Number of witnesses present: 2
Sighting Duration: 4 to 5 minutes
Observation: Myself and my late husband went outside for a smoke ,we noticed a light that was brighter than usual it stood out we were used to looking at the sky we loved spotting satellites. After a while the 'light' grew in size, I would say a bread and butter plate at arms length. The object then seemed to fade out, like a torch running out of power. I rang the Forster Police and told them what we where seeing we were worried that it may have been a flare as we had a view out over the ocean, they asked for general directions and said they would take a look. The Policeman asked me if I wanted to report a u.f.o I said I guess so, as it was an unidentified object in the sky. It was also spotted at Kempsey. 1 week prior a video was taken, news item.
