- 25th of August, 1997
I received the following report from Mrs. S. of Paynesville.
I have known her for the past year, when she came to live in
On August 25 Mrs. S. went to bring in clothes from the line.
It was 7pm.
She saw a doughnut shaped object to the North East of her flat,
at an elevation of about sixty degrees.
It appears to have been some four hundred metres away and fairly
large for she likened it to a nine-inch saucepan lid. There was
a strong wind blowing making the top of a large tree move. The
tree was in the line of sight. The object was far enough away
to appear to move in the same direction as she did on the occasions
when she walked a few steps. Despite the wind, it didn't shift.
She claims that she watched it for about twenty minutes, but
getting cold, she went indoors to ring me. Unfortunately, I wasn't
home, so she rang her daughter who lives in Paynesville also.
Her daughter couldn't see anything so went outside to look again.
By now the object had gone.
The centre was black, if it had a centre. The annulus was amber
colored with twinkling lights around the outside rim. There were
also three very bright white lights equidistant on the outside
rim. From the inside edge of the annulus, golden filaments flowed
to the twinkling lights on the rim. There were many of these
filaments, and she could see them flowing outwards. I can't see
any way that hoaxers would have made this flowing filament feature
without very large expense. With all the trees and houses and
service wires about, it is unlikely to have been a kite. She
said that it was a very beautiful sight, and has often gone outside
to see if it is back again.
