Location: Mollymook (Australia),
Shape: Light
Duration:5 seconds
flickering/shimmering point of light moved accross about 30 degrees @ about 18.00-18.05 EST(Australian)

I am sure it wasn't a UFO, but in the true sense of the word, un-identified flying objet. I am thinking maybe the space station as it is still visible.

I am at co ordinates -35.340499-S 150.468149-E... @ approx. 18.00 (EST Australian) I was looking about S x SSW at a particularly wavering/sparking point of light which I presumed to be a star or planet in the evening sky. I took a measurement with a protractor, the base as level as I could gather, the point of light was about 65deg. up from level @ about 18.00 as I was watching, it moved to a west south west direction of about 30 degrees from it's start point, which took roughly five to six seconds I continued to watch for about half an hour with no more movement of the object. The light was still flickering a constant flicker/shimmer plain white. In this time a passing satellite travelled north/south a good fair distance from this object I was observing.

I know aircraft and I know satellites and how these app! ear in the sky. I fealt it was the space station as it stayed in the same spot for a very long time after it moved and hasn't moved since. (as far as I can tell, though it may be moving away from me and not across my view). Thanks for the chance to report this.
