An Australian witness at Melbourne reported watching multiple objects in random groups, according to testimony in Case 89142 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The event occurred on December 26, 2017.
“Some dark gray to black-colored objects were observed appearing, congregating in random-shaped groups, becoming more visible (darker) and than either moving away or fading away from sight,” the witness stated. “They were observed by three people for around half-an-hour and I took a few snaps on my iPhone. I took a couple using HDR (with normal on) as well. I found the objects had moved slightly in those consecutive frames. A jet had passed over as well and my husband took photos of the vapor trail that revealed a couple more, which weren’t noticed when the photos were taken, only after when I reviewed the images. It was as if they were using the cloud cover to hide in. Prior to taking the photos, larger groups had been seen, some as low in the view as between and just above the tree line. However, I believe they were some distance away and definitely would have been over the sea. As dawn became brighter I could no longer see any ‘dots.’”
Australian MUFON National Director Roger Stankovic closed this case as an Unknown – Other.
