Angler convinced of UFO sighting

An unidentified flying object in the sky above Squeaking Point
has baffled a Burnie man.

John Walker yesterday said he was now "a believer" unless
someone could explain what he saw.

Mr Walker was fishing alone about 10a.m. on Wednesday when he
saw a grey bullet-shaped object moving across the sky.

"I don't know what you would call it," he said.

" It was about 100 to 150 feet off the ground, (and) the size of
a house.

"I didn't hear a noise.

"It just moved along nice and slow and I probably watched it for
15 minutes, then all of a sudden it disappeared."

Mr Walker said the object had silver spots on it, but no lights.

He said it was a beautiful day, with no wind.

"It definitely wasn't a weather balloon," he said.

"I've seen those before.

"It's out of the ordinary."

Mr Walker said he was usually sceptical about flying saucer
theories, but he planned to report his experience to the
Tasmanian UFO Investigation Centre.

Centre investigator Keith Roberts yesterday said he had not
received any similar reports, but he would like to hear from Mr

Mr Roberts said the nearby Devonport Airport might have some
explanation and checking the area's air traffic movements around
the time of the sighting would be a good place to start.
