AUSTRALIA (SEVEN NETWORK/CNN) - A rare albino whale resurfaced off the eastern coast of Australia this week.

The whale's name is Migaloo and he's been spotted around Sydney for the third time.

He swims by on his annual migration route.

Researchers say there are only a handful of albino humpbacks like Migaloo.

Spotters first saw him around 1991, they say he's in his 20s now.
