Ok im still buzzing but i will try and right this down as best i can.
A workmate and I were driving home tonight from work when close to our town we noticed some bright lights up in the sky ahead of us.We talked about
what they could be as we approached and tried to distinguish it as a plane or helicopter but it seemed stationary and to have to many lights.We kept
approaching it for maybe 5 minutes and pulled over to the side of the road when we were close for a better look.Only when we stopped did it seem to
start moving very slowly and silent(although there is a large mill close by were we stopped which may have drowned out real faint noise).It wasnt very
high up a lot lower than id expect a plane to fly and moved very slow.Im guessing it was about 200 metres from us and couldnt guess a height but there
is a mountain close buy which is 820 metres highMount Edgecumbe
and it was alot lower
than that.We watched it cruise slowly eastward while sctractching our heads.
As soon as i got home i told my partner who thought i was pulling her leg and i rung the local airport which is about 1/2 hour away and is also to the
East.The guy there told me nothing should of been around our direction and they had nothing preparing to land he told me he would look in to it and
said goodbye.Well bugger me if he didnt ring back about 15min later and said they had checked that no planes were about or helicopters and nothing
should be either.He described helicopter lights and plane lights to me and noises and i told him none of what he described seem to match.He said they
are investigating it and asked me at least twice "do you think its dangerous?" which seemed a little bizzare to me.
I have rung my workmate twice so far to keep him updated and he described what he saw as white lights in a four point star shape with red when we got
closer.I cant describe the shape as it just seemed a bunch of lights to me haha.
This probably doesnt make much sense i havnt had my dinner yet and im still trying to figure out in my head so ask questions and i will try to answer
as best i can.
