Alice Springs, Australia - 07-15-09

Submitter Details:

Around 6:00 PM, on Wednesday evening, 15, July, my girlfriend and I were riding on our motorbike out of Alice Springs, heading south.

We noticed this white shape, like a bright cloud, over in the westerly direction, toward the Pine Gap area. I joked and said "It must be visiting the Americans!!".

And as we watched about 15 minutes, we stopped and took these two photographs, with an 8 Megapixel camera & a zoom lens. When we got home we zoomed in again and these are the photos.

Can you tell us what it may have been ?
