SIX UNIDENTIFIED flying objects (UFOs) were sighted and photographed on Tuesday night (November 6) around 11pm by a local resident in Carvoeiro.

Robert Wilkinson, owner of a bar in Carvoeiro, told The Resident: “There were six orange glowing orbs in the sky at around 11pm. These were moving horizontally across the sky in the same direction, when suddenly one changed direction and the other five followed it before disappearing somewhere above the sea”.

Robert Wilkinson said that the distance of the orbs in the sky and their actual size was very difficult to judge, but he was certain that they were moving horizontally and not falling with gravity. The whole episode lasted approximately two minutes.

“I took photographs of the objects because they were unexplainable and silent,” said Robert Wilkinson, adding “I am certain they were not related to fire works or weather balloons”.

The camera used by Robert Wilkinson to photograph the UFO’s was a Sony Cybershot DSC N1 digital camera with a 3x optical zoom.

A spokesman from the Portuguese Air Force said: “We as a military force and government entity do not have a specific department to deal with these sightings. Our radars are only equipped to detect aircraft that enter our airspace but nothing abnormal has been reported within the last 24 hours”. She also said that no reported sighting had reached the Air Force related with the Algarve that night.

Luís Aparício, Director of the Associação de Pesquisa OVNI, the Portuguese UFO association, told The Resident: “UFOs are very common along the Algarve coast, especially between Cape St Vicent and Sines. Fishermen report many sightings of UFOs in the area”.

Luís Aparício also said that many objects disappear in land especially around Odiáxere, which is believed to have something underground that attracts UFOs.
