Track attracts UFOs

By Paul Dyer

The UFO capital of the Northern Territory is expecting an increase in sightings when track laying on the Alice Springs-Darwin railway begins again next week.

Wycliffe Well, a small roadside stop about 1100km south of Darwin on the Stuart Highway, is famous for its frequent UFO sightings.

ADrail track laying will proceed south of Tennant Creek on Monday, with one camp situated near Wycliffe Well.

Wycliffe Well store manager Lew Farkas said he was expecting UFO sightings to increase when work begins.

"Mid-year we get a lot more sightings purely because there are a lot more people wandering around in the night," he said.

"But in the summertime now there is hardly anybody around. With the workers here it is a matter of more people around so there are more chances of seeing things."

Mr Farkas said when ADrail workers were in the area last March sightings increased dramatically. Mr Farkas, who has lived at Wycliffe Well for 18 years, said UFO sightings by staff and tourists were common.

"I just had a Japanese TV film crew out here a few days ago," he said.

"They had a sighting so they went back happy."
