UFO’s over Australia, UK…

FAMILIES in a small Northern Territory outback community claim they have seen three spaceships hovering just metres above their houses.
The claim comes as British ministry of defence chiefs this week face calls to launch an official inquiry into a series of UFO sightings, including one filmed by a soldier on night patrol, across Britain.
In the Australian incident, a number of people at Marlinja, population 112 and 730km south of Darwin, have described how they saw flashing red lights and a huge boom shatter the still of the outback night last Sunday.
Resident Janie Dixon said: “The sound was horrible.
“We thought it was a jet. I saw what I thought at first was the evening star, the first star you usually see at night.
“But then we saw three red lights in the distance, and the sound kept getting louder.
“The ground felt like it was shaking, so we ran inside and shut the doors.”
Ms Dixon said the UFO hovered above the homes for what seemed like a couple of hours.
She said at one stage the phone rang, but went dead when she tried to answer it.
“Then the light in the house became so bright, it was like we were sitting in a football stadium,” she said.
In Britain, UFO experts believe a number of sightings in south Wales earlier this month are ‘particularly significant’ because they included observations made by the crew of a police helicopter and military personnel.

Corporal Mark Proctor told The Sun newspaper that he witnessed a ‘fleet’ of objects zig-zagging across the sky at about 11pm. See The Sun’s UFO sightings special report
The 38-year-old soldier, a member of the 1st Battalion Irish Regiment, said: ‘I was on duty in the guard room when the other boys outside began shouting.
‘I went out to see what the commotion was about and could see 13 craft in the skies. They were like rotating cubes with multiple colours.’
Former UFO expert at the British ministry of defence Nick Pope said that an inquiry to establish what had been seen by the witnesses was vital.
Mr Pope said: ‘Something quite extraordinary does seem to be going on in British air space at the moment.
‘There has got to be an official inquiry into all this and we need a senior air force officer to take personal charge and oversee the inquiry.’
Radar tapes, as well as footage of the incidents, should be examined as part of the investigation, said Mr Pope, who added: ‘It’s indisputable that something was seen – the very fact that it was seen by military personnel over a military base makes it a national security incident.’
