Stars Light Stars Bright

Sunday 23 October 2011

UFOSA received a call on Saturday night 22 October 2011 at 10:30 p.m. alerting us to the presence of a bright “star like” object, surrounded by other similar bright objects, to the East North East of Adelaide, as seen from one of the coastal suburbs in northwest Adelaide.

We will check the STAR CHART for the evening and try to determine if it could be a low-flying hovering planet with associated moons or some geostationary space debris.

It should be noted that in the 1950’s and 1960’s, there were time lapse photographic coverage of the night sky with fixed motion pictures cameras taking periodic shots perhaps every 10 minutes.

The resulting roll of film contained a swirling motion picture show with various stars and planets forming the swirling motions.

HOWEVER, in the midst of some of these sessions were very unusual stationary bright lights, in a time frame of the “space age” when there were few if any geostationary human satellites, aircraft, rockets or weather balloons.

    What has been described was clearly visible from Maslin Beach.
    Slightly north to the east at about 50-60 degrees to the horizon.

    It was very impressive.

    I believe that is either jupiter or mars.
    Easy way to tell is planets do not twinkle, stars do.
