Sighting Reports

Location: Lindisfarne Tas
Date: 10th June 1998

An object was seen dropping to earth leaving a vapor trail over
MT Faulkner. The trail that was seen first descend from a cloud
the object fell out of it when the vapor trail stopped. The
witness described the object resembling a Mac Donald's type
logo; a large M shaped object. The witness was driving during
the entire time and mentioned that the sunset gave the object an
unusual appearance. The descending motion of the object was as
if it was attached to a parachute, however, he could not see a
parachute on the object.

An orange light was sighted at 10.00pm when the witness went
outside to feed his dog which at first looked like an n

across the sky the witness was still trying to listen for engine
noise, it stopped for 10-20 seconds then dropped straight down
out of sight.

I contacted the Benalla Police Station to see if they had
received any other reports, which they had not. I also contacted

done on Fridays (Fridays night was when the sighting took
