Reported: 4/13/2013 7:25:59 PM 19:25
Posted: 5/15/2013
Location: Newcastle (Australia),
Shape: Formation
Duration:10 minutes
8 points of light like "stars" Top four "stars" changing formation from square shape to a triangle shape.

Looking up into the sky almost overhead I saw 8 points of light. Looked like stars clearly seen in the daylight if looking in that area.

They appeared to be stationary. Four points of light were in close proximity in a square shape, the other four were lower in the sky but in the same area. The bottom 4 points of light were well spaced apart. I observed for 10 minutes. In the first 5 mins that I observed they appeared to be stationary then after that I realised they were moving slowly towards the south west. During that time I noticed the top four lights became dull and then bright (back to original brightness) As this happened the top four (formation) changed shape from square to a triangle shape. As I continue to observe, the 8 points of light continued to slowly move from overhead towards the southwest and continued into the lighter blue sky until they could no longer be seen.

((ADDENDUM FROM WITNESS, SUBMITTED DECEMBER 08, 2015))

Hi. On the 15/04/2013. I reported seeing 8 tiny points of light over Newcastle, Australia. It was (11:10 am ). I watch them with my mouth open for ten minutes. The main thought on my mind at that time was, "What in the bloody hell are they?" I was in my work are in security on my own. After oprox 5 minutes I thought I had to tell someone I can trust & whiteness what I was seeing. So I rang my wife. I described their location in the sky but to my frustration she couldn't see anything. I just put it down to luck that I happened to look up at that time and that place in the sky when I did. They were hard to see unless pointed out to you. I was am in my late 50's, but my long distance site is very good. I don't wear glasses and I removed my sun glasses to rule out reflections. I told my close family what I saw & thats all. To this day I can still remember every detail. I have no doubt these things exist.

After watching many documentaries since the 1970s with scepticism I have read a great deal of books on the subject since then. I don't believe all I read and I understand others not believing me. I watched these tiny dots for ten minutes. Seeing is believing that is the only way I could believe wether they exist or not. But what I find almost as amazing as the siting it self is that there was no news about it in the media. I just can't beleave that the RAAF only about 20 kilometres north of Newcastle said nothing reported nothing not a word. Did they know they were there or not? And parks observatory to our southwest. Not a word.

I still feel I have what I saw bottled up onside and would a simple explanation why... I may never see anything like this again and in the middle of the day? But I hope I do. Thank you.
