Location: Sydney (Australia),
Shape: Light
Duration:4 minutes
Bright light moves North to South quickly in the sky over Sydney

I am not exactly sure on the time though, it was around 8:30pm.

I looked up in the sky, and first saw a star, but then I saw that it was moving... so, I watched it a little longer. This light was moving at a very fast rate in a straight line. There were no blinking lights - it was constant and the same brightness. The movement was from North to South and no sound.

We initially thought that it could be a satellite, but then thought since Sydney is far south, there are no other no other big cities than Melbourne so it seemed quite unlikely for a satellite to go North to South.

((NUFORC Note: Satellites "go" almost anywhere their owners want them to go. There are MANY satellites in polar orbit, so they can be seen going either north or south over any part of the planet. PD))
