    Thank you to Tony Beresford for letting me know that 
    those coordinates could not be correct.  The correct 
    location is:  35.242S, 149.158E, 600m.

    The result so far leaves the object as UNID, and the 
    observer did get some photography -- but may have made 
    a mistake with the time, which may be ascertainable 
    via the images.
    Continuing clouds here.
