Report:

Paul was near the cnr of First Ave and Blaxland Rd at approx 4.30pm watching the Olympic flame travelling thru Eastwood looking toward the West, in the Parramatta direction, when he noticed a stationary, slightly larger than, star like object. The object was observed for approx 10 seconds, very low on the horizon, approx 5 degrees above the horizon. Paul rubbed his eyes and moved his gaze to confirm it was not due to a floater in his eyes. Paul then grabbed a camera but as he brought the camera to his face he noticed thru peripheral vision that the object had moved suddenly at great speed to the East toward Chatswood. The object was like a 2-inch blur as it left Paul’s vision, he estimated that the object would have travelled from Parramatta to Chatswood in 3 to 4 seconds. The object travelled over the right shoulder of Paul. The object was only visible for a brief time after moving and Paul estimated where its flight path might have been. If the rapid movement was not an optical illusion, i have no explanation for the sighting. If the rapid movement was an optical illusion, it may have been a plane coming at an angle that maximised its reflection that then altered it’s flight path, appearing to disappear.

Doug Moffett
