A UFO report coming out of New Zealand could potentially bring forth multiple eyewitnesses to an unusual sighting near the city of Greymouth. Matthew Robert says he was driving along a road in Greymouth when he came across a dark, automobile-sized object in the middle of the road. As he pulled to the side of the road, the object emitted a blinding light and suddenly lifted into the sky at which time Robert lost all cellphone reception, his vision became blurry, and his eyes watered for about an hour afterwards.
Robert says there were three other cars parked alongside the road which also witnessed the UFO. As Robert explained:
“I was changing a CD as I was driving and when I looked up I saw what looked like a car without its lights on, stopped in the middle of the road outside Shantytown. I slammed on my brakes and my eyes were still trying to focus, when suddenly the thing just lit up and shot into the sky. When I came to my senses I noticed that there were three other cars that had stopped on the other side of the road as well. It’s weird that no one else has come forward because those people obviously would have seen the same thing I did.”
After the incident, Robert drove onward to Greymouth to pick up a coworker, Charlotte Rose, from work at a local hospital. Ms. Rose immediately noted that Robert was visibly shaken.
“I just looked at him and I could tell something bad had happened, he was freaked out and his eyes were watery.”
Mr. Robert said he hoped the witnesses from the other cars would also come forward and confirm what he saw. One vehicle was a Mitsubishi Chariot and another a Honda Accord. He did not have a description of the third vehicle.
“I know people are going to think that it’s crazy, but I know what I saw.”
Greymouth, New Zealand has been somewhat of a hotspot for UFO activity for at least a decade with reports from citizens throughout the area describing orange, red, and green lights moving through the sky, green spheres travelling along the local hills, and metallic discs flying in the area.
