Crowd saw a UFO in the sky
GREG Le Noel was six years old when he and a crowd of up to 250 people, he said, witnessed an alien spacecraft hovering above an oval in his home town of Tokoroa in New Zealand.
“It was right there in my back yard or close to it, hovering for a long time and lots of people got to see it,'' Mr Le Noel said.
“It was witnessed by a minimum of 250 people and was reported in the newspapers in New Zealand and all over the world.''
Mr Le Noel will speak at the UFO conference in Agnes Water next week, but mainly on the positive effects of electrotherapy as part of the work he does at the Hands on Healing Centre in Agnes Water.
He said while he had not had any UFO sightings since moving to the Discovery Coast he knew several people here who had.
“I didn't have another experience like that until much later when I was in the navy,'' he said. “I saw this thing hovering over the water. I didn't actually see it come up out of the water but I did see it there plain as day. But I haven't seen anything here, but know plenty of people who have seen some pretty strange things right here.''
Mr Le Noel said he had gone back to New Zealand and confirmed what he saw as a child on that night in his home town.
“It triggers a lot of memories when you talk about it,'' he said.
