Sightings - 1999

Date & Location Details
8-6- 1999
Tyers, Glengarry road, Victoria.
Approx. 5,30 pm
Witness, GM, observed oblong object with a very bright white tail, flying east to west for about 4 or 5 seconds. Witness stated too fast to get details.
Sale, VIC
Approx 7 pm
A witness ET. reported three spherical objects, a large white one and two smaller ones flying toward the horizon to the NE. The comments of the observer were, "This was an unexpected experience that I have not encountered before. It was a surprise and at first I thought it looked like a falling star, but the size and brightness of the light discounted this. It was beautiful. I did not mention it to anyone until someone mentioned it then I realized it was on the same day and at the same time so I shared my sighting. My concern is that I wish to remain anonymous"

This last statement is the main reason more sightings are not being reported. However, witnesses can rest assured that VUFORS respects these concerns and if any witness becomes known, they make it public themselves. The information is what is needed to help solve "The Riddle of the Skies"

Sunshine, Victoria - Over Ballarat Road.
12 midnight.
Four witnesses including two policemen observed four orange-red lights about magnitude (+1-0 astronomical terms). The objects were moving SW to SE at a distance of 5o distance from the observers. Viewing time about 15 minutes, before fading into clouds in formation. To quote one policeman, "that is freaky". One witness has an astronomical background and states, "those objects did not look normal and the police officers were alarmed as well".
Ballarat, Victoria.
5.45 pm
Two witnesses, F and KD, observed a silvery white disc shaped object about the size of a dollar coin held at arms length. They only saw the object for about 20 seconds before it banked into a controlled dive in a south westerly direction, then disappeared behind trees on opposite side of Lake Wendouree.
The object came from under an isolated cloud which the witnesses were watching changing colour at the time. They thought at first it was a star, then it began to move down closer as if it was descending and banking toward them. They could see clearly that it had a bright tail. Efforts are being made to locate the pilot of a helicopter flying nearby at the time.
9th August, 1999 8.45 pm
The observers reported 3 lights in a constant formation, with no visible shape, but equal distance between each one. They were joined by a 4th light which came through cloud cover. All lights passed overhead at constant height and speed. Then disappeared behind hill.
They were in sight for about three minutes.
Near Anglesea, Victoria.

Member Francesca Curtis, reported a diamond white object about a third size of the moon. It flew slowly then descended behind trees. The speed was about the same as a light aircraft. It had small white lights flashing around. It may have divided into two , exactly the same size or else it was two objects which separated.
13th September, 1999 7.20 pm
The observers reported a brilliant white tube-shaped object with slightly rounded front end with pointed shape at rear end, speeding from East to West at an estimated speed of 2000-2500kms The size estimated to be that of 10 cent coin width and six 10 cent coins length,
at arms length. Object was in view for only a few seconds.
The observer has worked in aviation industry for some time and said had never seen an object like this, let alone travelling at that speed. He said he did not believe it was an aircraft of any description. It was totally foreign. It was not like any shooting star or space junk entering our atmosphere. It was in the Northern sky going from East to West.

Three witnesses observed four lights. One large white light and three smaller orange bright lights within 35 seconds. As the major light travelled across the horizon with a tail; Half way across, 3 small orange lights appeared in front of it and continued to track on the same course. The last orange light then doubled back to the bright light. The other two increased speed and disappeared on the same track for 2 - 5 seconds and suddenly seemed to disappear. The witness states "The three of us felt we saw something special. The most important part was the orange light doubling back to the bright light.
