NEW video footage of a strange light over Gladstone and Tannum Sands on Saturday shows the light flaring orange before returning to white.

Peter Harbrown shot the footage with his mobile phone.

He said he saw the light at 8.30pm, and "it definitely looked odd".

A reader who also saw the light said he and his friends all tried to take pictures with their phones, but when the lights were overhead "all of our stuff just shut right off. It was bizarre to say the least!"

Other Gladstone residents have confirmed the appearance of the strange light.

A reader on Monday shared how he had seen the UFO, which appeared as a bright orange light moving quite fast at first, then becoming almost stationary before moving off again.

"It came back several times and moved the same way each time. We saw it three different times, as did our neighbours and some friends in Gladstone. Definitely no ordinary aircraft or satellite."

Natalie Vedder, who was visiting from Sydney and staying with her brother, said: "We were in Booth Ave and saw a bright orange light shoot into the sky, and then it stopped and was still for at least five minutes.

"We were looking towards the south. It was amazing as we were only just talking about UFOs about 30 minutes before it appeared.

"When it was moving it looked like flames were falling from it and it was a really large orange light when it first appeared."

Jade Watters was camping with a mate at the Tannum Caravan Park on Millennium Boulevard and saw an orange coloured light moving across the sky at a slow pace.

"It was too low to be a plane and too high for any sort of remote control, but what freaked me was there was no noise from it at all," Jade said.

"We were camping and it was very quiet with only the crackling noise of our fire.

"I wanted to try to film it but my phone was flat and on charge in the car at the time. It was moving in a southern direction.

"I was certain it was a UFO but my mate was adamant that I was just looking into it too much."

Janet Hadley, who took some photos of the object, saw two lights - one faded out and then another one was there.
