I must confess … I’ve actually seen a UFO.
It was several years ago now – early 2000’s perhaps? The hubster and I were walking outside the Cleveland Library building in the early evening – around 7 or 7.3opm. I suspect we’d just been to the library, which is open until 7.30pm on Wednesday and Thursday nights; when all of a sudden we noticed a peculiar object in the night sky above us.
It was too dark to really see the object but we could see white flashing lights on it, and it just seemed to be hovering above us. It didn’t seem too far above us either – maybe 100 or 200 metres?
There was no noise at all; as we watched, it zipped off to the east at great speed and disappeared. It didn’t move like any aircraft we’d ever seen before!
We had no idea what it was but it certainly had us intrigued. We rang the Amberley Air Force Base, and they said they’d had several other calls from the area about it. They didn’t seem to know what it was either.
I’ve scoured the internet and so far haven’t been able to find any reported sightings that match “our” UFO. If you are interested in finding out about other UFO sightings, UFO Info and also UFO Research Qld list a number of eyewitness acounts and reports from the last ten or fifteen years.
All these years later I still don’t know what to think!
Have you ever seen a UFO?
