It was a clear Summer day and I had no alcohol in my system.

I was at Ettalong Beach NSW at 11AM on a Thursday morning in November 2006. It was a clear sunny day. I was facing East and thought I saw a flock of birds. They were in the North East travelling South West.

I turned South to face towards Sydney and realised the objects were not flapping and were travelling too fast to be birds. They were some distance away but I would estimate them to be approximately 25 feet in diameter each. I already had my camera raised and took a photograph. Other than that motion I seemed to be paralysed with wonder.

By the time I recovered sufficently to call out to other beachgoers, the objects had vanished in the direction of Umina. By the time I reached home I decided I had imagined the objects but when I looked at my photographs for the day I found the photograph of them.

The colour of the objects was a dark grey or black. Their shape was similar to a cigar shape. I would estimate them to be approximately 25 feet in diameter each. They were utterly silent.

The height of the objects was perhaps a little lower than 100 feet. Their speed was 90 to 100 kilometres per hour.

I work at management level in the government.
