AUFORN Sighting Form Report
05.10.10 KEILOR (WA) 23:30hrs
Source: AUFORN ONLINE UFO Report Form
Witness: Mr. Daniel
Number of witnesses present: 1
Sighting Duration: 10 minutes.
Observation: We saw what appeared to be a fireball in the sky approaching from the west - it was shimmering as if it was on fire - there were no flashing lights, nothing that identified it as a plane (as we live close to Melbourne Airport) and there was no sound whatsoever. At first we thought it might be a meteor - but it was moving much too slowly - then we thought the solar panel reflection from a satellite as its speed seemed steady and its trajectory did not alter - initially. After a short period, it began to change course slowly going in a north easterly direction. At one point, it appeared that the fireball hovered and then very slowly moved off.
In terms of its intensity, I would probably say that it was brighter than venus in the night sky. Having lived close to the airport and seeing planes on approach, etc. I can say without a doubt that it wasn't a plane... My wife witnessed it too. Description:The best way of describing it was like a fireball - it had a fire colour to it. There was no sound and although initially its course was similar to saltellites and a consistent speed it did eventually change course and speed.
Apparent Size: Pea-Sized
Actual Size: Impossible to define
Altitude: cloud height as after travelling in the north east direction it eventually disappeared behind clouds - I'm not sure what the cloud ceiling was last night at Melbourne airport around 11:30pm.
Object Origin: It came from the north west and travelled to the north east after moving through a smooth parabolic curve.
Object Destination: north east behind clouds.
Moon Visible: No, the moon was not visible.
Planets Visible: some stars - it was partly cloudy.
Weather Visibility: Clear, Mild, Cloudy, Calm.
Weather Comments: It was mostly clear with high level cloud in the north east.
