OZ File Sighting Report

11.7.04 HOBART, TAS.

Callin Code ñ 3386.
The witness was leaving a friends house on Hobart's Eastern Shore when a bright object was noticed in the western sky. A brilliant red/orange V shape could be seen. It was seemingly moving slowly away and was soon obscured by a nearby hill.
TUFOIC received a number of calls about the same object as did some of the local media. All the sightings were about 17.00 hours with the object losing elevation in the western sky. The witnesses all described a bright white to orange shape like a comet disappearing behind the hills west of Hobart. A time span for the sighting was from a few minutes to nearly 10 minutes.
The Centre believes the report was due to an over
flight of an aircraft from New Zealand to West
Australia. The upper atmosphere would appear to have
been quite dry hence a short vapour trail. The
aircraft would have still been up in the sun whilst
the sun had set in Hobart. The NZ to WA aircraft have
been the stimulus for sightings on previous occasions.
