AUFORN Sighting Form Report
03.10.10 FRANKSTON (VIC) 23:30hrs
Source: AUFORN ONLINE UFO Report Form
Witness: Mr. Gareth
Number of witnesses present: 1
Sighting Duration: 10 minutes.
Occupation: Singer / Owner of band
Observation: I was on my balcony having a cigarette and saw what initially looked like a star, out towards the Geelong direction... Probably, around the lights at St Leonards... It was low in the sky, and I noticed it because it was significantly brighter than a star and was blinking and flickering quite a bit.
I then noticed quite a few other objects flickering and flashing in the vicinity. None as bright as the first object I spotted, however. They were all moving around and at one point two of the objects appeared to cross path.
The original object would dim down considerably until it nearly disappeared and then brighten up massively so it looked like a huge fireball, in the distance. At its brightest it would have been 4-5 times brighter and bigger than the brightest star in the sky. Random flickering objects were appearing, in the distance. They appeared much like glitter would up close, but obviously much farther off. The bright object was travelling to the right, and I eventually lost track of it.
Another object was travelling left-right and then appeared to brighten up just like the first one, and when in roughly the same position as when the first one did. I was on the phone the whole time and so did not film it on my phone. It would have been impossible to see on my phone's video as although it's a HD camera, the objects would have been far too distant to show up on the film, in my opinion. By 11.45pm, I could no longer see any of these objects.
Description: A couple of the objects increased in size and brightness as described above. Other's flickered. When at its brightest, the bright object was yellowish like a flame... The other ones flickered and showed the colours of blue and red.
Apparent Size: Pea-Sized
Apparent Size Other: Pea sized at their brightest
Actual Size: No idea. Very hard to guess as distance completely unknown. They appeared to be over the water but that's just a guess.
Altitude: At a guess.... 500m-1000m high?
Object Origin: They were travelling left and right... They were already active when I first spotted them and were over the water in the only water view we have here.
Object Destination: They stayed at the altitude they were originally, the whole time... They travelled left and right mainly... Not up and down...
Moon Visible: The moon was not visible from my vantage point.
Planets Visible: There were the standard stars visible. I have no real knowledge of which are, which so cannot name which stars were visible.
Weather Visibility: Clear, Mild, Calm.
