UFO researcher Mary Rodwell says the Bundaberg region is following a global trend of increased sightings of the mysterious objects.
Ms Rodwell, who lives at Agnes Water, said she was receiving a lot of reports of sightings.
“A lot of people are wary of reporting sightings because of the ridicule factor,” she said.
But she said sightings were being made by several people at once.
“Sometimes they may be witnessed by several members of the same family,” she said.
“There have also been several sightings by people on fishing boats where they’ve all seen the same thing.”
Ms Rodwell said it was impossible to say that all the UFOs spotted were not from Earth.
“We do know that some governments have aircraft that are of unusual shapes,” she said.
Ms Rodwell said many people were reporting objects that were doing unusual manoeuvres, or winking in and out of sight.
