Kangaroo Ground Victoria, Australia Oval Shaped Green Streaking Object
Date: October 12, 2008
Time: 5.25 a.m.
Location of Sighting: Kangaroo Ground, VIC
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Oval with comet tail
Full Description of event/sighting: We were returning home from a cancelled early morning balloon flight in the Yarra Valley. The sighting took place as we progressed towards Eltham on the road passing through Kangaroo Ground.
Conditions were perfectly clear skies (although windy), in a rural 80 km/h area, with no street lighting. My wife and I were driving within the speed limit and were both suddenly aware of a beautiful oval shaped, transparent green streak of light that was travelling at high speed in a diagonal trajectory towards the fields next to our car (on the driver side).
The shape was briefly identified (about 10-20 seconds) as an oval of about 3 feet (1 metre) in length, coated in a soft green shroud of swirling gases and light, with a long thin tracer tail of vapour (similar to a comet). It was hard to see if the object was a rock/meteorite, foreign craft or a piece of \'space rubbish\' burning up as it headed to earth. The object was barely metres from our vehicle (a black family sedan car). There were no vehicle in my rear view mirror or in front of us at the time of the sighting.
There was no opportunity to pursue the object as no safe area to stop and change our course/observe the event further. We did not witness any further lights or see/hear any explosion on impact etc.
Thank you to the witness for their report.
