Report:

Alison’s two small children alerted her to a bright star like object at approx 4.30am that appeared like a supernova, very bright with silver sparks flying off it to about 1 to 3 cm relatively. Duration was approx 1 hr then Alison went to bed. The object appeared stationary for the most part, although appeared to move about 1 cm higher before returning to original position. It was below the level of the other stars and above the level of the scattered cloud. The object appeared to have lateral movement of approx one and a half cm’s over a mountain. The sparks seemed to dim toward the end of the hours observation. The object was seen in a sou sou westerly direction. This is the part of the sky and time when Venus could be seen. Venus is rising at approx 4am and is particularly bright at the moment. Due to the effects of humidity causing the lower atmosphere to be lumpy and thick, Scintillation would be greater than normal and due to it’s low position above the horizon at that time this sighting is most likely to be Venus. Witness is staying up tonight to see if the same effect happens tonight, she will let us know the outcome. The apparent downward movement of the object may be due to inversions in the atmosphere caused by the high humidity.
