UFO Report: Winter (Southern Hemisphere) 2006.

Preamble: I have not reported this sighting, as really I do not fully understand what "reporting it" is really achieving in a global sense.

It seems there are few people willing to take things seriously in an "official" (Govt.) capacity.

The only people cataloguing these events, seems to be a dedicated, yet to some extent uncoordinated global group of researchers.

I am compelled to write as the event was so significant for both my wife and myself, that it is still a real topic of conversation today.

The Event: I was driving the family car down Lake Road Westfield at about 1 am, when I noticed a HUGE Orange object in the sky. I stopped the car and both my wife and I got out to look... Three other cars also stopped during the sighting, their occupants also got out to observe.

The object was huge perhaps 50 or so metres wide, with no clearly discernible shape. It was "burnt orange" in colour, towards the yellow end of the spectrum.

It hovered above some houses about 200-300 metres above them.... We were watching them in a southerly direction (facing south) and a second (similar) object was some considerable distance further south... I recall another witness saying to us, "What the hell can it possibly be?"

Of course we do not know! The object closest to us remained there for about 5 minutes. After which it sped off rather rapidly in a southerly direction, towards the second object. There was no sound and no "fancy" manoeuvres....

I must confess I am completely bewildered as to what it (they) could be and how an object can remain stationary, given its enormous size, at such a low altitude. I guess I will never find out.

I considered sending this to WA Researcher, Brian Edwards:

However his site was last updated in 2000, hence I think it has probably been abandoned... I will send this to the email address supplied on the site...

It could well be he has another site somewhere, that I am unable to find.

Thank you for taking the time to read my/our story Warm Regards ((names deleted))
