SOMETHING that could not be explained was spotted over Tweed Heads South last week. Tweed Heads South resident Rick Whitley was taking some photos of sun rays bursting through clouds when he captured something unusual.

Mr. Whitley noticed two dark objects in one of his photographs. They appeared close together in the distance and were snapped over Tweed Heads South.

"I didn't notice it when I took the photo," Mr. Whitley explained.

"It was only just after when I was looking at the photo that I noticed it."

Mr. Whitley said while he was always a skeptic of UFOs, he couldn't explain the objects in his photo.

"I have never seen them before so I'm not a believer.

"I thought it might have been birds."

He later dismissed that theory, realizing that they would have to be very large birds to be able to be seen that far away in the distance.

A shot taken of the same scene only a few minutes earlier did not have the mysterious objects in it.

"I was excited to show the family and mates at work," he said.

"About 70% of the people are convinced.

"One fella at work is into that sort of thing and he was impressed."

Springbrook Mountain Extraterrestrial Response Force is an organization looking to make contact with extraterrestrial life and has a keen interest in UFO sightings.

According to the organizationís website, Springbrook Mountain, close to the border of Queensland and NSW, is one of Australia's No.1 destinations for UFO sightings and alien encounters.

"There were no reports of a UFO sighting reported to us last Sunday," a spokeswoman for the group said yesterday.
