- 200303132008: 13-Mar-03
- Location: NSW - Anna Beach
- One Mile beach 30k from Newcastle NSW
- Time: 8:00pm local time.
- At approximately 8.00 respondents report sighting extremely
large white illuminations travelling from the west to east about 1000Õ
(feet) in altitude and some 1-3km away, in the southern sky. The object
suddenly turned directly to the south at 35-45 degrees and speed off to
disappear. No sound, seen for about 40 seconds. There are no recorded
RAAF activity at that time.
- Respondent email from One Mile Beach, Anna bay
- New South Wales Australia.
- Sighted an aerial object, my wife and myself witnessed
at 20.08 hrs last night 13 03 2003 at One Mile Beach, Anna bay New South
- We were walking along the beach in a westerly direction
and were approximately two thirds of the way to the westerly end of the
beach when we noticed a "Low Star" appear over the sea west
of the land mass known as One Mile Point, a hill of approximately 80 metres
in height to the tree tops, from the beach where we were standing. Our
position was approximately 300 metres east One Mile Point. I consider
the elevation of the object was around 30 degrees, however this is estimated,
but the elevation was definitely less that 45 degrees.
- We were standing at the waters edge an saw the "Low
Star" appear in the west and travel in a horizontal plane to the east
directly across our facing path, at what seemed to be an even and regular
- I liken the speed similar to that of a military helicopter,
in fact I thought the object was a helicopter with its search light on
as several of these aircraft have been flying regularly in our vicinity
over the past few weeks. The object was not a helicopter.
- We watched the object for 40 seconds and I was waiting
for the sound of the rotors as the object approached across our path, with
a southerly breeze, with a little easterly direction, blowing in our faces
at about 10 klm per hour as we looked to sea and watched the object, hearing
no sound what soever. I figured the object was no more than 1000 metres
- The object travelled west to east in an unchanging direction
and horizontal plane at a height of no more that I estimate 300 metres,
then it suddenly stopped, then disappeared directly to the south. The object
was seen to virtually stop its easterly direction and turn to the south
the move toward the south and disappear in less than a second or so.
- I checked my directions given against the southern cross,
and I also am well aware of my local directional landmarks.
- We waited for approximately 5 minutes, watching for the
object to re-appear, however it did not.
- It was then I realised that the "Low Star"
like ball of white light with no other colours present was of a size that
would be several times larger than a helicopter let alone a search light.
- With the wind blowing directly at us from the sighted
"light object", when it was at its most eastern position
before heading south and disappearing, the most prominent position to transfer
sound to us on the wind, we heard no sound what so ever.
- We were not at sufficient an elevation to notice a reflection
on the ocean, and the sea was of around 1.5 metres dumping on the sandbar
about 75 metres from shore. The seas were dumping in a mild fashion and
would not have masked any sound in my mind.
- I have no explanation for the sighting, but am very familiar
with helicopters, aircraft, flares, meteors etc., and their behaviour and
am convinced that this object did not suit any aerial object I am familiar
- 200303130300: St Andrew 30K North east of Melbourne
- Respondents have reported strange skyward light array
events between the times of 11.00pm, 12.45am and 3.00am this morning.
Callers are stating that these illuminations appear to be huge neon styled
lights in a solid triangle formation to the north west of Melbourne.
