Thankyou Mark Mabgat for sending this clipping to us and keeping us all informed.
UFOs--- bright orange lights flying in formation-- have been spotted by several Darwin people in the past few days. Peta Wilson was among those who saw up to six lights flying in triangular formation over the Nightcliff area on Sunday night.
But neither the Darwin Weather Bureau nor the RAAF had an explanation yesterday. And neither was aware of the phenomenon. Ms Wilson said yesterday. "I an avid skywatcher, I have a telescope and I've seen comets and planets. "but I've never seen anything to match this it really scared me. "It was shortly before 8pm and I was driving down Dick Ward Dve towards Nightcliff.
"Suddenly I saw this orange light in the sky and I thought it was a plane at first. "Then I saw another light and rolled my window down, but there was no jet noise. "The Lights were over the sea and then four more joined them. "There were six in all, in a line moving in and out of formation. "They were there for about five minutes, with no smoke or tails of any kind. "I stopped next to a group who were watching and it was incredible-- they were freaking out. "The lights then moved into a triangular shape. "They looked somehow as if they were just floating there." Ms Wilson said she did not know a lot about extra terrestrials. "I know people have seen some strange things, but I never seen anything like this. "she said. "I have no answer for it." Her sighting was confirmed by several other callers to the Northern Territory News Yesterday.
