Redland Bay, August 4, 5, 6, 2005

Hi there, I’d like to report a sighting over three nights, roughly about the same time each night. The first night was August 4 2005 GMT+10 2:30am. Saw it coming from Stradbroke Island, a small orange sphere in the sky. I first thought it was a star but noticed there was no flickering like the other stars. It had mostly been static, then suddenly moved with great speed in short distances with a zigzag motion. This blew me away. I was having a smoke outside and watched it for about ten minutes then went back inside.

The second sighting was at 3am on the 5th of August 2005. The orange light in the sky was there again, moving in the same way as spotted on the 4th of August.

The third sighting was at 2:35am on the 6th, pretty much in the same position in the atmosphere. I am in Redland Bay and can see Stradbroke Island from my backyard. It would have been pretty much directly above, maybe a little towards Stradbroke. This time I grabbed my Sony Hi-8 handycam and recorded a couple of minutes of video. My hands are pretty shaky in the video as it was pretty cold outside, and the handycam is pretty heavy. With it zoomed to the max stability is an issue.
