Source: AUFORN ONLINE UFO Report Form
Witness: Mr. H
Number of witnesses present: 3 - Wife & daughter
Sighting Duration: 5 minutes.
Occupation: Telecommunications and Safety trainer.
Observation: I observed a bright orange light out of my window which I initially thought was Mars but more orange and larger than Id ever seen before. I went outside it was slightly larger than the largest star in the sky, but it was orange. It was very high. I couldn't see it any clearer with 10 power binoculars. During my observation of it a small plane flew between it and us (not directly though). It was much higher than the plane. It was initially moving very slowly from west to south at about 45 - 50 degrees off the horizon. It occasionally appeared to move a short distance very quickly. It eventually became stationary at about 1 and a half hand span west of Celestial South pole. Its brightness/size varied erratically, occasionally there were glimpses of red. After about 5 minutes, in the space of 30 seconds its angle got higher, and it got smaller to the point where it disappeared. I tried to film it but my video couldn't pick it up.
Apparent Size: Pea-Sized.
Actual Size: Very hard to say, it was bright and high. It could have been the size of a car...
Object Origin: West.
Planets Visible: Yes, Clear.
