Banora Point, Australia Bright Light Comes To A Complete Stop & Hovers
Date: September 8, 2005
Time: Approx; 10:30 p.m.
On the 8th of September, I returned from work at about 10:30 p.m., when I looked east and noticed a Bright Light in the sky, flashing Red and Blue. The light was in the South, traveling east. It slowly traveled east for about a minute, then suddenly stopped. It hovered stationary for about 30 minutes. Because it was so late, I didn't want to wake the rest of the family. I grabbed my Video Camera and tried to focus. But the video camera rarely got a good focus. I tried infrared and normal; the most effective was infrared though.
I observed the light for about 30 Minutes, but it was getting late, and I was getting to tired to film it. So I abandoned it and went home. I've seen them all before, but there was no way to focus the camera to let me show anyone else what I saw. Just reviewing the Video, there are a few frames, which show the object quite clear, but there are no objects in the foreground to show where the object is, therefore, the camera focused in and out, usually blurring the orb unfortunately.
This is the first orb I have seen in the South. There is not much point in sending the Video in, because it has few frames that show the object clear enough. To my family, it just looked like a star.
Also, another thing. I was browsing my image directory, and I came across some screenshots of Weather radar in March this year. I usually check the radar to see what rain is coming and such. But in March, I noticed for a couple of weeks, that there was always clouding over an area named "Ipswich". I have 7 screenshots of the radar, all showing clouding over this area. The strangest thing of all is that sometimes even if there is no clouding at all on the radar, there is always cloud cover over Ipswich. I have attached all 7 Pictures.
I quickly did a search about Ipswich and found that there is a RAAF Air Base there. I'm not sure if it is still in use. What stopped me from sending these Images in is that the cloud coverage is right in the centre of the radar. I assumed it was a side effect of the radar, or a glitch. The strange clouding is not usually over Ipswich now. Perhaps it was a Radar fault, I don't know. Here is a link where you can see the radar.

Anyways, I will keep you up to date with anything that happens down here.
Thank you to the eyewitness for the report.
