UFO Landing in Auckland, Auckland on 1979-01-05 00:00:00 - I awoke sometime after midnight for no reason and was drawn to lounge window. object was hovering and then going up at 45 degree angle then hovering then again 45 degree another direction hovering. it landed at one point and then took off.
I was eleven years old. we were staying in a house in auckland and i awoke from my sleep after midnight maybe 1-2am for no reason, i did not need to go to the toilet, there had been no noise. i felt drawn to the lounge window and was mesmerised by this object i saw in the sky. i knew that it couldn't be a plane as it just hovered in the air for few minutes and then would go up on a 45 degree angle, hover again. it was not behaving as any aircraft would, there was no noise. i saw it as a light. it landed across other side of a lake on the grass for short time. i felt as if i was awoken and drawn to go and see it. it seemed strange to me in the morning that i had not thought to wake anyone to see it, itor to get a camera and photograph it, it w as if i was under its spell somehow. in the end it took off at a great speed. in the morning i saw a large round depression in the grass on the other side of the lake. this happened over thirty years ago and i have never forgotten it. just learned about this site so thought i would post my sighting.
