UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Bankstown/Georges Hall/Sydney/NSW/Australia
Date: 10/01/2006 7.15PM/19.15 Local Australian Eastern Standard Time
Approach Direction: North
Departure Direction: West
Witness Direction: East
Description: I was sitting outside on the back porch when I noticed an extremely bright orange glow over the roof. I called my Mother outside to have a look. From over the roof came a bright orange object engulfed in flames. It came from the North and went in a semi-circle around to the South/West. As it was going around, the flames went out for a few seconds, then appeared again for about 2 or so seconds then went out, but not completely. We noticed what appeared to be two small lights on either end. As it headed West, we ran out to the front of the house but it had disappeared from view.
Color/Shape: Extremely bright orange, it looked like it was on fire. Long, oval shape.
Height & Speed: I am unsure how far away it was, but it was so bright that it looked like it was quite close. I estimate that from the time I saw the orange glow, to when it disappeared from view, was approximately 10 - 20 seconds.
