WAS it a plane, a planet or a satellite shining in the night sky?

Or were the mysterious bright lights seen hovering over Glenelg and in New South Wales on Monday night something truly out of this world?

An Adelaide woman says she thinks the light might be a planet orbiting close to the Earth but Adelaide man Kurt Holmes, 43, who is working in New South Wales, is certain he captured a UFO on his camera.

He was photographing fruit bats in trees outside his motel room in Newcastle when he snapped a few frames and unexpectedly found a mysterious white spot on an image.

"There was four of us out there and nobody saw anything (with the naked eye),'' he said "But I took a pic of a bat and I was amazed at this big, white spot on there.

"I was shooting at a 45 degree angle and it looked like the underside of a flying saucer. I have no doubt it was a UFO - it was just too perfect to be anything else."

Back in South Australia the same night, a bright light high in the sky, almost directly west of Glenelg, caught the eye of Ms. Darrell Baillie as she lay in bed, looking out her bedroom window and over Gulf St Vincent.

A spokesman for the Bureau of Meteorology said it might have been a weather balloon or a quirky refraction of light, but he did not have enough information to make even an educated guess as to what it was.

The clear white light with a shimmering edge reappeared on Tuesday leaving Ms. Baillie entertained but puzzled.

"I noticed the bright light at about 9.30 pm (on Monday) and at first I thought it was a plane coming in to land at (Adelaide) airport," she said. "I thought it's too high and it's going to miss the runway but it stayed fairly stationary for some time and then disappeared over the horizon around midnight.

"Obviously, it wasn't a plane and it definitely wasn't the moon but I don't think it was a UFO either. There was no noise and I didn't feel funny or get taken away (by aliens) either."

The image appeared 'green-yellow' on the photos she took.

"I'm wondering if it was a planet or something, it didn't look like a UFO but it definitely wasn't the moon or an optical illusion," Ms. Baillie said. "Maybe it is (a planet that) must be on some kind of orbit close to earth at the moment."
