I was standing on my front verandah having a coffee & cigarette at 11:55am local Queensland time on Saturday the 2 of Feb 2013 on Russell Island looking east towards North Stradbroke Island
I was thinking what a beautiful day it was after some very heavy weather when I noticed a white 'craft' moving very slowly in a south - north direction.
It just appeared.
I observed it for about 6 seconds, flying dead straight, when it just winked out.
I thought 'What the hell?' It was flying against a very clear blue sky, with white clouds way above it so I know it didn't just fly into clouds and disappear.
I watched the same patch of sky for another 5 to 10 minutes when it re-appeared.
This time it was above the flight path it had taken and further south but still flying at the same speed and in the same direction, again for about 6 seconds, but just before it winked out it seemed to 'bank' in a left direction. It appeared slightly larger.
Then once again it simply disappeared against a very blue sky.
Then about 10 minutes later a helicopter appeared flying from the general area of the craft over North Stradbroke Island from east to west straight over my house.
I stood on the verandah for another half hour but observed nothing else.
I first noticed it because it seemed to just appear out of thin air.
I was looking at the right spot at the right time. Pure chance.
When I first noticed it I thought it was an airplane.
Even though it had been clear sky I thought it might have come down through the clouds but when it just suddenly disappeared twice I knew it was not 'normal.'
Was it a UFO? Yes.
Was it a man made UFO, perhaps.
