Wow that pretty well described what i saw... i just looked out my window to remember where is saw it and it was very high in the sky... also when i
say cross shaped i mean it looked like it may have had a long body and a short peice off the side towards the middle.. either on one side or both i
cant really recall.. all i remember is thinking that it was way too easy to make out the shape to be a sattellite.
I will also tell you about my other ufo sighting which i cannot explain.. maybe you can also shed some light on it!
I was at the time living in a town called Renmark in South Australia... we lived on a cliff around 50-65 metres above sea level and the verandah faced
out towards the skyline. It is a town in the middle of nowhere and therefore ZERO light pollution!
At around 7.40 Daylight saving time as the sun was starting to set.. around dusk but with alot of light... i saw what i immediately thought was a
flare shot off from the bush.
It caught my eye and seemed to appear from thin air..
It was Bright BRIGHT LED Colour Green Light.... which made ZERO sound!!!!
I saw it coming from the right and appeared at our eye level at 60 metres or so.
It slowed down as it came in front of us and then accelerated exponentially away from us too our left until it dematerialised!
I was so shocked and so was my dad... we had neither had anything to drink or smoke!
My dad was so shaken up that he called the airforce and mad a ufo report.. may i add he was usually sceptical!
The other observations i made where that i think it was the size of a car and only a few hundred metres away! My dad however thought it was alot
further away then me!
He is a builder so maybe his depth perception is better then mine!
Another thing is that it only lasted around 5 seconds at the most! it appeared out of nowhere... slowed down and then accelerated till it
my opinions about things have changed since that day and i still just cant understand what it was!
Swamp Gas? lol
or St Elmos fire something like that!
I do know that the surrounding area and alot of S.Australia ufo spottings are light based and not disk shaped! so any ideas or similar sightings..
Thanks for the help guys!
