i did describe it in a thread a week or so ago, but i've forgotten which thread it was now.
Basically it was around 10pm, i was just coming home from a little drive. I was going around a bend on my street when through some trees i saw a
couple of lights which i figured were aircraft. We have passenger planes passing overhead regularly and the occasional rescue helicopter.
Anyway, about 30 sedconds later i had pulled up in my driveway and was grabbing some things out of the car. I figured the "plane" should be in view
so i turned around to have a look. Just at that time it came into view from behind the trees. It was 3 lights, white in colour and in the shape of an
equilateral triangle. They did not blink or flash, nor change colour. It was flying quite low, i'm not an expert so i any altitude i give would be a
guess but it seemed to lower than the rescue helicopters normally fly. And it was a lot bigger than i would expect a chopper to be.
It was flying with one light at the trailing end, and the side with 2 lights was at the front of it. This is what made me think helicopter as an
explanation, as if the chopper had those little wings that attack and other choppers have maybe each light was at the end of one of those wings and
the rear light at the back. It made no noise however, except for maybe a slight hum (which i am not sure about, as a couple of cars passed).
It moved slowly as well, it was in view for maybe 30 seconds and then flew over the house and i couldnt see it behind the roofline (another indicator
it was flying quite low).
I'm positive it wasnt a plane. As for being a helicopter, i think the biggest the Aussie military have are Blackhawks and they arent that big (this
was much larger than your normal helicopter).
I couldnt distinguish any features, in fact if it wasnt for the lights i would never have noticed it at all. I went inside to get the binoculars but
by then i could no longer see it.
