By By William AtkinsReports from eastern Australia of an UFO spiraling around in the sky Saturday morning (June 5, 2010) has been explained as the Falcon 9 rocket that was launched by private space transport company SpaceX from Cape Canaveral in the United States.
On Saturday, June 5, 2010, people in eastern Australia were reporting a spiraling light (similar to a pinwheel) with an especially bright central spot, which was crossing the sky just before sunrise, at times before 6:00 a.m. local time.
Read about the initial reports being talked about in the ABC.net.au article “UFO spotted over eastern Australia.”
The article states, “ABC News Online has received dozens of emails, pictures and videos from those who claim to have witnessed the huge white light.”
And, “Some described it as a "lollipop-type swirl". Others say it hovered for a while before gradually moving in an eastern direction until it was out of sight. Those who saw the object say photos do not reflect how large it actually was.”
The unidentified flying object (UFO) was seen in New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory, and Queensland. However, it can easily be explained rationally and logically.
Initial responses from astronomers and scientists stated that the UFO was most likely space junk, a satellite, or a rocket.
