Rockhampton, 1970s-1980s, reported November 2007

I don’t think this is a UFO but is very strange. About 30 years ago in Rockhampton, out on the edge of town, I was driving to collect a family member and had to stop on the crest of a hill to figure out what I was seeing. It was just coming on dusk but from this position I could see for miles over the river and treetops towards Gracemere. It appeared there was a long straight split in the sky about five miles away with a phosphorus ooze coming from it. The length of this “split” had to be considerable for me to see it so clearly. I walked forward of the car and back to see this from different angles. I even climbed up some of the hillside on the other side of the road. The thing that convinced me of the distance was that part of this ooze was blocked by the shape of the end of the Range on the other side of the city. It was too high to be power lines, and if this had looked like it was oozing upward I would have thought it some phosphorus gas from lagoons out that way. I wanted to wait for someone else to come along the road, but had to be on time. Has anyone else reported anything like this? I really do hope so.


Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia
