Activity seen: The first object sighted first travelling due south on a horizontal trajectory.

Object moving slowly. Watched for over _ hr. The object then moved further away whilst it made irregular "fishtale" and horizontal movements. A second much brighter object was sighted travelling from the south west towards the first object. Moving "faster than a plane".

Reportee noted that this object radiated a huge amount of light. ( almost irregular as if in rotation) A few minutes after nearing the first object, the second object then "went back whence it came" , ascended and accelerated quickly and then the object disappeared.

The "first" object ascended and disappeared at a slower pace.

The time was approx. 9:15pm.
Weather conditions: Clear night

Additional Info: The sighting was witnessed by David and his son (9 years of age) in the backyard of their property. The night in question was Australia Day and after investigation, fireworks and flares as a cause have been excluded (due to the time/ location and air traffic/ police information).

This was the second sighting of something unusual in the sky for this reportee. David told me how he had an experience in a country town of Sorell in Tasmania, whilst walking with his young uncle at age 10 or 11.

He remembered walking over a bridge with his uncle and looking up in the sky to see an oval shaped object directly above them.

He reports that this craft had multi coloured lights and was about two car lengths long. It struck the boys as very scary and they ran back to where they were staying and told the adults.

He had reported the incident to TUFORIC a few years ago. Telephone interview 27/01/04 @ 5:30pm
