Go Back Report # 1338



April 6th 1997 PALM BEACH NSW 2045 hrs 10 secs NL

A woman and her 11-year-old son were having an ice cream at the water's edge at a secluded section of Palm Beach, Coffs Harbour. A "pop pop" noise attracted their attention. A blue moon-shaped thing was coming towards them. They had the clear impression that an area 10m in radius was lit up around them for about 3 seconds. The object seemed to come straight in from slightly SE (out to sea). Seen as a "massive electric blue light." It started to move out after about 6 seconds. Pop noise heard again. Their faces were lit up like silver electric blue. It seemed to move out to the NE (seaward). To the mother it disappeared low on the horizon. To the boy it disappeared into the sea like a "big blue orb," which towards the end seemed to have a red, thin, trickling, snaky tail. Phone interview with both witnesses about half an hour after the event by Bill Chalker, UFOIC.
