UFOs sighted over New Zealand

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

Parts of New Zealand have become a hotbed for sightings in recent weeks. In an incident that occurred at the end of October, four people reported witnessing five glowing orbs moving across a road and out of sight behind some trees. "They were all perfectly round with a larger orange-coloured orb leading about four smaller orbs all in a line about the same distance apart," said a petrol station employee. "They were moving on an angle before they disappeared behind some trees."

In another incident, a Lake Tarawera resident claimed that he'd photographed a bright orange orb moving slowly across the lake. "We saw it heading from roughly a southern position heading north low in the sky," he said. "It appeared to be a rotating ball with varying colours. It was not along any flight paths that I see airplanes on either."

"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"."

The probes idea is feasible. I've read about this somewhere. We could send out probes with a programmed agenda...to explore and send back data. Their first priority is to search for planets where they can replicate themselves, and their numbers grow exponentially over time. It's a "techie" version of panspermia. That would be these beasties.

I haven't seen any! Neither have I. But I don't know why they can't just leave crop circles like they do in the UK. http://www.nzherald....jectid=10852829

It's likely they were Chinese lanterns. Quite common in my area on an occasion such as new years eve...especially when you say they appeared right at midnight.

Are you in Auckland? I saw the same thing and was initially excited, but quickly realised they were lanterns
