AN eagle-eyed Ipswich cameraman has captured a strange craft hovering in the night sky, which poses the question - who or what is in our night sky?

The footage, showing a silver craft spinning and flashing a multitude of colours, was filmed over Ipswich in April.

The clip follows the UFO's flight for seven minutes and shows the unidentified object against the dark night sky.

A spokesman for the Ipswich UFO Group believes the clip is genuine, and what was filmed was definitely in the sky above Ipswich.

But he was unsure exactly of what the craft could be.

"The images look like they are real, in the sense that it was an actual object in the night sky. I don't think it is a fake," the spokesman said.

Sightings in Ipswich number only a handful a year.

"It is difficult to put a figure on the number of sightings over Ipswich, as it depends on the witness reporting the sighting to someone, or not at all," he said.

"It has been my experience that sightings over Ipswich are usually just unusual lights in the sky."

Sightings of aircraft are few and far between.

"I can't recall a sighting of an actual craft for many years, if at all. I know there have been a couple of people report an actual solid craft-like object back in the 1950s and 1960s," he said.

One Ipswich resident who says she has had a close encounter is Rita Haden.

She says sightings of craft are common around Ipswich, with reports of mysterious objects spotted in Anstead, Karana Downs and Laidley earlier this year.

She said most people were interested by her own experience near the One Mile Hotel in 1992.

"The majority of people are pretty good. They are intrigued by it," she said.
