There has been a huge increase in the number of UFO sightings reported in the North Island of New Zealand over the past two months according to UFO watchers.
One man reported seeing a UFO land in the Northland region, Suzanne Hansen, director from Ufocus NZ research network said.
She said: “He’s a very credible source. He saw an object that had landed and said it was definitely not an aircraft or like anything else he had seen.
“I’ve got 30 (UFO/UAP) reports on my desk at the moment from the upper North Island and Northland from the past couple of weeks that we’re yet to process [on top of the many others] … It’s unprecedented.”
Maungakaramea resident Charles Gillard reported seeing strange lights hovering above the Tangihua ranges just after 4am yesterday.
Mr Gillard said the white and blueish lights were definitely not a helicopter or plane and darted about at speed for several minutes before simply vanishing.
“I’ve never seen anything like it before, but it definitely wasn’t somebody with a torch or vehicles as it was above the skyline, not on the hills,” he said.
Inquiries could not find any helicopters or planes operating in the area at that time yesterday morning.
Ms Hansen said Mr Gillard’s sighting was similar to others reported recently in Northland and Ufocus would be looking into all such reports made to its website www.ufocusnz.org.nz.
“Researchers we work with in Australia have reported the same things happening there with what we call a “UFO Flap” [an outbreak of UFO sightings] there as well,” Ms Hansen said.
However, the NZ Skeptics (New Zealand Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal) says UFO sightings can be easily explained, usually by natural phenomena.
NZ Skeptics spokeswoman Vicki Hyde said despite the “unprecedented” number of UFO sightings recently this was the first the public had heard of the situation.
“The problem with UFO sightings is that there are a such a huge number of possible explanations for them.
“Something like 80-90 per cent are people mistaking things like Venus for UFOs.”
A weird link has been made recently between major UFO sightings and the share prices for Lockheed Martin and Boeing.
Whenever a sighting occurs, the shares of these companies rise. This link was made by Cory Bortnicker from minyanville.com
Cory does give a possible explanation for this:
When a UFO sighting makes the news, social mood shifts towards the paranoid, thereby driving up the share prices of the very military-industrial complex companies we rely on for air defense.
However this trend suddenly went horribly wrong with the recent Jerusalem and Utah sightings. Lockheed Martin shares went up as expected, but Boeing’s share price dropped.

Two differents points of view of the same white Ufo Orb at the Dome of the Rock, Temple Mount. 01/27/11 around 1:00 am:
When we think of UFOs, we generally think of alien spacecraft piloted by green-skinned Graliens from other planets, right? A more appropriate assessment of this perception might instead be that, although this is generally the case in the world today, the idea is more recent than most people realize.
Recently I saw an article by Norio Hayakawa which asked some interesting questions, in addition to pointing out a few things about UFO believers in general. Namely, Hayakawa notices trends among the beliefs and values of most UFO buffs he has met, which include “living right,” “searching for truth,” and a lack of desire for “acquisition of material wealth or power.” Many also describe having “something to look forward to in life.”
I find that this correlates well with some of the lesser known aspects of Ufology’s past; specifically, I’m referring to contact with “space brothers” or “interdimensionals” (among the various names folks used for them prior to 1947). This was a particularly interesting period for Ufology because, in spite of the fact that little actual UFO activity was reported in the same manner it is today, there are certainly still encounters on the record, and many of them involve spiritual elements.
Before I get to those, however, I must assert here that this is usually as far as I get before the average UFO buff stops me to say, “you’re wrong! There WERE reports of UFOs that occurred back then!” So again, just to clarify, I certainly acknowledge that there were nuts-and-bolts anomalous aircraft witnessed in the decades before that pivotal year of 1947… but I’ve digressed long enough.

THE two latest sightings of a panther-like creature in the Macarthur area have been reported on macarthurchronicle.com.au
Sharon posted she had spotted the animal with her son while driving along Riverside Drive at Airds on Saturday, July 4. “Last night at about about 11pm my son who is learning to drive was driving along Riverside Drive at Airds as part of our driving lesson,” she posted.
“We saw this what appeared to be a black large animal run at lightening speed from one side of road into bushland.
“When I got a better look at it as went to go into the bush it appeared to be like panther.
“It wasn’t a dog as it was quite high in height. My son thought it was a greyhound at first. It was faster than I have ever seen a dog run and seemed to leap and bound as it ran. It freaked us both out and I was relieved my son did not hit it.”
