Grant Denyer claims he has seen an Unidentified Flying Object.

The 43-year-old said he had been driving through Narre Warren, in Melbourne’s southeast, at night when he “noticed a couple of very strange lights just hovering in the sky … and they were too bright to be stars or planets”.
He was aged just 19.
Denyer said the five dots, sitting in two groups, were “about as bright as a plane but not moving at all”.
When asked whether the dots could simply be satellites or planes, Grant stressed it was definitely “not satellites”.
“A satellite wouldn’t be that bright, and it would be higher in the sky if you could see it at all,” he said.
“This was in the southeast Melbourne suburbs so a fair bit of light pollution around so you wouldn’t really see the stars or a satellite anyway.”
“I was wondering why they weren’t moving,” he continued.
“A plane should be moving, a helicopter should be moving, they don’t just sit there. And then one of the lights left its group (at) supersonic speed and just stopped dead on a dime. And I know there’s nothing in this world that can do that.
“I believe what I saw was some form of UFO.”
‘I saw what I saw’
The father-of-three went on to say he had kept the experience a secret for years over fears he’d be “considered a bit of a wack job”.
“But I don’t care – I saw what I saw.”
Denyer said he believes he has a “reasonable, mechanical understanding of how things operate” having raced cars and flown planes.
“That’s nothing that is in any textbook that I’ve ever seen,” he concluded.
Australia also has thousands of its own UFO sighting reports dating back decades, including hovering flying saucers and giant black triangles.
