Leon, a tow truck operator was making a delivery at about 3 a.m. driving
There was no other traffic on the road at the time, so no witnesses etc.
In front of him at about 100m were two semi bright orange balls of light. They were travelling at the same height as the gum trees and appeared to be following each other parallel to the road.
Leon observed the lights for about 15 minutes and then got quite worried (or as he said ... he s$#t himself, as he was sure there was something strange about them. He realised they weren't planes and decided to head for his boss's house to stay the night.
He said that his mobile phone started to play up and another strange thing was that the distance he travelled took him less time than it should of. (wondering if he had condensed time episode). He also mentioned that his watch was fast and the clock had stopped in the car.
I didn't pursue any issues re an encounter 'cos this guy was freaked enough as it was.
He did mention when he spoke to his boss that other people had reported seeing the lights at Millenew (sic) on the eastern side of Kilcoy. It was reported in the Kilcoy Sentinel last week.
I asked him if there were any energy sources nearby, and he stated there are two big transformers nearby and that Tarong powerstation is a few miles away.
