Location: Sydney (Australia),
Shape: Triangle
Duration:20seconds
Triangular formation of lights moving reasonably low to the ground.

Seen at approximately 8.18-8-20pm Sydney local time.

I observed the object approaching my position (Oakhurst) from the east it then turned in the approximate direction of north, it emitted a low pitched hum, it was very quiet, it appeared to be at my best guess no more than 1000meters above the surface as the delay in sound was closely in sync with its movement as it came and turned. The lights were white in color, they werent very bright at all, something that would easily be missed by someone not looking directly at the sky as I was, I was outside smoking and tend to stargaze which I believe is the only way anyone could have seen it. This information is copied straight from an image I made directly after the sighting, I have uploaded the image I made http://imbatech.com/sighting.jpg - I also recall seeing a commercial airliner high overhead coming from the east also, this helped me to know it was close to the ground.
