Description: My husband and I were watching tv and saw out of the corner of our eye out the window an orange fireball oval type shape. It was moving slowly across towards our backyard. We ran to our back porch where it seemed to hover and a feeling of acknowledgement between it and us was so strong. It kind of changed to show us it was more of a saucer looking aircraft with red lights flashing around it. It kind of took off! It went up 20m or so and actually had a whirling sound. It then shot off into the sky, out though, not up. We stood and watched in disbelief.
We definitely saw a UFO. I have never been a believer, actually the opposite. I tend to think UFO believers are crazy. We had not had a drink hence being australia day, we had instead taken our 3 children to Jambaroo for the day. We do not take drugs or are not on any medication. I called and reported it to Maroubra Police station as i did not know what else to do. We are very interested to talk more about it and would like to know if this UFO was spotted anywhere else.
Color/Shape: Initially an orange fireball colour which changed to a lighter brighter light allowing us to see it more in its form which seemed to be of a saucer aircraft shape (just like the bloody movies!! i cant believe it). It had red lights which spun once it started to take off and shoot into the atmosphere.
Height & Speed: Its so hard to say, a 100 or so meters above. At first it flew quite slow sideways and then it shot off millions of kms in about 10sec.
TV/Radio/Press: I called the Maroubra Police station.
