Investigator : Given to: Colin Paul for follow up.
About 12.50 a.m. today heard a helicopter outside. Went outside and saw this big orange bright ball. Went to ring radio station who had notified the police, who said they'd heard nothing. Wasn't the moon etc.
Follow up - thanks to Colin Paul
Craig was up late, he had already heard the sound of a helicopter going over his house and had seen red lights of it about 15-30mins earlier.
But, he noticed that there still was a light that seemed to be over his house, but this time with no noise, so he decided to go outside and investigate.
He went outside and approx 200 feet up, moving slowly over houses was a orange/red colour light about the size of a 'tractor tyre'. He stated that the object was bigger than the moon that was out that night.
He quickly went inside and grabbed his binoculars. Due to his excitement, he was unable to keep his hands steady enough, so when he viewed the object through his binoculars, he was only able to get a fuzzy view of the object.
He continued to watch it move towards St. Bernards Road, and then onwards towards North Adelaide.
During the time of his observation, Craig noted that there was no sound and the object moved at a slow but steady pace.
Thanks to Colin Paul for this follow up.
