Name: Grace & mum
Sighting Duration: 15 minutes
Observation: I walked out on to my back veranda for a smoke, sat down in a chair with my back towards the sun. I looked up and saw what looked like a very bright star. I called to mum to come out and look. Mum grab the binoculars mum said it looked like round pea through the Binoculars. When I looked it kinda changed shape to a half circle with something hanging down but still attached. The object appeared solid as couldn't see through it.
The object just glided slowly out of sight in a north easterly direction over Mountain range at the back of us. Mum had to go to work but I watched it for over 15 minutes.
