|six orange lights hovered for a few minutes
I was having my dinner at work when a work mate called me on the radio and told me to look in a southerly direction and about a 30 deg elevation and try and make out what the objects where in the sky. I'm an aviation enthusiast and i know an aircraft if i see one whether close or far, let me tell you these where NO aircraft they formed two patterns of a triangular shape, they were grouped in threes.
The light emmited was orange and seemed stationary for a short while then they started to move ever so slowly to the south. we could not make out the shape of the objects due to the intensity of the lights. Iknow that the object hat to have been lower than 3000 ft. because there was a cloud cover at aprox 3000 ft.this information was provided to me by the B.O.M.on the net.
The objects vanished as if some one was dimming the lights, no doubt they were moving away because the lights were seen entering the clouds.
The exact location of thsighting is: S 35deg 16min 20.5 sec E 149deg 07min 51.6sec
