A MELBOURNE man has captured footage of what he claims to be another UFO hovering across the city skyline. The three-minute clip was recorded as the UFO hovered over Carlton Gardens last night.

Tod, who did not want his surname published, said he captured the footage on his phone after he first saw the object about 9.30 pm.

Other witnesses have reported seeing it as early as 7.30 pm. Tod said the object left the Carlton Gardens area about 11 pm, flying past the Immigration Museum.

“It was moving like no other flying object that I'm aware exists, and it was displaying amazing patterns of lights that looked something like a light show display in the sky,” he said.

“I was on Lygon St when I first saw it then I walked up to Carlton Gardens, there were a whole bunch of other people saw it as well,” he said.

Astronomical Society of Victoria spokesman Perry Vlahos said it was unlikely the object was anything extraordinary.

“Something that has been around that long and not seen by astronomers is probably unlikely to be anything odd,” he said.

“The fact it was in the sky for that long probably indicates it was something not too unusual." Mr Vlahos said members of the ASV had not reported anything unexpected.

“The ASV has hundreds of members - many are looking into the sky with large telescopes every clear night from various locations around the state, including Melbourne, and none of them have reported seeing anything unexpected,” he said.

But other witnesses have described seeing other UFOs in the area.

Carlton resident Penny De La Soyo said she was shocked after seeing a “weird formation” of lights from the balcony of her 9th floor apartment. Ms De La Soyo said the formation passed her home about 10.15 pm.

“Eight orange lights in a weird formation came up over the horizon, then their formation changed a bit, one disappeared and then others did,” she said.

“It all lasted about a minute. I know it wasn’t a plane or helicopter.

“The lights were orange, they weren’t flashing like lights on a plane,” she said.Ms De LA Soyo said she had tried to “be logical” about the sighting, but said it was unlike anything she had seen before.

The sightings comes less than a week after a western suburbs man captured an eight minute video of a fast-moving disc-shaped object descending and ascending high above his Albanvale house.

The man, known only as Ivan, said a neighbour called him outside to witness the spectacle, both looking on in astonishment.

"I have dismissed a lot of things thinking of what it could be," Ivan said.

"But I am left with very little other than to think it is something unearthly."

Ivan said the object lingered in the sky for around an hour and changed colour - switching between green, red and blue - and for several seconds at a time disappeared.
