UFOs spotted in sky over Childers

A CHILDERS man has come forward after seeing what he believed was an unusual object in the night sky not once, but twice.

The man, who wished not to be named, said the two sightings had been about two weeks apart.

The local said he usually had a clear view of the heavens without noise or smog as he often camped in the bush.
"I camp out in the bush and I get a good view of the sky," he said.

But it was one particular camping trip about a month ago that made the avid outdoorsman believe there was something - or someone - looking down on us.

"To the south, rising over the hill, I saw a light like a star," he said of the object that he first thought might have been a helicopter.

"It rose higher and higher and I thought 'that's not a star' and a beam of light came to the ground and there was no noise.

"One minute it would stop, then it would keep going again."

The man said he kept an eye on the object until it eventually disappeared into the night sky.

"I watched it for about 15 minutes, then it disappeared towards Bundy," he said.

If aliens came to earth, would you like to meet them?

This poll ended on 02 July 2013.

Yes, that would be so exciting! - 33%

Only if they were really friendly - 30%

No way, keep them away from me! - 5%

I've already met them - 30%

This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.

The Childers man said he believed there were other life forms in the universe, especially after his second strange encounter only a fortnight after his first.

Again he said the object looked like a bright star - at first.

"I watched it for two-and-a-half-hours," he said.

"There was a tree and I was using that as a marker and I was watching that and it was moving around and it moved west and then east then rose up and down and I thought it was going away but it came back again."

The man said this time it seemed the object wasn't completely alone.

"There were a lot of little white dots around it," he said.

He said the UFOs had put on quite a spectacle.

"The way these things move is just incredible," he said.

"They're out there, I believe they are."

The man, who did not want his name used, said he was hoping locals could get together to form a discussion group on the subject of Bundaberg being classed as a UFO hot spot in some circles.

If you're interested in such a group, email crystal.jones@news-mail.com.au for your details to be passed along.

Bundaberg man and PoliceUFO.com researcher and website director Richard Jones said earlier this year it seemed Bundaberg had become a UFO hot spot, but more investigation and research was needed before it could truly be seen as an area of paranormal activity.
