Observation: standing on front lawn of premises after working at a hotel, I was facing north, & saw an orange cylinder, porous/ceramic/plastic(?) stone looking outer/solid crust,looked unevenly moulded, bright orange, white swirls on outer surface, airborne, approximately twice the distance from roof top of 6,8,10,12,14 & 16 Hennessy avenue residences, cylindrical object of about 2 Tram lengths, no sound, no lights, no windows, no elevation, no deviation & continued from the first moment I had sight from the east, until out of line of sight over the Port Philip bay heading west.

Description: no, none whatsoever.

Location: standing on the front lawn of flat in Hennessy avenue Elwood facing north, main roads of chapel street & nepean highway 200 metres to my right. I was standing alone on the front lawn unwinding from work with an albany cigarette & was consuming my one & only glass of red wine after finding my wife already asleep in bed betwen 12:30 & 1:00 am

Apparent Size: length of two melbourne trams or about 8/10 car lengths. Actual Size: in retrospect, about the same length, width, height, circumferance etc as a diesel locomotive, slightly longer. Altitude: tall tree top height, about 150 feet?

Object Origin: easterly, heading west until disappearing over the horizon towards the bay.

Object Destination: west, over port philip bay from where I was standing.

Moon Visible: 22 years have passed & I can recall the most amazing unknown object I have ever seen on land sea or sky, but I can't recall the moon on that morning.

Planets Visible: yes, but I was somewhat transfixed on something else!

Weather: Clear, Pleasant, Sunny, Calm Weather

Comments: very calm & quiet, minimal traffic noise & perhaps even eerily silent.

Viewing Aids: no.

Effects Physical: no.

Effects Psychological: after the observance I told a few people, quite animatedly until I realised that they did not care as they had not experienced what I had, so therefore did not comprehend & even to the extent of Vulcan hand signals etc, until I responded with a few hand gestures of my own

Effects Other: no.

Effects Other Witnesses: no.

Other Experiences: as a child of 7 or 8 I was with my sister Helen (10), my father,L enny,(50+) looking in a s-west direction, unfortunatley near the Harry Hawker airport (Moorabbin), through my fathers new high powered binoculars that he used at the race track, when all 3 of us saw an orange, (yes porous) diamond shaped object, which then promptly disappeared in less than a second. I thought nothing more of that night until the night of the cylinder sighting.
