UFO Sighting Report - Australia
Please note that the reports in this section have been submitted to UFOINFO/UFO ROUNDUP and accepted in good faith. No investigation has been carried out by UFOINFO.
With the increasing use of digital cameras we are seeing more photos showing alleged 'UFOs' - many of these could be insects, cloud shapes etc. As many readers have asked to see the photos I will be using some of them and leaving it up to the individual to make up their own mind - John @ UFOINFO.

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Bexley, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Date: 10/01/06 (1st October) 7.10pm local Australian Eastern Standard Time
Approach Direction: North
Departure Direction: West
Witness Direction: West
Description: I overheard my neighbour saying to look at a "shooting star". I looked towards the western sky, and saw a long object that appeared to be only a few kms away. It was orange, and seemed to be on fire. It moved slowly toward the south for about 10 seconds, and then the "flame" went out, replaced shortly after by a small red flashing light. The flashing light moved towards the west for about 30 seconds and then receded from view, much like a slow airplane. Note that the sighted object appeared to be in the normal western approach flight path to the east-west runway of Sydney airport.
Color/Shape: initially orange, oval shape
Height & Speed: 500 - 1,000 m high, moving slower than an average airplane
