Gold Coast, 26 February 2009, 10:50pm

I live in the hinterland of the Gold Coast, in a suburb called Bonogin. It was 10.50pm, and I just got into bed. Before getting comfortable, I realized I needed more airflow and wanted to make sure my windows were open. I got up and was opening one of my windows when I noticed a bright green flash in the sky above the tree line of a hill. I looked directly at the light and was amazed at the intensity of the colour. It only last for a fraction of a second before vanishing completely. The flash was quite large (approximately the size of a 50 cent piece) considering the distance from me (that I can only estimate to be at least a kilometre). So here I am standing at my window, perplexed, unaware of what I just saw. I ended up standing there for at least another minute looking into the sky where this light had been only moments before. I failed to see anything else and I was initially sceptical that my eyes were playing tricks on me. Part of me was thinking it could have been lighting, however logically it didn’t add up. It couldn’t have been lightning for several reasons; a) it was a clear night b) it was bright green and c) it was circular in shape.
