You were right, I was trying to spell phonetically, I was thinking of deuterium heavy water use.
"Also very interesting that you got in touch with CDSCC Canberra via internal channels. Again, if you can recall exactly what you reported to them,
it would be most valuable for the record."
I can't tell you about CDSCC. I reported to who are the best at what they do.
Don't know about the 30/21 Dec 1995, it was for social footy bbq. It probably as it was warm (25 deg. +), just family and friends (all civilians)
about 30 people. Won't tell you about the civies, they have there own lives to lead.
Through personal observation I performed my duty reporting the distance (within 5 km's), height (under 1km), angle of approach (30-35 degrees
inclination), direction (N/NE to NE/E) shape (globe / orb), size (20-15m diameter) colour (yellow/orange), flight manuevers (usual bouncing, skipping,
floating), speed (2-3 knots to Mach 1+ /repetitively), duration (half hour at least). No sound, no helo, no balloon etc as it was dark/dusk, no
navigation lights or markings. happens so often in the area the civvie population take it for granted.
Visual external power source looked like an external RHO plasma field.
"Desert Storm" period timeframe I think. Hence the lockdown & escorts??
I've seen them in a similar manner floating/skipping down Lane Cove River from N/W from Hunters Hill, same deal as before, emerald green in colour.
Was fishing from a wharf in Drummoyne, duration was at least half hour. but no slow/high speed differential. I didn't report this one. I should have
as it "floated" underneath Gladesville Bridge. Helos or balloons "never" go under bridges.
It's nice to see them again. They are like "old friends".
Recently within the last 12 months in western Sydney suburbs, daytime, I saw the thermal contrail only, very high speed 5-10km height, would have
overflown RAAF Richmond, Perfect 45 degree angle of turn (very very sharp). Helos don't fligh that high or fast. jets etc turn in curves. informed
Army intel baby sitter at work. It was not wind shear.
I see them every 2-3 years on average.
