Duration:3/4minutes
u.f.o. seen at 0015hours e.s.t brisbane australia.craft definately NOT conventional plane/balloon/satellite or a joke.

craft seen in night sky travelling s.e. to n.e. (approx). Height approx 3/5 thousand feeet. moving very fast. craft first seen as an orange glow, first impression was either an aircraft or some kind of firework/sky rocket. image captured on video camera for 1minute 5seconds. zoom was used as the craft was a few kilometers away. zoom enhanced image and shows clearly two clusters of lights both belonging to the same craft. light clusters appear to be "windows" with a large area of black seperating them. there are some lights which blink but these are definately NOT conventional aircraft navigation lights, this has been verified by the local UFO Research group. ( who are also unable to identify the craft and want very much to have a copy of the video )Object was filmed against night sky , however there are stars clearly seen in the background. Object was filmed as it was departing, so video taken is from the rear. I am not sure what you mean by asking for a description of the background/s of the observer/s but I am interpreting that as information about myself.....I am a psychology student..46 years of age and NOT given to lying . I am frustrated at trying to get anyone to take my video and statement seriously...the local tv channel has however, shown some interest but I think their sincerity at discovering the truth about the craft is spurious.I am getting no-where reprting this event here in Australia hence the reason why I am reporting the event to you.
