Wycliffe Well UFO stopover
'Don't care what the sceptics say'



Territory UFO hot spot Wycliffe Well is bubbling with excitement
again after a string of sightings in the past eight days. The
latest sighting inspired a group of Queensland UFO chasers "The
Australian UFO Research Network" to visit the remote spot this
week. Lou Farkas, who runs the Wycliffe Well roadhouse, 374klm
north of Alice Springs said most of his staff had seen two UFOs
on March 4th & 5th. Territory-born roadhouse worker Wilma
Bradshaw, 60, said she saw a strange "jellyfish" type light in
the night sky about 8.15pm on March 5th.  She said the
odd-shaped light turned from silver to red and had flowing
tentacles-type underneath it. Around midnight the pervious
night, six staff members were milling about after work when they
spotted a similar shimmering light in the sky.

Tourists also reported strange lights on the horizon four days
ago. Ms Bradshaw said: "It was like a jelly blubber with
tentacles." "It started out as silvery white then faded out and
became a brilliant red in the western sky." "It would go away
then come forward again." "I was with another woman and she
watched it for a few minutes." "I ran inside to get a camera but
when I came back out it was gone."

Ms Bradshaw said: "The UFO sighting and reports came in "fits
and starts." "It will be really quite for a while then all of a
sudden you will see a whole heap of them in a couple of weeks."
Mr. Farkas said he often had terrified tourist rushing into his
roadhouse saying their cars had been followed by UFOs along the
highway. Mr. Farkas said: "We don't promote the fact we get a
lot of UFO sightings _we don't need to. "Word of mouth means
tourist come here to see them for themselves". "But we always
note them down." "We just had a team of UFO Researchers "The
Australian UFO Research Network" from Queensland in here two
days ago. "They has heard about our sighting a couple of weeks
ago and wanted to have a look. "We get UFO 'experts from all
over the world all the time." But he said UFOs were so common he
had become used to the freaky phenomenon. "I've been seeing them
hovering about for years so I'm getting a bit accustomed to them

"I don't care what the sceptics say, they are out there." In
September 1994, Mr. Farkas said he and his staff had seen UFOs
at the roadhouse every night for three weeks. He described the
UFO as a light that appeared in the western sky at the same time
each night and then disappeared further westward.  Mr. Farkas
said sometimes there were two objects, which had red, orange and
green rotating lights, and when they took off, the phone and
EFTPOS machine went 'dead.'


Worker Malcolm White said at the time he thought the light was a
road train with spotlights on. He said, "It was glowing orange
with a bright lights.

" Me White said the object was hanging over the highway and came
500m of him before it took a sharp left turn and shot off into
the sky. As it left the ground, Mr. White's four-wheel drive
mysteriously stopped. The sighting have created intense public
interest, with UFO investigators and other curious people now
streaming to the roads house in their own attempt to catch a
glimpse of the phenomenon.
