It takes it's name from one John Quinn, who for very many years was a judge at the New South Wales sheepdog trials and a man of sound common sense.
Quinn claimed that on numerous occasions he saw a strange light of extraordinary brilliance which came floating down the valley amongst the tall timbers, circled his homestead, then made back to its hills.
Quinn described it as a large, yellow orb and said that it illuminated the trees as it passed with a phosphorescent glow. He showed it to others - in case his own testimony should not be believed - and he organized night riders who pursued it, and hunters who shot at the apparition but to no purpose.

How many acres is this paddock that you mention?
And is there a paddock (owned by someone else) next to your paddock?

Do you remember any more details about it? Any extra details, like how it moved, how quickly it moved, did it change direction? Color. Size. Sound. Was it flickery?

the light thing we saw sounds similar in some respects to your own story. Our light was very small and red. I personally think the light is attached to a larger invisible body, hence why it needed to "jump" over the fence rather than go through it. It might be a military drone that is operating in an invisible mode (other than the faint visible light). Any unusual military bases near your location? Have you used "ufomaps" on google earth to lookup similar stories in your area?
