UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Bentleigh, Melbourne, Australia
Date: 10/02/2007 21:48 hrs eastern standard time
Approach Direction: From stationary
Departure Direction: South east
Witness Direction: East
Description: My finace and two sons (aged 7 and 10) were walking along our driveway towards our house when a blue glow lit up the area around us, including the sky, which caused me to look up towards the source. It was a stationary object in the sky which appeared to be oval. As soon as I looked towards it, it took off in a south eastern direction at such a speed which no human machine is capable of doing. It left a trail similar in appearance to a vapour trail for approximately a 15 degree arc across the horizon which was bright blue in colour. The trail faded gradually over several seconds. The whole event took no more than 5 seconds.
Color/Shape: Could not see the shape clearly as it was inside a brightly glowing haze. From what I could make out, it was like a skinny oval.
Height & Speed: The object lit up and then travelled at such a speed that I have never seen in human machines.
TV/Radio/Press: I have not reported it nor have I heard anything yet, as I just came inside and reported the incident on the internet.
UFOINFO Note: There is a report of a meteor burning up in the atmosphere - see http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,21985,22523139-661,00.html (Report now seems to have been removed)
My thanks to the AUFORN mailing list for the information.
