BRISBANE – A UFO was spotted on the Gold Coast of Australia.
A 10-minute video shot on the Gold Coast of a bright light in the sky has created a storm on YouTube – more proof of UFOs over Australia.
Brisbane man Sean Coulter was “winding down” from a night of partying at Tallai with 10 friends about 4:30 a.m. when he spotted the strange light.
After watching the ”strange light moving about” for 15 minutes, they decided to film it, capturing 10 minutes of footage.
Mr Coulter said the light appeared to slowly move away from them and draw clouds towards it, followed by a flash electrical storm.
“It was … in front of the clouds and there wasn’t a star to be seen, just this bright white light,” Mr Coulter said.
“It was moving left to right and was only a couple of hundred meters away.
“The whole thing was really eerie. It was like it was watching us.”
When the clouds cleared, he said the object was gone.
“I’ve never seen anything like it before,” he said.
“It was out of this world.
“Some of my friends that saw it are the biggest skeptics you’ve ever met but after seeing it they believe in UFOs.
“I work as a traffic controller so I spend a lot of time outside at night and see lots of things in the sky.
“This was like nothing else.”
UFO Research Queensland is examining Mr Coulter’s footage.
Sightings officer Martin Gottschall said there had been a spike in UFO “sightings” on the Gold Coast this year, reaching its peak in January and February when the Queensland floods hit.
While unable to put a number on the sightings, he said, anecdotally, the number of mysterious objects sighted in our skies was on the rise and types of UFOs had become more sophisticated.
“We’ve reached a stage where UFOs now camouflage themselves as ordinary objects, such as stars, so humans don’t notice them as much,” Mr Gottschall said.
“Around the Gold Coast area and up to the Sunshine Coast there have been a lot more reports than usual this year.
“The most common thing we hear about is yellow lights but UFOs can take many forms and colors.”
A spokesman from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority said he was not aware of recent UFO reports on the Coast.
