AUFORN Sighting Form Report

Source: AUFORN ONLINE UFO Report Form
Witness: Mr. Owen H
Number of witnesses present: 4
Sighting Duration: 30 seconds
Occupation: School Teacher.
Interests: I am capable at identifying flying aircraft where I live at various ranges night and day due to living near an airforce base and also due to knowledge in military aircraft thanks to my educational background.
Observation: I was driving home from Windsor to Wilberforce through the farms and approximately 400 metres from the small bridge which you cross to enter Wilberfoce I saw approach from the left side of my vision an object flying at about 1000 feet and moving at a slow speed. It flew across the road and then across a local camping spot and out of sight.
Richmond RAAF base is nearby so there is a good chance that this is just an incorrect sighting of one of their aircraft, but this did not look like or sound like any of the C-130s, C-17s, F-18s, Hawk trainers or P-3 Orion's that fly in and out of Richmond RAAF from time to time ( aircraft listed in order of activity, with C-130s and C-17s comprising about 90% of sightings). I knew immediately that the craft was not one that usually flew around Richmond RAAF however it was not a saucer and showed no strange characteristics in flight.
Description: The object was a solid black equilateral triangle, with 3 large solid downlights that did not strobe, approximately 30 metres in length each side. As the craft crossed my vision I looked for any sign of wings, tails and navigational lights or strobe lights, none of which were presents. The aircraft was completely silent, and showed no unusual flight characteristics when I witnessed it.
On a personal note whilst I was surprised to see the craft the unremarkable nature of the sighting and the look of the craft led me to initially dismiss it as just a faulty sighting, but since yesterday I have been unable to get it out of my head.
Location: On Wilberforce Road, approximately 400 metres from Buttsworth Creek Bridge, which you cross to enter Wilberfoce
Other Witnesses: There were other cars ahead of me, however I did not see anyone stop or look at the sighting as remarkable.
Apparent Size: Dinner Plate
Actual Size: To me it looked to be an equilateral triangle with sides of 30 metres each.
Altitude: I believe that the altitude was 1000 feet.
Object Origin: Westerly from the direction of Richmond RAAF
Object Destination: Easterly
Planets Visible: It was Dusk and cloudy so no stars or moon were visible.
Other Experiences: Approximately 6 months ago I briefly witnessed a small silver orb for approximately 15 seconds near the same area whilst driving on the same road, however it immediately disappeared out of sight and I thought nothing of it. Another incident I can recall on the same road but driving towards Windsor was my friend who saw a silver object fall out of the sky then disappear. I do not feel that either of these sightings are particularly credible or lend credence to the one I witnessed last night.
