UFO group wants to hear your story
Monday, 30 August 2004

QUIRINDI residents who may have seen something out of the ordinary a week ago are being urged to contact a group of Sydney UFO researchers.

The Independent Network of UFO Researchers (INUFOR) has put out the call after being contacted by several Quirindi people who reported a close encounter of the unusual kind on Sunday, August 22.

INUFOR co-ordinator Moira McGhee said the residents had contacted her with reports of seeing "small, silvery craft in the sky and a white, sticky substance falling to earth". "This is reminiscent of a similar incident in 1998," she said.

On that occasion, on August 10, 1998, Quirindi residents on the outskirts of town reported watching "about 20 silvery baubles" high in the sky for about an hour-and-a-half, with a "cobweb-like substance" falling to the ground as the objects manoeuvred around.
At the time, Ms McGhee said the reports of the objects and the associated "angel hair" were similar to other unexplained reports from around the world.

Ms McGhee said in the most recent case they had been unable to explain the substance or the objects and would appreciate hearing from anyone who witnessed any other similar incidents.
INUFOR can be contacted on 02 4757 3848 after 7pm. LINK
