Weather Conditions: Fine with the odd light cloud

Description: Was walking the family dog along the reserve footpath from the newly constructed footbridge at the rear of Orewa walking towards the beach. EG from West to an easterly direction. I observed a bright light coming from the beach direction at as a guess about 500-800ft just above the tree tops in front of me as I approached the rear of Orewa College football fields.

The light I did not pay too much attention to as it gave me the impression that it was some sort of helicopter but as it got closer I could hear no aircraft noise at all and the night was fairly quiet so I would have expected to have heard what ever was powering the object, but I heard no noise whatsoever. The light got bigger and then passed over head at no more than 500 ft and headed towards the back of Orewa going in a very distinct westerly direction.

As it had caught my attention I kept watching it and then just as it was near the rear of Orewa the light suddenly disappeared. I continued walking and thought nothing of it thinking my eyes were perhaps playing tricks on me but then I saw another light coming from the same direction same height and then pass over head again with no noise at all as per the other one it disappeared much the same.

I do believe that this was a flying object (I.D. unknown) or UFO apart from the bright light being white there was no other lights that you would expect to see on an aircraft. (left and right hand side or flashing light etc) It was moving fairly quick pace, I would say faster than a standard helicopter or light aircraft but not faster than a modern jet. But...the no noise thing bugs me and has got my curiosity going. I would really love too know what it was. In roughly the same area on the 3/7/2010 someone reported seeing something similar to the above so this prompted me to tell someone.

TV/Radio: I did not and have not reported this to anyone as I do not want to be thought of as an individual who lets his imagination run away with him or her.
