Dear Diane thanks for the email. following is an account of what we saw. I am a medical scientist and my partner is a builder. I have never been so terrified in my whole life, as we watched we felt amazingly insignificant!

Shorncliffe Brisbane QLD UFO sighting
Sunday 11th May 2003
Time 0052 Second appearance 0112

Sighted in northwest sky from Shorncliffe residence front bedroom window, Brisbane.qld

We live in a renovated Queenslander with the front bedroom facing north.

The bay window in the front has yet to be rebuilt so at night, it is necessary to remove the whole sash window and stand it against the wall.

This means we look out with nothing between us and the outside.

We often see planes travelling south east on approach to Brisbane Airport so initially we thought this was a plane.

It was very large compared to planes we see, probably 3 or 4 times as big although it was hard to determine as it was essentially a mass of orange light hovering in the sky. We suspect it was maybe somewhere over Strathpine or Petrie.

It’s hovering drew our attention to it.

As we watched, it dropped part of it or something which was the same bright orange colour. Whatever it was, dropped vertically, but relatively slowly, till we lost sight of it behind the tree line near our house. What ever it dropped maintained the same appearance from the time it was dropped till we lost sight of it.

It repeated this two more times.
As these drops happened, it seemed to get noticeably smaller. It then flashed on and off 2 or 3 times and simply disappeared.

Exactly 20 minutes later it reappeared in exactly the same place, repeated the dropping only once.

Again it flashed a couple of times and disappeared.

We contacted the National Security hotline and filed a report and were told by them to ring the police, which we did. We have heard nothing from anyone.
