A North Kolan property owner and his son were travelling home when in the distance (approx. 25 kms) away they observed a large  whitish/silver shaped saucer, described as a 'cup and saucer upside down'.  It was moving from west to east very slowly.  The Sun was setting near the horizon and there was a cloud line just above the Sun.  The Sun's rays were behind the UFO.  The witness does not recall how the UFO disappeared.

08.06.96 WONNANGATTA STATION, VIC 1805hrs (NL)
On the evening of Saturday 8th of June a four wheel drive club of fifty adults and twenty to thirty children made an overnight stop at the valley known as the Wonnangatta station, which is now national park and is an extremely remote place surrounded by mountains. It lies halfway between Licola North of Heyfield, and Dargo forty miles or more north west of Bairnsdale. Nobody lives in that area permanently.

At 6.05 pm it was dark and the Marquee was up and barbecues were cooking the evening meal.

Suddenly all conversation stopped as an orange light appeared over the Western mountain rim It moved on an Easterly course and after arriving at an elevation of sixty degrees, it stopped.

Shortly after, two more lights appeared on the Western rim, where they paused. Then the group moved on a straight course , stopping now and then. There was no synchronicity between the two lights and the leading light. but altogether six stops would have been made. The lights were steady and unvarying in intensity, and three times as bright as any star visible in the background. When the leading light arrived near the Eastern rim, it paused and one of the two trailing lights, which had been side by side all the way across, moved forward to take up a position alongside the leading light. When this was done the three moved to the East and were soon out of sight.

Mr R was adamant that these weren’t balloons, They were steady and made straight but slow progress across the sky. Because of the mountains all around visibility was restricted to about 120 degrees. If these were balloons released somewhere else, they would have to be released many miles away in daylight. To be released locally, they would have to be taken in by four wheel drive and without any guarantee of an audience to see them.

The duration of the sighting was about fifteen minutes. Dan Haylock VUFORS

22.06.96 NARRE WARREN, VIC 2340hrs (NL)
Two orange lights were watched by 8 people as they came from the SSW straight towards the observers. They were travelling faster than normal aircraft. They slowed down after about 3-4 minutes to a very slow speed, holding an equal distance apart. About 2 minutes into the observation they began to roll in formation in a clockwise direction. When at about 45 degrees, they began to move apart again. One appeared to move back while moving up at approximately 10 degrees to the SSE. The other appeared top move back to the SW maintaining level flight. The first was lost in cloud cover, the other moved away until too dim to see. They were completely silent, and flying into the wind. Duration: 10-15 minutes. Melbourne Nexus Association
