UFO filmed over Gold Coast skies


An unidentified flashing object seen flying over the Gold Coast has been filmed by baffled residents convinced they were being visited upon by extra-terrestrials.

Chevron Island resident Jack Purcell and his mother captured the UFO as it flew in the skies about their house on Thursday night.

“We were all just sitting out the front and my mum pointed to the sky and said ‘look at that colourful plane flying over’,” Mr Purcell said.

“Then it came to a sudden stop and was just hovering there. So I ran inside and grabbed my video camera.”

After notifying authorities, Mr Purcell said the police would “call it in” and sent over a near-by helicopter for a closer look.

However, police were not able to get a proper visual on the UFO because every time they flew in it “would turn its lights off and disappear,” said Mr Purcell who admits he has become more open-minded about the mystery.

“It was really strange. I was quite sceptical of these things but it just blew my mind.”

A police spokeswoman said there were no helicopters in the area and believe the UFO was most likely some sort of small drone aircraft.

“Police believe it is a radio controlled device that was flying in the area and not a UFO,” the spokeswoman said.

“If it was anything larger it would have been picked up by the air control radars.”

But Mr Purcell is convinced the truth is still out there.

“I’ve seen drone choppers and they’re not that big whereas this thing was huge”.
