    A privately-owned rocket launched from Cape Canaveral in Florida on its first test flight is the popular theory.

    But you know as well as I that it’s an alien spacecraft, don’t you?

    SpaceX’s Falcon 9

    US SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket, launched Friday from Cape Canaveral shortly before dawn broke over Australia.

    Btw i think the question should say ‘eastern Australia’ ??

    ‘Turn out’? Is there conclusive evidence pointing that way? Speculation is that it probably was the Falcon 9 launch.

    Also, most reports says Eastern, not Western Oz…

    It turned out to be a rocket launched using “Falcon 9” a spaceflight launch system. These rockets are designed and manufactured by “SpaceX”


  15. The UFO was seen moving through the sky just before Saturday’s sunrise in New South Wales, Queensland and capital city Canberra.

    probably the spacex rocket or falcon 9

    Falcon 9 rocket appears to be culprit. Though there seem to be references to space junk causing the light show.

    It was claimed as Unidentified flying object (UFO) on June 5, 2010 at Australia.
    But according to Geoffrey Whyatt from the Sydney Observatory its Bulava missile which was being adjusted in its orbit.
