I am forwarding for your information a copy of a report of the sighting of unusual aerial phenomena by !~r . A. Io, . Wishart , at \'looroloo, on 19th August , 1958.

lY . A.

Dear Sir , Having noticed an object in the sky this All , which I could not identiry I am writing or it in case some- one else saw it. At 10 past 10 a.m. I had been watching Vampitâ&#x20AC;˘e Jets and although there was a Jet noise but faint in the air I glanced up in the hopes of spotting it , I anw what I f'irst thought was a whitish object like a table tennis ball , several hundred feet up moving rapidly. I fu~ly expected it to disappear behind the trees on the edge of the clearing where I was standing but it didn ' t , it just faded in the sky as the distance got too great and it was then that I realized it was at a terrific height but the speed it tr~velled has prompted me to write this . I would say it had the speed of 3 times the jets, that is a rough estimate I know, but having watched them flying and diving there is at least time to call anyone to have a look, with this there wasn ' t . The direction it

~lew

was

East

to West . I have given it a lot of thought as to whether it could have been a Vampire or same accountable reason but it was almost directly overhead to start ldth and the shape didn â&#x20AC;˘ t appear to change at any time while it was visible. Yours .faithfully,

Signed:

(; . F . Wishart)

REPORT ON

AERIAL 0 BJECT OBSERVED

1. On Thursday 8th May, 1958 in company with A216306 Sgt. Sheppard, E. P. , of this Section, I interviewed Mrs. Constance MacDonald, Housewife, at her place of residence No. 5 Neville Street, Oatley, ~ew South Wales, in reference to the sighting, by herself, of an unidentified flying object on the morning of 25th March, 1958. 2. When questioned regarding the sighting or the objeet Mre. MacDonald stated that she first sighted the object at 02eo hours on 25th March, 1958. The object was in eight tor about (3) three minutes, at t1ret it appeared to be directly overhead in the vicinity of the milky way, where it remained tor a very short period, then it dropped tqward the horizon travelling in a North to South direction. tt was travelling slowly at first and then inorea8td to a great rate or speed.

I

â&#x20AC;˘

3. In the course ot the interview rs. NacDonald spoke in a very excited manner and conetantley repeated herself as to the object being a glorious spectacle of a heavenly body Ln the milky way. Throughout the interview Mrs. MacDonald would return to this manner or speech always extolling the lrtue or the glorious eight she had seen. At the conclusion ot the interview Mrs . ~acDonald inrormed the investigators that abe had toraeen their visit, aa she had read in her eacup that the Kings Heralds were coming to see her.

~

4. It 1e considered by the investlsators that the object sighted by thie woman could have been a falling star.

R&PORT ON AERIAL OBJECT OBSERVED 1.

On , ednesday 9th April 1958, accompanied by A25298

F. Sgt. NEAL, . • J. or this Section, I interviewed ~r . R. V. GAIST at hie home, 33 Beach Road, Dulwlch Hill, in rerereoce to hie sighting of 80 uoideot1t1ed flying obJect to the Northbridge, Caetlecrag area, on the morning or 6th April 1958. 2.

llr. Geist, 80 Ass latent Televt.si.oo Proaucer at A. B. N. Leonarda. He appears to be e ~ery level- headed mao end not .ooe who would imagine things. He stated the~ he has sighted unidentified objects betore, particularly one in August 1957. However this is the first time he has reported e sighting. (Our 20/98/AIR dated 7th August 1957, refers to e sighting report on t.he 2nd August 1957, by Mr. G. VINEY and J.ass H. .IHITE or Metre ville. ) S~udi.o,

s~.

3. Nhen questioned regarding the position of the object, Mr. Geist said he first sighted it at 0300 hours travelling slowly in en easterly direction rrom hie position at Ceetlecreg. Vhi.let proceeding to hie home by car, Wr. Geist said the object wee continually sighted end wee still evident at 0410 hours on the same dey. 4. Mr. W. TULLOCH, Public Relatione Ot.ficer for .De-Havilland Aircraft Co., Benkstown, who was with Mr. Geist at the time of sighting , agreed with the latter's statement as to the movement end elevation of the object but claimed that it was star shape end not cigar shape as previously stated by Mr. Geist. 5. The ~esther Bureau was contacted end rrom the information received it appears th~t the object sighted wee not connected with the operations of this Department.

I haTs to report baTi»g made inquiries at Pilga, Spear Hill and Hillside Station relat1Te to the explosions beard by 1Ucbard Joseph WEBBER aDd party at the Fibre Q.ueen Mine on the 4th of July, 1957• None ot tb8 people interviewed could giTe an eye wi tneaa account of the incident, but Ur. James Jackson DOUGHTt of Pilga Station stated that be saw the tlaeb while lying in bed and went out and aaw a glow in the sky' dne west of P1laa, and be also heard a rambliDB noise which followed the glow. The people at Hillside also

hea~

the OOise and saw

a light while sitting in the kitchen at Hilleide and when

they went out to illY'eatigate they saw a glow in the sky north west of Hillside. All persona deacr1bed the light as very bright greenish colour.

Wi~

a

The light and nash was heard by Kennath John PEARSON when he was employed at the Coongan Lead Mina and he gave the direction from the Coongan Lead Mine ae south west.

On the 4th Ju~ inst. Richard Josel)h WEBBER , Manager of the Fibre Queen Asbestos MiDB situated about 126 miles south east of Port Hedlaild renorted over the pedal radio that at about 9. 30 p.m. the pmioua eTen1ns he had heal"d a loud explosion followed by a nmnber of smaller explosiona which aame from a location north east of the mine. ImDediatel;y a!"terwarda he saw a very b right green lilht directly overhead light up the whole of the alq . After the explosions he heard a loud noise which sounded like the motor o~ a truok mis-firing and a:tter about thirty seconds it ceased â&#x20AC;˘ .Attar reporting the incident, WEBBER agreed to investigate further and later that da;y made a searoh in the locali t;y from which the explosion appeared to hsve been but With negative result. He has s1noe made a :t'ttrther searoh but has found nothing to indicate what may have caused the explosions aD1 light. The countl'J in this area ia particularl.7 rough end to investigate thoroughly would take sane considerable time. The DepartmeJrt of C1Til Aviation at this centN reported no planes in the area at the time, aDd aocordiDg to WEBBER there are no proepeotol'B in the immediate vicini t;y of the explosion. Further inquiries here reTeal that at about the time and date mentioned R1chal"d HOUGHTON, a messenger bo;y employed by the P.Jd.O . Department at Port HedlaD1 had seen a long gree light travelling high up in the sky coming from the direction' of the Fibre Queen Kina . He deaoribed the light similarly ~ to WEBBER and saw it for several. seoonda before it oompletell.y disappeared. !Onal.d Jaok W~R an employee of the Fibre Queen Wine also heard the explosions and saw the light as also did two other employees, Vincent FLYNN and Frederick THORNBASCHER. When WE.BBBR aDd WAT.JCim visited Port Hedlalld, statements were obtained from them and are attached hereto. Intonn.ation is to hand here that the residents at Hillside Station in the Marble Bar aub-d1str1ot ha'f'e also heard these explosions but it is not known if they saw any light or obaert'ed e.D1'thing t'urther and it is suggested that :further inquiries be made 1n this d1 reotion. Please hBYe 1nqu1riea made at Hillside Station.

-COPY RONALD JACK WAI.KER. states :I am 28 7ea1'B o~ age and am e111pl07ed at the Fibre Queen Aabestos Mine as a miner. The Fibre Queen Mine ie about tit'teen miles east ot Woodatook Station, Tia Port Hedla.nd.

I haTe been working at the Fibre Queen:tbr about siX weeks . On Wednesday night, 3/7/57, I was in bed in a tent near the mine about 9 o ' clock when I heard an explosion. It was a ~airl7 loud explosion and tor a while I thought the magazine had exploded so I went outside to iDVest1gate. As soon as I got outside my tent I saw a brilliant green light in the sky. It appeared to be stationary tor a tew aeooDds and then appeared to moTe ott in an easterl7 direction.

a noise like the sound and ae the light got :rurther away the noise died away too. When the light began to move

ot a motor truck, started at the same

tt.me

The light seemed to go right out ot eight then and we thought that it was a jet plane. We could still hear the noise, like a motor, ~or about two mlnutes atter the light had gone. There was four ot us at the mine at the time and n all saw the light and heard the explosion and then the noise which sounded like a motor. There was Dick WEBBER, Vince FLYNN, Pre<Uly THORNBASCHER and llJfSelt. Dick WEBBER Ia the manager ot the mine and the other two work there. We all got: the impression that it had been a jet plane or a rocket. We did not think that it wae a meteor because ot the noise which seemed to aocomp&QY it. The next day Diok WEBBER went out in the utility and had a look aroU.Dd in case it had been a plane and had

crashed or something. I also went out, in a ditterent direction, and had a look around but oould find notb1I:8 unusual. There bad been no planes around darillg that we did not hear &DTthing else that night.

~

aD1

The oD17 other person who I know to be in that area is Ji..DID3' TOOD, a prospector. After the loud explosion which I heard on Wednesday night there were several smaller ones, like a rwmbling noise. This could have been the echos trom the hills ot the tirst explosion. This statement is true and correct to the best ot tDf knowledge and beliet. (sgd.) W. WALKER. Witness:

-COPY RICHARD JOSEPH WEBBER

states:-

I am tne manager o~ the Fibre Queen Asbestos Kine, which ia 126 miles south east o~ Port HedJ.and. On the night o~ 3rd July 1957, I waa in a hut near the mine when suddenly a TB1'7 bright light lit up the whole area. It was then about 10 p.m.

I rushed a utaide and just as I did so a loud explosi on ocourred and it was ~ollowed by &eYeral small er explosions . !'he explosions oame t'rom a position north eaat o~ the mine. A~ter I first notioed the liiht and got outside the hut the light was at ill in the alcy. It was a very bright and a greenish o olour. It seemetd to be d1 reotly above uâ&#x20AC;˘.

There was three others at the mine at the time and they all saw the light and heard the exploaiona. A~ter the explosions we heard a noise begin wbioh sounded like the motor o~ a truok. It seemed to be misfiring and ~er about hal~ a minute it stopped altogether. My impression o~ the event was that acmetb1ng had blown up and disintegrated.

The day a fier the light aDd the explosions I went out and~ rom a high hill had a look over the surround1Dg area but~ view waa limited and oould see nothiDg unusual . The ~ollowing weekend I spent another day looking around in the hope of ~idniDg something which would give some 1ndioation of what had happened and what it had been. However I found nothing unusual in the looali ty ~rom which the noises and the light appeared to c au. This statement was g iven voluntarily by aeand is true and oorreot to the beat or lll.Y knowle~â&#x20AC;˘ and belie~. (agdo) Wi tnesa : Laufte T. Keown.

Attached are four (4) reports of the "Tasmania sighting" on 27th Septemoer , 1957 . 2. These reports have not been submitted on the normal pro- formae-but I think they are all reasonably complete anyway. Should you require a re-submission, please let me know . 3. I have requested D. C. A. to subLit all future sightings of t his nature on the pro- forma as this method is the most desirable one , both from an efficiency and an economy viewpoint .

hERIAL OBJ"ECT

(P.G. METZLER) Wing Coomander for Air Officer Commanding


C0 P X 'Wai tara' Tambar Springs

9 Dec . Dear Sir, I don't quite know to whom to write this letter but it contains information which might be very important . I've always laughed & scoffed at reports of strange objects in the sky & have always thought that there must be some good explanation for it. However on Friday 7 Dec. at about 12. 15 p . m. on a beuutiful sunny morning with just a solitary cloud in the sky my sister-in-l~w and I saw the queerest sight. I was inside the house feeding my young son when we heard the sound of a jet going ove r. Marie , my sist er-in-law, went outside to watch it when she called me to see "The Flying Saucer" . I might add we didn ' t see the jets which I understand were high up and leaving contrails behind them and they didn ' t loiter but kept going and were out o! sight very quickly . My first impression of the object was that it was a huge clump of thistledown but as the object dropped lower, it started whirling all in its own space & appeared to turn over several times while still whirling . Marie and I distinctly s~w the sun shining on plane wings a couple o! times . When the object reached its lowest point it w~sn't very high in the sky & we had a perfect view of it . It stayed in the one spot then & continued whirling at a tremendous speed & at this point I noticed a ring around the object, like around the planet Saturn . Marie went inside to ring the local policeman up but he was away and I watched the object for well over 5 minutes while it stayed in the one spot & then it started floating upwards very quickly & another smaller edition appeared out of nowhere & floated off in another direction. I did not watch it but followed the first object . It floated straight up, very high, & stayed motionless & I noticed half~ dozen white dots all around it and then it took off in a straight line for about i a minute & then went straight up into the only cloud in the sky Wld disappeared . That is all I can tell you and quite realise you will find it hard to believe but Harie and myself are quite reliable witnesses & we definitely saw what I described. Actually it is very hard to write about . We have not told any newspupers as we saw no point in it . The way I see it, one would have to see the object to really believe it . One o! my little girls saw it & she described it as a "white saucer" . Yours sincerely, FLORA HAYNE .

Mr. F. MUlrooney, Secretary for Air , Air Depe.rtment, Victoria Barr acks , MELBOURNE. Dear la . Kul.rooney, ~ father baa a~ggeated I should write you in regard to the reoent inauguration in Melbourne of the Victorian Branch ot The Australian Flying Sa~cer Reaearoh Society of which I am Honorary President.

The Society baa lately achieved a conaiderable amount of publicity and we are sponsoring our own radio aeaaion over 3KZ every Wednesday at 7. 30 p . m.. Although only three programmes have so far been broadcast, the interest exhibited by the publio is truly tremendous, and we have received a number of reliable sighting reports from Melbourne citizens, one of the moat remarkable of wbioh I enclose herewith for your interest. The scripta of these programmes have,

ot course, been factual, and we have endeavoured to expreaa both aides of the argument. Consequently, t7'e have interviewed astronomers and p fYOhologiets who have expressed their belief' that . the Saucers are meteorological phenomena or man hallucinations .

I

During the last few years, officers of the Air Department have oooaaionally made statements to the Preas expreuing the Department' a interest in the investigation of Unidentified Flying Objects . Would it be possible for us to visit one of your officers

I was scanning the skies with binoculars hen suddenly a large al~!nium disc npproaching at terrific speed at 4 , 000 or 5 , 000 feet above ua. This proceeiod to circle high above .;ur ship , the cruiser ''Tromp'' or the Royal rctherlando Navy.

I

s~

After reporting it to thE officer on duty , he wae unable to identify it as any k.Down aircraft . After kaeping track or this object for about three to four hour.. ..ill flying in big cirelea e.nd at the sl!llle height , it ouddenly veered orr ina tremendous speed (nbou.t 3, 000 to 3, 000 m. p . h . ) and disappeared from eight . I have an aooou.nt of this in notes mede the same day in a diary which I still have 1n my possession .

Hoping you will

Dear Sirs , On the afternoon of Tuesday , January 29th , at about 3 . 30 p . m. - we hear d what we have 'been told is a jet :t:lane . It was not visible but whilst we were looking an object fell resembling - to the naked eye - a comet with a snow white tail. It appeared to come down a certain distance and then retained its height , travelling in a N. E . direction. We thought at f'irst it was some kind of' vapour discharge , but until it was lost to sight in the binoculars it had not disintegrated at all . With the glasses , the object appeared to be more of a cylindrical shape . We would be grateful if you ,路,路ould let us l-:now just what the object was . It was seen by a number of people. Yours

fait~lly ,

Officer,

Villiamtown .

Dear Sir , lith reference to your report, via the A.B.C. news ond tl:e Delly Telegraph of tl~e 12 . 10. 56, "regard-ng sic,hting or leteor", by one of your officerc, "in the vicinity of Karueh'', on the night of the 11.10. 56. J

I am a field officer of the Lunde Department of and. on t:t-.e ni ht of the 11.10. 56 I w a camped with another employee in the Yarrowitch area.

·. s. ·. ,

Vfuile sittine around the campfire about 8. 30 p. m. on the enid night, we observed a brilliant flash of light ~~d ewuns quickly to the north and •itnessed the "Meteor'' descending in a blaze of' brightneo ; this brightness i~lurninated the ~hole area and ~as more brilliant than any flash of liehtning or onythins we had ever witnessed. Because or this brilliance we are of the opinion that the object probably descended in the locality. After discussing the subject for sometime we concluded that it may have been the crash of an aircraft so a bearing was tolen, 35 degre s; on reading your report we have now decided it was probably the same object sighted by your officer. The Surveyor General has been advised nnd I am nan forr;arding this information to you, trusting it may be of eome benefit , i!' you are still interested in the matter.

J . T. Bourke Land Ins;pectot·. For varded through The District Surveyor, Armidale .

Since it is normally impossible to estimate the height and speed of a strnnre object it will usually be better to ende-vour to de term~ne the onrle of eleva ~ion of the object , the angle throueh \hlch it moved, and the time ta~en to do this .

1. Attached hereto is a reoort on an unusual aerial eightinrr made by Mr . D . Pike of Wongan Uill:a, \'/eat Australia at approximately 2100Ir on tho L1th July, 1956. 2. The Meteorological Bure~in Perth state, that tbrouv,hout the night of the 4th July the surface temperature in the region of this report was excent1onally low. There were in addition, a number of very strong temperature inversio n layers at intervale of apnroximately 2000 reet up to an altitude of 10, 000 feet.

3.

The Government Astronomer at the Perth Observatory has received no other reports of unusual aerial siehtinga on the ni'!ht of 4th July 1956 . He anggests however, that tho phenomena may have br en caused by abnormal atmospheric oon~itiona refracting the li ~bt of the plane t Jupiter, which was setting in the West at that t ime .

4.

There were no ai~craft operating in th~ vicinity of Wongan Hille at tho time the observation was made.

5. Ur. Pike ' a l etter has been acknowledged by this Headquarte rs but be hac not been asked to complete the standard pro- forma .

Superintendent Flying Operations . Airways House, St. George's Terr8ce, PERTH. Dea r Sir. Further to my telephone conversation With you last night regarding the behaviour of the strange flying object sighted yesterday afternoon by my wife and myself I shall quote the occurrence as recorded in the daily diary which it is my duty to keep for the fsrm.

20 . 1.56. Quote'' Strange flying object seen by Urs. Russell and self at 5 p . m. First sighted by Mrs . R. from T.J.S. Fowler ' s front lawn. Locality of the object &bout one hand's span S. N. of Moon which was clearly visible. Mrs. R. thought thut the object might be s very bright star and drew my a t1;ent ion to it. At first glance I thought it mieht be sun ' s rays on a high-flying hovering bird. As my eyes got properly focussed I could see it was b big object at considerable height. Anything frorn 10,000 to 20,000 rt . No noise whstsoevett. Hovering continued fer a minute or two, then the object started to move with spasmodic impetus towards tbe S . •1. (Surface ~inds were S.E.) The strange, slow, spsamodic forwHrd movement continued until the object went out of s~ t in the far s:.v. Shape of the thing wee as far as I could see · · • When it got away from its first almost verticAl pos1 on it seemed to have depth of body. LIGHTS. There seemed to be a bright Light aft, a white light, with a duller yellower 1 'lght above and forward. As the object got f~rther AWby &dvancing by jurnps forward~ roughly second intervale end not at any great speed , the white light eeemd to brighten at ench forward jump. ·.vheu fading in the far distance the last we co~ ld see if it was the intermitt&nt brightenine of thie light. ·.1e are convinced that it was not any sort of plane or helicopter we have ever heard of . It we~ not a bird nor a atar nor comet no!' was it a balloon nor a piece of paper at great height which latter we have sometimes seen carried up to fnst~stic heights by willy-williea and such like. '.7e reported the matter to the Department of Civil Avitttion who requested us to write a full account to the Department at Perth for redirecting tO' 1J!elbourne . This we promised to do." End of diary guot~tion. 2. In accordance witb that promise 1 have gi ven the recording in tbe diary and would be plesaed to give any other details that may be usefu 1. Yours faithfully,

Signed: B. /l E. Russell. Time elapsed from first sighting until the ltst eight of the intermittent light roughly 6 to 7 minutes.

A study of the report , tosetber with the attached sketch has revealed the followins factor s which were considered in arr1ving at a conclusion:

(a) the an11e or elevation at which tbe object was sighted was ten de8rees (loO);

appro~ately

(b) the movement of l igbli was extremely slow; (c) the object was s1gbted in the direction of M~ . Olinda and could have passed behind Mt . Olinda ; (d) the lisht appeared to move 1n o downward direction .

3.

An investigation bas revealed that car liShts are visible in the re芦ion of Mt . Olinda .

4.

From the sighted was the of the moum;sin woe visible for ion sftier whioh

5.

foregoing , it is considered that the objec路t ll!ht of a car approaching from the vicinity ranges surrounding Mt . Ol1nda . This l1t;bti a short period end probably altered direct it was no longer vlsible .

Iti is recommended that no further

ec~~n

be taken.

2. Invest1gOtlon revealed ubau o civil oiroraft , in- bound fr om King Islon<3, woe desccnd1ng over the area at 0733Z, epprox~ately 11he t~e of sighting.

3.

Further

inves~igation ~as

prohibited due to the folloWing :

(D) no otruc11urol sighting wos reported; (b) no oound was heard fron 1ihe ObJect; (c) uhere were no other reports of on unuGuol obJect made in the same area .

4.

The angle of elevation was very slight (120 to 150) and sa it woe sighted in o built- up area , it indicatoo 1ihat if such an obJect did exist , the ol1iluude would be extremely lo~, the range would be abort and therefore, the rote of speed would oppeor to be excessive .

5.

Due to the height of 11he sun above the horizon, opprox. ot 0733Z on 3 Oct . 55, and the low olt1tudo of the civil aircraft descending on f1nols ot 0733Z, opprox. 120 elevation, it io consldored probable that the oircrGft manoeuvred itself lnto o position where the reflection of the sun on tho eircroft wos visible for a brief period . 1~
