Dash-cam captures 'UFO' flying in the night sky in the NT

A mysterious light filmed flying through the night sky on dash-cam just south of Darwin has stumped the couple who saw it.

Astro-photographer’s Paul and Sylvia Mayo told the NT News they were mystified by the strange phenomenon they had captured on film as they left a service station at Berrimah.

When it happened they didn’t think much of it, however as Mr Mayo went back through the footage he thought the light going at an unusually fast speed was quite bizarre.

“I’m baffled, and I’m not usually baffled by anything,” he told NT News.

“In my 30 years of taking photos of galaxies and star clusters, you might see the odd jet but this is, to me, probably moving a lot faster.”

The video was filmed on June 12, 2015 at 1am as Mr Mayo left the service station.

Out of nowhere a light flies past from the left at incredible speed.

Mr Mayo captured stills from the footage and zoomed in on them.

“It looked like a string of coloured pearls shooting through the sky,” he said.

He did consider the light could be a reflection off his windscreen however he dismissed the theory as it was moving too fast and there were other reflections shown on the camera.

“That thing in the video is going along the tree tops in a straight line,” he said.

He welcomed anyone who could provide him with an explanation as to what the light actually was.
