UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Carlton, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
Date: 09/16/2007, 02:28am local time (AEST)
Approach Direction: Did not catch approach
Departure Direction: North, since I did not see any anomalies towards east-west direction
Witness Direction: North
Description: It was an overnight star-gazing session. A few of us were just coming out of the penthouse (5 storeys high) to stretch ourselves. Just as I was turning around to face north, the sky near the horizon between a college spire and another building lit up in bright turquoise colour for a second. At the same moment, witness #2 asked me if I saw the same thing. It looked as if there was lightning behind a bunch of clouds but it was not cloudy, and in turquoise colour. The coverage of the lighted portion of sky was at least 10 degrees across although it could be larger since another building obstructed the rest of the view. I have never seen an event like this before and am seeking answers. Thanks.
Color/Shape: Bright turquoise (greenish blue) light illuminates >10 degrees of sky near horizon. Possible flash or two before disappearing.
Height & Speed: Not sure how far away it is hence I cannot estimate the height but it was pretty near the horizon.
