Hi Doug

I would like to report a sighting I had on Wednsday March 20th at 7.30pm. The anomoly was a bright white light, twice as big as the brightest star in the sky. It was travelling aprox. 65 to 70 degrees above the eastern horizon high up and pretty much directly south to north. It was very bright 4 of us noticed it as soon as it crossed the southern tree line. I live in the Leppington area above Sydney towards the mountains. I watched it disappear behind the northern tree line, it took 5 minutes 7.30pm to 7,35pm, it was travelling slowly, slower than a plane and there was no sound. I viewed it through binoculars for at least 2 minutes, I could see no structure just light. As I was watching it I could feel a humming and vibration kind of like an electrical charge. The other 3 witnesses dismissed it as a satellite, Im not so sure. I made the necessary enquiries and this is the reply I recieved back.

The sun would have been 5.5 degrees below the horizon at 7.30pm on the 20th March 2002. Although it is possible to see a satellite under such conditions, it is not common. Some satellites can flare quite brightly notably the iridium constellation, so still might be seen at that time. I did check and there were no iridium flares predicted for Leppington at that time.

Regards Larraine.
