to move! Roger has previously called to report the closest encounter of his experiences of late.
On clear nights, he estimated that in the one week, he saw them more often than not. The sightings last for only a minute or so and always involve small, starlike objects distant over the Great dividing ranges. In one recent interview on local radio, he invited the occupants of these strange craft over for tea; if only to answer the frustrating question of what has been going on lately.
During the conversation, Roger spoke of a fencer who worked the areas. This person had been living in the area the longest and had actually grown up there. Roger said that during conversations with this man, he too now sees strange lights all of the time.

At about 11:20pm on the Tuesday night of the 15th of August, 2006, 3 security officers were beginning / ending shifts at the Bega township, Southern NSW. One of them looked up, asking 'is that a helicopter?' All three of the men looked up to see a bright orange ball of light to the South, seemingly high in altitude but low on the horizon. Then, the ball of light came closer, getting larger and brighter than amber street lamps in the foreground. At one point, the caller estimated the object to be no more than 300 m up and 300 m away. The object flickered a little around the edges. Then, the three witnesses, 'gob smacked', looked on as the object hovered motionless without making a sound. When the object finally moved away and receded, it finally petered out of sight.
The three guards talked about what they had seen and then went about their business. The whole sighting took some 15 minutes and the caller referred to their notes when recalling the times and dates.
At around 11:45, the nightwatchman telephoned the caller from one of the premises on his tour to say that the object 'was back', this time somewhat smaller and more distant. A little further to the eastern sky, the object finally 'went out like a light'. The caller logged the times as from 11:52 11:55pm for this second sighting.
The caller has lived there all of his life, has been on the night shifts for some13 years and has never seen so much in the sky as in this one year.
