Call in from UFOR NSW web site
Reporting Date: Tue, 20 Mar 2001 06:04:56 +0700
S_Duration: 30 minutes
What happened: At approx. 2.10am myself and another family member
noticed about 8 bright lights dancing in the sky, not making any
particular patern or formation. We disregarded for a few seconds
thinking it might be a light show, but then realising the time and then
noticing no beam of light projecting this image from the direction of
the earth but rather it appearing to be project from beind the clouds.
The lights appeared to move around from one point to another, say
10-15kms, in seconds (if that) then stopped and hovered for a few
minutes at a time before moving around again. We then noticed a much
larger, brighter light from behind some clouds. Suddenly the 8 lights
seemed to zoom, some 30kms, into the this light joined by another 20 or
more which seemed only visible at 5-10km range around the bigger light
and within 2 seconds they scattered from this light and spread out again
to dance and hover at 2-3 minutes intervals. This went on for about 1/2
hour and then the lights again zoomed into the larg
We did see a helicopter at one point during this sighting. We noticed that in terms of altitude that these lights must have been atleast 2-3 times as high.
Unusual: There were no sounds and the objects were glowing white.
Location: We were in Five Dock and the lights seemed to dance and hover about what seemed to us to be Five Dock/Drummoyne/Balmain/City and the bigger light appeared to hover highest and above the City.
Weather_conditions: Grey night, white cloud cover.
Physical_stuff: I think that the dancing and hovering lights were perhaps, say as big as a standard house and the bigger light was about 20 times larger. They seemed to travel in seconds, a distance of 10-15kms.
