UFO Sighting on Australian TV Sunrise Program, Broadcast on 18 October 2015

I (Alex) have uploaded the video to YouTube at: https://youtu.be/yYHG-fC353Q

On 18 October 2015 I was watching Australian breakfast TV where Mike Dow was promoting his book, The Brain Fox Fix, about brain proofing our brains.  Fascinating as it was, something caught my eye, a bright speck of light like an eliminated orb, or could it be a plane reflecting the sun?  I initially thought nothing of it as it could have been anything, then the UFO re-appeared two more times.  The way it moved is inconsistent with conventional aircraft.  I do not claim to know what this is but by definition it is a UFO.

The orb appears to the left of Mike (presenter) in between the group of three palms at: 0:49, 4:15 and 6:16 minutes.  The presenters were oblivious to the phenomenon but UFOs do make the subject of the show now and again.  I’m sure the Sunrise team will be very interested in what has been captured.

I upload the video for scrutiny and will make it available for further investigation by UFO groups.

Interested to know what you think?  I have also captured a few close ups but the quality isn’t very good.

Sighting of UFO Near the East MacDonnell Ranges, Northern Territory, Australia, During July 2015

In July this year (2015) over two weeks, a friend of mine and her fellow university students from Sydney were doing geological field excursions in and around the N’Dhala Gorge, East MacDonnell Ranges in the Northern Territory of Australia.

They were staying at a homestead called Ross River, which was situated about 65 km east of Alice Springs.  In their first week over three nights, the 13, 14 and 15 July 2015 they came across a find that was totally out of the ordinary.

While returning back to their cabins after dinner, my friend and seven other students witnessed rays of coloured lights (red, blue and yellow) rising up behind the ranges to their southwest.  This display lasted for at least thirty minutes.  She said over this period the lights would fade and become bright again, and their colours would mix producing more complex colours.  Unfortunately these lights where over 2 km away, too far to get a suitable photo with their mobile phones.  She said at the time they were all totally bewildered by these lights.  After the second and third night of witnessing these lights they decided that the next day they would actually go to the area where these lights were appearing from.  When they got there they could not find any evidence at all that would cause the appearance of these lights!

The best was yet to come, on the night of the 21 July 2015 while again returning to their cabins from dinner, my friend and four other students witnessed a much closer sighting of a bright white orb (see image below).  It was about 500 meters’ to the north at angle of 45 degrees and was travelling slowly  from west to east, no sound was heard.  The orb was roughly the size of your thumb nail with your arm out stretched.  She was very lucky to get a photo because the sighting only lasted about five seconds, this photo was taken at 8.06 pm.  

If you look at the image you will notice what looks to be like flaring shooting out from the top and bottom of the object and also coming out of the objects left hand side.  These are not camera flares, this is what it looked like with the naked eye, according to my friend.  The clincher is, the top and bottom flares were actually ‘horizontal’ before she took the photograph!  So it actually rotated in a split second into this position just before it disappeared.  Some of you might say it looks like a full Moon but if you check the records it was just over a half moon on the night of the 21 July 2015.  She also said that if you look closely, the orb actually looks slightly oval shaped!

Sighting of UFO Following Car on Menangle Road, Campbelltown, NSW, Australia, During June 2015 

I was driving along Menangle Road from Campbelltown to Picton, it was winter and it was dark at around 7:00 pm.  I drove over a hill and noticed a bright light coming up behind the car.  I noticed in my rear vision mirror the light and thought to myself, ‘shit this car is coming up really fast!’  I was driving at a speed of 100 km/hr and within an extremely short time the light was at the back of my car. 

The light was a ball and it was enormous, I was terrified and I drove faster.  This ball of light followed me for about one minute before disappearing into thin air.  I was shaken and scared as I could not work out how something so large could travel the distance it did in such a short time.  Since then I have driven that road every day and it crosses my mind a lot as to what on earth it was.  I have no logical explanation.  The size of the ball, its speed and sudden disappearance, bothers me a lot.  I believe I encountered a form of UFO.

Sighting of Boomerang Shaped UFO, Blacktown Area, NSW, Australia, on the 28 June 2015 at Approximately 10 pm.

I was facing south east and noticed, from the corner of my eye, movement from the south west that was heading north east.

I first noticed what looked like little white lights and thought it must be a flock of cockatoos, as it moved closer I realised that they were white lights.  There were stars in the sky and if the object was not moving I would have thought that it was stars. 

The object appeared large and much closer than a commercial jet.  The object was located at about 40 to 45 degrees elevation from the ground.  It appeared to glide at a constant speed and as it approached, I heard a slight hum.  The lights appeared to be in a fixed position and randomly arranged.  I could perceive a structure supporting the lights.  The structure appeared similar to light cloud and as it got closer the object appeared like a mist or vapour.

The object appeared to be shaped like a commercial jet’s wingspan, travelling on its side.  I estimate that the sighting lasted for 15 to 20 seconds, until it was out of sight, by this time it could have passed over four suburbs. 

I observed this object with my husband, who is sceptical, he confirmed that he had not seen anything like it.  When I asked my husband regarding his thoughts weeks after the sighting, he said, ‘That he barely remembered the event.’

I look for this object every time I view the sky.
