I wish to report the sighting of a bright orange light in the sky at Warner Queensland at approximately 11.50pm 29 September 2011. The object travelled from south to north for about eight minutes, getting dimmer. I called my son to see it too, and he said he thought it was just a very bright (and silent) aircraft. But it had no other lights, such as flashing red or green navigation lights or landing lights you would expect to see at this close range, I disagree but he can a least confirm the sighting. I believe it was not helicopter as it was relatively close yet silent. It was significantly brighter than the aircraft with landing lights we see going to Brisbane airport and which regularly fly over our house.

We both had time to observe it through my 15×70 binoculars and no other lights could be seen with these. This very bright object did not follow normal routes of aircraft landing or taking off, which is why I first noticed it through the almost closed blinds from our lounge room window.

I only report this sighting today as I saw a similar bright orange but stationary light in the SSE sky on a semi-cloudy night about two months ago at around 10.45pm (the first such object I have ever seen in my life) which I did not report. The object was so bright it illuminated the surrounding clouds it silently hovered in.
