The Novak Encounter
A Close Encounter of the Fourth Kind
Have you seen a UFO?
It was a very still and quiet night and there was no sound of any aircraft motor, though once it started getting further away we both thought we could hear a slight humming sound. A few minutes later an aeroplane flew past and it was a lot further away than the object and we could easily hear the noise of its motor and see its flashing lights, even though it was a lot further away.
Note by agent: There was an Iridium satellite with a possible flare at 5.48pm. The
path, however, was SSE -
On Saturday 28th June L and his father witnessed a number of UFO's from their backyard in Bowral. Mr. L. was outside at 8.30pm and spotted what he originally thought was a bright orange coloured satellite. He called his son L outside to see it. As they watched it travel over their house they realised it was not a satellite as it was too low and wasn't travelling in a direct line. It was described as wobbling and ascending silently, suddenly another one appeared heading in the same direction as the first one and they started to do loops as they ascended. L and his father watched the objects for approximately 10 minutes. The first one was in view for about 2 or 3 minutes before the second one came into view. They were travelling from north to south but not going over the horizon. Then they suddenly ascended and disappeared. The next morning on the local Southern Highlands radio 102.9 they listened to the radio talk back show and a few people were calling in having witnessed the same bright orange lights in the sky. Some of the witnesses claimed to have seen up to 7 objects on the same night.
On Monday 30th June, R was staying at his Nan's house in Brighton Le Sands, when he witnessed a strange craft. He noted the time as 10 minutes past 7 in the morning, he was sitting at the dining table having breakfast and idly looking out of the window when he noticed a black triangular shaped object flying in low clouds over a 10 storey building. He described it as being as big as a 20 cent coin held at arms length and travelling north, he lost sight of it as it past out of view of the window frame but curious he continued to look in that direction, Suddenly the object appeared again, this time travelling south, he alerted his mother who also witnessed this black triangular craft and as they were watching it they were both amazed to see it just disappear.

The Hills district -
I woke my husband and he is as sceptical as ever. He said, 'that's no plane. I have no idea what they are'. He just went back to bed.
I then saw at three different times what looked like shooting stars. Two were peripheral and the third I caught as it happened.
One other thing I noticed looked like red independent lights (just dots to me) come from the larger object I first witnessed. I stayed looking for 45 minutes or so as I really thought I was seeing things! I was wide awake, I assure you.

Near Blacktown -
Through the binoculars, I managed to see two close up: one was cigar shaped and the other a diamond. I could clearly see the outline of the object. In a few instances we saw a diamond of lights (one light at the front, back, top and bottom) level out into a line of four lights in a row before accelerating out of view.
The craft and the "explosions" made no sound whatsoever, ruling out any type of commercial aircraft and judging by the distance, they objects looked at least 500m+ in length.
It is unknown if they were circling, but though out the two hours, I must have seen at least 50 instances of the objects and having about 8 or 9 visible at the same time.
At first I thought it might have been military training from the RAAF base at Richmond, but there was no squadrons and no set pattern to any of the crafts flights, and upon seeing the closer ones, looked like no craft I have ever seen.
My brother was on the phone to a friend who also witnessed this from his house.
On 3 separate occasions, about 10-

Yanderra (Southern Highlands) -
Leumeah (NE suburb from Campbelltown) 30th December at 7.32pm:
Witness was hanging washing out at the time. Mild wind conditions SW to NE with fine layer of Cirrus clouds. Sudden flyby of spherical object from SE to NW. Airborne debris or any other airborne artifacts can be possibly ruled out as direction of travel was inconsistent with wind direction.
Observer described the unknown to be white semi-

Reported by Dominic McNamara
G was still wide awake at 12:54 am on the morning of the 1st June when he turned on his mobile. Just a few seconds before, he had witnessed an object, brilliantly lit and hovering silently behind the large tree that dominates the skyline outside. The tree is describes as “about 20 m high and about 10m wide. There were bright lights coming into the room”, he said. For about 7 to 8 seconds, G wondered what they were as these lights appeared not to be constant, but dispersed somehow and a strange reddish pinkish colour. In fact, it seemed almost ‘sneaky’ to G that such an object
appeared where it could not be directly observed. As the object receded, G was impressed to see what e called a “massive ship” which then zigzagged. He described the object as “like a grey lump in the middle of the light with a ball on the top. My Mrs was right next to me when it was leaving. The whole thing lasted 7 to 8 seconds. Eventually, the sighting was lost to the horizon.”
