UFO sighting Springfield Queensland Australia.

As I was having a breath of fresh evening air on the veranda I suddenly turned my head to the right to watch a bright orange object fall slowly from the sky. At first glance it appeared to be a hot air ballon in flames falling slowly as its long projected flame consumed the dark sky less than half a killometer from my view point.I shouted to my daughter and Wife ,"Come and see A UFO!" For another moment I thought it was a crashing space craft.Then all of a sudden it stopped falling and seemed to hover . By this time my daughter and wife were standing beside me. Then the oject reformed itself into a star of david like gleeming light still bright orange in colour. "Its Coming toward us" I said. then it turned round and headed in a westerly direction . I rushed inside the house and grabbed my binoculars and telescope and traced the progress of the ufo till it faded out of sight over the horizon. The duration of sighting was about 5-10 minutes. The actual Reading on the compass was 290 degrees in which the object headed till it was out of sight. The object was totally silent.

This was our second UFO sighting the last being in December 1999 Southwest Rocks New South Wales. Australia where twenty or so people observed a similar object.
