Professional fishermen said yesterday
they had video footage showing a
recent possible UFO sighting off the coast
of northern New South
- Eden resident Mr Tony Bell, 33, and six other men claim
seen a strange, dome-shaped object when they were about six nautical
miles off the coast near Coffs Harbour.
- "This thing just appeared.
It was about 100 to 150
feet up in the sky," he said. Mr Bell said
the object had a bright
orange, shiny appearance and seemed to be
moving towards the fishermen's
- "It would move closer,
then move south of us, then
move closer again."
- Mr Bell asked a
colleague to grab the video and start
filming the object. "It was
a flying ship for sure," he said.
"You can see clearly from
the video that it was some sort of machine."
- The fishermen, all from Eden,
believe the object, which
subsequently took off and disappeared,
"was fair dinkum".
- Mr Bell is sending the video to the Melbourne-based,
privately-run National Space Centre.
- The centre's operations
director Mr Ross Dowe is waiting
to examine the video, and says
"it is definitely worth looking at".
- "Looking at star charts,
there is absolutely nothing
that could account for any light refraction
of any planet or star activity
at all," Mr Dowe said.
