Location: Bathurst (Australia),
Shape: Rectangle
Duration:Less than 30 seconds
Medium paced object moving accross the sky with a constant length trail of light following behind it and the UFO eventually dissapears.

It was nightime and I had walked outside to go and feed my dog and I walked into the shed and for some reason decided to turn the floodlight on (the floodlight was behind me) and after I turned on the floodlight I gazed out across our property whilst leaning against the frame of the roller door and about 10 seconds later a most unusual object flew in from the left from behind the shed and it was about a quarter of the way up in the sky and was moving horizontally and a perfectly horizontal semi transparent trail of light which kept it's length was following behind it and the UFO appeared to be rectangular and a single white light was on the upper half of it (I was too mesmerized by the trail of light) and as it was heading towards the tree in front of me which was slightly to my right I could literally see it start to disappear as it was moving behind the branches and when it went behind the trunk of the tree it didn't come out the other side which I could hardly believe and then about 20 seconds later two aircraft came from the same direction as the UFO and the first one sounded like a passenger plane or possibly a Hercules plane and the second one sounded like a small two seater plane and I'm sure that the pilots no doubt saw this event as well.
