18.08.96 BUNDABERG, QLD LATE AFTERNOON (CE1)
On Sunday, August 18, 1996, a woman and her family spotted a UFO near Bundaberg. "It was a bright orange saucer-shaped object," Helen M. said. She and her family were staying in Bargara, east of Bundaberg, with another family and helping with the sugar cane harvest. "I was outside...when I noticed what appeared to be a sunrise coming up on the horizon. At that time, the sun had already gone down behind the property. A saucer-shaped object rose rapidly into the sky, then was stationary for a short while before descending again. I had enought time to ask the people what it was, and they said they didn't have a clue," although one man thought it might have been a fireworks display in Bundaberg. "It wasn't particularly attractive or interesting to look at," Helen added. "What's more, it didn't disintegrate as it went below the horizon but remained solid."
