Location: Capricorn Coast (Australia),
|A super bright, sharp, red light travelled at supersonic speeds around a tropical storm cell, in Australia.
At the time I was 14yrs of age, but I will never forget.
While on vacation with my family on the Capricorn Coast west of Rockhampton in Australia, we were preparing for bed when a severe electrical storm was brewing from the west so we decided to stay up and watch it.
The storm core missed us to the north by a few miles, and the lightning show took the stage until my sister pointed out a red light in amongst the clouds. It was a pin-point super bright laser like light source, it was so small it seemed to have no body. It was so bright the surrounding clouds glowed the same color.
The light moved very fast in all directions as it weaved in and out of the clouds, all turns it made were smooth but way to fast for any aircraft. The THING made no noise at all. It's altitude seem to vary from the ceiling of the storm cell to almost sea level, this lasted for approximately 10mins and seemed to move with the storm.
My father/mother/sister and both my parents friends witnessed it. No report on the next days news.
