UFO Buzz Puts NT Into Flap
Ben Langford

A 'UFO flap' is taking place and Territorians are needed to help
scan the skies during a national spotting session tomorrow.

The Australian UFO Research Network has about 40 people across
the country ready for a co-ordinated effort.

Network national director Diane Frola said there had been more
than 35 sightings in the past seven weeks.

"Certain parts of the world go through what is called a UFO
flap... when there's a multitude of sightings coming from all
different areas at the same time," she said.

"Because it's been active the past seven weeks we decided the
more pairs of eyes looking up the better."

Ms Frola there were only two or three Territorians signed up for
tomorrow's 6.30pm start.

"There have been sightings of triangle-shaped craft with lights
underneath, cylinder-shaped craft, there has been craft that
look like a wheel of lights," she said.

"There have been 30 or 40 dancing lights off SA that took off in
different directions."

A navy sailor contacted the Northern Territory News following
Thursday's report of a UFO sighting on Groote Eylandt.

Aaron Clement remembered seeing a similar flying object while in
the Gulf of Carpentaria as a seaman on HMAS Kanimbla in July

"I read it in the paper ... and I said 'get out' -- I saw
exactly the same thing," he said. "It was high up in the sky.

It was like a ball (then) it went orange and went away. Everyone
thought it's a bit strange."

Thursday's story prompted several more reports of flying

One woman said she saw a straight-moving ball of light crossing
Darwin Harbour last Saturday night, another woman saw "orange,
green and white" flashing shapes moving around the moon.
