Melbourne, April 29 (ANI): The reports of UFO sightings in Australia have gone up with at least seven separate incidents having been reported in the past week.
The sighting of some "unexplained phenomena" has been happening almost every night since the first was reported last week, and most have taken place in Darwin's rural area.
A woman, who wants to be identified as only Shirel, reported the first sighting on April 21, saying that she saw the strange lights from her Humpty Doo home hovering over Howard Springs.
"The lights were really low in the sky, really bright, with flashing dots," the Daily Telegraph quoted her as saying.
"Three of them formed a semi-circle and they hovered over the area for at least half an hour," she revealed.
There were three separate sightings on April 23 including British backpacker Kylie Myers who said she had "never believed in anything like UFOs" before her strange encounter.
Myers, 27, said she stopped her car on the side of the road to grab her camera from the glove box, but the light disappeared.
"It was pretty spooky," she stated.
There were more sightings at Coolalinga on April 24, Acacia Hills on April 25 and again in Howard Springs on April 27.
But astronomer Geoff Carr told the Northern Territory News he was "far from believing any of this UFO stuff".
"Unless aliens have found a way to travel faster than light speed, it's a doubtful thing to believe they came to visit us," he said.
Carr added he believed 99.9 per cent of all the UFO sightings could be explained as simple weather phenomena. (ANI)
