"I was walking home late at night with my doggie when I looked up to the stars as usual. We were in a small country town and it was a calm, but cold winters night. Suddenly I noticed a light in the sky hovering above the hill to the right of me. It was a bright light (much like a star) but was not a star. It was quite low. I thought to myself how strange but continued on my way home and after being indoors for a few moments I couldn't stop thinking about it.
I ventured back down the road to a clearing (where the guys played cricket) and the light was still overhead but seemed to have moved slightly to the left of where I had first seen it. I watched it for a while, wondering what on earth was I looking at.......... then down the road came my doggie following me. I was distracted by him for a few moments and when I looked up the object in the sky had disappeared.
We never saw it again and it was never mentioned by anyone else in the town .......... still don't know what it was but it was certainly something that had never been there before. I heard no noise from it but it was very bright. The dog and I walked home again and I couldn't stop thinking about it all the next week. Don't know what it was and I suppose I never will. "
