- UFOs - bright orange lights
flying in formation - have been spotted by several Darwin people in the
past few days. Peta Wilson was among those who saw up to six lights flying
in triangular formation over the Nightcliff area on Sunday night. But neither
the Darwin Weather Bureau nor the RAAF had an explanation yesterday. And
neither was aware of the phenomenon.
- Ms Wilson said yesterday. "I an avid skywatcher,
I have a telescope and I've seen comets and planets. "but I've never
seen anything to match this it really scared me. "It was shortly before
8pm and I was driving down Dick Ward Dve towards Nightcliff.
- "Suddenly I saw this orange light in the sky and
I thought it was a plane at first. "Then I saw another light and rolled
my window down, but there was no jet noise. "The Lights were over
the sea and then four more joined them. "There were six in all, in
a line moving in and out of formation. "They were there for about
five minutes, with no smoke or tails of any kind. "I stopped next
to a group who were watching and it was incredible-- they were freaking
- The lights then moved into a triangular shape. "They
looked somehow as if they were just floating there." Ms Wilson said
she did not know a lot about extra terrestrials. "I know people have
seen some strange things, but I never seen anything like this. "she
said. "I have no answer for it." Her sighting was confirmed by
several other callers to the Northern Territory News Yesterday.

- I read with interest the report in the Northern Territory
News on about the 6th of July.
- I also saw the orange lights floating in the sky that
night and remarked to my wife that we would now get a rash of Ufo reports
in the paper. Sure enough, a couple of days later there they were.
- We have had quite number of these incidents over the
past 13 years I have been back in Darwin.
- I checked the objects out through binoculars and they
were the same as all the previous ones I have seen. Hot air devices made
of a large light weight plastic garbage bagsd with a flame suspended beneath.
The kids start them off with an electric hair drier and then the little
kerosene or spirit heat source takes over and up they go. You need a very
still night like July 4th was.
- I am a believer and an avid sky watcher. These types
of reports annoy me because they are so obviously explainable and I can't
imagine how these people can describe what they saw in the terms that they
use. It tendsto throw doubt on other reports I have read and I find it
counter productive to the real search for the truth.
