They are visible for extended periods of times (days, even weeks).
Well thats what i thought.
And if there was a meteor that was that close surely an astronomer would have let us all know about it. It did have a tail but it wasnt huge, like
that of a meteor but only taking approx 15 seconds to cover the sky before passing behind trees.
The only things i can think of so far to dismiss it being a UFO is that it was either the ISS close to our atmosphere and playing a trick on the eye
making it look somewhat bigger that reality (Like sometimes you see the moon and it looks huge) or it was something millitary from the RAAF base that
is about 40km away.
But that also brings me back to:
If it was the ISS:
Why did it have a tail?
Why did it only take 15 seconds to cover our patch of sky?
If it was military:
Why would it make itself visible to a beach on new years eve that is quite populated?
Why did it look anti-grav? (No flames, boosters etc.)
Being military it could have well done those speeds, but at the same time i have never seen an egg shaped military craft and i have never seen a
'plane' without noise/flames or something to keep it airborn.
