A TINY town in north Queensland is on full UFO alert following sightings of strange lights in the night sky.
Cardwell businessman Greg Smith said he and his son watched the lights for 15 minutes and are convinced that what they saw was some sort of UFO.
“There were two large orange lights. There was no beam and no noise. It was absolutely silent and they were moving slowly across the sky towards the north-west. We couldn’t tell if the lights were from one or two machines. At first we thought they were over buildings between the highway and the beach, but other people said they were just out over the water,” he said.
Mr Smith said he thought it must have been one or two helicopters, but discounted the possibility due to the fact there was no noise.
President of UFO Research Queensland Sheryl Gottschall said she could not say what the lights were, but added she had no qualms in saying there were extraterrestrials which visited earth from time to time.
There is a distinct lack of sound here but that could just mean that the object (or objects) are just too far away to really hear it. It’s at night time so it’s really dark and all you see are two small lights. No indication on how far away or how close they are. Satellites?
