24 May 1993 Belmont, Newcastle, NSW 1730-1800hrs
A commercial pilot just got out of his car when he noticed three large lights, triangular pattern, in the sky to the south. They appeared to rotate about a vertical axis and moved from side to side "as though looking for something". The sky was generally clear but some cumulus clouds above the lights. They were bright and like the sodium street lights in colour. After a while they appeared to descend or move away in the distance, they moved over the top of a shed and out of sight. Total time of sighting 15 minutes. REF: UFOR(NSW) NA930027

Late May 1993 Cromer, NSW 0400hrs
Mrs C woke up at 4am and looked out of bedroom window. The night sky was cloudy but an object was sighted in a north-easterly direction "hovering" in one position. It was the brightest object in the sky and about star size. Mrs C returned to bed and sleep after about 30minutes. UFOR(NSW) Note:Venus was rising during this period in the east. REF:UFOR(NSW) NA930036

24-June-1993 Eastwood, NSW 19:00-1910hrs
Mr and Mrs V saw a bright orange light shaped like a ball drifting towards the channel 7 tower from a north-west direction.

The Channel 7 Newsroom on Friday 25th had stated other people had contacted them with the same information. REF:UFOR(NSW) NA930039

10-July-1993 Eastwood, NSW 19:25-2010hrs
Mr and Mrs V (ref:NA930039) over a 45 minute period noticed triangular light pattern of red/green/white with occassional pulsating flashes at a south-south-west position. It was far too high to be an aircraft and they felt it more like a satellite in character. It drifted south until hidden by the treeline. REF:UFOR(NSW) NA930040

1-June-1993 Liverpool, NSW 00:28--0031hrs
Mr D was putting out the garbage when he called his wife to look at four round orange lights move over their house. They or it came from the south and travelled north. The front one had, what appeared to be, sparks emitting from its base and a Saturn-like ring about it's circumference. One of the objects disappeared for a couple of seconds then reappeared, the formation then moved northwards out of sight. REF:UFOR(NSW) NA930043

12-June-1993 Naremburn, NSW 19:40-2005hrs
Ms G looked out of her window while waiting for a pizza delivery when she noticed odd lights in the sky. They were a deep golden-orange in colour and eventually totalled five. They were about planet size (noticeably round, not pinpoints like stars) and moved very slowly. There were originally three objects close together that moved to the south-west out of sight, two others were seen to proceed and disappear like the original three. REF:UFOR(NSW) NA930045

10-July-1993 Merewether, Newcastle, NSW 2030-2110hrs (approx)
Mr G noticed a configuration of three very large bright orange lights hovering stationary in the sky. About two to three minutes later they were joined by two more identical objects that appeared to travel from the east (coast). Mr G's first thought was that they were hot air balloons but this theory was discarded as they moved far too quickly and with too much ease. After watching for about ten minutes Mr G retired for the evening. REF:UFOR(NSW) NA930047

10-July-1993 Merewether, Newcastle, NSW 2105-21:20hrs

5-December-1993 Burrill Lake, Ulladulla, NSW 2230-2235hrs
