OZ File Sighting Report

Followup UFOSWS Call in code 01280 24.03.2001 NSW
Time Reported: 8:55pm
Location: Macquariefields NSW
Reportee: Mrs T Report given to nearest rep: UFO Society SWS
On the above date, Mrs T received a call from her daughter who lives a few streets away. Her daughter was awe struck by an unusual object that was heading towards Mrs T's residence. Mrs T hurried outside to observe. When she looked up, she discovered a bright orange globular anomaly travelling approx 35-40 degrees towards Holsworthy (S/E). She described it to be like "the glow from the back of a fighter jet". Its speed was no faster than that of a conventional aircraft. She watched it for about 1 minute before it disappeared over the trees in her line of sight. Mrs T also mentioned that before she lost visual contact with the anomaly, it seemed unstable.
I then contacted the daughter's residence and spoke to ?,
the son-in-law. Apparently ? and his wife first discovered the
object as it passed overhead travelling towards Campbelltown (S/W).
Suddenly they saw the anomaly separate two smaller objects.
They then disappeared with incredible speeds in different
directions (exact direction was not clear). ? ran to the end
of the strata complex to follow the primary object, which
remained stable. According to ?, the object then broke
into three and vanished in separate directions (again the
point of destination was unclear).
Now this final act of separation became suspicious because it did not fit in with Mrs T's version. I then made an appointment to see both Mrs T and her Daughter separately. After my interviews I concluded the following:
I believe that both parties saw the same object. I have no doubt that the initial separation occurred. I also believe that the object took a gradual turn from southwest to southeast. However, judging both parties geographical location, Mrs T would have had the final view of the anomaly before it disappeared. ?'s boss also witnessed the passing anomaly who lives near the Georges river (S/E and closer to Holsworthy), thus making the secondary separation invalid.
In addition, there was fire works displayed in the neighbouring suburb of Ingleburn (north of Maquariefields). I don't believe that this anomaly was related to the fireworks.
And as ?'s boss is concerned, unfortunately he refused to be interviewed. Regards
