Ellen Grove, Brisbane, mid-1994 [reported August 2007]

This happened in June or July 1994 at 6.00pm during the school holidays. I was 17 nearly, and it was either a Friday or a Tuesday. I remember because I had cracked my ankle and was at the kitchen sink getting a drink of water when I looked out the window and was looking to the west. Anyway, the sun was going down and I saw a cloud, but there was this really bright star (at least that’s what I thought it was). I stared at it for ages. It was like I knew that it knew that I was watching it. I knew it was not a star because no other stars were out yet — because it was not dark enough! Not only that but it looked like it was in front of that cloud. Anyway I stared at for a good 10 minutes, and the sky was getting darker. I looked away for half a second to make sure the cup was under the sink and BAM the bright light was gone! Weird! It never moved at all, it shone the same brightness, there was a huge clearing so it didn’t just move behind a tree since the trees were way too far apart for it to hide behind in half a second! But the feeling I had while watching it, it was like I knew what it was. and it was like it knew I was watching it, and it was like it was waiting for me to look away to disappear. I remember it like it was yesterday! It was 6.00pm when I started to stare at it, but it wasn’t until 6:30pm when I walked out of the kitchen onto the balcony to see if I could see it somewhere after it disappeared. Maybe I did stare at it for half an hour, I do remember looking at the clock before I went to the sink and after I left the sink to see where the light had gone though, and those are the two times that remained in my head after all this time. That’s another thing — as the time went by the star never moved at all, even though all the other stars that came out into the night moved in that amount of time, this one never moved.
