A CABOOLTURE man has reported multiple sightings of Unidentified Flying Objects just 2km out from the main town centre.

Josh Philip, of Broadway Court, claims he saw two UFOs, one on January 5 near his home and another on January 30 flying over nearby Toohey Street.

Mr Philip decided to speak out in the hope others may be able to corroborate the sightings.

The first sighting, he said, was of a bright white light travelling much slower and lower than a normal plane.

"It was so smooth and silent, just gliding through the air," he said.

In the second sighting, Mr Philip said a similar light was travelling northwest before making a sudden 40-degree turn and then disappearing.

"I can't explain it, it was awesome and I hope I see some more," he said.

Maps provided by Australia's air traffic controller Airservices showed the Caboolture area was a main thoroughfare for aircraft travelling to Caboolture, Redcliffe and Brisbane airports.

A spokeswoman said Airservices did not routinely log reports of unexplained air traffic activity or strange lights.

Mr Philip said the look and movement of the lights he saw were different to normal planes. He reported both cases to UFO Research Queensland, a group that logs sightings and holds monthly UFO discussion groups at Kenmore Library, Kenmore.

The group's president, Sheryl Gottschall, said reports of UFO sighting were difficult to explain without other witnesses and photographs. She said UFORQ helped support people who had seen something unusual or had a close encounter.

"It's really important they get the support they need until they can come to terms with something that shakes up their world view," she said.

To report sightings to UFORQ, phone 3376 1780 or email info@uforq.asn.au
