- Lights in the Lilydale skies have Wayne Winter and Adin
Monks convinced we are not alone.
- Late on Friday night, the teenagers saw a group of yellow
lights above Chirnside Park Hill and are now questioning whether or not
stargazer theories are just science-fiction fodder.
- "The lights were bigger than normal stars, they
were moving, and in a perfect triangle," Adin, 15, said. "We
followed them for a while and then they all disappeared."
- They tracked them for 20 minutes, first on foot, then
in a car, before the lights vanished.
- Wayne, 19, said planes often flew over the area, but
the lights they saw were too closely grouped to be aircraft, and were moving
in the wrong direction.
- He and his friend are not Star Trek groupies or UFO hunters,
but after the encounter, they could be converted.
- "It was just a joke to begin with when we saw the
lights and said, 'Yeah, UFO', but then it became too real," he said.
- "We weren't out there stargazing or anything, we
just saw it by coincidence.
- "We don't know what it was and there's no explanation
- Lilydale is a long way from Area 51, the root of all
alien conspiracy theories, but Mr Winter says that means nothing, because
these little green guys can go anywhere they want.
- And so with "evidence" at hand, the question
has to be asked: "Is the truth out there, in Lilydale?"
