Report taken from the AUFORN Mailing List
The Australian UFO Research Network
Followup on CALL IN CODE 02873
Date: 5th March 2003.
Location: O'SULLIVAN BEACH South Australia (near the boat-ramp)
Sighting: on 5.3.03 (a week after an exact same sighting was reported to local paper)
Time: 10.30 - 11.00pm
Duration: Approx 15 seconds to traverse entire sky N.N West to S.S. West.
Object: Star like, bright strobing light, slightly larger than the regular satellite or star.
Bright intermittent flashes of light on for a second off for about 4 second and then would reappear above or below last position some distance away.
Movement: Jagged line but very fast unlike a satellite or aircraft.
Trajectory: At about 40° off Horizon way out to sea. Moved across the night sky with erratic movement along a NNW to SSW path.
Conditions: Clear, warm night. Very clear view of the night sky. No cloud.
Reportee: Ann and her daughter
Ann had gone outside to sit and have a coffee on the western side of their beach front home when she noticed a bright flash of white light out to sea and above the water on the horizon.
This was then followed a few seconds later by another flash and so on until the object disappeared after about 15 seconds.
Ann called her 16-year-old daughter who also saw this. It was too fast for a plane and too close for a satellite.
She also brought up an event 20 years earlier on the south coast of SA when she and a friend witnessed a large triangular shaped object, defined by a row of red lights down each "wing" at Cape Jervis. This un-nerved them enough to go straight home.
