UFOs invade Australian town

A SMALL Territory community is still reeling with shock after four UFOs descended on their Outback homes.
Families spent hours in fear as what appeared to be three spaceships hovered in the distance with another just metres above their houses.
The drama at Marlinja, population 112 and 730km south of Darwin, began at 8pm on Sunday.
Resident Janie Dixon said it started as an "ordinary" night.
"The kids were on the basketball courts, shooting a few hoops, and I was indoors talking to my two nieces when we heard a strange, loud noise," she said. "We ran outside but at first we couldn't see anything -- it was really dark and we could hear the sound.
"The sound was horrible. It sounded like something was going past. "We thought it was a jet. I saw what I thought at first was the evening star, the first star you usually see at night. "But then we saw three red lights in the distance, and the sound kept getting louder.
"The ground felt like it was shaking, so we ran inside and shut the doors. "My nephew and niece were looking out through curtains. The thing came closer, circled around the basketball courts and then came so close above our house.
"The kids at the basketball courts ran -- two girls stood there looking towards the sky.
"They tried to see what it was but all they could see was this bright red light in the pitch black." Ms Dixon said the UFO hovered above the homes for what seemed like a couple of hours.
She said at one stage the phone rang, but went dead when she tried to answer it. "Then the light in the house became so bright, it was like we were sitting in a football stadium," she said. "After a while, after the things all disappeared... I think it was about 11pm by then. "We went outside and were just sitting around drinking tea and talking about it all. The kids were put to bed. "We heard the noise again and it came back, but disappeared again moments later.
"We were all really frightened. "It was a big shock and I couldn't sleep."

Police chase UFO over Cardiff

By Laura Clout - The Telegraph UK
A police helicopter crew gave chase to a UFO after it almost collided with their aircraft near a military base.
The pilot was forced to bank sharply to avoid being hit by the mystery aircraft as the helicopter was returning to the Ministry of Defence base of St Athan, near Cardiff.
The three crew, who described the UFO as 'flying saucer-shaped', then gave chase, getting as far as the North Devon coast before they ran low on fuel, it was reported.
The police aircraft was hovering at 500ft and waiting clearance to land on June 7, when those onboard spotted the other craft hurtling towards them from below.

A spokesman for South Wales Police said: "We can confirm the Air Support Unit sighted an unusual aircraft. This was reported to the relevant authorities for their investigation."
It was reported that the aircraft closed in at great speed, aiming straight for the helicopter which swerved sharply.
"They are convinced it was a UFO. It sounds far-fetched, but they know what they saw."
The helicopter crew are said to have crossed the Bristol channel in pursuit of the UFO, but lost sight of it and had to turn back due to a fuel shortage.
The sighting comes weeks after the most comprehensive Government files on UFO activity are opened to the public for the first time today and they disclose that even air traffic controllers and police officers have seen mysterious craft in the skies over Britain.
The sightings range from incredible tales of little green men visiting the Wirral to corroborated accounts from policemen and pilots of Unidentified Flying Objects hovering above towns and cities.
All were recorded on official forms, held by air bases and police stations, and compiled by the Ministry of Defence between 1978 and 2002.

May 3 & 5, 2008 'Amber' UFO Sightings

At Approximately 8:45 p.m. on Saturday May 3rd, SIU Investigator, Adam Johnson, accompanied by filmmakers/brothers Josh and Ron Johnson, and four residents of the “Marley Woods,” were able to witness a brilliant display of ‘Amber lights’. A total of 7-8 silent ‘Amber lights’ were witnessed. It began with one light appearing then suddenly blinking out after about 2-3 seconds. Next, another ‘Amber light’ appeared (approximately 500 feet east from the first object); it lasted a few seconds and was followed instantly by a light extremely close to the west and yet again by another light parallel to its position and within very close proximity (reminiscent of the ‘Phoenix Lights’.) After that, a light came on directly southwest of the other two lights position. They all lasted a few seconds and then disappeared. Approximately 5 minutes later, two more objects appeared subsequently after each other and lasted no longer than 10 seconds each.
On May 5, 2008 just two nights after SIU team members observed and imaged several large bright amber objects the following events took place.

At 8:55 p.m. the Site 1 property owner, his wife and the property caretaker saw 2 huge and brilliant amber objects to the north for several seconds. At 8:57 p.m. I received a cell phone call from the property owner telling me of the event.
During our conversation I listened as the witnesses observed an additional 15 bright amber objects. He described the events as they first appeared in the northeast, then the northwest and back to the north. The objects did not block the cell phone transmissions. The total observation lasted over 20 minutes. Article and videos here

It's the ghost buster

By GREER McDONALD - The Dominion Post
Brad Scott ain't afraid of no ghosts.
Instead, the hobbyist spook-finder wants Wellingtonians to swing open the doors to their haunted homes and paranormal places in the name of science and "debunking" bumps in the night.
"Everyone's had some type of experience, whether it's seeing something out the corner of your eye or a door opening. There are genuine people who are terrified," he said.
Mr Scott, who moved to New Zealand from Australia last year, said Wellington had a range of buildings that would be wonderful to explore.
As lead investigator and founder of NZ Paranormal, he said his background in building and engineering allowed him to "debunk 90 per cent" of ghost claims, but it was the remaining 10 per cent of "unknown" that kept him dead keen.
"Every so often we come across evidence that we just cannot explain."
Logical explanations usually included humidity in houses or malfunctioning electronics.
He has spent thousands of dollars over the years on his ghost-detecting "tools of the trade", which include electromagnetic field (EMF) detectors, voice recorders, microphones and video recorders.
As he was being interviewed at a Johnsonville cemetery, he received an elevated reading from the EMF detector.
"That's strange," he said as he stood next to a large headstone.
EMF detection meters are used to find disruptions in the "natural" magnetic field, which ghost hunters say provides "credible evidence" of paranormal activity.
Mr Scott does not charge for his service, for which he and his team - friend Rob and Rob's apprentice son Oliver - investigate suspected haunted houses.
But he does distance himself from the Hollywood perception of a ghostbuster. "I don't have a proton pack," he said, in reference to the contraption used in the 1984 blockbuster film Ghostbusters.
Mr Scott said his work aimed to "disprove" that ghosts exist, rather than prove it. "Nine out of 10 times I'm told I'm the most scariest thing there."
