Just over 16 years ago I was a backpacker visiting Australia. I was travelling east along the highway between Tenant Creek and Mount Isa. With little to do in the outback the group of us, 2 Germans, a Korean and myself decided to drive into the night to get further along the boring highway before setting up camp on the side of the road. I was a passenger in the back left seat of the station wagon. The sun had long gone down when we saw unusual lights out the left side of the car. I believe we were looking north. There were up to 5 lights in the sky, FAR in the distance on the horizon. They appeared as small orange disks. The lights would dart around a small area which I imagine to be only a few kilometres. They moved side to side, up and down and at times disappeared. We even watched a funnel/beam of light appear below one of the disks from time to time.
This experience happened over a 45 MINUTE period while we were travelling at approximately 130 km/hr east. It was amazing. We all didn't know what to make of it. I had never had any interest in the subject of UFOs and never spoke of it again until a few year back when it came up in an open-minded conversation with someone in NZ. She said, there are heaps of sightings like that in that area. I was surprised to hear this as with time passing I began to doubt my own memory of such an amazing sight.
Recently having interest in the subject, I notice some of the videos out there are very similar to what I recall seeing.
