in Western Australia
My husband works in a scientific field and I, at the time, in government administration. We are both level-headed people. I think it was the 17 December 1997 at 10:30 p.m. that the sighting occurred. It was a beautiful summery night with soft breezes from the ocean, and the stars looked so bright that my husband and I stayed out longer than normal for our nightly walk along the coastal strip.
As we were walking along the footpath on Marmion Avenue, a main road between the suburbs of Ocean Reef and Heathridge (Perth, Western Australia), my husband said look, and pointed upward toward the sky. My jaw dropped and I said to him, "What the hell is that?" His response was pretty much the same as mine. We both did not know what on earth we were seeing. We watched this creature?? fly until it was out of sight in a North to South direction parallel along the coastline.
What we saw was a huge, triangular object gliding across the sky without a sound. It was flying (we estimate) about 300 feet up in the sky, but due to the amount of ground lighting from homes, sports fields, parks and businesses, we were able to see the under colour of this object, but not see any defining features. It was a ruddy reddish brown colour and most definitely looked organic - we both totally agree on that. It was shaped somewhat like a stingray and glided through the sky with little effort. We estimated that the wingspan would have been 30 to 50 feet across, tapering at the tail in a triangular shape. (My husband is better at describing it, as he has a scientific mind.)
We talked about it all the way home, trying to figure out what on earth it could be. It was nothing that fit any normal type object or bird you would see in the sky. When I went to work the next day, I told a couple of people at work and proceeded to ring the UFO report line to report it and see if anyone else had seen it. All day I rang that number and no one answered the telephone, so I gave up. A short time later, in the Sunday Times newspaper, someone else had in fact seen a large triangular object flying in the night sky further south on the coastline. Going from memory, I think they described it as being metallic, but what we saw was definitely not metallic! It appeared to be some type of creature. We both swear to that.
The memory of that event is etched in our minds and whenever we think about it our minds again see that strange creature - or whatever it was. We have often talked about it over the years and still no closer to finding out what it was, but we have speculated much. I have drawn the conclusion that it could be possible that many dimensions co-exist within our dimension and probably our perceptions cloud our vision of these other dimensions, but at times when our guard is down we see clearer.
have a paranormal tale to tell?
