UFOINFO Online Sighting Report
Location: Townsville, QLD, Australia
Time: 8pm - 9pm (for about 3 minutes)
Number of witnesses: 6
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Indistinguishable, it was a very bright, flashing blue light.
Could your sighting be a UFO balloon/lantern?: No
Weather Conditions: Fine, light winds, some cloud cover
Description: Bright blue light sighted passing from south to north from a balcony facing the radio towers in Townsville. The light performed a sweeping loop near Castle Hill, before travelling quite fast in a northerly direction. It would be erratic and perform huge dips. It was almost as bright as Venus and was flashing blue. It would occasionally go behind low lying clouds.
It was in view for about 3 minutes before dipping towards the horizon and behind the ground lights. It almost looked as if it was travelling on the winds and falling through air pockets, but it was far too big to be so susceptible to that.
