We Are Not Alone

By Victoria O'Hara

Strange lights spotted hovering in the Co Down night sky could
be aliens carrying out a surveillance of the Earth - a
paranormal expert has claimed.

Betty Meyler, president of the UFO Society of Ireland, made the
suggestion that we are not alone after a number of residents in
Bangor spotted a series of mysterious orange lights in the sky
last weekend.

Air traffic control at Belfast International Airport said it had
received reports about the sightings, including one from the

However, the airport said it had no record of any aircraft in
the sky at the time.

Ms Meyler, who founded the organisation in 1996, told the

Northern Ireland.

"We believe these extra terrestrials are doing a surveillance of

"Usually what happens is that only one or two people see it and
then they don't always come forward as they are afraid of being
laughed at, but I think this needs to be taken very seriously."

Ms Meyler said UFO sceptics do not bother her in trying to learn
about alien life forms.

"Look what they did to Galileo when he said the earth was round
and everyone else said it was flat," she said.

"He was taken up for heresy. So anything new is always laughed
at and ridiculed, so I'm used to it, it doesn't bother me. I
just feel that I am right.

"I think it is my job to educate other people to think the way
I'm thinking."
