Strange UFO Sightings Over Didim

Didim became the UFO sighting capital of Turkey when several
people reported seeing strange lights in the skies.

The strange yellowish melon-shaped ball was spotted by the
Police Academy in Yes,ilkent, while regulars at the Ark Cafe
Bar, in Hunters Valley, spotted the same UFO-style lights at
about 9.30pm last Saturday night.

Phil and Lorraine Quibell said they spotted the strange lights
heading towards them but hundreds of metres off the ground as
they walked on the Yesilkent road, close to the police academy
at about 9.30pm.

They described how the melon-shaped object was moving fast and
in a straight line before swerving towards the police academy
direction and towards the sea before disappearing over the

Mr Quibell, aged 52, formerly from Preston, said the object was
a bright sun colour at the top but faded to a yellowish-

it was definitely not a plane.

“It was probably the size of a plane. It is very difficult to
explain it. I only wish I had taken my camera with me. I watched
the object for what seemed a few minutes but may have been only
seconds before it veered away and out to sea.”

Meanwhile, Mark and Alana Weatherall , who were with children
Paige and Josh, had been with friends at the Ark Bar when they
spotted the bright light over the Yes,ilkent area at about the
same time.

Alana said: “It was like a bright light  but nothing like a
plane or a helicopter. It seemed to hover for a number of
seconds and burn like a white ball of light and then it just
faded out altogether.”

Mark added: “What surprised us was that it seemed to go
vertically up from its original position. It was a weird
experience but it definitely wasn’t a plane. It must have been a
