A Kawerau woman says a “hard to miss” strange object in the sky last night has her baffled.

Rebecca Couchman was standing on her deck with her partner and a friend when they all witnessed “a strange object in the sky that did not look normal”.

“It was orange/red and moving across the sky. There was no sound at all. It was silent.”

She said she didn’t believe it was a plane.

“We were standing out on the deck and it was hard to miss but right across the sky was an orange/red light moving fairly fast heading out towards Maketu way then all of a sudden it just disappeared.”

“There was three is us and none of us have ever seen anything like it before. And the guys that were with me used to serve in the army and they could not explain it at all. It was completely silent,” said Miss Couchman

” I always believed there is other life out there – now I definitely do!”

It’s a moth or a bird reflecting light… and its not flying straight across his phone because he is pissed and can’t hold it straight.
