THE Gold Coast's UFO community is buzzing after marking a first -- two separate reports of a single sighting. The unidentified flying object was described as a series of red lights in the eastern sky above Mudgeeraba on November 22.

It was reported by a man who spotted it along with his neighbours as the lights moved through the sky for more than 20 minutes before disappearing.

A separate report was also sent to UFO Research Queensland from a Mudgeeraba woman who claimed to have seen the same phenomenon, which performed a series of manoeuvres.

UFO Research Queensland's Sheryl Gottschall said the sightings were important in the search for otherworldly life.

"The two reports from the Mudgeeraba area are significant given they have been corroborated by two independent witnesses which makes their veracity more substantial," she said.

"It is vital for witnesses to feel they are not alone when they have seen something which they have never seen before and cannot explain.

"Witnesses can start to think they are going crazy because they do not understand why they have seen something while no one else has."

Mrs Gottschall said reports were not taken seriously by the Royal Australian Air Force.

"In 1994 the RAAF notified civilian UFO organisations that they would no longer accept reports from the public and would refer witnesses on to organisations like us," she said.

"This has been a completely irresponsible move by the RAAF to pass this workload over to civilian groups who have little funds and resources, are manned by volunteers and as such struggle to meet the needs of the public reporting sightings or close encounters."

The organisation, which started in 1956, keeps a database of sightings dating to the 1990s.

Many sightings reported in the past year have been on the southern Gold Coast, from the Hinterland to Tweed's Banora Point.

Seeing a UFO is a close encounter of the first kind. Physical evidence lifts the rating to the second kind, while contact with a UFO is an encounter of the third kind.
