THREE station workers and three backpackers have been left stunned after witnessing strange lights flying over a remote station in the NT outback.
Ray Aylett, Normie Hooker and Alan “Doc” McIntosh were sitting on their pergola at Muckaty Station with three European backpackers when a bright light appeared.
Mr Aylett, 58, said they were all stunned by the bizarre sighting. “This strange light was coming straight for us, over the house,” he said. “We all walked outside and were watching it come towards us, then it went straight east and faded out.” Mr Aylett, who has lived at the station north of Tennant Creek for eight years, said he couldn’t believe his eyes as the bright light approached on a Thursday night two weeks ago.
“This thing was strange,” he said.
“I have never seen anything like it.” “Normie and Doc had never seen anything like it either, and those backpackers, they were in shock.” “I was sitting there watching for a couple of minutes.” “You could see it coming towards us but it wasn’t a plane.”
“It made no noise – you couldn’t hear anything.” Mr Aylett said there was no way their judgement could have been affected by alcohol. … He said the light returned the next night, this time coming from the other direction. “One bloke went out with a pair of binoculars and said it just turned and went east,” he said. – ntnews
