UFO sightings in Waikato skies | Stuff.co.nz: "Strange lights have been illuminating Waikato skies and some residents are pinning it on UFO activity. But astronomers say more mundane meteors or man-made objects are to blame.
North Hamilton man Adrian Kilpatrick is convinced he and his wife Kathryn saw a unidentified flying object above his Woodridge home last Saturday night.
When he first saw it, at around 6.30pm, Mr Kilpatrick, a long-time believer in UFOs, thought it was a light plane coming into land.
'But then it looked like the plane was on fire, like the engines were glowing orange,' he said, adding that the object's absolute silence had made him wonder further of its origins.
He estimated the object was flying around the height a small aircraft might fly and appeared less than two kilometres north of their house."
