Sportsbet opens up a market on the mysterious UFO seen over Tasmania.

Online bookmaker’s market on the UFO flying over Tasmania suggests it was a mere commercial aeroplane, but what if it wasn’t?

  • An aeroplane is the $1.10 favourite
  • Aliens are only a $501 chance

A plane is the $1.10 favourite, but space junk burning up in the earth’s atmosphere is a distinct possibility at $7.50.

Punters can get $21 for it to be a meteor or comet, but the $501 for Aliens is a bit far-fetched!

Speaking of far-fetched, there’s a $5,001 chance the red trail from the object was Pauline Hanson skydiving, or in fact Jacqui Lambie in a cape!

“Yes, yes I know it was probably a plane but we’re not ruling anything out at this stage. We’re leaving it up to the punters to decide,” said’s Christian Jantzen.
