THEY are back.
After a spate of sightings of unidentified flying objects
in the skies above the Katherine region throughout 2010 and 2011
, a Katherine man now claims that UFOs are back in the region - and he is not the only one.
On Thursday Katherine South resident Dennis Mangan spotted two red and green clusters of light in the sky above the Victoria Highway.
Mr Mangan said he was mesmerised by what he believes was a UFO.
"I have no doubt something odd was going on," Mr Mangan said.
"I have never seen anything quite like it," he said.
"Blinking red and green clusters of light hovering in the sky.
"They didn't make a sound."
Another witness, Katherine woman Archana Poudel, 26, said it was about 7.30pm when she spotted the "strange lights" in the sky above the Victoria Highway.
