LUMINOUS DISC FLIES OVER CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALAND
On Saturday, July 29, 2000, at 7:25 p.m., Rev. Al Shrimpton and son went out on the back patio of their hillside home in Christchurch, a large city on the North Island of New Zealand, to look at the stars.
"This is a regular occurrence as we both love the stars, and I love teaching him," reported Rev. Al Shrimpton, who works as a private investigator in Christchurch. "Just as we walked to the rear of our house, a bright flash shot across the sky. At first I thought it was sheet lightning, but to our surprise a standard disc-shaped craft flew right over our house and headed towards the port hills."
"My son ran off to his mother, scared out of his wits, but I grabbed my binoculars and, after alerting my wife, we watched the craft do a quick U-turn and fly back in the direction from which it came," adding that the UFO made its approach from the east and headed west, then doubled back eastward again.
"I have seen many UFOs in and around this city and trying to get some good footage for everyone to see. I have been investigating UFOs for 17 years, and it still puzzles me why we cannot get the truth out."
