Witness: MR. A
Number of witnesses present: 1
Sighting Duration: 3.5 to 4 minutes
Occupation: Bakery Assistant
Observation: Walking into the centre of Mount Gambier with several friends early in the morning, I noticed a bright orange light, comparable to a street light, moving in a westerly direction over Mount Gambier. I brought this to the attention of the 3 friends I was with, all of whom also witnessed the light. Initially the light maintained a steady velocity, then began to slow and appeared to hover. At this point, the light appeared to move south slightly, then north, travelling only just faster than a hover. It again came to a halt and appeared to hover, then the light's intensity appeared to diminish. Its brightness fluctuated for several moments before completely fading away. The light traversed open sky initially, and after that under dense cloud cover.
Description: Relatively smooth movements, no observable shape (other than the appearance of an orange street light) and nil audible sound. I initially believed the light to be from an aircraft, until it came closer and no other lights were visible (e.g.. nav lights, beacons, strobes etc.)
