A new spiral UFO, very similar to the one seen over Norway in December 2009, has been seen over New South Wales, Queensland and the ACT Australia. The UFO was seen at sunrise on June 5th.
The UFO was described as yellowish in color and said to have lasted two or three minutes.
Astronomers like Geoffrey Whyatt from the Sydney Observatory have already declared the UFO space junk or possibly a rocket.
“The fact that you’ve got the rotation, the spiral effect, is very reminiscent of the much widely reported sightings from Norway and Russia last year, which both turned out to be a Bulava missile which was being adjusted in its orbit.
So possibly a rocket, I would say, having some sort of gyroscopic stability rocket fired on its side.
The first I saw of the spirals was last year when they were reported in Norway and then a few days later in Russia.
The Norway one was very spectacular because of its symmetrical appearance.
But the one this morning and the one in Russia bear a striking similarity of being the same effects from a rocket trying to be controlled or adjusted.”
A privately-owned rocket launched from Cape Canaveral in Florida on its first test flight is believed to be responsible.
Doug Moffett from UFO Research NSW finds some problems with the quick rocket explaination.
“Firstly, the time of the launch was 18.45 GMT, which translates to 4.45am EST, the duration of the flight was 9 minutes 38 seconds – this is a full hour before the reported sightings.
Secondly, where was the glow from the boosters or from the friction created by the craft moving through the atmosphere, where was the tail of the rocket?
Thirdly, why would anyone launch a rocket on a maiden test flight with a trajectory that would take it over the most heavily populated parts of Australia?
And how big must this rocket have been to be seen so clearly, at the same time, over such a vast distance?”
