Location of Sighting: Bendigo,Victoria, Australia
Date of Sighting: May 5, 1997
Time of Sighting: 9:20 PM Local Time

Description: Witnessed by: Two only
Location: (residential suburb of) Bendigo, Victoria, Australia.
Outside in the open yard of our home.

Description of Object: Translucent boomerang shaped object.

Direction: The object followed a constant direction of approximately NW to NNW at a constant slow speed.

Weather conditions: Calm, windless, still, cloudless, no moon at that time, stars were bright against clear dark sky.

Temperature: Approximately 10°C to 15°C

Length of Sighting: My wife saw the object for 10 seconds. I estimate the sighting time was 15 seconds.

Sighting as reported by Husband:
It was a beautiful clear cool evening and my wife & I were outside in the yard talking. As we were chatting, I was looking up at the sky and happened to look directly at something moving overhead. I said “look at that!” To our amazement we saw some type of aircraft gliding silently overhead. It was not far off being directly overhead and at low altitude. If I hold my arm fully stretched towards the sky with my first and fourth fingers pointed and spread as far apart as I can; that is how much sky the wing span of the craft covered from my perspective. It was a brief sighting (10 to 15 seconds) with the craft disappearing behind trees that obscured our view. From our home (southeastern Bendigo) it headed towards the northern area of Bendigo. I was able to see it for longer than my wife; about 15 seconds; as I was able to move to where I could see it between the trees, that by then, were obscuring my wife’s view. The object was translucent. Stars could be seen through it yet it had visible form. It was not unlike seeing a translucent jelly fish in shallow sea water. Although the leading edge was distinct, the trailing edge (or rear) was indistinct as though it was blurry. The shape was like a boomerang. At the time it reminded me vaguely of the wings of a typical jet passenger aircraft (Boeing or Airbus), but without the fuselage or tail section, yet our impression was that it looked whole and complete. The shape was very like, what I now as, the B2 Stealth Bomber. It was a very quiet, calm evening outside our home that night and there was absolutely no sound that we could make out coming from the object as it went over; unlike that of any jet or propeller craft or helicopter; all of which we often hear and see in our location. Although translucent, the object appeared dark; not lit by any kind of glow or lights. Upon reflection, I would estimate it’s altitude to be approximately 150 meters and had a wing span of approximately 50 meters. I have found these figures difficult to estimate, but put together the above estimate based on such as elapsed time, apparent speed, apparent distances and approximated angles from when it passed over. We were left feeling in awe, having been so privileged and fortunate to have seen something so unusual, serene and graceful. Neither of us felt any fear. Before we got to discuss what we saw in any detail, I suggested we both pencil draw what we saw. They looked much the same other than our different methods of sketching. I have misplaced those drawings, but I’m sure that we can find them if ever required.

The next day, I felt compelled to tell someone about our amazing experience. I was unsure about who to tell and what to say. Considering that I run a small business and my wife is a registered nurse working at both local hospitals, the last thing we wanted was to be known as the local fruit cakes for having gone public with our story. So at first, I gave an anonymous report to a local radio station; their story went to air. I guess I was expecting others to come forward too with their account of the seeing the same object, but I heard nothing. As days turned into weeks, I felt a type of anxiety building up inside me; I think now because to me there was something unresolved about this. I made some inquiries about who I could or should contact. I tried phoning a military reporting number; was not taken seriously. I tried a UFO hot line number and got some jerk who was kidding me along and stringing out my call (as I out found out later) to make money by timed/tolled incoming phone calls from people wanting to chat or ones such as myself making UFO reports. I was then feeling very angry! At a later time, I found a phone number of a UFO investigation organization, rang it, got a message service, left some brief information about my sighting and my contact details. They didn’t ever return my call. Several years later (in 2005) I happened to see a UFO magazine in a news agency, flicked through it and saw an article written by a UFO investigator by the name of George Simpson. There was a phone number for contacting George. I rang it, got a message service, but this time I left a surly voice message saying something like “this is the last time I’m going to bother reporting our sighting!” To my amazement, I got a return call from George! He was very interested in our story and arranged to do a trip to Bendigo soon after, to do a video interview with us. He later posted his written story about our encounter on a website. The link to that story is…
(Was there yesterday, but not there today! Not sure why??)

After having George Simpson follow up on my report, the sense of anxiety and anger left me and has not bothered me since.

So, to this day, it still remains a mystery as to what we saw. Was it man made? Was it from some another intelligent race? Or could there be a different reason behind its origin? We have no idea! Although 18 years have now passed, we still talk about the experience from time to time.

    My sighting was on April 11, 2020, in Pfullendorf, Germany: The object was flying roughly SSE to NNW, altitude was unknown. I traveled approximately 1 Km in 10 seconds (360 KPH, 220 MPH). It was quiet and made no noise.

    I was watching the night sky when a whitish, translucent, boomerang shaped object appeared straight ahead and above me moving in a northerly direction. The size was about the size and shape of a flock of geese. The altitude was hard to judge, but probably no more than a couple thousand feet in which case the wingspan would be between 50 and one hundred meters. I did not notice if the stars beyond it were blended out. The contours were all rounded with no sharp edges. I even blinked my eyes to make sure they are not playing a trick. The object kept on moving until it disappeared behind the roof of my house. In any case it was unidentified.

    PS: I am a commercial pilot and consider myself a rational person. I have not been able to locate a picture of a drone matching this description. The closest would be the Mars glider concept from NASA. (The size of which is only two feet though and not the dimensions observed.)

    Whew! Thank you million times for posting your experience. I just had my second experience seeing these translucent boomerang type “beings”? The first time seeing such object was in the month of August. The Location was Eltville, Germany. A friend and I were sitting out on the patio enjoying a good conversation. This translucent boomerang object went whizzing by. I asked immediately after seeing “did you see that?” My friend replied “yup”. It wasn’t a scary feeling, just awe. This evening, January 29, 2020 I was heading out to my parked Jeep to retrieve my phone charger. I was gazing up admiring the current crescent moon and Venus when I saw the translucent object zip by definitely catching my eye and then it zipped back the opposite direction. It was the same V shaped boomerang type “thing”. The height it was flying was just over the top of the apartment building which is four levels high. I’ve been poking around on the internet trying to find others who’ve seen the same. Your account is spot on with what I saw.

    Wolfe’s notes on UFO activity in the Denver area:
    Sept 25th, 26th&27th 4 sightings sightings of a Translucent UFO + cylinder or shape shifting aircraft.
    Sept 26th: I had 3 sightings within 45 minutes during the evening of a UFO. It was a U or V shaped UFO. This gargantuan thing was dead silent and translucent! I could see the stars right through it and still make out the shape of a boomerang. On the the second and third pass it looked like it changed shape slightly each time second time more V it made a smooth turn to the right. The third pass, I saw two faint lights on the wing tips and it straightened out a bit or at least appeared to shape shift. It was also moving faster than a normal airplane making a semi erratic turn to the right and slightly up. The object moved about the speed of a fast jet. There were commercial planes and helicopters flying by a minute after and they were noisy. I saw this object a day prior for the first time flying a different direction across the sky! My mind was blown, again. I’ve seen a few different types now! After I saw the object I researched the type of UFO I witnessed and to my surprise many people have seen the same thing all over the world to the T!

    Update Sept 27th: Tonight’s activity presented me with another sighting! This time in the shape of a lit up cylinder flying horizontal.
    Sept 28th: I saw that thing again tonight at 8:35 going from NE to SW. A little higher altitude. But I could still make out the gigantic boomerang shape! It was cruising consistently that direction. That ship makes conventional aircraft seem ancient. Keep an eye out!
    Sept 29th: Tonight again just now 8:57 PM same direction NE to SW.
    Also: Super fast mover silent bar of light South to north
    Sept 30th: Last night I witnessed two different craft;
    Ok so again last night at 8:57 PM I witnessed the same translucent craft going from NE to SW. And at 9:04 PM I witnessed a different craft. It looked smaller and from the front it looked like a light bar. It was moving as if it was an F-16 on the Fourth of July, super fast, only completely silent, no sound whatsoever! As it passed I noticed a small yellow glow from beneath the aircraft and could almost make out a butterfly type shape. Like I said the second UFO was going too fast to make out. Way faster than the first sighting.
    Oct 2nd: That thing just flew over again, I tried to record it with my I-phone. It was going the opposite direction. I can kind of see it on my video program.
    Oct. 7th: Just had another boomerang one fly over 8:32 No lights, not really blurry either. It is just translucent, fast, and silent. I can distinctly make out the shape. I could draw it from what I saw. Anyhow, it went faster tonight. And higher, it came from NE and went SW and banked to the West. It my seventh sighting of “V rang” I believe my house in the direct flight pattern. There were no lights, not really blurry either. Also I’ve been seeing one that is insanely fast and it makes arcs with it’s light on in space. I’ve seen it twice now. I saw one that could have been it tonight. Only reason I couldn’t tell it from a meteor was it didn’t turn. But it had no stardust trail.

    Oct 19th: 8th sighting of the boomerang at 8 PM tonight going from SW to N. Had very dim lights illuminating bottom. Still transparent and silent, moving fairly quick.
    Oct 25th: I saw that thing again last night 8:01 PM coming from the north and made a turn west toward downtown, probably checking out bronco game LOL. I tried to video it. It didn’t turn out well.
    Nov. 2nd: I saw it again!! This time it was a bar? And it was flying over super slow!! It was tough to see with all the smog no lights that I could see. 12th time 9:55 PM
    Nov 12
    11th time I’ve seen the translucent boomerang Lost all notes on directions it flew just had the date. I had two records kept of accounts and both were lost.
    Dec 14th: I saw it again just now (8:19 PM) going from NE to SW. It had three lights very dim. A commercial plane was flying at the same time. The commercial jet noisy as can be. It was going pretty fast I had my camera again and tried to get it. It’s very blurry and hard to pick up even in slow motion and blown up. My camera isn’t good enough at night.

    I saw a group of what looked like white orbs traveling extremely fast going SW and making a turn in formation to SSW at 9:50 PM over Arvada, Colorado. I have also seen a translucent shape shifting boomerang craft fly over 13 times and have documented it within my own records. This also could have been the translucent shape shifting craft flying lower, but it looked different. They could have been separate. These things or thing was traveling faster than a fighter with no sound. 9:50 PM could be a possible route time as I have been witnessing the craft around this time after the time change. Before the time change it was around 8:50 now 9:50.
