Description: I was in a car with two friends driving on the Pacific highway about 25 minutes north of Grafton, New South Wales. It was getting late in the afternoon. My friend was driving, I was sitting in the front passenger seat, and our other friend was in the back.

I was getting tired and was about to go to sleep when all of a sudden my friend who was driving yelled out "what is that in the sky?"....I looked up and only about 750 metres above the ground was a huge silvery/grey metallic object. It was circular.. (like a round tablet shape) with round orange lights going all around it.

It hovered above the highway for about 10 seconds then went slowly over to the east above some trees then simply vanished into thin air..literally vanished. We couldn't believe the size of this object..easily as big as 3 football fields. We had to pull over at the next petrol station as we were all a bit shaken.

There were other cars on the highway and my friends and I always question whether other motorists saw it too?..It was simply too large not to have been seen by others. This happened in 1997 and I'm still baffled by what we saw that day.
