Out There stories relating to "Australia UFO"

This video starts with what appears to be a fake clip of an alien looming up in the dark, but then another clip follows of people in a car apparently being frightened by a light overhead. The clip does not have the appearance of a fake. This is followed by a longer clip of something hovering in the sky. A comment appears in the video description that it was dismissed as "space junk." As it is not on a ballistic trajectory, that is not correct. There is a possibility that it is a lighted drone being flown relatively high. If so, it remains an unknown. Clip One: D--Probably False. Clip Two: Cannot Evaluate. Clip Three: B--Likely True

Two astrophotographers found this image on their dashcam while driving in Australia. Our experts are unsure about what it is, but the consensus seems to be that it's not a fast moving insect. If it is not an unknown, then it must be a bird. We have not been able to find any type of nightbird that would fly at high speed in a straight line like this in Australia. But if any of our Australian readers know different, we would be interested to hear from you. Please comment below.

This video shows a strong infrared return of a triangular object at high altitude which either breaks up or stops emitting heat. (You can see it at the extreme bottom of the screen. Easiest to see using full screen setting.) Migratory birds can create the illusion of UFOs on infrared films, but no migratory bird flock would disintegrate like this. This is an interesting, unusual capture. Rated B.

An Australian pilot photographed this object from the ground. It is too brightly and evenly lit to be a radio controlled device such as a homebuilt drone. The sighting took place last night in Caloundra along Australia's Sunshine Coast. The pilot told the Sunshine Coast Daily, "I have heard of and seen many, many things over the course of my career...but nothing like this."

We agree. This strangely lit object looks somewhat like a plane, but the intensity of the lighting qualifies it as presently unknown. The pilot wishes to remain anonymous. For more, visit the Sunshine Coast Daily.

A resident of Australia's Gold Coast taped a UFO for an extended period of time. Eventually, it was checked out by a police helicopter, but every time the chopper approached, it turned out its lights. The police concluded that it was a radio controlled device, but local residents dispute this.

Between 2007 and 2009, a remarkable UFO appeared a number of times over Kumbergaz, Turkey. There was a great deal of video made, and US UFO researchers Dr. Roger Leir was among the witnesses who personally observed the object. Now a strikingly similar UFO has been photographed in Australia. While the Kumbergaz UFO at one point seemed to have figures visible in it, the same space in the Australian UFO is empty. The Kumbergaz UFO was an unusual form, and it is remarkable to see it again. It appeared for two years in Turkey. Already another group of witnesses has seen it on a second night in Australia. This is a likely unknown. (The Australian UFO is on the left, the Turkish one on the right.)

The object pictured in this video by photographer Drew Ryan has appeared over the Empire Bay area in New South Wales on July 3--as it happened, World UFO Day. According to Mr. Ryan and others, it has been seen before on at least five occasions. This rules out a meteor--as does its movement--as well as essentially all other prosaic explanations. A high probability that this is a genuine unknown.

This video was made on May 15 by a sharp-eyed skywatcher in Melbourne. The object is moving too fast to be a bird, a radio-controlled model plane or a balloon. Brad Morris says of his video, "This shows what really happens when you're in the air around a high activity zone..i also captured many saucers in the same cloud system yet to upload most of them..."

The object is very hard to see at normal speed, but Mr. Morris has done a good job of demonstrating its presence by using slow motion and screen grabs. This is most likely an unknown, and a reminder of how much of this must be going on worldwide, given how difficult it is to see and how most people have been conditioned to believe that these objects don't exist. However, given their behavior, which hardly seems related at all to what 'alien scientists' might do observing us, the question must be asked: what are they doing? Why was this object even there? Certainly, no obvious purpose presents itself.

A photographer in Perth, Australia has joined the growing number of people who have discovered that taking an interest in UFOs results in a response. After getting a new camera and watching the skies, he has taken what appear to be some good daylight UFO photos. Perhaps, rather than some sort of official disclosure, a worldwide increase in interest is going to work in both directions, until, in the end, we take these unknown objects for granted.

The story sourced here from Australia describes a witness who saw her first UFO in 1997, and has since seen many. The belief among close encounter witnesses has been, 'if you notice UFOs, they will notice you,' but it could also be that people are being sensitized to noticing these generally fast moving and small objects in the sky. Daylight UFOs are usually easily distinguishable from planes, but it can be surprisingly easy to mistake and insect or a bird for a UFO, especially if the creature is closer than it appears. On the other hand, sightings of small, high-flying disks, such as are reported in this case, cannot be explained as known objects.

A skywatcher in New South Wales seems to be getting watched back by the objects he is seeing. Alf Preston of New South Wales reports that he has been seeing UFOs, most recently while observing Venus through his telescope. For once, they can't be dismissed as Venus because they were seen beside it at the same time.

This is a good reminder that people who actively seek UFO sightings are often rewarded these days. But it takes not only persistence, but luck. Mr. Preston clearly has both. Unfortunately, what he doesn't have are pictures. Hopefully, he'll get a camera and get out there with it!

One of our best photography experts has weighed in on the side of this being a light on a boat. Here is his comment:

"Just measure the distance between the leading edge of the top light in the first and second pix. Let that distance equal 4.5 seconds. Then measure the length of the top light's streak. That will tell you the shutter speed. Assuming Crowe is right about the frame rate, the  shutter speed seems just about right for a night exposure with a Canon 5D. And given that lens's field of view, 8kph (max legal boat speed in that situation) works out just about right with a margin of error of, say, +/- 50%, max."

"If the object had been moving at 80kph either he'd have missed it completely or  a single streak would have covered the full width of one frame, and one frame only."

"None of this has anything to do with camera-subject distance. It's mainly a matter of field of view (i.e., how wide or narrow the lens was zoomed) relative to the lateral speed of the boat."

In your Out There editor's opinion, this case is closed--darn it!

These waves of unknown objects can be recorded in the infrared almost anywhere. But what are they? They are not moving like birds, because the are generally all in parallel motion, like these. They cannot be planes. We would be most interested if you are recording such footage. Please let us know at whitley@strieber.com.

Infrared video readily records birds, insects and even the smallest meteors. However, this video shows objects at altitude moving in a very steady formation. We have been unable to find any species of high-flying bird that might fly like this, and these object do not have the footprint of planes, which generally offer a much brighter return. Still, it's impossible to be certain that they are not something conventional. The smaller objects flashing past are probably meteors or birds, but the higher formation remains an unknown.

This photograph, taken by accident in New South Wales, shows a wingless, metallic object that was moving so fast that it was visible in only one of two snapshots taken seconds apart. It's not a plane, a bug or a bird, so that leaves the unknown.

Out There Editor steps up on sopabox.

This story from Queensland in Australia is typical of about half a dozen we get in each day. It's not spectacular. There is no reason to disbelieve it. And the world continues to ignore the truth: something in haunting our skies. But why are we so passive about it? As Whitley Strieber points out in Solving the Communion Enigma, science has all the tools necessary to solve the UFO and close encounter questions. But few scientists dare to get near the subject, and there is no grant funding whatsoever. None. Given the thousands of UFO sightings every year and the millions of close encounter experiences, this is so completely irrational that it seems like some level of control is being exerted to prevent us from looking at the subject rationally.

Your Out There editor's first impression of this capture was that it was a meteor swarm. But then I looked deeper into this YouTuber's page and found another video of something somewhat similar that is definitely NOT a meteor swarm. So what has he found? This guy is worth watching. Sometimes people who show an interest in what's out there get rewarded with a pretty spectacular display. To see the other, even stranger video, click here. My best guess now is that we are looking at living creatures of some sort. Pretty amazing stuff.

And hey, speaking of pretty amazing, Whitley has published a new novel as an ebook. I got a copy the second I saw his post, and I've just started it. All I can say is THE GUY CAN WRITE. The first couple of chapters are just breathtaking. You can get it on your Kindle, Nook, etc., or from the UC store as a PDF.

There is no reason to doubt a report when it comes with a good photograph, as this one does. This is just another catch in the UFO wave now sweeping the world.

The object pictured here and discussed on the link is not a bird or a plane. Close examination shows that it has four narrow fins at one end, making it appear like a rocket. It is a genuine unknown, and part of the long tradition of 'ghost rockets' that starts in Sweden right after World War II, and continues to Newfoundland and China. For a better image of the object, click on the link.

This is unlikely to be faked, and it is moving far too quickly to be a small aircraft or a balloon. A genuine unknown.

All you need is a little mylar thread to create this hoax, if it is a hoax. Nobody in the store at the time--at least, not visible on the security camera. Anyway, a fun story.

If this is indeed a UFO photo, it is a highly unusual one, in that it shows light beaming down from an object immediately above the car.

Katherine, Northern Territories, has become an Australian UFO hotspot. Note all the links in the story to other recent UFO sightings in the area.

Interesting case. Descriptions of UFOs causing visible weather effects are very rare.

The first 20 seconds of this video reveal a boomerang in the upper part of the frame. It's light and hard to see, but very definitely there, and it is not a balloon. However, it appears to be flying rather than sliding in a more typical UFO pattern. Could it be a classified aircraft? Possible, but unlikely to appear over a large metro area. Graded A.
