Hi. I have just been for my evening walk in Australia. I saw something that may or may not have a mundane explanation. I'd appreciate input.
I saw a white light flash once, as bright as a relatively dim star (clearly visible but certainly not as bright as the brightest stars). The flash was
brief (perhaps half a second).
After it flashed, I watched. There was another flash a minimum of 10 seconds later (probably more) in the same region of space, between a fairly
bright star and a dimmer one to its east. Then a third flash in the same region after another 10 + seconds.
Shortly after I saw the third 'flash', in the same region (between the same two stars) there was a streak of light about half to two thirds of a
fingers length with an outstretched arm. By this time, I had oriented my wife to the space. She says there was another streak, the same as the first,
soon after it. I didn't see the second streak.
I watched the area for about ten minutes after this and saw nothing more.
It could easily have been a plane, though I have never seen flashes with such time intervals. It could easily have been a shooting star, except
neither of us thought it quite looked like one and, more importantly, as a statistician, everything tells me the odds of a shooting star occurring in
the same region as a flashing light within a few seconds by chance are very remote. Of course, it could be a coincidence, but I am most intrigued.
Would really appreciate any thoughts.
