Alien sightings grow in Tweed

IMAGES of an alleged alien in Bilambil Heights have UFO experts scratching their heads.

The footage was captured by Alex Player, detailed by the Tweed Daily News yesterday, and is to be used in a UFO documentary to be released in 2011.

UFO Research New South Wales Incorporated media spokesman Doug Moffett has been researching UFO activity for the past 18 years, and said the footage taken by 16-year-old Alex is inconclusive.

“I'm not saying it is not (an alien), but I cannot say what it could be. Even to say it has a humanoid form could be a stretch,” Mr Moffett said.

“From the height they say it was you have to think that logically what would a small child be doing outside at that time of night with a flashlight.”

Mr Moffett said when it comes to this type of unexplained footage it is important to consider the back-story.

“You have to look at the background of the story as well. From what has been said, it does not appear to be a hoax. You have to look at someone's reason for doing this.”

UFO Research NSW aims to promote a greater understanding of the UFO phenomenon and to investigate and research UFOs with a developed, logical and structured approach.

Unidentified sightings have surrounded the Tweed region in recent years, with residents sighting strange lights and objects in the sky.

Currumbin resident Bill Stafford Junior captured three UFO images on his camera in the sky above Tweed and Currumbin which cannot be explained by Air Services Australia or Amberley Air Base. Tweed men Damien Gundlach and Vern Kicken have also reported seeing a round object high up in the sky while standing on the bank of the Tweed River.
