Source: UFO Research NSW Sighting Report - Reported 11.03.02
In February 1995 around 2.00 am, the warship HMAS Newcastle was at sea 25 nautical miles east off Sydney, participating in anti ship war games with other naval units. The closest other unit was some 5 nm as surface consort. I was on the bridge at the time of initial observation. I saw bright lights pass directly in front of the ship at an excessive speed. The light projected reminded me of headlights from a passing car.

The lights stopped to the starboard beam of the ship. It is hard to estimate a distance however it would have been no more than 100 m ahead. The object shone a bright light at the front of the ship. This lasted for approximately 2 seconds. The object then moved at an excessive speed prior to adopting a ballistic profile (went straight up). I have never seen such speed before. The sighting lasted thirteen seconds.

The operations room was contacted and it was verified from operators that there were no helicopters in the air at the time. The next scheduled movement from Nowra was an SH-60 Seahawk helicopter that was to be used in the exercise. This was due on task at 0400.

At the time all Radars were not transmitting as per exercise requirements. Weather at the time was clear with unobstructive views in all directions. I cannot recall if there was moonlight that evening or not. Anthony Clarke UFORNSW

06.02.95 PAYNESVILLE, VIC  2130hrs (NL)
Witness and another lady left Paynesville at 9.30 pm and drove to Bairnsdale fifteen kms away. There they stopped for petrol, and then drove towards Sale which is a further 68 kms away. As they crossed the railway line which marks the western limit of Bairnsdale, the two women noticed a bright light to the Northwest, at an estimated distance of one km away. The stars in the background just weren't relevant, the lady said. The next thing they were conscious of was that they were driving past a roadhouse 35 kms from Bairnsdale, but neither could remember driving there. Oncoming traffic worries the woman but she couldn't recall meeting any.

Over to the N.W was the bright white light which they had seen at Bairnsdale, and on seeing this the driver pulled the car over and stopped. Her dog was whining and very upset, visibly shaking. Puzzled over why she and her companion couldn't recall driving the previous 35 kms, she began driving again, this time following a truck, looking out, she could see the white light still, but after driving a short distance she noticed that it had gone. Her dog was still upset when she reached Sale, but when she left later to return home it showed no sign of unease. The trip was completed without further event, except that Sale had been reached 15 minutes or thereabouts faster than she usually makes the trip, and overall had used less petrol.

I have known the lady for 10 years or more, and there is no way she would concoct a story such as this. Further notes are that on reaching Sale, it was noticed that little fuel had been used. When the driver started back on the road again at the roadhouse, she noticed that the headlights were off, but doesn't recall switching them off when she stopped.

If it had been just a simple report of a light in the sky, the lady wouldn't have minded her name being used, but she feels that this is much more than that and feels she would be ridiculed to some extent if her name was given.

The Planet Venus would have been where the light was observed, but would have set at that time.

Three orange lights were seen over the Sydney suburb of Leichardt for half an hour between approximately 2 and 3am. Radio National suggested at the time that people go and view it. Apparently photos etc were taken as suggested to do by the radio by others unknown.

JULY 1995 MELBOURNE (COBURG), VIC  1900hrs  (CE1)
A report was received from June W. last month reporting a sighting on the above date. A rectangular shaped object with three rows of white lights. The object was soundless and was travelling westwards. It was very low, just above roof tops of houses. When it passed over witnesses saw the back of it which was just black with a red light on right hand side. VUFORS

While driving with his wife, on a crisp, clear morning, a 52 year old man noticed two lights in the sky, to the north-west.. He stopped the car and turned off the lights to take a closer look. The two lights which had initially been rising from the ground were now stationary. The Sun was reflecting off a metallic greyish coloured shape, causing the lights. After about a minute or so, the object to his right disappeared. There was no noise, nor vapour trail. About a minute later, the other object disappeared. Duration: 5 minutes. UFORSA

Witness at Marsden was outside watching the Sunset.  He observed two UFOs the size of a light plane but resembling a ball of fire in the distance and orange in colour.  The UFOs were travelling as fast as a light plane.  He was fortunate enough to capture the UFOs on video.  UFOICQ

05.12.95 PROSPECT, SA 1620hrs (DD)
A 35 year old woman was standing in the front of her driveway when she saw what at first seemed to be a meteor. It was in fact 2 objects which seemed to be racing each other. When they met at a point they just vanished. They were blue with a tinge of either green or yellow. Duration: 3 seconds. UFORSA
