Cheryl was getting ready for bed at 1.40 a.m; she went over to the bedroom window to pull the curtains across when she saw a strange object outside her bedroom window. The object was in a westerly direction, approximately 45-degrees from the horizon. She thinks the object was close to the house. The object was approximately the size of the moon and whitish in colour. She grabbed her binoculars to have a closer look at the object. Viewing the object through the binoculars she described it as being orange in colour and appeared to have flames or flares coming out from it. She went outside to have a closer look at the object, it moved very slowly in a westerly direction for approximately 20 minutes before disappearing behind a large tree. The object appeared to make no sound. She thinks it would have travelled only 80 metres in that time.
Approximately 15-20 minutes after the object disappeared behind the tree Cheryl believes she saw the same object again but much smaller. She thinks it appeared smaller because it was further away. The object shot of at a great speed, faster than anything she has ever seen before to the west and was out of sight within 5-6 seconds. The object had a stream of light around it as it was moving at that incredible speed. Cheryl thought it headed in the direction of Anzac Highway towards the Adelaide Airport.
The next day Cheryl contacted the Public Relations Department at the Adelaide Airport to enquire if they could explain the sighting she had witnessed. She was not very trusting of them so she gave the wrong time of the sighting (done deliberately). They informed her at that time a helicopter had left Adelaide Airport heading to a medical situation and that is what she would have seen. She knew then it was not the helicopter that she had witnessed as she had given them a different time to the actual sighting. And living in Adelaide there is a curfew of all aircraft (excluding energy aircrafts) at the time the object was sighted.
Cheryl said that she has witnessed other UFO sighting in her life but did not want to discuss them.
