       January 20 -- Wellington, New Zealand -- Several eyewitnesses, including airport officials, saw a large, yellow disc moving over Wellington toward Island Bay. The UFO was said to have descended on the bay near the Stretch of Cook.

       The local police said the object was visible from the coast by means of binoculars, but that the sea was too rough to send a boat to investigate. A witness who lived near the coast claimed that the UFO had burst into flames shortly before its descent.
