Jo rang to report what she called a "spectacular sighting", estimated to be near the Richmond air base. "I was travelling West at 4:45 pm on the Tuesday, the 20th of July. Whilst joining the western motorways near the Toll from Parramatta road, her attention was drawn by a sudden flash in the sky. Although Jo lives near Nowra, she travels to the Children's hospital in Sydney's eastern suburbs weekly. "A big flash to the right of a cloud bank caught my eyes and I found myself having to pull over or crash the car through staring into the sky!" Jo says it was still very light at that time of the evening, not many clouds, and a huge burst of light was easy to see even in the sunset sky. Jo described a strobing effect, blindingly bright, "as large as moon in the sky, which then contracted." Where she pulled over, a lot of people were looking at the same thing at the Lighthorse interchange. Jo said that two lines of smoke began to plume behind as it fell, but that it did not fall so rapidly as to suggest it was beyond control. The whole fall to earth took at least 40 seconds. "This was definitely not a star, and the object was in the atmosphere". Jo then saw something else. "Two jets took off; one went to the extreme left and the other came from the right, observing or intercepting. No way was it a plane".
Jo described the scrambled jets as "F-18 style. The object was erratic in the way it fell and I got the impression that it was trying to slow its descent. Then there was a second flash. No noise was heard above the Parramatta on-ramp traffic noise.
Another weird thing happened on the way home, at around Kramer, on south coast. "This green star thing was hanging low over Kramer. It was burning a kind of phosphorescent colour glowing from the inside. It was definitely larger than Venus in the sky. I got home and saw a green glow in that direction. It was a bit strange!"
Passing Berri, Jo saw something else bright flash above the tree line, and something buzzed the car.
"All this in one day!"
