Australia astronomer David Reneke is confounded by the footage of a UFO taken by Durras surfer Ben Roberts.
“I don’t know what to make of it,” he said.
“At first I was sure it was Venus, because it was in the area in the sky at the time, but the way it moves in the last five to 10 seconds is strange stuff. Unless the film has been sped up it has me puzzled.”
Mr Reneke said that Venus was responsible for most sightings across the world, and can be “quite brilliant”.
However, he also brought some aspects of the footage into question.
“In the end it pans left and there is a very bright sunrise, whereas before it was pitch black,” he said.

To me, it looks like a plane and the guy who filmed it clearly has no idea about what he's talking about when he says it's "under the clouds".

I want to say satellite as it's coloration would be consistent with reflected sunlight off the satellite body and solar panels.
If this were a satellite, however, it seems to move too slow.
In such case I'm then prone to feel this is a very distant plane experiencing the same effect consistent with satellites where the plane is in direct sunlight and reflecting that golden morning dawn light where the observers on the ground are still in pre-dawn shadow.
The videographer obviously doesn't know anything as he goes straight from star to UFO in his guessing without any vocal consideration of satellites, or distant airplanes reflecting dawn light.
