Commencing in 1973, and ending in 1987, a series of unusual episodes have been recalled by a male reporter. These include a poltergeist-like event and two bedroom paralysis occurrences.

A bright light was observed for over two hours by a police constable and a clerk of Council. They described it as a very bright “star”, at times silvery and shiny. Through binoculars it appeared to be like a “wine decanter”. Identified as Venus. (UFOR(FNQ).

UFORA90019 QB90002 1 Jan 1990 Malanda QLD 2050hrs Med Level A S4/P5
A couple noted that light was entering their bedroom window. The man involved looked out of the window and noted a light source to the north-west. At this time their three grandsons were watching television in the house, but no interference was seen on the TV. All five people then went outside where they saw a red oval light approach to a point 60 degrees elevation, then stop. Its distance at this point was estimated at 200m and its height as 450m. Although the object was very bright they could look at it without discomfort. Some 45m above this light mass was another smaller light, white in colour. Both moved as one unit. Some 30 seconds later the object moved away at about a 44 degree angle to its initial approach, and went over the horizon in 5-7 seconds. Total duration of event two minutes. Two other independent groups of people viewed the same object from nearby locations. Investigation has not been able to identify the object. (UFOR(FNQ)).

A man saw a “small silver bright thing” on top of Pidgeon Hill. As the sky went dark it became a bright white light. In addition, he saw another bigger light higher in the sky. The smaller light moved around, appearing to enter the object and re-emerge on a number of occasions. Some four hours later the big light shot off at speed, then came back again before finally leaving. (UFOR(FNQ)).

A couple were travelling by van when they noticed a shiny silver thing down the side of a mountain, an estimated 1.5km away. It looked to be some 18m in diameter and seemed to be resting on legs. They stood and watched it for some 25 minutes before deciding to leave. Returning along the same road at 0900hrs the next day, they noticed the object was no longer there. (UFOR(FNQ)).

A female nurse was driving home from the hospital where she worked when an incident happened near a shopping centre. She was driving alone and stopped at a red light. No one was crossing and there was no other traffic in the area. About 150 metres past these lights she suddenly found herself 5km further along the same road but travelling in the opposite direction. This change of direction occurred in a fraction of a second. The woman pulled the car to the side of the road and stopped it. She experienced severe nausea, accompanied by rapid and heavy breathing and a severe throbbing pain in her head. A period of some 25-35 minutes appears to be missing from her time schedule. Later she experienced gynaecological problems. (UFOR(Qld).

2. Randles, J. & Fuller, P. Crop circles: a mystery solved. Robert Hale. London. 1990. 255pp. Hardcover.

An excellent review of the crop circles enigma, Dr Meaden s vortex hypothesis as to their cause, and the link between this hypothesis and the UFO phenomenon. Randles and Fuller extend the work of Dr Terence Meaden and apply it to the UFO phenomenon with some extraordinary findings. Their conclusions, which will challenge many ufologists most cherished position that UFO equals alien intelligence, should now be extensively researched and debated. This book and the ideas contained therein are essential reading.
