Location: Kumeu, Auckland
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 3
Shape of objects: Roundish
Could your sighting be a UFO balloon/lantern?: No
Weather Conditions: Fine with patchy light cloud
Description: I saw what I thought was an incoming aircraft but the object was orange so i went outside for a look and saw a bright orange ball travelling north to south at what seemed to be the same height and speed as a passenger aircraft which we see frequently.
I called my husband to come and look we thought it may be a helicopter but there was no noise at all the object stopped and remained stationery for several minutes then disappeared.
A few minutes later I saw two more objects the same shape size and colour travelling from north to south towards us one behind the other they moved to the same position as the first and remained stationery for several minutes before vanishing. I watched for a while thinking they may have been behind a cloud but they did not re appear.
I have tried to find a logical explanation for what I saw.
I scanned the internet the next day feeling sure that there would be a report of strange objects in the sky .. but nothing.. surely someone else must have seen them. So when I found your site I was keen to share what I had seen.
Firstly I ruled out an aircraft as the colour was wrong there was no noise and of course they cannot hover.
We then thought maybe a helicopter. We ruled that out because it was some time after the sun had set so could not be reflecting the setting sun, also no noise and never seen a helicopter stay stationery for so long.
Space junk ruled out because that would burn up without hovering.
A balloon of some kind, again the colour and hovering ruled that out.
Then of course to see 2 more one behind the other and following much closer than any aircraft or helicopter would.
I have never seen anything like this before and wonder how much we miss when we are indoors with the curtains closed. I have always had an open mind (I don't believe until I see for myself) but have been fixated on the sky every night since hoping to see them again.
Incidently I told a work mate on Tuesday and he says he had seen a bright white light quite large hovering pretty close to his home in Whenuapai on Saturday night but had told no one for fear they would think he was a 'nut' he said he was watching tv and heard a noise so went outside and the object was stationery and the light was very bright. Interestingly he said he stood and watched it for some time but the object made no noise so not sure why he heard a noise from inside the house.
