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 UFO, which did not show up on radar, nearly caused a mid-air collision over the skies of Denver with a corporate jet on Monday evening and officials have no idea what it was.

Because the private pilot was the only witness, and due to the lack of any radar signature, the incident falls into the category of an encounter with an unidentified flying object.

Police in Connecticut have said that they have been unable to locate a mysterious object seen falling from the sky by witnesses, one of them a state trooper.

The Connecticut State Police said that the glowing green object, which some witnesses described as being the size of a whale, was seen falling from the sky in the Litchfield area around 2 a.m. on Thursday morning.

It is believed to have plunged into Bantam Lake.

Police said that emergency responders attempted to locate the object, but the search was called off after a few hours.

On March 1, 2012, reports of a green glowing object seen falling in the skies above Conception Bay South, Newfoundland. Another green glowing object was filmed in the skies above Boca Raton, Florida on July 6, 2009

A mysterious round white object was filmed whizzing around a passenger plane above Seoul, the capital of South Korea, on April 7.

The clip begins with the ‘craft’ at the bottom of the screen, keeping pace with the passenger plane.

But then it speeds up and rises in altitude before zipping off out of shot, just as the startled person filming it tries to zoom in for a closer look.

When the UFO accelerates he can be heard making some sort of exclamation, as if trying to draw someone’s attention to it.

The video was uploaded by YouTube user ‘Crazybreakingnews’, who commented: ‘It looks a little bit strange and not really similar to the other videos. If it’s really real and not a fake, it looks like a kind of military drone.’

Several YouTube users are convinced it’s a UFO of some sort, but others remain sceptical.
