UFO Reported On Waikato Farm
Geoff Taylor

A new Waikato UFO sighting was unveiled at an international
conference in Rotorua in September.

UfocusNZ, featured by the Waikato Times in July, is an
organisation which catalogues and researches UFO sightings.

Founder Suzanne Hansen of Tauranga and Hamilton air traffic
controller Graeme Opie both spoke at the Future Perspectives
conference, attended by about 200 delegates. They presented
examples of their research including a new sighting at Waitetuna
Valley, east of Raglan, on March 26.

A couple said they saw a UFO moving up a valley on their farm,
at 8 a.m. on a fine morning. Interviewed separately, both
described the craft as about 30m long, cylindrical with pointed
ends, a bright metallic silver with evenly spaced oval-shaped
windows. The object had horizontal wings.

According to UfocusNZ's notes "they commented on how shiny it
looked in the morning sun as it moved slowly and silently up the
valley before disappearing behind hills".

The description was very similar to a report from three
witnesses in Whitianga in 2003 and other sightings around the
same time at Thames, Coroglen, Coromandel Peninsula and Mercury

Hansen says there were some brilliant speakers at the

Most controversial was American podiatrist Roger Leir who claims
to have removed alien implants from humans.

News media reports from Rotorua suggested some delegates were
sceptical about the presentation, particularly a video which
didn't show much detail.

Leir, who has written four books on alien implants and claims to
have removed 13 extra-terrestrial implants from humans, refused
to speak to the news media.

Hansen described the reporting as "negative" and says she warned
Leir New Zealand audiences were very sceptical.

"He's a very genuine person and he's made a very big step to
come out publicly."

Hansen says there is a New Zealand woman who believes she has a
similar implant and may be flown to the US to see Leir.

Another speaker was Mary Rodwell, principal of the Australian
Close Encounter Resource Network, who suggests humans are being
genetically upgraded.

She has researched "star children" or "indigo kids" with
extraordinary abilities. The suggestion is that aliens have
manipulated their genes.

Another speaker, Nick Begich, talked of a joint US Navy and
Airforce project in Alaska to manipulate weather patterns for
military purposes.

Hansen says as a result of the conference, reputable
international organisations will link in more with UfocusNZ.

The organisation now has more awareness overseas and an
interview she recently gave for an international UFO research
website received 480,000 internet hits.

Hansen says the organisation wants to visit the South Island to
spread word about its work.

She says there is far less reporting of UFO research in the New
Zealand news media than overseas.

"I don't know why we don't see more of this in the news media.
This is something that concerns us all. If there's something in
the sky, shouldn't we be looking at who it is?

"I think New Zealanders seem to feel quite threatened by it. But
when you do a bit of digging you find an enormous amount of
people who want to talk to you quietly about it."
