A hobby photographer has filmed a UFO over Empire Bay near Sydney, Australia. He says the object was large, spherical and luminous, and one of many unexplained sightings he has had in the area over the years.

Drew Ryan says he took several pictures and filmed the object on July 2, which is coincidentally celebrated by some as World UFO Day. Drew told Australian newspaper, The Telegraph, “The ball changed colour several times until it went orange, and then it moved slowly across the sky to hover over Woy Woy for some time.’’

Ryan says this is the fifth time he has seen this object, and has spoken to others whom have seen it as well. He says, I drove to Staples lookout to try to get a better view and some people there told me it had appeared pear-shaped to them.”
