A couple have had a bizarre UFO encounter on Auckland beach, the couple say they were walking along Karekare beach on Sunday 31st March when strange lights appeared in the sky.
“We were on the beach, my boyfriend and I, and saw two bright orange/red lights far on the other end of the beach,” the woman wrote on Reddit. “In a matter of seconds, one of the lights started moving at full speed, in a straight line, no more that 200m above the water until [it was] directly in front of us.”
“The UFO had changed from having a red light to a bright white light… shining directly at us. We presumed that it was a helicopter with a spotlight, but there was no sound at all coming from it.”
“After about 2 minutes (or what I think, we could not tell time at this point) it moved away very quickly, flying incredibly fast and with perfect precision, until disappearing behind a mountain.”
The second object moved in a similar fashion before also disappearing in to the distance. Little did the couple know however that this would not be the end of their close encounter.
“We were lying down looking at the stars for a while and then stood up to leave, before realizing there were five [objects] surrounding us in different areas of the beach,” the woman wrote.
“One of them was flying up and down and another from side to side. The others were just still switching between red and white spotlights.”
“This was when we decided to leave, scared ****less.”
After the sighting the couple fled the beach, this sighting remains unexplained.
