UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Bexley, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

Date: 10/01/06 (1st October) 7.10pm local Australian Eastern Standard Time

Approach Direction: North

Departure Direction: West

Witness Direction: West

Description: I overheard my neighbour saying to look at a "shooting star". I looked towards the western sky, and saw a long object that appeared to be only a few kms away. It was orange, and seemed to be on fire. It moved slowly toward the south for about 10 seconds, and then the "flame" went out, replaced shortly after by a small red flashing light. The flashing light moved towards the west for about 30 seconds and then receded from view, much like a slow airplane. Note that the sighted object appeared to be in the normal western approach flight path to the east-west runway of Sydney airport.

Color/Shape: initially orange, oval shape

Height & Speed: 500 - 1,000m high, moving slower than an average airplane
