UFOs worth phoning home about
UFO lovers are agog at recent sightings of strange lights in Maryborough, with experts unable to shed any light on mysterious sightings.
After The Chronicle ran stories on strange orange lights, further reports of sightings flowed in.
While all residents had similar descriptions of the glowing balls of light and their slow movements back and forth across the sky, the story did take quite an eerie twist – no one was able to successfully capture the unidentified objects with a camera.
“My partner, my brother and I all saw the lights. I tried to film them on my phone, but when I later looked at the footage nothing showed up – very strange,” Phil and Karina wrote in an email.
“I took a very magnified photo of the last single orange orb, but it does not seem to have come out on my camera,” Martine said.
“It was very weird ... (the lights) did not seem to be flying too high above us.”
Greg said: “We saw four lights in a group,” Greg said.
“I tried to take photos with my camera, but they didn’t come up. I grabbed my binoculars to try and get a better look.
“It was queer ... while I could see a string of lights without the binoculars, when I looked through the binoculars I could only see one light.”
UFO Research Queensland sightings officer Martin Gottschall, who has studied UFOs for more than 30 years, yesterday said he had received reports about orange balls of lights moving over Maryborough.
