UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Redfern, Sydney, Australia
Date: 1st October 2006 - Approx 7pm
Approach Direction: North West
Departure Direction: South West
Witness Direction: West
Description: I was standing on a second story balcony in Redfern, Sydney facing in a north west direction. The sky was bright and clear, stars out, no moon however loads of city lights including nearby grand final glow.
I was looking towards the west when a very large, intense, dense, egg shaped fireball appeared, travelling south. At first I thought it may be a plane or a blimp however it was too far away and too big I could see massive flames licking off the end. There was nothing falling from it, no debris, no explosion. It looked completely contained. Not sure how far away maybe a few kms.
The mass continued to move in a southerly direction. I looked around to see if anyone else was seeing it 3 people a few doors down, standing on the street were, and were equally as stunned by what they were witnessing!
After travelling quite a distance over maybe 2 minutes the ball suddenly and almost instantly reduced to the size of a star. It flashed red subtly a couple of times and was then back to it s original fiery size again. For another couple of seconds it remained stationary and then again instantly reduced in size and then disappeared to nothing and was gone.
There is a similar post on your site however the last half of the sighting is different. That sighting was from south of the airport where as I was north of it.
Color/Shape: Hot fiery orange - massive flames visible however they were not travelling far from the mass
Height & Speed: Maybe 2kms? maybe a bit faster than an aeroplane.
