Two UFO's seen over Ocean Shores in Australia

Two UFO's were seen clearly by at least three witnesses in the clear night sky of Sunday the 27th July 2003, at Ocean Shores in Northern New South Wales Australia between 8pm and 8.30pm local time.

One witness is a practising dentist, another a semi-retired actor, and the third (me) an IT consultant.

I personally took photographs which clearly show the UFO's in relation to the night sky overhead (attached to this email). There are some stars in the photographs which could be helpful for navigational data.

Both objects followed similar trajectories at different times (perhaps 10 minutes apart) which included sweeping in at relatively low speed from near the horizon from a south eastly direction to a position overhead, hovering, seemingly stationary, for some minutes and then seemingly vertically accelerating quickly off to very high altitude and dissappearing.

Both objects were bright orange in colour. The second appeared to be at much lower altitude and appeared significantly larger than the first.

((NUFORC Note: We will request copies of the photos, which did not attach to the original report. PD))
