(Sourced: Journal of Alternative Realities - Volume 10, Issue 1, 2002)
Friday, 16 March 2001, 2.30-2.45am. Mt Magnet, WA. A truck driver, Bottica, was travelling north towards Mt Magnet. He was surprised to see in his rear-view mirror a bright light following behind, to the right of his truck. He realised this couldn’t be another vehicle because of its position and this was confirmed when he saw what looked like an egg or acorn shape sitting on a saucer-like base. The whole object was flashing blue, red and green lights. The witness stopped his truck a few times to try and make sense of what he was seeing. But the object always stayed about five hundred metres behind, although moving from side to side. At one point he waved to a passing truck driver and pointed to the hovering object in the sky. The light or lights followed Bottica for another fifty kilometres through Mt Magnet and a further twenty kilometres past Paynes Find where it was not seen any more.

Around 4am on 19th March, Ken was traveling 90km east of Mudgee when he saw a bright green globular light in the southern sky heading towards the eastern horizon. According to the witness, at first the object seemed to have a slow trajectory. However it’s speed increased as it covered the path along the meridian. The complete event was observed for a few seconds before disappearing into the horizon. Ken said that he almost drove his car off the road during his observation. A second car behind him pulled over, obviously noticing the anomaly.
Ken was told by Mr. ? that it may have been a copper based meteorite. That is true for a meteorite of such a composition, however there was no fire trail or defragmentation produced by the object during its course! Attila Kaldy UFOSWS

"I have called the Australian UFO observatory and they have not received my call, and also have called the Sydney observatory. I spoke to a "Scully", how had no intention of even believing me.
At first we saw some strange dim flashlight beam on the eucalyptus tree next to our balcony. I live on the third floor, and although there is a roof balcony above us, apparently there is no access. I investigated to hear no movement or see any further signs of flashlight activity. I then looked up. A craft of unknown origin was sighted directly above my apartment (some 2km above) and at first appeared to be an unusual stratospheric formation. The night sky was 100% clear, apart from a 5% thin light mist, which was completely transparent. The reason I noticed the unusual formation was the density and cigar like shape appearing like smooth cloud amongst transparent mist. I could not understand the formation of this cloud due to the surrounding atmospheric conditions, and thus had a closer inspection to understand the unusual appearance. Calling Amanda over who’s eyes were adjusted, (who she and I had been on the balcony for 5 minutes) pointing her to the object. She noted immediately that it looked strange, felt strange and asked... "what is that"? The object moved about 5 degrees south, and appeared to come closer. No thin mist was present at this time and we had now been watching the craft for 3 minutes. It was very dark being 2:30am, but the cigar like craft had a steely matte gun metal colouring, with a light refraction of gradient showing it’s smooth shape and colour. Two rectangular shapes featured at one end of the UFO. Both bore eight red lights, arranged in two columns of four, positioned vertically, and parallel to each other. I and Amanda through this time kept asking each other "what is this object", and "do you believe what we are seeing"! It was quite amazing...we observed it for over five minutes. We even looked at it through binoculars!
As I reached inside my balcony door to get my mobile phone it disappeared, and vanished.
I just hope someone has had the same experience!" Daniel & Amanda. Doug Moffett UFORNSW
I’ve had a long discussion with the reportee, Daniel. The report he submitted was quite detailed however I have been able to obtain some additional information about his experience:
* The reportee and his girlfriend first noticed three dim lights above a large tree outside their unit. The alleged cigar-shape anomaly was not luminous, so the light source is still unknown (weather or not it came from the anomaly, or multiple sources or a completely independent source).
* The presence of the anomaly created an unusual feeling between the couple: ominous, remote, vulnerable feelings. Also the atmosphere around them was as if everything was harsh, cold metallic.
* It took the anomaly around 1 minute to move from directly above them to approximately 15 degrees south above the horizon.
If the report is authentic, and I have no reason to believe otherwise, is it possible that they may have been subject to a CE4? I have left my details with the reportee in case he remembers anything else. I also mentioned hypnotherapy and at the same time cautioned him about the effects it could have. I also asked about any time loss, any strange odors, any physical abnormalities. None were evident! Attila Kaldy UFOSWS

"The date is wrong, but it was the same day that Mir came to earth. Husband and I were outside gardening, thought we’d keep an eye out in case we could see something of Mir as it came down (we saw it go over the previous night). We heard it was to happen around 5.30pm EDST. Spot on 5.30pm I was looking up and saw something I called my husband over and he tried the binoculars but it was moving too fast. It came from the west, heading east, almost directly overhead. It was a small, bright object, moving very fast. It was metallic as it flashed in the sunlight. The sun was still up a bit as I had to shield it with my hand to see. It was going faster than a plane/jet and was gone in about 15 seconds, and I felt was up very high. I continued searching for it towards the east, and thought I saw a bright spot stationary, but that could have been my eyes dazzled from the sun. We felt elated thinking we’d seen Mir, but after watching the news that night realised it wasn’t coz Mir came down around 5pm EDST and was nowhere near where we live (Hunter Valley, NSW). My only thought is it may have been a low level satellite, but part of me thinks no coz it was moving too fast (I’ve seen satellites go over at night, and you can usually watch them for at least half a minute or more) and there was still a lot of daylight around."
Unusual: Just metallic no discernible shape and fast
Location: Singleton NSW in the Hunter Valley - approx.... 10km due north of the township. The object moved directly overhead, high, west-east
Weather conditions: Clear skies, sun beginning to set but still approx.... 35 degrees up into the sky. Slight haze.
Physical stuff: West-east movement, very fast gone in 15 seconds, very high (impression only) no contrail, too fast to be a plane/RAAF jet (see a lot of them go over), small in size (coz of distance)
Duration: 15 seconds. Doug Moffett UFORNSW

A woman saw a glowing red UFO land in a paddock close to Beenleigh and Redland Bay Road near Logan, the night of March 28, 2001. According to the Logan newspaper, "Dogs barked, birds squawked and horses bolted when a mysterious bright object streaked across Logan’s night sky, shining red light over a rural property at 11:30 p.m." "Seeing the silent red UFO has frightened and mystified property owner Tashma Hosking who said she heard it hit the ground minutes later after it disappeared over a hill." "But her search of the area the next day found nothing." Diane Harrison AUFORN.
