On Saturday evening December 30 1995, all phones rang hot at Gosford Police Station as motorists called on their mobile phones to report a large craft hovering above Mooney-Mooney Bridge.
Later, dozens of calls flooded in from distressed locals at home.
Station Sergeant Bob Wenning states, “People were woken by an intense humming noise. They were genuinely frightened when they saw a huge cylindrical object hovering over the water. It had a polished, ball-like bottom, and as it hovered over the lake, its lights shone down into the water, apparently turning it in to steam”. Callers also reported a brilliant light which “turned night into day”, shining through their bedroom windows.
Patrol cars were sent out to investigate, but whenever police officers came to within 50 meters of it, or car headlights got close, the craft would turn off its own lights and shoot up skywards, out of sight. One police officer reported that it flew away “as if you had a torch beam and whipped it around.”
Seasonal parties, previously well behaved, suddenly erupted into antisocial behaviour. Residents reported their animals cowered and hid, and many dogs howled for no apparent reason. Car patrols were dispatched from one spot to another as the object moved back and forth over the area.All callers gave the same account of a saucer-shaped craft, 20 to 30 meters across, surrounded by bright white light, and with intense shafts of light that penetrated the foaming water below, or when away from the water, once the shafts of white light were off, underneath was a red glow or flashing red-orange lights.
The event largely died out around dawn at 5am, after Police units had been dispatched on over 35 calls,one officer relating that the evening reminded him of a night of “Moon Madness”, that phenomenon known to police whereby civil unrest increases during the full moon.
"Callers were genuinely frightened."

Time Seen: Friday 16th June between 5.45pm and 6.00pm
Location: Empire Bay (Gosford area)
Reportee: Alison F
Report given to nearest rep: Doug Moffett
Tel: 02 43
Alison noticed an illuminated object over the water, hovering low on the horizon. The object had 8 square lights right around, it was football shaped with a white/gold glow and the well defined square lights were brighter than the rest of the object. The proximity estimated was quite close, approx 200-300 mtrs and elevation about a tree and a half above the water. The object was not as big as the Goodyear blimp which was not flying in that area and in fact not even in the air at that time on that day. The illumination made no noise, had no navigation lights, appeared as a “solid” light and no evidence of searchlight beams could be found. The illumination was larger than thumb and forefinger at full stretch at arms length, very large or very close, the witness felt the latter was the case. It was later briefly seen as the witness dropped her parents off to Umina as an illumination in the clouds, there was no beam under the cloud and the moon was visible to the R/H/S of the object although the night was somewhat cloudy.
The duration of the main sighting was approx 10-15 mins and was reported to the witness by a local real estate agent as they were in casual conversation in a shop the next morning, who witnessed the same object at the same time.

Umina Central Coast, N.S.W - 3rd April 1997
At 10.22pm a respondent reports sighting up 12 illuminated triangular or
stealth type aircraft travelling overhead towards the Palm Beach area from
Umina, that minutes later seemed to disappear into the sea. Whilst
these were going overhead the respondent felt an unusual electrical
field, and ten minutes afterwards a large RAAF type of aircraft with
a dish on top followed the same course and direction, with helicopters
equipped with large spotlights and a light aircraft following later.
Subject: UFO Sighting
Location: Woy Woy,Gosford,New South Wales, Australia
Date: July 11, 2003
Time: 10:30 PM
Object's Shape: Oval
Number of Objects: 1
Object had lights - Object had an Aura or Haze around it - Object hovered - Object became transparent
The Oval Light - We were going to Bay View Restaurant in Woy Woy, The Central Coast New South Wales, where outside the restaurant, I was distracted by something in the corner of my eye.
So I looked up and I saw a reasonably large oval light in the sky (much bigger than any light an aeroplane could possibly have). The light then flashed four times in one position, then immediately papered in another part of the sky, a long distance from where it originally flashed.
In its new position it flashed another four times, it then was immediately in another new position in the sky. The oval light continued doing this until it was out of sight.
4th February 1997 NSW Gosford
Respondents report sighting a "huge blue white light" east of
the Moonie Bridge 7 minutes south of Gosford the illumination or
object was in a holding position low to the ground and appeared
to be about 2-300 feet across in width.
