Ever spotted something in the skies you can't explain?

GYMPIE region residents are being asked to report their stories about UFO sightings onto a website so Australian researchers can "make sense of them".

Brisbane-based researcher and UFO Research Queensland president Sheryl Gottschall said her organisation had been documenting UFO sightings in Queensland since 1956 and had now begun transferring its records to its website.

So far, sightings going back to 1998 have been uploaded. Earlier ones are still to be transferred.

"We're hoping to bring sightings completely up to date," Ms Gottschall said.

"And we're joining an Adelaide researcher who is compiling a comprehensive list of Australian-wide sightings, including as yet unrecorded ones.

"So we're asking people who have seen UFOs - past or current - to report their experience through our website, www.uforg.asn. au; or via email at info@uforg.asn.au; or they can phone me on (07) 3376 1780."

To view Australian-wide sightings, which may also include local sightings, log onto project1947.com/kbcat/kbmoreintoz.htm.

In a letter printed in The Gympie Times last Wednesday, Ms Gottschall asked locals to report UFO sightings, but has not yet had any new reports, she said.
