AP News New Zealand – An unprecedented number of UFO reports have occurred in the last 2 months in New Zealand, including the report of an actual craft landing.
Suzanne Hansen, director from Ufocus NZ research network described the report from a man who claims a landing of a craft took place.
“He’s a very credible source. He saw an object that had landed and said it was definitely not an aircraft or like anything else he had seen. “I’ve got 30 (UFO/UAP) reports on my desk at the moment from the upper North Island and Northland from the past couple of weeks that we’re yet to process [on top of the many others] … It’s unprecedented.”
The Northland Region’ (Māori: Te Tai-tokerau, also Te Hiku-o-te-Ika, ‘the Tail of the Fish (of Maui)), one of the 16 regions of New Zealand, is, as the name suggests, the northernmost of New Zealand‘s administrative regions. The main centre is the city of Whangarei.
In a separate report, Maungakaramea resident Charles Gillard reported seeing strange lights hovering above the Tangihua ranges just after 4am yesterday. Mr Gillard said the white and blueish lights were definitely not a helicopter or plane and darted about at speed for several minutes before simply vanishing.
“I’ve never seen anything like it before, but it definitely wasn’t somebody with a torch or vehicles as it was above the skyline, not on the hills,” he said.
Inquiries could not find any helicopters or planes operating in the area at that time yesterday morning. Ms Hansen said Mr Gillard’s sighting was similar to others reported recently in Northland and Ufocus would be looking into all such reports made to its website www.ufocusnz.org.nz.
