It was 4am and from our farm we could clearly see a bright, glowing object. I got out the video camera and zoomed right in on the object and to our amazement it showed a glowing sphere with symmetrical markings on it. It was like nothing we had seen before! But it's all on tape now!

We live on a farm on the eastern side of Australia with a great, unobstructed view of the night sky. It was clear summer night with a full moon out. My brother and his girlfriend woke me to look at a large glowing object they had noticed looking out through their bedroom window in the lower eastern part of the night sky. It looked like a normal glowing star but much, much brighter and larger. I laughed saying it was a helicopter or something but they assured me that it had been there for a while. So I went and got my video camera and proceeded to film it. The object looked like a huge glowing ball but when I zoomed in on it you could see a huge sphere like object that was a light cream/grey color with symmetrical patterns on it. This instantly shocked us. You could not see the patterns with your naked eye or even with binoculers, as we tried, but using the zoom on the video camera (it's one of the latest model camera's with a great zoom) was totally amazing, you could see it very well. I kept filming the object and it would glow brightly (white) with green around the edges, then change to red around the edges, then the glowing would subside and the camera was able to pick up the sphere with the patterns on it again. The sphere also moved in and out on the camera screen getting larger and smaller as I stayed still on it. We don't know what it was, but were totally amazed by it! I filmed it for about 40 minutes and it was still there so we went back to bed as I acquired enough footage of it!
