i live on the Gold Coast in Queensland Australia and witnessed this most freakish sighting this morning( 4 hours ago..).
i am not a UFO poster, but come to ATS for its angle on Current Affairs etc...
I work outside and started at 5 am this morning(I work at Dreamworld for the Aussies reading this, in Coomera)...at 5.52am ( I checked) I saw the
Aussie version of the Norway Spiral..a large spiral( not helix) moving from south to East and out to sea. It had no sound.My colleague and I stood
flabbergasted as this thing passed across the sky.The whole event took perhaps(as reported..) about 2-3 minutes. Half way thru its path it changed
from spiral to elongated in shape, like a very thin ellipse..
throughout the time the "object" appeared to have a mist (ala Norway) in front of it which softened the light slightly. As the object morphed into
the "ellipse" the "mist" changed into a sort of "smoke ring" which surrounded the object. It headed in the direction of the soft orange glow of
the sun which was about to rise....interestingly, I immediately noted that other stars in the sky were 100% visible....I do not believe the "mist"
was from clouds...most strange!!
I am not a crackpot, I have nothing to gain by lying here...this is what I saw...
Of course, like others that have sighted this around the World, I have no explanation.
During the sighting I tried to not be over-awed, instead trying to be critical in my thinking( hence the time check etc)..conclusion??Maybe not
"other worldly", but definately some form of hitherto unknown flying craft.
The path of the "thing" was horizontal, not falling to earth in its trajectory.
Byron Bay( as sen on above video) is about 45 minutes by car...
The odd thing is the sightings all seem to be at the same time.A woman in Sydney said she saw it at 5.55am, approx. the same time I did, and yet
Sydney is 1000 km away...does this indicate how BIG this thing was??
