UFO Sighting Reports - New Zealand

Flag of New Zealand

Please note that the reports in this section have been submitted to UFOINFO and accepted in good faith. No investigation has been carried out by UFOINFO.

With the increasing use of digital cameras we are seeing more photos showing alleged 'UFOs' - many of these could be insects, cloud shapes etc. As many readers have asked to see the photos I will be using some of them and leaving it to the individual to make up their own mind - John @ UFOINFO.
