Brett Vollus, who lives in a unit overlooking Collaroy, saw purple and blue lights above the ocean at 5am.
"I thought 'that's a bright star'," he said.
He zoomed in with his iPhone and saw what looked like two objects travelling around each other.
``I thought it was a helicopter but it wasn't making a sound,'' he said. ``It looked like something out of this world.
``They were moving in and out of each other and the lights were really bright.'' Mr Vollus said he watched the spectacle for about 40mins before they ``just disappeared''. ``I was quite freaked out after,'' he said.
The President of UFO Research (NSW), Mariana Flynn said they had no UFO sighting reports called in today.
