UFO Sighting Report - New Zealand

Please note that the reports in this section have been submitted to UFOINFO/UFO ROUNDUP 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 up to the individual to make up their own mind - John @ UFOINFO.

August 19th 2006 : Hira, Nelson, South Island


UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Hira, Nelson

Date: sat 19th 2006 about 2 am local {not exact}

Approach Direction: from the ground up

Departure Direction: from the sky down

Witness Direction: west

Description: We have a large floor to ceiling window that covers the entire wall of the bedroom and I like to watch the stars before I go to sleep. I was amazed to see a bright circular ball of light come up suddenly from behind the trees and shoot off up into the stars at a tremendous velocity. It went up at a slight angle but soon disappeared. I was a bit perplexed as to what it was but it came back about half an hour later and I saw it for longer. It was very high and travelling very fast breaking and wobbling a little as if there was some turbulence. If it had been a plane it would have been travelling and many thousands of miles per hour but it also come straight down on nearly the same path that it had left on.

Color/Shape: circular or sperical white glowing light

Height & Speed: in the dark there was no relative objects to gauge this against.
