Location: Brisbane (Queensland, Australia),
Shape: Light
Duration:1-1.5 hours
Object moving at impossible speed and coming to a dead stop while two other objects are also seen.

My wife and I went to take the dog for his usual last walk before bedtime. We came out of the front door and just got to the end of our driveway. I mostly always have a look at the night sky over Brisbane and the stars because it is so clear all the time. I looked up and my eye was immediately caught by a bright light moving upwards and to the left at speed. I tracked the object as it moved and the light became less bright as it ascended upwards. Then it faded into a mere speck of light but stayed completely still again.

The object was about 65 degrees and was white in colour.

I then watched as it got brighter again and looked as if it was on it's way back down again. It then moved down and to the right at an incomprehensible speed covering a significant distance in an instant, before coming to an abrupt dead stop (not a controlled gradual slowdown).

I told my wife what I'd seen and together we watched the object go bright and then fade and then go bright again, all the time it darted from side to side, up and down in a series of eratic instant movements.

We watched it from 10.30pm until 11.20 It stayed there until at least midnight, after that we went to bed.

My wife went inside complaining of a sore neck after watching this thing for 50 minutes. I looked around the sky and seen another object which was around 30 degrees this time. It was orange coloured and much closer I guessed since the light was bigger and far more noticeable. It too was getting bright, then getting faded again and was engaging in the same sort of eratic dancing manouveres as the first object.

This time I had a good point of reference. There was a telegraph pole to the left of the object and I stood watching from a fixed position while the object disappeared behind my line of sight behind the telegraph pole and then re-emerged again. It also moved up and down some estimated 10 degrees in altitude all throughout the time we watched it.

A third smaller light could be seen in a different portion of the sky. It too had the same charectaristics of the other two and I also had a palm tree as a point of reference. It moved slowly but significantly to the left of the palm tree over an hour long period.
