UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Preston, Melbourne, Australia
Date: October 20 2009
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Appeared the same size as the light a distant aircraft would make. Could not discern shape.
Weather Conditions: Light wind and clear (no clouds).
Description: We witnessed an object the size of a distant aircraft, emitting a fairly bright light, move across the sky from SW to NE about 45-60 degrees above the horizon. The object initially caught our eye because it didn't have the hallmarks or an aircraft (e.g. no flashing lights and the flight path was very unusual for our location).
As we watched the object move (at a uniform speed and trajectory), its light began to fade. After approximately 10 seconds it was no longer visible.
Could this be the International Space Station?
UFOINFO Note: According to the coordinates (37.4900°S, 144.5800°E) I put in at the Heavens Above website the International Space Station was visible over Melbourne from 20:55:19 to 20:57:56
