UFO seen over the Gold Coast approximately 5.55am Saturday June 5th, 2010. I was on the beach, at the water's edge and looked to the west to see a beautiful, bright moon. Except it wasn't the moon! It was a bright light moving slowly east, towards me and surrounded by a swirling mist. The mist rotated clockwise around the bright, white light and followed it perfectly. The light moved slowly across the sky (directly above the Coolangatta Airport) and remained silent the whole time. It disappeared in the east (seemingly disappearing into a cloud!). This UFO was witnessed by many people on the East Coast of Australia and at this stage in time has been dismissed as being space junk. See for yourself. It was NOT the ISS (Space Station) according to it's orbit information and time. It MAY HAVE BEEN the X-37B as it's orbit passed over Australia. UPDATE: June 12th, 2010. It's been one week since I filmed this video and I want to thank everyone for their comments. I think the majority of people support the explanation that it is the Falcon9 rocket, spinning and venting fuel and is thus now an IFO, not a UFO! This fuel leakage reflecting off the morning sun certainly explains the glowing, rotating mist I saw! Also, thanks for all the views. This video made it to Number 5 most viewed this week in Australia! I really am astonished just how many people have seen it. Certainly beats my Koala video, which strangely, no one has yet claimed to be fake!!! Finally, to answer those who asked <b>...</b>
