UFOs Call Town Home
by Ian Haberfield

The tiny town of Beveridge, north of Melbourne, is fast earning
a reputation as Australia's UFO hot spot.

Since Whittlesea Council released a photograph purportedly
showing a UFO, other locals have come forward claiming to have
seen flying objects.

Kilmore resident Peter Christie said he was taking his daughter,
Elise, to a friend's house about 10pm on Saturday, January 10,
when he noticed something flying in the west.

"I saw this round thing in the sky with lights coming out of
it," she said. "It was sort of moving. It wasn't going very fast
or anything.

"It had big, round lights coming out of it, it was too wide to
be a plane... and it was nothing like a helicopter."

She said there were several lights beaming outwards from the
side of the object, parallel to the ground.

"We both said, 'no, that's definitely not a plane'," she said,
adding that the object was in view for several minutes.

"We were going over a hill and there was one stage when we
couldn't see anything. Then it appeared again. I wasn't scared.
I was a bit shocked."

Mr Christie, who was driving, managed a few short glances at the
object but agreed it was definitely not a plane.

"We didn't know what it was... and then we heard the news the
other day," he said.

Elise said several people had greeted her comments about the
sighting with scepticism. So she stopped talking of it until
Whittlesea Council's photograph, with a disc-shaped object in
the sky, was widely publicised late last month.

The release of Whittlesea Council's UFO photo sparked much
interest and the council's website recorded more than 37,000
hits over three days.

Council traffic engineer Roland Rozario, who took the photo, was
interviewed reporters from across the globe and websites
reprinted his photograph.
