05.08.78 LAKE CRESCENT, TAS 1130 hrs   
TA 1978-089 

Two boats were out on a lake at Lake Crescent, when one group of three people saw a brown cigar-shaped object travelling fast across the water virtually at water level, passing behind the second boat before disappearing. The object travelled towards the northwest corner of the lake before it was lost to view. The object was about thirty metres long but only half a metre thick. It was one to two metres above the water and from the distance covered in the minute visible was travelling at 150 to 180 kph. The ends were tapered. No smoke of [sic-or] lights were visible.
