3rd of June 2006, at 17:45, location Q,L,,D Australia Cairns Table lands Yungaburra, Oval shape, Photos taken of objects in the sky

Taking photos of sunset at approx 5:45pm facing North west direction with a Casio Digital camera 5.0 mega Pixels. Took 3 photo's that point in the same direction trying to get the best shot. There is a mountain which is apart of the 7 sisters which I was informed were volcanic. I was using this mountain in my photos for the effect and it is approx 1-2 km away.

With the last photo taken, I looked into the Veiw Finder and saw an object that appeared to glow and an oval shape with a dome on the top. When I took the photo I did see a object move but by the time I looked up after taking the photo no objects were seen. No Noise was noted during the time of taking the photographs and the day was clear of cloud cover with no wind. ( small amount of clound at the base of the mountain) I showed the phtotgraph to my Wife and then also to the people who owned the accomadation we stayed at the following day.

I develpoed the photo's that I took the next day and came aware that with each photo I took there were objects in each frame. The second photo I took has 3 objects heading sky wards which are also oval shape and have a metalic look about them. They seem to be following each other back up towards the sky from the mountain.

Also another 3 in the same photo which are higher in the sky and have a different shape which is hard to explain. There is also another few objects that you can see when you zoom into the photo, and I do not recall seeing any stars at that time of day.
