An Australian witness at Bibra Lake reported a barbell-shaped object hovering overhead, according to testimony in Case 84571 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was awoken by a brilliant light in the bedroom about 2:25 a.m. on June 21, 2017.
“I first thought it was next door rear lights, but too bright,” the witness stated. “The light went out but was replaced by a bright orange glow coming from the southeast of the house. I went in that direction and observed a dumbbell-shaped light and item in the sky at around 45-degrees. I looked at it for some minutes but was driven back inside by the heavy rain.”
The witness mentioned the sighting to a next-door neighbor, but they experienced nothing.
“There has been no press or TV mention. The object did not move while I was looking toward it. About an hour later the light went out. It was raining heavily throughout the sighting.
Australian MUFON Provincial Director Mike Robinson closed this case as an Unknown Aerial Vehicle.
