OCTOBER 2014 AUSTRALIAN UFO/UAP REPORTS LISTING

 

Compiled by Keith Basterfield and Paul Dean

 

 

The start of a series:

This is the first of a series of monthly compilations of current UAP reports from Australia prepared by Melbourne colleague, Paul Dean (click here to see Paul's own blog) and I. We are in the process of talking to various Australian civilian UAP organisations and individuals, with a view to acting as a central collection point for such reports. It is hoped that this monthly collection will build in volume as more groups and individuals participate. We make no comment, as to whether or not, these reports refer to examples of the "core" UFO/UAP phenomenon, or have mundane explanations. That is not the intent of this collection.


Format:

The format of each report will be date, time, location, duration, either "raw" (that is an un-investigated report); "telephone report" (meaning that an investigator spoke to the witness by telephone;) or "investigated" (meaning someone has looked into the details of the report and published their findings.) Finally a source is cited for the report.


These monthly collections:

1. Will allow us all to gauge the volume of reports which are received nationally each month, and how this varies over time.

2. Should allow us to determine what percentage of all such incoming "raw" reports remain unidentified after investigation.

3. Should allow us to determine, which, if any, off the incoming "raw' reports is worthy of a deeper study, and then allocate resources to this smaller number.

4. Will save others having to collect the same information. Paul and I are undertaking this for us all.

5. Will be useful when dealing with media inquiries about "recent reports", "patterns in the data" and other such inquiries.

For a deeper discussion on why collect such reports, please see my VUFOA conference presentation at:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4KzQkWmRz8


Submitting data to us:

For anyone wishing to submit (Australian only) reports to this monthly collection, we would appreciate you simply sending a summary (see examples below) as close to the last day of the calendar month as possible, by email to

[email protected]

Once the monthly summary is prepared, it will be posted on this blog within a few days of the start of the next calendar month, e.g. first week in November for October reports. We will alert participants to the fact that it has been published.


Investigations:

You will note that most of the reports featured in this blog are labelled "raw" meaning that they are un-investigated. If you take an interest in any of the reports, and can undertake an investigation into that report, please take the time to do so. Then write up a report of what you find and send it to us at:

[email protected]


Reposting:

Recipients of the information are free to re-post, re-publish, etc. The intent is to provide anyone who is interested, with summarised data. Naturally, when re-posting it would be nice of you to credit the source, namely Paul Dean and Keith Basterfield, given that we are taking the time to compile this resource.


Older reports:


You will see, that currently, the listing does not provide details of any older than the previous month's cases. However, besides summaries of the month just gone; we are happy to report on cases once they have been investigated, however old they are. If the investigation report is lengthy, we would propose to provide a summary on this blog and a link to your website; blog, etc where your full investigation report may be read.


AUFORN:


The contents of these blog posts will also be forwarded to the Australian UFO Research Network (AUFORN) for their use, and possible publication in the "UFOlogist" magazine. Hopefully, this will assist with their work, given that many reports are now bypassing their national telephone hotline service, and appearing on such diverse websites as MUFON (USA); UFOINFO (UK); Sydney Observatory; etc. which no-one has the time to constantly monitor.

"Woke up to a cloudy morning that day and was looking outside the balcony while having my morning tea. When I noticed an impression of what seems to be an invisible/reflective aircraft in the clouds. It is triangular and stationary. The clouds gave away the shape and size of the craft which is flying higher than an airplane that is about 5-8 minutes into take off and is much bigger. The plane flew past the same line of sight as where the craft was and the invisible craft was about 5 times bigger than the plane even though its further away from where I was observing. It is unknown how long the craft stayed as I have to leave for work. I took a photo of it and will be attaching to this report (raw/unedited.)"The attached single photograph is a daylight picture of a cloudy sky above rooftops. The cloud has a "rippled" look to it.

A male member of the Benge family was filming in slow motion during a storm, to capture lighting strikes. When the family replayed the footage they noticed :An object is seen merging from the bottom right of the screen, shooting across the sky, then disappearing out of sight." The family discounted it being a bird or an insect. "We didn't see it with our own eyes" they said. The family then found the Rosemeadow photographs (see above item) on the Internet. "Shawn confirmed the Rosemeadow photographs were taken from the same direction his younger brother had captured the object on video."

14 October 2014 (1930-2000hrs) Mt Collum area, Sunshine Coast, Queensland Mins Telephone and Facebook reports
A young man reported that his sister called him at work to say she and a friend had seen 6 or 7 orange lights from the top of Mt Collum that were pulsing in the sky then disappearing. This made him take more notice of the sky, and when he was driving west, he also observed two lights together and pulsing. The lights were moving up and down and he could identify their movements in comparison to nearby stars. Later when driving home from work at 3.05am he observed one object in the western sky near the Kunder Park area. He later heard from a friend whose father had also observed similar lights just above tree top height around the same time..

Meanwhile the man's sister called to report that she had seen one orange light appear at first, fading in and out, followed by the appearance of a second light. Soon after another four lights appeared in a "clump," then started fading in and out. This lasted for one minute then they disappeared. Ten minutes later she drove down the mountain and saw another three lights appear. They looked like they were falling and fading in and out while doing so. Eventually they disappeared too. The objects were half the size of her fingernail at arm's length. The sky was clear at the time of the sightings. The woman sent an image as a depiction of what she observed.

The UFO Research Queensland Facebook page was flooded with comments from other people reporting similar observations. These came from multiple locations, such as Flaxton, Peregian Beach, and Yandina to Cooroy.

"I was on top of a ferris wheel with a DSLR Canon EFS 55-250mm lens with 58mm lens hood at the 2014 Canberra Floriade event and its surroundings. I only discovered unknown object by uploading and enlarging digital photo onto my iMac. At first glance I assumed it to be a dust particle but realised that none of my other images had such marks. Possibly a plane? There is an airport nearby although I have not checked to see the usual flight patterns at the Canberra airport it does seem to be descending or ascending but the particular shape and size of the object and the distance it seems to be, I wanted to ensure a UFO was not sighted, therefore am requesting the assistance of MUFON to possibly verify for me."

The object resembled a fireball, and it was travelling North-South. We were facing toward Mt Dandenong (East.) We watched the object on its trajectory and it appeared to be moving faster than any jet I have seen. At one point a ball of light fell from the object .

Current Australian UFO/UAP reports - November 2014

Hi all,

Case of the month:

29 May 2014 (Reported in November 2014) Ca. 0200hrs  South Coast, New South Wales (30-60) mins Currently under investigation by Paul Dean and associates.

Two people were house sitting a property. One of their favourite pastimes is to watch the sky for meteors and planets etc. So, at the time of the sighting, on a clear night with no Moon, they were sitting around a backyard campfire, chatting and looking at the sky.

The woman first noticed a hazy, white, foggy light in the distance. She drew her partner's attention to it, and over the next two minutes it became larger in size. At this point, they considered the possibility that it might be the neighbour's backyard sensor light. After four minutes it was still growing in size. They then considered whether or not it might be car headlights. At this point, suddenly the white hue became a red hue/fog. At the same time it seemed to split.

It became a row of about ten red and blue, circular lights lined up, with a bright white beam at the front. As they were new to the area they continued to look for a logical explanation. Then the row of white, blue and red lights suddenly compacted itself and an incredibly loud noise commenced. The witnesses' best guesstimate as to the distance to the object, was 900 metres. In the witness' own words "It then scanned the terrain of the hills and the valley just opposite us, very low to the ground (around tree level,) shining this incredibly bright white light through the trees to the ground, as well as in front of itself." The red and blue lights hovered around it. By this time both witnesses were terrified by the weird, oscillating sound and the foggy, hazy light, all around them.

So, there was the row of lights some distance away, plus all around them was a foggy, hazy light. This 'fog" was coming from "...three different rhombus shapes, 1 green, 1 yellow and 1 red. They had  cross hatching effects/sort of laser light effects creating their shape and overlapping one another. I estimate it would have been 10-20 metres above us." There was no air turbulence felt. "We're pretty sure the noise was coming from the scanning light and not the one above us..."

At this point, the scanning light came closer to them and they ran into the house and did not look out for 40 minutes, even after the noise ceased. They then noted some light activity still going on on the other side of the valley; little lights joined together and left the area. Suddenly all the dogs in the area began to howl. The area surrounding the house has some paddocks, but is mostly bushland.

Initial investigation has so far failed to determine any mundane explanation for the event.


Updated report from October:

Jeff Fausch, from Adelaide undertook some research into the 13 October 2014 sighting from Adelaide. Jeff forwarded his comprehensive investigation report to me, which I summarise below.

Jeff starts his report by noting the limited information available on which to base a detailed analysis. However, "Studying the photograph supplied with the raw report, the triangular impression described by the witness could be the result of a weather phenomenon called a "Hole Punch Cloud." A Hole Punch Cloud is the name given to a cloud/s formed from an aircraft dissipation hole or trail. Rather then extending as a line, Hole Punch Clouds appear in a circular, oval or similar shaped hole in a deck of supercooled water clouds. They are not uncommon where jet flight paths intersect altocumulus layers just before landing...." Jeff goes on to note that:

"The weather conditions on the morning of Monday 13th October were favourable for this phenomenon to occur. The temperature between 0700hrs and 0730hrs was 11c and mostly cloudy. With humidity between 44% and 66%. Rain fall 1.00mm. These weather conditions fit in with the conditions needed to form a "Hole Punch Cloud.""

"The triangular impression was in the flight path of aircraft landing at the Adelaide airport. I went onto the website "Web-Trak" to observe the landing and take off patterns of aircraft at the Adelaide airport between 0600hrs and 0745hrs. Most aircraft approached the airport from the north-east, flying over Adelaide before landing at the Adelaide airport. This fits in with the witness' observations...."

"Between 0600hrs and 0745hrs seven aircraft landed...that took them over North Adelaide..I believe it is plausible that these aircraft created/caused the unusual triangular depression in the clouds..."

Thank you to Jeff for contributing this analysis. If you have taken a look at any of the other reports carried in the October listing, please let us known your conclusions. Send them to"

This cloud is a different shape to the others and above the clouds. The witness recalls noting the half sphere cloud which did not move in the brief time it was observed. Inspection of the picture suggests that the half sphere maybe just an interesting cloud.

The witness was jogging when, at 70 degrees north-east they saw a moving yellowish light. The stars were not yet visible in the sky.The Moon was large and bright. There was no sound associated with the light. The light appeared to rotate left to right while moving up and down. When the light was "directly above me I could see the light positioned on the side of a matt black disc approximately 40 metres diameter about 250m up..." The witness was terrified. The object left at about 60km/hr to the south-east, moving in a jolting and intermittent motion.

7 November 2014 0143hrs Wooloowin, Brisbane, Queensland 20mins Possibly Jupiter.
A woman was driving outbound along Gympie Road, Lutwyche, when her attention was caught by a big ball of light in the eastern sky. She estimated the altitude to be ten stories in height, and remaining stationary. She could see the light ebbing and flowing with shafts of light emitting from it. She eventually arrived at her destination at Wooloowin, got out of her car and went inside to check if it was the ISS, Mars or Venus which were not in the area at the time. She could also see a cloudy arc behind the light, although there were no other clouds in the sky at the time and stars were easily visible. She observed the object for 20 minutes in total. The camera used was a Sony Xperia Z, 28m/p HD. Possibly Jupiter which rises at 0038hrs.

From my balconey near Brisbane CBD I was watching the Police Helicopter buzzing around for the G20. Then I noticed clearly in the blue skies, very high, perhaps more than 20,000 feet, an object hovering around which was emitting a white light as bright as a star. The light was fading then shining very bright! It could not have been a plane because it hovered around slowly in opposite directions. Nor could it have been a balloon because the wind would take it in one direction. I thought could it be a drone? But would a drone emit such a bright shining light like a star? I guess not! I observed it clearly for more than 15 minutes.

A sound like a crack of thunder alerted a witness to two objects high in the western sky. It was not quite dark. His first thought was that they were meteors but upon viewing them through binoculars saw each had two parallel short tails. The witness thought they moved too slow to be meteors, and they appeared to stop at times. Eventually they disappeared over the horizon.

Two people reported seeing three silent "unidentified aircraft and accompanying lights flying in formation... The lights moved rapidly across the sky and then stopped and hovered in the sky above our home, in a west to north-west direction. The lights appeared very high in the sky. The three craft came together and then were still for several minutes before dispersing in three directions: west north westerly; westerly, and north. The dispersion was fast. Too fast for a plane or a helicopter. They just seemed to vanish. We took photos which show tiny red images in the sky..."

Another reporter, Damian, added a note to say that friends of his also saw the same lights. Three orange/red lights in a triangle, a fourth appeared, then their video ended. However, the lights disappeared one by one.

A witness reported that an egg-shaped object fell out of the sky onto the property where he worked. The object left a big impact in the ground. It caught fire on impact and burned over 2000 acres of land plus a shed. He called the rural fire brigade to check the situation but they had no record of the fire trucks going to the area yet three fire trucks had arrived. The witness was confused as to how "the fire brigade beat them to a fire on their own property." While on the phone his brother and uncle arrived so he hung up saying he'd call back.

16 November 2014 0115hrs Proserpine (22 minutes north), Queensland Telephone interview
Three witnesses were camping and fishing at a creek and watching the stars. They are very familiar with the stars as they drive cattle in accordance with them. They soon noticed the stars in the sky weren't right and the constellation of the "saucepan" was turned around 180 degrees. The birds in the area then started "going crazy" and crocodiles in the creek started "splashing around." Then they observed lights in the sky grouping together at a high altitude and seemingly firing at each other. Meanwhile they observed a "half-moon shaped" object falling slowly down to the ground. It was described as having an outer cover like an orange rind. There was another light object above it that see,ed to be struggling to retrieve the object beneath it so it wouldn't fall to earth. As the falling object fell, it did so slowly and rocked like a cradle. The outer casing eventually slipped off and hit the ground causing an extremely large fire in an instant estimated to be 1000 acres catching fire at once. This caused burning on the face of the main witness which affected his eyes. This occurred approximately 5 kms from the witnesses followed by the appearance of a very large cloud approximately 10kms high and 100 metres in thickness. The cloud slowly moved across the area where the witnesses were standing with their vehicles and as it passed the witnesses could see four objects behind the cloud seeming to push or at least direct the cloud towards the fire. The cloud then merged with the smoke from the fire, followed by what seemed to be an effect of this merging. The witness described the effect as gravity occurring. Then the vehicles began making a creaking noise as they were slowly dragged towards the location of the merging fire and cloud, and one of the vehicles was described as being "up on two wheels." The force then affected the witnesses, two of whom clung to each other to stop from being pulled into the fence. This gravitational effect lasted for 20 minutes before abating. The falling object was recovered and the objects left the area leaving the witnesses disturbed by what they had seen. The witnesses are now having trouble sleeping and since the incident "don't feel right" as they struggle with their changed reality. The witness called again to say he was returning to the scene to attempt to find some debris and look over the area. He said he would call back to advise the results. Witness did not want to leave a phone number.

I was in my backyard burning leaves. When I stepped away from the fire I looked up and saw this stationary light. It was Sunday night, I think (not sure now) about 7pm. It was there for a few minutes then it just disappeared. It didn't move off. The night was almost cloudless so there was no cloud for it to go behind. I didn't see outline of a craft. I'm not sure but I think there was a quick flash of red light as if behind it. A drone? It was about the size of Venus.

On the first night a woman observed UFOs flying over her area around 8-8.30pm. It did not appear to be a plane, made no sound and did not take the usual route the planes do (we live on a flight path.) She thought it might have been flying about or above cloud level as it disappeared for a few seconds then reappeared. She watched it for about three minutes as it flew across the sky and out of sight.

On the second night around 6.30-7pm.she took a photo of a tree on her property and as she viewed it on her computer she discovered an object above the tree height and to her amazement on looking closer, could see up to 13 round objects that appear to surround a long object. None of her other shots have any of these objects and the sky looks clear. Photos posted on UFORQ Facebook page.

The time was approximately 4.18am at this point. A few minutes passed and he had a "weird feeling" he could not explain. Shortly after at 4.23am he hopped off the chair he was sitting on to look into the sky and noticed a bright cluster of four stars. Split seconds later, one of the stars started moving at a very fast pace in an easterly direction from Scarborough Beach towards Perth Hills, at cloud height. He managed to only view the object for no longer than 20 seconds. It was moving a lot faster than a passenger aircraft, before disappearing behind cloud cover never to be seen again.

A man was located at East Faluga looking south-west towards Tully. He observed a "spaceship" performing erratic movements for one hour in the sky before cloud cover obscured his vision. During this time he knocked on his neighbour's van to point out the object and the neighbour saw it too. The object had red, white and blue lights across the middle of it, and a white light above and below. The next evening he was in his caravan when lights entered the windows of the van on either side, one at a time at five second intervals. He described the light as being "as bright as day" as it shone through heavy rubber curtains. At this time he was paralysed until he heard the sound of "metal popping." He then became free to move around once again. By this time it was 5am. He then stepped outside into a heavy misty fog and found what he thought might be angel hair falling down from above on to his skin. As it touched his skin it dissipated on contact.

3 October 2014 1500hrs Adelaide, South Australia ?mins Current investigation
While driving down the southern highway, travelling south, a woman witnessed a huge area of white water bubbling away in the sea at a distance of approximately 1.5km out to sea. Intrigued by never noticing a reef in ocean in that area ever before. Further investigation reveals there is no reef in that immediate area at all, which would cause the white water disturbance. Over the white water bubbling she witnessed 2 small black helicopters hovering and swooping the bubbling sea and moving around tightly in that general area, above the white water at least between 15 to 50m high. The helicopters, were very small compared to normal tourist or commercial helicopters, normally seen elsewhere. Never before in this area have helicopters been sighted at a low altitude and concentrating on a small area of the sea. The white water bubbling was guesstimated at around 60ft in circumference in a reasonably shallow area of the sea and about 100ft off shore. Could that have been a USO?

December 2014 - Monthly Australian reports roundup

Here are the collated reports for the month of December 2014. To submit future reports for this listing, please email last months reports to [email protected] before the end of the third day of the next calendar month, e.g. 3 February 2015 for reports made in, or reported in, January 2015.

Case of the month:
(Reported 3 December 2014.)

11 June 1990 0208hrs Exmouth, Western Australia 14mins Raw
"I can't tell you who I am, but I have been living with this event since 11 June 1990. I am ex-Australian military and was operating out of RAAF Base Learmouth. On the night mentioned at approximately 0208am myself and my patrol section was on a recon exercise patrol when we experienced something. A rifle section consists of  9 men, we were the only patrol out that night. The triangular craft was massive, at least 2 football fields wide. I've seen a lot of aircraft in my life time but this scared the shit out of me and my patrol. The object was black with eight dull lights (white) on 2 edges of the craft with a red light in the centre. It gave off a low humming noise, like a sub woofer amp and moved slowly at first almost like a Zepplin airship almost hanging still in the sky. We were awestruck by this object, once it was spotted, my section layed low on some dunes near the beach, and watched for approximately 14 minutes when the object went from no purpose to rapidly moving south-west for possible 5kms out to sea and then vertical like a blur. We got a clear look at what we could and the area of coast is not populated, and it was a clear night. I mentioned our experience to my flight sargent when we returned to Learmouth. It was dismissed as a USAF Galaxy transport aircraft as we had a few arriving to Learmouth to resupply the Harold E Holt US Navy Base during the week. I can tell you it was no Galaxy. I confide in you as I struggle to this day to understand what it was that we saw."

The sky is clear and weather is good. Looking north-west from 11pm to 11.45pm with the light remaining in the sky, hovering, dashing  dodging the entire time.

"A strange 'shape-shifting' object has been seen hovering over Sydney. The video was taken just two days ago and shows a shimmering UFO floating through the sky. The video was taken by UFO enthusiast Lazlo Novak who uses a combination of webcams and his infrared camera to capture what he believes might be suspicious activity. This particular object was captured using Lazlo's IR camera with the enthusiast putting forward the theory that this meant the UFO was only visible in IR light.
Well we have no explanation-other than that this could well be a fake so it's either that or it really is an unidentified flying object." The source features a 14 minute long video.

Witness said "I was reviewing the footage from a sky watching session recorded on the 17th of December 2014 when I noticed in a few of the frames a triangle shape formation of three UFOs flying north near Taylors Hill, Australia. The objects appear as though they could be lights from a single triangular-shaped UFO craft. The footage was filmed using a pulsar NV/infrared monocular with a 950nm pass filter."

A woman was awakened from her sleep by the sound of her car meowing. She was puzzled that her cat would like take her to her food, but she decided to go. She didn't want her loud meowing to wake the baby upstairs. To do so she had to walk past the glass back door and to her surprise saw a glowing orange reddish orb, bigger than the planet Venus, possibly at plane height and distance from her. She immediately thought to get her glasses to have a proper look. She noticed the light was in a different position and thought 'you have moved to the left.' It then promptly moved back to the right, then in two seconds shot up with incredible speed vertically and disappeared.

"Began by seeing bright star-like glowing object moving across the sky, coming from a northerly direction heading south in the sky in Mosman, Sydney. As a keen aviation and plane enthusiast it displayed no characteristics like a plane and moved with small erratic movements, with a fuzzy halo like glow around it. The object veered off to a westerly direction towards North Sydney.
