Several witnesses observed up to five objects over the country's Rotorua and Bay of Plenty regions.

New Zealand Herald said:

During a number of separate sightings this month a rural Rotorua resident filmed what he described as a "blinking ufo object and big bright sphere object" as well as a "bright light ufo, strange skies ufo and fireballs".

Very interesting story.

Looking forward to theories. :)

It's interesting that's for sure, I'm looking forward to seeing what the experts say.

Lots of people capturing strange things with night vision equipment.

Not terribly compelling footage I must say; interesting though how many of these night vision videos we are seeing now.  Can this be done with an ordinary DVD Cam?

Not if you're left-handed.

Interesting.. I wasn't aware the flap was still on-going...

Some of the footage looks like satellites to me... *shrugs* but as I know we've been having a lot of sightings of late I'm not rulling it out as possibly genuine..  

We've had a lot of sightings this year, I think it began in March, and is on-going. Is interesting because since they showed up there's also been an increase in volcanic activity in and around the central North Island. Mount Tongariro has erupted twice now, Ruaphehu is starting to rumble again, Tarawera/rotorua is all part of the same hot-spot, as is super volcano Taupo..

Being familiar with Lake Tawawera i can tell you that on hot days boats on the far side of the lake appear to be floating quite high above the lake in the heat haze. But only if viewed from lake level, not from the surrounding hills/mountains.

But the other discriptions of UFO's remind me of the Kaikoura UFO that was filmed by a current affiars show in 1978

Made an account just to comment.
The statement about the glowing orbs floating across a street, is almost exactly the same as an encounter I had about 10 years ago now.
Im from New Zealand and my sighting was almost identical but the orb was blue And floated out from behind some trees  and across a road in front of us.

I think so..
I think they are showing interest in what is happening as opposed to actually creating these geological events though.. As you know from another thread, I follow and have been following earthquakes & volcanic events for years. It's curious these guy's show up when and where they do, and usually over known fault lines & geothermal areas.

Cool.. Click goes my theory again, lol, I didn't know there were geothermal hot-springs there.. I thought the nearest might have been Waingaro.. so, was this UFO, kind of light blue? and strangely difficult to determine it's outline?

I have to agree, they look an awful lot like satellites. Maybe even this The ISS has been in the vicinity in similar time frames.

Was my first thought as well, earth-lights are strongly associated with Volcanic activity, but these look like satellites, maybe some earth-lights sparked some imaginations?

I just hope it's quiet and draws some tourism in, after Christchurch you guys have had more than your fair share of late. I hope it becomes a blessing is disguise, and not another disaster.

What has me wondering is that the Bay and Rotorua are hardly on the same border. That would indicate satellites I would think.
