Hi guys, just going post a couple of pics i took not long ago of something in the evening sky.
I'm not sure what they were nor am I going to insert my opinion as to what I think they were.
The pics are as is, apart from copying them off my cam onto my pc and posted here.
I'm sure you can obtain the cam specs but if you want them let me know.
Below are some question Gazrok advises to use when reporting a UFO to other reporting sites.
SO to get some of the basics out of the way;
Date of sighting? 25th April 2006
Time of sighting 6.38pm AEST
How long did the sighting last? 3 mins approx
City, state of sighting: Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
How many other witnesses? 1
Just lights, or shape discernable? Both
Color of lights and/or object/s? Orange to White
Number of lights and/or objects? 2 main objects plus few smaller.
Apparent altitude? 10,000 Feet +???
Direction of travel? West
Apparent brightness? See pic for relevance.
Path of travel (straight, curved, etc.)? Down and West South West
Any pictures or video? Yes
Any sound? No
Any aircraft around? Police Helicopter in Eastern sky nearby.
(Have pics of that for ref.)
The pics were taken from a balcony approx 4m high.
Facing West during a sunset, the objects appeared over Heidelberg/Ivanhoe in Melbourne.
The objects height I've guess-timated to 10,000 feet however I say that with little faith.
I have seen aircraft much higher ( x 2-3 times) in the sky than these objects.
I think 10,000 is a good point to start.
This height could also throw out my assumption as to where/suburbs these objects were appearing over, so
perhaps 'that direction' may have to suffice.
Also the lay of the surrounding land could throw the height estimate out.
I took a few pix most without zoom so I could get some ground feature for reference.
Due to the valley like panorama, and height of the property, it was hard obtaining a shot with
the undulation of the land / suburbs and the objects in the sky as to better gauge its height.
Should these pics get some attention or more pics are required of the landscape etc, I will provide them.
They objects seem to be moving down in altitude and away towards west sth west direction but this movement
happened within a hands width before they faded away.
It was a beautiful sunset with some cloud cover, so these could be dismissed as cloud reflection etc, however
the pics definetly show the objects in the foreground. I'll leave it for you to decide.
I could go on and on with details, however I want to see if these a worthy of further discussion.
I could provide some Google Earth pics for ref.. again, let me know.
The pictures captured more than what I could see with my eyes and glasses on. I wasn't aware of the smaller
objects till I looked at the pics.
Also I mentioned there was the VIC Police Helo flying around. It was in the oppsite sky circling surronding
areas, but at no time was in the west or obscurring any vision of the objects. I took pics of it for ref
too. Also it was around much long after the objects dissappeared.
The plus side, my partner was watching this unfold, so it was good seeing someone elses curiosity for a
change. Nice to have my cam handy for once too !!!
So if anyone has any opinion as to what this is, please, do tell.
(I hope this obides by the new image linking policy - Mods please advise me if not suitable)
3 links to the same pic:
Personally I am not sure, I know it wasn't any commercial airliner, swamp gas or Venus.
edit: Great!!! the pic links don't appear to work, these are the links image shack provided when I uploaded the pic, I'm not sure how to get them
working... any ideas?
