Caller reports a sighting from 7.45 pm 31/08/00: Caller reports he saw a ufo afterburner in the sky, no sound, travelling East to West and across the sea, duration 3-5 mins. Caller states he saw, through binoculars, pieces coming off and falling to the ground. He rang Amberley Air Force Base and they had no information, he also phoned an Astronomical Society, again no information.
Size: 50 cent
Colour: Bright yellow
Speed: Steady like a plane
Duration: 3 minutes
Andrew said he went out side to check on his neighbours house at around 7.35pm. When he noticed a bright yellow glowing abject in the Westerly sky from his house located at Jindallee. He called his wife out to have a look at the object asking her to bring his binoculars. He said they watched the object for around 3 minutes. The Object moved away in an easterly direction, the speed was something what like a jet.
Andrew said he thought it may have been an F1 11 doing a dump and burn. So he rang Amberley Air Force Base. They informed him they had no planes in the area at that time. He said he got a feeling he was being fogged off by the lady on the other end of the line. So he insisted they check their radar. He said: if it wasn't one of theirs, "then they should be made aware of it".
He said: As I was looking at it through my binoculars I could see flames
coming from it.
He said: If it was a prank then this was a good one and if kids are behind this and are able to make an object travel as fast as a jet "with flames coming out of it horizontally" then their clever kids. So No I don't think it was the garbage and a fire lighter trick, "thats for sure".
He said: I rang the Brisbane Astronomical Society and they said the object it was traveling to slow for a meteorite.
