"I felt it" reports:
Melbourne Australia / not felt: Very strange didn't put two and two together until I saw this earthquake report. I had binoculars looking out over as far to the see as the binoculars would allow. I saw two large cigar shaped all white with yellow tints on back and front. They popped out of the dates and just left in a split second. This was about 24 hours ago. Strangest most amazing things I have ever seen before
