sighting of the Mother ship "UFO" Charman Rd Cheltenham Vic , Australia 1987-1988

It was a full moon, 1987-1988 beginning of summer in daylight savings time, clear sky's, the weather was warm. We were traveling in our car on Charman road Cheltenham Victoria, Australia, there was a petrol station in the corner but was closed at that time, those days.

Soon after Nepean Hwy, first lights heading to the Cheltenham shopping strip, as we were to stop at the red lights. Ex husband my daughter and myself noticed a huge object almost as if it was parked above us. It was a huge space ship, above about 4 to 5 story's high in distance, maybe closer directly above us, could not believe our eyes, we were not scared but very shocked and nerves.

There were few other cars going in different directions as well. Everyone just started to toot their horns and just froze for a little while.

The object was covering almost all of the above sky view, it was like what they call the '"Mother ship". It looked round underneath the object, it had heaps of bright lights underneath the craft. The lights were turning around in different directions according to the rows, and was like turning more then one direction, it was like, looking into a night view of another city with all the lights on.

Colour of the object was dark grey and metal or steel like, but a rough surface, object looked high in height and did not look completely round on the top level, rather kind of some corners around the top edges it was unbelievably silent, no sound or wind coming from the huge object, and did not see any aliens in sight. It was almost like the spaceship that you see in some movies these days, but sound turn off. It was like observing the area for at least 5-7 mins or more.

Then suddenly started to move in high speed directly up and up for a few minutes, then slightly angled towards the sea with a higher speed until it was about the size of the moon and paused for awhile, During this period the lights turned off and only looked like a grey saucer, and within seconds shot up into the sky slightly direction of the sea but disappeared up into the sky's atmosphere.

Soon after arriving at a friends house I phone the TV news channel to report it, from what I remember it was channel 7. I reported all the information above, and was told that they would investigate, and call me back, which few hours later they did. But only to tell me that, so many other people have also reported it and after their investigation there was no sighting in the radars. I was told it was in possible for it to be a spaceship, other wise they would have detected it, and it could be a air-balloon add. No matter how much I tried to describe it to her, she was not interested or did not believe it to investigate it further. for a huge sighting that I reported at the time there was hardly any UFO sightings these day is nothing like the one I have witnessed.

To this day I have not heard or seen it in any reports anywhere, and always wondered why, for all the small types of sightings are reported documented and announced, and I am always trying to research of the other witnesses whom were there, or seen it that day, or anyone else that would have had the similar experience.

Those days there was no mobile phones to take photos for proof etc. For this is very true and described the best of my memory today, and it was nothing like from our planet that's for sure.
