Location: Sydney (NSW, Australia),
Shape: Light
Duration:15-20 seconds
intense white object....like a shining star but slowly moving across the sky. Smaller than a 747 plane.

I woke up at about 7.00am on saturday morning and as was laying in my bed I looked out my window I saw small glowing white ball slowly moving from a northerly to southerly direction in the sky.

Its strange because I live close to the airport and the object i saw wasn't following the same flight path as the other planes and no planes followed that path after I saw it because I waited 30 mins after too see if any other planes followed that flight path an none did, they were coming in the opposite direction south to north.

And I usually hear the planes as they take off and land,and they are easy to identify because they are noisy and low to the ground....but this thing made no noise,and was much too high in the air to have just taken off from Sydney Airport.

And it was a really intense white light,which made me take notice of it. Also the sun was already up and all the planes that were landing weren't using their navigation lights as it was daytime.

As I saw it pass behind our tree at the front of our house it just disappeared. And it couldn't have been a plane coming directly at me as it moved horizontally across the sky continuosly glowing (no blinking of lights like an airplane - just an intense glowing white light), and I would have seen the tail and the shape of the plane as well.
