UFO? Strange Lights In Cardwell Video

Cardwell is on full UFO alert following sightings of strange
lights in the night sky above the sleepy seaside village. Local
businessman Greg Smith said he and his son watched the lights
for 15 minutes and are convinced that what they saw  was some
sort of UFO.

"This was a couple of months ago. I used to be the world's
biggest sceptic about this stuff, but I'll tell you what, this
really rattled me and my son", he said.

Mr Smith said they watched the lights from the front of the
Lyndoch Motel on the highway towards the northern end of the

"There were two large orange lights. There was no beam and no
noise. It was absolutely silent and they were moving slowly
across the sky towards the north-west. We couldn't tell if the
lights were from one or two machines. At first we thought they
were over buildings between the highway and the beach, but other
people said they were just out over the water", he said.

Mr Smith said he thought it must have been one or two
helicopters, but discounted the possibility due to the fact
there was no noise.

"And the lights were orange and there was no beam. Navigation
lights on aircraft are green and red and they flash on and off .
These were orange and they didn't flash", he said.

Cardwell resident Phil Mulley and his wife Helen saw the lights
on two consecutive nights.

"The first night there was just one light and it was very
bright. It was about 7.30pm. We thought it was a chopper coming
up the channel. It was travelling at about 45 degrees to the
horizon. We watched it for a few minutes and then it disappeared
in cloud. The next night my sister rang me and said to look
outside. I went and looked and there were two lights. We watched
them for a while until they disappeared in cloud", he said.

Mr Mulley said he knew of at least six or seven people who saw
the lights.

"The lights were bright orange and there was no sound
whatsoever", he said.

President of UFO Research Queensland Sheryl Gottschall said she
could not say what the lights were, but added she had no qualms
in saying there were extraterrestrials which visited earth from
time to time.

"I've been with this organisation for 25 years and in that time
I've spoken to 3000 people who have seen strange lights and
objects and to another 600 to 700 who have had close
encounters", she said.

She said two brothers fishing in the Hinchinbrook Channel in
1995 contacted her to report a sighting of six UFOs in the
Fishers Creek area south of Cardwell.

Hinchinbrook region UFO sightings

The recent sightings have not been the first glimpses of UFO
activity near Cardwell reported to the President of UFO Research
Queensland Sheryl Gottschall.

In 1995 two brothers contacted her to report a sighting of six
UFOs in the Fishers Creek area south of Cardwell. This is an
edited version of the report sent to her from the brothers:

"On May 13 1995 my brother 'D' and I were fishing between
Hinchinbrook and Haycock Island. We had a flat battery and had
to paddle our 4.2 metre boat back to Fishers Creek, arriving at

"We could not reach the boat ramp due to tidal rips. 'D' saw six
UFOs about 30 feet in diameter disappear behind the hill at the
mouth of Deluge Creek.

"Due to the angle of the boat I couldn't see them, however later
I saw lights over the mangroves through a fog."

The writer then described in detail about how a rectangular fog
5m wide by 2.5m high came towards them from Deluge Creek 1.5km
away. He said the fog was white with a black strip running
horizontally along the top. He described how another rectangular
'fog' came at them from Sandstone Creek, 3km away. The fogs were
of different colours, but were uniform in shape. At one stage he
said he saw what appeared to be a black fish in the fog "then a
black lizard like animal with no feet and then a second and
third lizard".

"During the whole ordeal we couldn't move and we were at their
mercy. It was with great relief that we had survived. I tried to
connect mentally with whatever the force might have been but did
not receive any signals", the writer told Ms Gottschall.
