INVESTIGATING

OFFICE~ 'S

REfORT

Des JONES, ATC Radar operator at Kalamunda on the night in question, stated that he had recaived a strong, stationary "paint" in position approx . 2q5 deg;rees MaE, netic, Perth Airport, at } Nautical 路>iles . (The latter position was only a calculated one and tbe writer preferred the accurate one of 300 degrees, 9 NM from the Kalamunda Site) . He had first observed the return whilst talking on the phone to Mrs Cosgr~ve(Wife of M. A.Cosgrave, Air Traffic Controller), who had observed object 11 lH e a bi g stre.et light" in the sky over Cloverdale . ~e return appeared for 36 second intervals,(three swee~s of antenna) at 1101, 1108, 1115, 1118, 1136 and 1142Z . Aircra~t VH-ASY was about 4Nl路J SE of object when first plotted at 1101Z, but ASY reported Nil sighting. Although the object finished painting at 1142Z, he ha d reported it's last known position to a F27, VH-FNA at 1200Z . FNA was radar vectored into circuit and kept ~N}; clear of l a st known position of object and also reported Nil sighting . All radar returns from the object were strong, and were far larger than any aircraft would normally have painted at that close range. He had MTI selected and all permanent echoes were at a minimum . Des Jones could offer no explanation whv a stationary ob j ect could have returned such a strong paint with MTI selected . Met Radar at Perth Airport also had an unusual return that evening but times and position did not tally with the Kalamunda report . Ralph BULLOCK, Met Observer at the radar site had noticed an unusual paint on his screen between 1045Z and 1115~ bearing 320 degrees 5600 yds from the site . The return, tnough stationary, had given the ' lacy pattern ' he normally expected from a moving aircraft . At 1115Z he had had to perform a radar flight, (See balloon release time on Obsrrver's report) and had been busily engaged for about 50 minutes . On completion of this task he had looked again for his object and had found it still present but now exhibiting the normal return of a permanent echo . Be again left the set and some thirty minutes later had checked the screen and found only a small PE in the previouslv stated position . 1-'.r Bul.ock has been a radar operator with the RAF in tlorld ~"far 2 and for 19 years as an operator with the Meteorological Department and in all that time never observed a return like the one he bad that night . An investigation of the area 320 degrees 5600 yds frn~ +he 'et Rada r site revealed it to be the site of the Overseas Telecommunidations Centre, EDEN HILL . This area is festooned with large antennae, including two huge RF aerials( Yargies) and as a slight inversion had been present on the evening of the 23rd ~~y, it is possible that the latter might have been lhe cause of the return on the Met Radar . In no way would they have been the cause of the Kalamunda return .

Mrs Cosgrave stated that the object had departed to the North at tremendous speed and had disappeared from sight but as the Kalamunda 'fix' is 3 miles due North of Cloverdale it is possible that the object could once again have become stationary out of her sig ht . The ~Jri ter was accompanied in his enquiries by Mr O.H. TURNER , Dept . of Defence , Canberra, and as the latter has coji l ed a se parate re port on this matter, no further investigation ~s contemplated at this stage .

QUESTIONS 32 , 33 and 34 to be answered by interrogator . Note :

Since it is normally impossible to esti~~te the heigh~ and speed of a strange object, it will usually be bet~er to endeavour to determine the angle of elevation of the object , the angle through which it moved, and the time taken to do this.

·. ANNEX A to H~SC 5/6/1/Air(135) DATED 22l'IUY6

REPORT ON UFO SIGBTINGS IN DENTI..IQUIN .AREA RROM 17th rlAY 1969 I n itial Report 1• At 0630 hours 17th May, the Duty Officer of HQSC received a telephone report from DCA Wagga relaying a report received from Constable ABEL of Deniliquin. The substance of the report was that four persons at Deniliquin had sighted an unidentified flying object in the form of a "flashing red and white object". !:_ollow- up Action 2. On Monday 19th May, Sqn Ldr McTaggart of RAAF Wagga telephoned this office advising that the NSW Sunday newspapers had given coverage to the above UFO report . Later that day, not bei ng able to contact Constable Abel, I identified myself and spoke to a policeman at Deniliquin (name not known) who read out by telephone the report from the Police Station book. I took notes as the report was read, which have been made into precis form and attached at Appendix 1. In respbnse to a remark made by the constable concerning "little green men running around" I repl ied that "possibly they had sighted Venus or some such t bing".

3. Less than ten minutes after completing the above call, Mr David Rolfe of Radio Station 2QN Deniliquin rang and stated he had been informed that I had positively identified the sighting as Venus and requested details of the information I had which enabled me to reach this conclusion. Mr Rolfe stated that he had information from a reliable source which claimed that Venus was not currently observable .

Mr Rolfe also stated that the radio station management was pressing him for identification of the object and he wanted the RA.AF to issue a statement i11111lediately stating to what stage the investigation had reached and what was the possible conclusion.

4.

5.

Mr Rolfe was informed that the object had not yet been identified, that the report had only JUSt been received and any statements regarding the matter would be released through the PRO Organisation. He stated that he knew this was the usual procedure and agreed that the police had issued an incorrect at atement. 6.

Mr Rolfe also stated that : a.

People around Deniliquin were watching the object in the sky during day time and, through a telescope, it looked like a partial eclipse.

b.

On Monday, about 4.30 am the object was photographed on time exposure in the North-Eastern sky. Stars showed as fine lines, but the object showed as a very large bright patch.

7· The above information and events were relayed to higher level at this Headquarters, to the PRO Support Command and unsuccessful efforts were made to inform Department of Air. (conversation Flt Lt Tardent/Gavey refers)

8. that • ••

On Tuesday 2oth Yay, Sqn Ldr McTaggart, Wagga, advised

. •. /my name


-2-

••• my name had appeared in the Wagga Advertiser "as a 'RAAF' spokesman", who "identified the recent UFO as Venus". No such statement was ever made and the facts are as stated in para 2.

9.

Department of Air (Flt Lt Jordan) was advised early on 20th May of the above occurrences. Arrangements were completed to refer any further queries from Mr Rolfe to PRO Canberra.

10. Approximately 1000 hours 20th May , Mr Rolfe again contacted this Headquarters stating that he had proof that the object was not Venus, he had not released any statement to the Wagga Advertiser and pressing for a full inquiry by the RAAF in to the matter . He also stated that some people also saw the object again this morning at about 4 am, but although he was searching, using binoculars, he did not sight it through the cloud cover. Mr Rolfe was requested to contact the PRO organisation, Department of Air, Canberra. ;lnv estigation of Sighting 11 . Weather . As confirmed by DCA Wagga, there were no known air conversions and the weather in the Deniliquin/Wagga are a around 0400 hours on 17 and 18 Jrla.y was as fo1lows: a.

17 May: No ground fog or low cloud in the area, with moderate N wind; the only slightly unusual feature was that the upper air 'high-ba11' balloon released at Mildura which was expected to travel South with the prevai1ing wind, went Northwards very quick1y and was last tracked at 132,000 ft (unusually high) over Newcastle.

b.

18 May: Slight cloud. Normal radiosonde released at Wagga at 0300, went to 55,000 ft in less that 30 second~, then ascended to 120,000 ft (again unusually high) before disappearing. This behaviour considered to be abnormal as the radiosonde balloon normally bursts at about 70,000 ft. The occurrence has been reported to Met. Control Office.

12.

Satellite Activity.

No scheduled satellite sightings.

1 3.

Aircraft Activity .

Nil.

14. Star/Planet Activity. Due to the size of the object sighted, it is doubtful it cou1d have been a star. The only pl a net in that area of the sky at the time would be Venus which is visible as follows:3. 21 pm Set 17 May: Rise 3.52 am 3. 20 pm 18 May: Set Rise 3.53 am 15. Further study regarding the behaviour of Venus at this time indicates that:a. It was at its greatest brilliancy on 14 May when the planet was closest to us. b. Its brightness is such that it is easily seen during daylight. c. The bright area will appear as a crescent-shaped phase, easily discernible with optical aids and sometimes distinguishable with the naked eye • • • • /Conclusion


-3-

Conclusion 16. By the regularity of the appearance of the object, the study of the facts reported as against the known behaviour of the planet Venus, it is considered that the sighting was most probably Venus. 17. The planet is particularly bright at present and was no doubt magnified by the "curve effect" of looking at objects near the horizon. No firm explanation can be offered for the "alternately red and green glow" of the object as reported by Mr Dillon and this colouring has not been seen on subsequent s ightings . 1 8.

Attached herewith as Appendix 2 is an extract from data originated by the Astronomical Society of Victoria concerning Venus sightings during 1'11ay-June, 1969.

Sum!ARY OF REPORT RECEIVED BY TELEPHONE

FROM DENILIQUIN POLICE STATION

1. \'At 4. 45 am 17 May 69, Nr Lindsay Roy DILLON , Stephen ' s Weir, telephoned the Deniliquin Police Station concerning a sighting of a UFO.

2. "At approximately 4 am, I was sowing barley on a property at Stephen' s Weir when I noticed an object in the sky the size of a motor car, glowing alternately red and green. It descended to about 1, 000 feet and came towards the tractor . The UFO stopped above the car parked on a alight rise about 500 yards from the tractor. The UFO was there for 2-3 minutes then moved 500 yards further North, then disappeared. The object re-appeared 500 yards further North and then appeared to move closer again.

3. "At 4.10 am Mr Tony HOCKING, Benarca Station, arrived and UFO receded about 1 mile. It stopped and remained a bout 1,000 feet above the groWld. 4. "DILLON told his wii'e and a Mr HYNDES and his wife all of whom saw the object. It \Vas described as noiseless" . Unquote.

5â&#x20AC;˘ This report was received by telephone at approx 1450 hours, 19 May 69 .

6.

The police at Deniliquin advise that the Roads Board have set up a telescope and are currently watching an object in the Northern sky. Apparently this has caught the imagination of the locals. The object, through a telescope , is the shape of a "partial eclipse .

IUERCURY (Continued) exception ot Pluto) can rnove sufficicnny far from the ecliptic to enter the Hyades cluster. This elong.ation will be slightly more favourable~ec~e t1ercury will be further from the Sun and further south in the y an<.l hence higher above our horizon before the Sun begins to inte ere with observations . Look for the planet in the north-cast sky before sunrise for around 10 days on either side of the date of b~eatesv elongation . }.r' 1-) Mer c].lX'y is the smallest ond; for most people , the most elusive of the naked-eye planets . It is or1ly about 3,000 ~fles in diameter - not a great deal larger than the Moon . Its mean distance from the Sun is a mere 36 ,000 , 000 miles and it has a sidereal or true period of just 88 days. / Because i t always seems so close .-to the Sun in the sky , Mercury can be seen with the naked eye only when low in the west a:fter sunset or low in the east before sunri se . It is oover very conspicuous and it is rather surprising in some ways that th~'ancients knew it so well . Ye t, when Mercury is lo cated, it may seem quite surprisingl y bright and one wonders how it can have been overlo)"ked! / Ther e is a story - p;~robably untrue - th~t the great theoretical astronomer Copernicus never on~ saw Mer cury in his lifetime . Sweeping for it with binoculars is a ood method but this shoul d not be attempted while the Sun is above the orizon . The Sun may enter the binocular field with disastrous r esults the observer ' s eyes.ight . Mer cury ha been carefully studied of l a t e and there have been some unexpected find· gs with regaTd to its rotation period. After years of systematic worl< uring the nineteenth century and the early decades of the twentieth ce ury, Schiaparelli in Ita l y and Antoniadi in France concluded that trong tides raised in Mercury by the variable pull of the close Sun ha rought the axial and orbital periods into coincide nce at 8~ days . he se opinions carried great weight and seemed to be fully corrobora d by the r eappearance of the sa~e features , a ' figure -five' marking n the west side and three oblique dusky bands on the east, at s~cce i ve apparitions . Thus it c a~e to be regarded as an established that lliercury had a synchronous period of rotation. . Soon a number o£ investigations and measures wer e to change this . In recent years , investigations of the microwave radio emission bj Mer cury and, more importantl y, the observation of radar echoes from the planet have led to a revision of the planet's axial rotation period to around 59 days .

£

Venus is again at greatest brilliancy (magnitude - 4 . 2) on as a crescent, as it always does when sunlit face is visible, the planet il? further away from us . The incre~sed distance more than compensates for the greater phase and Venus appears less bright . \Vhen at its best, Venus i~ capdble of casting a perceptible shadow . It easily outshines its nesrest planetary rivols, Jupi~er and Mar~:. Keen- sighted people c·m see the pl".lnet during broad dayll.ght: Indeed, there are mru1y authenticated cases of the crescent phase hav1ng been detected without optical aid . For the benefit of ne,, r:~en~bers, the method o" finding Venus in daylight is r peated . It is necessary to know exactly wher~ to loolc in order to be a~le to pick out t~e small dot of ligh+ th:1 t; is the planet . _If th. observation is attan>pted at the tit:le when Venus is on the mer:J.d.o...::n;, n 1-.nonledge of its elti tude above the northern horizon is all th::t :LS r equir ed to assist in its l ocntion. The tit:le of meridian ?assage crm he c"!lculated using the pbnetary in:forrr:.tion publiGhed dzily in "The Age'' .

VEvrns (Continued) interval during which the plar:'et will be above the horizon . Venus .~~ E be on the meridian approximat~ly hslt' way through this interval. :Sy halving the interval and adding this quanb ty to the rising time of Venus, the approximate time of r.eridian pa3sage can be established . The table below shows the meridian altitude of Venus above the northern horizon on various dates. May 1 May 26 45° 45° 6 46 31 44 11 46 Jun 5 43 16 46 10 42 21 46 After mid- June, the magnitude of Venus falls below -4.0 and observations are rendered more difficult. rlembers with exceptional vision will, in all probability, find the planet after this, time . The Director w:lll be pleased to hear from interested members the last date on which the planet was seen with the unaided eye during daylight . In Pisces at the beginnin~ of May, Venus will advance to attain greatest elongation west of the Sun (46°) in Aries on June 18. At that time, the planet •.vill be a beautiful morning 'star' rising nearly four hours before the Sun . On June 12, Venus will pass only 0 . 3° south of Saturn and the pair will be an interesting sight in a telescope using low magnification . The waning crescent Moon will lie a few degrees to the north . The red planet will come to opposition on June 1 of 45,1 50,000 miles when it will shine as a magnificent red magnitude - 2 . 0 and will be visible throughout the night . At the beginning of May, Mars is retrograding in hiuchus at magni tude - 1. 1 . The pl~net will re-enter Scorpius early ·. June . On June 4, Mars will pass 2 north of Antares. On this o_ asian, Mars will outshine its rival - the name Antares means litera llY- the rival of .Mars " - the planet being some 16 times brighter than the ar . By late June, Mars will have reached the vicinity of 2.5-magni Scor?ii . This is a very favourabl e opposi ti because of the proximity of Mars to the earth . The north pole of f, s is til ted slightly tow~rds the earth and it is no·n the end of sur::me 10 the Martian northern hem1sphere . Mars will be nearest the ear on June 9 at a distance of 44, 577,000 miles but it will come ev closer <>t the opposition of 1971 · Members are left to worl{ out for emselves tbe reason why Mars is closest to the earth after the te of opposition. A diagrao of the orbits of earth al'ld Mars will elp in the consideration of the problem . For the next tv: months. ooservers using telescopes will be able to see the more pr nent markings on the surface of lllers.

Dear Sirs, It vas reported in the Brisbane Truth 23rd February of the t"'o "Flying ::>aucer'' landings in Kyogle . "\ie" my husband and two sons, vent to view one so called lanrling e..-idence . ~here was a definite circle of scorched grass about 20 ft . in diameter. Also one son aged sixteen who is ver y inter ested in science picked up this enclosed toadstool, which was growing within the cycle . It appears to have been subjected to heat and pressure, as all the little veins underneath one flattened. He also took one toadstool away from the site, which w~s quite different, it was just the usual grey underside, whilst this one is brown and scorched looking .

I am interested to know if you would like to do some research on this particular evidence . \le hear so much about U.l-'.0. I gues if we really actually see one, we would have to believe in them . Would you please send a reply as to your opinions or tendings. In case of any public reaction, we would keep it confidential if you wish it so. Thanking you Yours faithfully,

Mn . I. r,. Gibbs .

QUESTIONS 32, 33 and 34 to Note :

Since it is nor~lly impossible to estim~te the height and speed of a strange object, it will usually be better to endeavour to determine tne angle of elevation of the object, the angle through which it moved, and the time taken to do thi3.

2130 TST (2030 EST)27 Dec 68

First Sighted:

"From over the sea, towards the North" :iorth to South • . . "as a satellite in slow motion 11

Direction o:r Travel:

Description of Object: "Three or :t'our times the size of satellite, the sha!'e of a be::.ch-ball, brilliantly lit" . "Appeared to have a circle right around it showing dozens of tiny stars, which,after it passed, beca:r,e invisible" . Period of Sighting: About 1t hours,when object reduced in size to small star over the distant horizon . .9. omment by Investi';ating Officer Despite intensive investigation the object has so far 2. not been identified. ~om information derived from the Air Almanac the following high magnitude stars were visible at the approximate azimuth and elevation, but do not appear to be associated with the subject sighting: .ACHERNAR

(at 1030Z (2030K)) 195°

FOPJ.:ALHAUT

2600

CANOPUS

1320

RIGEL

(at 1200Z (2200K)) 215° 57°

280 450

60°

65°

59° 3. The only planet visible between the above times was SA TURN in the vicinity of AZ 325o EL 550 and would not have been moving in the area of the sighting. 4. There were no aircraft in the vicinity or satellites scheduled for about 2130 TST, and even had there been, the sighting time of 1i hours would pre clude such identification . 5. There remains only one :feasible explanation, thRt the object sitt.ted \Vas possibly an unsche'iuled non-regular comet. . This theory can be partly borne out by the "tiny stars" surround~ng it , but ~o firm evidence is available for confirll'.ation.
