    I hope someone can help me. I am trying to identify an object seen from
    aircraft, (by the pilot) on August 12 2000, at approximately 9:25 UTC.
    The "orange flame with a blue tail" was seen to travel from the
    "northwest to the southeast". 
    The aircraft was on approach for Coolangatta. (Queensland, Australia.
    At this stage I am uncertain exactly how close to Coolangatta it was,
    so those Lat/Lon may be a considerable distance out. However, _any_
    reasonable candidate would be worthy of closer inspection.

    1) Can anyone advise where these objects finally "went down"?
    2) Does anyone know of other possibilities that I have missed?
    Thanks in advance,
