Location: Melbourne (VIC, Australia),
Shape: Disk
Duration: 3 mins
Characteristics: The object landed
3 big white disks, shot into the sky and out of sight within 4-5 second when I approached.

Was walking home from the shopping center past an empty field at about 6:30pm when three white disks each about 30 meters in diamater which is pretty big were floating next to each other about 3 feet obove the ground absolutely still. I saw and thought they were some sort of water tank device. I approached and after I took the first couple of steps all three of them shot up into the air about 500 meters as fast as a sling shot and then in a neck snapping move for a normal man, they jolted off at a 90 degree angle and were out of sight within a few seconds. I study physics at uni and I know that they must have broken the sound barrier or gotten close within 4 seconds of take off. The way they sped up from take off at about 200mph and continued to speed up as they made a 90 degree turn from vertical to horizontal at an even higher speed, then sped up so fast that they were out of sight within a few seconds on a sky blue clear day was,...what can I say. I have not slept since then. It was completely silent. Have never told anybody except my girlfriend and never will.
