Eyewitness 1979 UFO Wars

Hello Ed
This is the first time I have ever shared this story.

On Christmas Eve 1979 at the age of 22, I was standing in the front yard of my parents house in St ALbans, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, looking up to the stars when I noticed two sets of approx twelve lights each shooting simultaneously across the night sky in a staright horizontal line so that each light was equally distanced apart from one another.

Once I saw the first twelves lights fire from the right hand side of the sky across to the left handside, i then notice a second set on the left hand side of the sky shoot lights back as if in retaliation. This alternate exchange continued for approx 5 mins until all the lights were gone. At the time i noticed no sound or evidence of any explosion of the kind one would expects. The lights after firing simply went out. I was in awe after this experience at the time as i couldnt explain it away as a natural casue as the shooting lights were to orderly. I belwieved at the time that what i witnessed with my naked eye was very extraordinary and rare. I also beleievd and still believe that I witnessed a STAR WAR, even though this phenomena was not known at the time.

Soon after this experience i have witnessed many sigtings of UFO’s including a fleet of UFO’s in broad daylight above our local Petro-Chemical Plants, personal contact, space travel, tear in the fabric of space in my living room, an attempted abduction of me which I fought against and won and many other strange events which I have not disclosed for fear of ridicule.

I am a retired lawyer, and have worked in the area of behavioural therapy. I found your contact details after watching a presentation today on utube called The Hacker Who Discovered NASA’s Biggest Secret, and before hearing what you said during your interview I felt the need to write down what I had witnessed and send it off to you before watching your interview. I would be happy to answer any questions your may have.

Best wishes Josephine

Ghost At Australian IGA Caught Throwing Things On Camera

Security cameras at a Brompton, South Australia IGA have caught several objects being thrown across the store without a known cause.

According to shop owner Norm Hurst, the store is haunted, or so he was warned by the previous owner.
“The previous owners told me it was haunted,” Hurst told Adelaide Now. “I thought, ‘Yeah, whatever.’ But since we’ve owned the place, strange things have happened.”

Fruit Roll-Ups are among the mysterious moving objects.

New Spiral UFO Over Australia

June 5th 2010 Australia Spiral UFO

A new spiral UFO, very similar to the one seen over Norway in December 2009, has been seen over New South Wales, Queensland and the ACT Australia. The UFO was seen at sunrise on June 5th.

The UFO was described as yellowish in color and said to have lasted two or three minutes.

Astronomers like Geoffrey Whyatt from the Sydney Observatory have already declared the UFO space junk or possibly a rocket.

“The fact that you’ve got the rotation, the spiral effect, is very reminiscent of the much widely reported sightings from Norway and Russia last year, which both turned out to be a Bulava missile which was being adjusted in its orbit.

So possibly a rocket, I would say, having some sort of gyroscopic stability rocket fired on its side.

The first I saw of the spirals was last year when they were reported in Norway and then a few days later in Russia.

The Norway one was very spectacular because of its symmetrical appearance.

But the one this morning and the one in Russia bear a striking similarity of being the same effects from a rocket trying to be controlled or adjusted.”

A privately-owned rocket launched from Cape Canaveral in Florida on its first test flight is believed to be responsible.

Doug Moffett from UFO Research NSW finds some problems with the quick rocket explaination.

“Firstly, the time of the launch was 18.45 GMT, which translates to 4.45am EST, the duration of the flight was 9 minutes 38 seconds – this is a full hour before the reported sightings.

Secondly, where was the glow from the boosters or from the friction created by the craft moving through the atmosphere, where was the tail of the rocket?

Thirdly, why would anyone launch a rocket on a maiden test flight with a trajectory that would take it over the most heavily populated parts of Australia?

And how big must this rocket have been to be seen so clearly, at the same time, over such a vast distance?”

Australia UFO Flap

Way back in August of 2008, we reported on an ongoing UFO flap down under in the Northern Territory.

According to www.dailytelegraph.com.au, they are back.

Most sighting have been near Darwin, the capital of the Northern Territory, Australia, and its outlying rural area.

The witnesses are describing lights, “The lights were really low in the sky, really bright, with flashing dots” and sometimes multiple lights at a time, “Three of them formed a semi-circle and they hovered over the area for at least half an hour.”

The following UFO sightings have been reported to the NT News in the past week.

April 21, night-time, Humpty Doo/Howard Springs
Thirty eight-year-old Shirel and her family see “strange lights” from their Humpty Doo home. The lights seem to hover over Howard Springs.
“The lights were really low in the sky, really bright, with flashing dots.
“Three of them formed a semi-circle and they hovered over the area for at least half an hour.”

April 23, 8pm, Howard Springs
Susan Clarke and her family spot a “huge spherical object that was moving horizontally across the night sky very slowly”.
“It was amazing and unnerving at the same time.
“It was glowing red, orange and gold – none of us had ever seen anything like it before.”

A 48-year-old woman of Woodroffe later confirms the sighting and compares it to a similar UFO sighting in Howard Springs in September last year.
“It was sitting there, maybe 40 metres above the house – I first thought it was a huge full moon.
“When I looked around I saw that there was a partial moon further to the left, and I thought ‘Oh my God, I’m not hanging around here’ and took off.
“It was unnerving, it was a dark, very quiet night, and really, it scared me to bits.
“It was an enormous orb, just sitting there, as if it was waiting for something.”

April 23, night-time, Stuart Highway, south of Howard Springs
British backpacker Kylie Myers is on the way to Adelaide River, when she suddenly sees “this big light” in front of her, a few metres above the road.
“It slowly moved to the right, then to the left … and then it slowly flew to the left.
“A second later somebody must have switched the light off – it was gone as suddenly as it appeared.
“I never believed in anything like that, I always thought people would make it all up or see strange things when they are drunk, but this really happened to me – and it was pretty spooky.”

April 24, 10pm, Coolalinga

Twenty seven-year-old Renee Miller sees a huge yellow light over the road.
“It was just there, it wasn’t the moon or anything.
“It was bright yellow – and suddenly it was gone. I have no idea what it was.”

April 25, 8pm, Acacia Hills
UFO-spotter Alan Ferguson sees a “bright white light” flashing past his house. “It just looked like the International Space Station – a big white light,” he said.
“When it moves across it looks like a satellite, except it’s huge.
“It’s exactly the same thing that I saw at this time last year.”

April 27, 10.30pm, Humpty Doo/Howard Springs
Humpty Doo-resident Shirel again spots mysterious lights over Howard Springs, together with her husband and her two grown-up children.
“We saw the same thing again – there were three of them (bright lights) in a semi-circle.
“It was a crystal clear night and we all saw it. We watched it for half an hour and the things changed their shape a few times.
“It looked like a long piece with lights on the side, but every now and again it just looked like a star.
“We weren’t worried as it was too far away, but it’s a bit of a worry to hear more and more people report strange things happening.”

UFOs Seen Over Cairns Queensland

Cairns is in the news for something besides topless sunbaking... UFOs.

Cairns Queensland Australia is more know for its topless ‘sunbaking’ and warm tropical climate than being a UFO hotspot, but a UFO sighting on Monday has all those surfers and tourists watching the Australian night skies.

Reports have residents of Mooroobool seeing six unidentified lights between 7pm and 7.30pm on Monday August 24th. Witnesses claim the light moved oddly. A spokesman for Air Services Australia said no irregularities were recorded by air traffic controllers and a spokesman for the Navy claims it had no aircraft operating in the area at the time.

Whales In Space One Year Anniversary

Its been one year since WhalesInSpace.com launched in its current format and what a year in the world of weirdness it has been.

Highlights would have to be the Tom Biscardi’s RickMat Bigfoot Press Conference and when it was revealed to be a hoax. Whales In Space was able to get a reporter to the conference and cover the event as it happened. I still think there is more to this story that was never discussed, except in the private conversations between cryptozoologists and and those who pay very close attention to these things. Also the Blossom Goodchild October 14th UFO prediction stands out as one of the most interesting stories of Whales In Space’s first year.

The February 15th Texas Fireball caught on video and the amazing number of other Fireball sightings and mysterious sonic booms before and after wards also caught the worlds attention.

Also in the first year, we saw the rise of sasquatchploitation, multiple black balloon cluster UFO sightins, two Montauk Monsters and the possible return of batsquatch or at least some clarification to the story.

And still going one, with reports still coming in, the Orange Ball of Light (ORBL) sightings over the UK. If these are just chinese lanterns, I would suggest buying some stock in a chinese lantern company, because sales are up.

A big thanks to everyone who read a post, who made a comment, who sent in photos and stories and tips. A big thanks to everyone who linked to our site.

In the first year we had 200 posts exploring the weirdness of aliens, UFOs, exopolitics, cryptozoology, other paranormal fortean phenomenon, and ultraterrestrial activities. I expect the next year to bring weirder yet stories.
