Her first sighting a few weeks ago was around 8pm and about 8kms from Glen Innes on the Emmaville Road.
“When I first saw the light I initially thought it was a car with very bright lights and it seemed to be about ¾ of a kilometre in front of me. As I got closer to it just suddenly disappeared.
“I thought it strange but didn’t give it much thought until I saw the lights again, this time a little later at night and from the rear.
“Again very bright lights, a little further north of the last sighting, around Rummerys Hill.
“Again they just suddenly disappeared.”
Ms Lear only decided to report her sightings after she had a conversation with her hairdresser about the odd lights and was told that a couple of truck drivers had mentioned similar experiences.
“One of the drivers initially thought what he was looking at was a shooting star.
“If I’m not the only one seeing these lights then I believe they could be UFOs.
“I’ve never felt frightened, I just find it really interesting and wondering if anyone else has had a similar encounter along that road.”
Ms Lear reported her sighting to the Aviation Department’s UFO Research Centre and after a quick google discovered that a report had been lodged from Emmaville with the UFO Research Queensland in 2001.
It stated that on October 9 a man and his son were fossicking when they saw a big light coming over the trees on the horizon. Twenty seconds later it was over the top of them, and then disappeared.
It was glowing white hot like a search light. It was much brighter than the evening star and 4 to 5 times larger.
We would be interested in hearing from anyone with similar experiences. Who knows, there may something out there, watching!
