UFO Sighting Report - Australia

Craigmore, Adelaide, South Australia

June 16th 2001



Hi list!

2 weeks ago approx. I received 4 call in codes to follow up. As you know upon following them up, they all had been reported from the same area/suburb of Adelaide, and that the 4 groups of witnesses had seen the same thing.

This morning [Sun 17/6/01] one of those original witnesses phoned me at home and left a message on my message bank, as I was online at that time.
Upon listening to it later today, Helen Colquhoun informed me that herself and her husband had again 'witnessed something similar to last fortnight'.

I then proceeded to phone Helen, following is what she told me:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Helen:
^^^^^^^
Hi Charmaine, I thought I would ring you to let you know that last night [Sat 16/6/01] my husband and I again sighted something 'strange' in the sky above our home.


Charmaine:
^^^^^^^^^^^
Oh! great Helen, thank you for calling me, would you like to tell me about it?

Helen:
^^^^^^
Well my husband was the first to spot it, again, just like the first time, he had gone outside to have a smoke, it was around 11.00pm, the first incident was around 10.00ish and just like last night, it was also a Saturday night. He said, he went out, lit up his smoke and looked up, thats when he saw it! He started to shout out for me to come outside.
I by that time, was in my pj's and in bed. But I got up and rushed outside.

What we saw was 2 reddish lights, but this time they were positioned in one spot...South/Southwest... they were positioned one a top of the other.

Charmaine:
^^^^^^^^^^^
Did they move at all, did they flicker/twinkle, what was the sky conditions like?

Helen:
^^^^^^
Well, last night there was a bit of cloud cover and these 2 lights were actually under the cloud cover. As we watched the 2 lights, the top one moved down towards the bottom one, like it was meeting/joining up with it...but then stopped.
During this time, it looked like they were fading in and out, but, after thinking and talking about it, between ourselves, my husband and I think it was more like some low cloud wisps had passed over the 2 lights, making that effect.

Charmaine:
^^^^^^^^^^
Fantastic! Where they in the same position in the sky as the last sighting? and did they move around like the last sighting?

Helen:
^^^^^^
No, this time they were lower in the sky about 20/25 degrees above horizon, the first one was much higher up. As I said, before they were positioned in the South/Southwest of the sky, which was the exact same position that the first sighting was.

Charmaine:
^^^^^^^^^^
Ok! great!, how long did you see/watch this for?

Helen:
^^^^^^

We watched it for approx 10 mins or so, as it was freezing outside, and even though we were standing on a piece of carpet on the ground, our feet started to get cold, plus I was still only in my pj's.

Charmaine:
^^^^^^^^^^
Ok! yes it was cold last night!

Helen:
^^^^^^
But! Charmaine, we were AGAIN able to get video footage of these 2 lights! Just like we got footage of the last sighting, which I have told you about in the AUFORN sighting form you had sent us. Sorry btw, for not posting it off yet, but with this footage, it was much better and clearer than the first and longer. The first one is only brief, as the objects were moving, this time because they were stationery we were able to get better focus/footage.

Charmaine:
^^^^^^^^^^^
Fantastic Helen! Would it be at all possible if I was able to obtain a copy of these 2 video footage?

Helen:
^^^^^^
Yes, that will be of no problem. What I am going to do, is get my Father to put both footage's onto one tape. It may take a bit of time, as I would normally do it myself, but, I am currently having a few problems with my VCR so cannot. Do you mind waiting a week or so?

Charmaine:
^^^^^^^^^^

No, Helen I dont mind at all, that will be wonderful! and thank you for allowing me to have a copy. Many thanks! Helen for phoning me on this!

Helen:
^^^^^^
Thats OK Charmaine, the first thing I thought of when my husband called me out to see, was I must tell that lady Charmaine from the ufo organisation about this, and I wanted to ring you then and there, but looking at the time, I thought I'd better not and it would wait until the morning.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I again thanked Helen and her husband for contacting me so quickly with this, and also for filling in the AUFORN ufo report form follow up for their first sighting and also for the copy of the 2 pieces of footage.

I also said, "Well Helen, if you see something more again, you know where I am"....to which she replied "Yes! I sure do! and it was much better this time that I knew who to ring straightaway, as you know last time we didnt know who to call and it was just by pot luck we found the AUFORN Freecall hotline number!".

So, there you go another 'sighting' above the suburb of Craigmore SA. Craigmore for those of you interstate/overseas, is a North Eastern suburb of Adelaide, just past Elizabeth.

I will be interested to see, if I will get any more reports from the other witnesses to the first sighting that Helen and her husband also saw, I had also sent those people a AUFORN ufo follow up form to fill in, so they have my home phone number.
