SYDNEY, New South Wales– Multiple witnesses claim they saw a UFO Wednesday hovering over a populated beach in Australia.
Don Jeffery, resident of Sydney’s northern suburb Dee Why, says he is convinced the object was a UFO.
“A lot of people were gazing skywards, about 20 or 30, and I asked what it was,” he told The Daily Telegraph. “Another person suggested it was a plane coming in to land, but it stayed in the same spot for 10 minutes and it looked like it had a tail.”
He said that the object was brighter than the sun and that it looked like a “disc-like object”. He was also able to take a few photographs of the purported UFO.
This region of Australia is regarded as a hot spot by some ufologists.
Last April an Australian woman said that she had proof that we are being visited by extraterrestrial beings.
In 1966 more than two hundred people reportedly watched an object land next to a school in Melbourne, Victoria, in what some have dubbed as one of the biggest UFO mysteries
UFO reports have also increased in the past few months, indicating we could be heading toward another “golden flying saucers era” similar to those predominant in the 40s, 60s, 70s and the 90s.
While critics argue that the advent of unmanned vehicles, also known as drones, have definitely played an important role in the misidentification of recent UFO reports, the majority of these sightings involve unexplained, ethereal visual orbs as well as shape shifting.
Back in January, a nurse and a truck driver reported seeing an unidentified flying object as “large as a football field” in the United States.
NASA released a controversial document last month prompting UFO enthusiasts to believe we could be on the verge of a full and open disclosure.
“I like to keep an open mind and with all of those galaxies out there I think there must be other life,” Jeffery said.
