Joshua Thompson snapped a photo of what appears to be a UFO near his Douglas home.
The truth is out there for a young Townsville doctor-in-training who believes he has photographic evidence of a UFO chasing a large flock of birds.
James Cook University medical student Joshua Thompson, 20, was driving to his home at Riverside Gardens in Douglas on Tuesday about 6pm when he spotted thousands of small black birds flying over the Ross River towards the Palmetum gardens, as he went past the bridge.
"I've never seen anything like that before in Townsville," he said.
"I thought that looked a bit cool."
He took a photograph on his iPhone 5 and, when later examining the picture, he noticed two strange, small saucer-shaped objects in the sky.
In one of the photos, there is a clear burst of yellow light in the shape of a disc, with six small lights in the sky.
"The six small lights really weirded me out," he said.
"You can see them really clearly in this ring type of thing."
There also appears to be a black shadow behind the unknown object, and another object above it, seemingly flying away.
