From your description you were roughly in the Narre Warren/Berwick area, if you were looking North to the Dandenongs?

Many years ago I was lucky enough to witness some very spectacular aerial "lights" with my girlfriend. It was a beautiful summer’s day, about 18:30 (daylight savings time) and we were on our way to the cinema to see a film.
That night I was fortunate enough for my girlfriend to be driving. In Australia we drive on the opposite side of the road to the USA and our cars are right hand drive. In other words, I was sitting in the passenger seat on the left hand side of the car, on the left hand side of the road.
During the journey, I turned to my girlfriend in conversation only to see an orange glowing egg shaped object suspended in a clear, blue sky through her driver door window. It appeared to be quite close and it's altitude was also very low, perhaps 500 meters at most.
I told my girlfriend to look out her window to have a look at this "thing". She verified exactly what I was seeing. The tree's on the right side of the road started to become denser and the "object" started to gradually disappear behind them to the point that we couldn't articulate the object itself but still see the glow through tiny gaps.
About 20 or so seconds later we came to another clearing in the tree's and the object was still there but now accompanied by a second identical light, a little higher and to the left of the original object. By this time I was starting to feel a bit excited. I've seen all manner of craft in the skies before - blimps, planes, helicopters, balloons, parachutes, sky divers, flares - you name it - and these two objects didn't come remotely close.
I urged my girlfriend to pull over so we could watch these "things" but there was a car following closely behind us and my girlfriend was a nervous driver so she didn't want to pull up to the side directly. Instead she offered to turn into a road that we knew was on the right hand side of the road a further km along where we would get an unobstructed view.
It felt like forever but it was less than a minute and we were out of the car looking at these two glowing eggs in front of us at roughly 45 degrees upward from where we were standing. We could now see that the objects weren't exactly orange but oscillating into slightly different tones continuously.
Then the original object (lower right) increased in brightness accompanied by a strobing effect that lasted for a few seconds. During the strobing a smaller, silver ellipse shaped object "popped out" from the bottom and in an "S" shaped movement, (Up - Down - Up) moved to the left. When it stopped, its altitude was the same as the first object which had "spawned" it and was also now in the perfect position (in correlation to the other two objects) to create and equalateral triangle.
The silver light then changed color to orange and grew in size to match the other two. So we were now seeing three identical orange egg shaped objects in an equalateral triangle. This formation lasted for approximately 30 - 45 seconds and then they departed in the exact order they appeared in, flying horizontally & directly away from us in a northerly direction towards Mt Dandenong. We tracked them visually until they were dots and eventually, gone entirely.
I slowly spun my head around looking in the sky for anything else but the sky was empty except for one tiny Cessna that was a few minutes away, flying toward us and the general vacinity of where we had witnessed these objects. I doubt there would have been any way that the pilot could have missed them. However my enquiries later that night to Moorabbin, Essendon and Tullamarine Airports, including the Bureau of Meteorology bore no fruit.
There were other reported sightings of the same 3 objects which appeared in the local paper the next week concerning that very evening from different ground perspectives but essentially the exact same thing. Nothing ever came of it though...
Anyway, that's probably why I'm a member of ATS today.
Happy to answer any Q's if you have them.

You say it was an egg shaped object suspended in the sky that seemed close and at low altitude, Did it almost seem like a dull sun about to set?

Very interesting indeed thanks for posting!
I remember that Glowing 'Egg' shaped UFOs were very heavily reported back in the early 80's.

I personally saw a silver 'hat' shaped 'saucer' UFO (circa 1982). Even though the image in my mind is still vivid, I was so young the details are hard for me to substantiate. Same locale, a friend saw a huge 'burning log' UFO in the sky, witnessed concurrently with her mother, accompanied by a sense of dread.
