Three starQike objects were sighted by a 60 year old resident. At first they were stationary but then they started to move east from the ranges towards the sea at a steady pace. The last object was left behind, then took off rapidly in Dursuit of the others. (UFORQLDSCC).

UFORA92003 24Decl991 Kelmscott WA 2125hrs
A family reported sighting a bright orange object, like a glowing coal, travelling silently from NE to SE (Armadale), over approximately 3 minutes. A check revealed the police had 2 reports made to them. The flrst at 2100hrs on the 24th and the other at 0015hrs on the 25th. Both sightings were in the Armadale area and attributable to homemade hot air balloons-travelling SW to NE on the prevailing wind. (Brian Richards).

UFORA92004 5 Jan 1992 Kelmscott WA 2200hrs
A group of people noticed a bright, deep orange, oval object travelling silently south to north at 30 degrees elevation. Looking through binoculars they saw “hundreds” of white lights on the underside of the object. One of the group, a pilot, confirmed it had no navigation lights on it. Over 3 minutes it went from the Kwinana area to the Cottesloe region. As it was disappearing another object appeared in the south. lt was also a deep orange colour with many white lights undemeath. It was randomly pulsating. It, too, disappeared over the sea near Cottesloe. (Brian Richards).

UFORA92005 5Jan 1992 Westfleld WA 2200hrs
A man reported seeing 2 deep orange coloured objects, with the second one pulsating. Duration was estimated as 5 minutes, beinq some 1600 metres up and twice the anqular size of Venus. (Brian Richards).

UFORA92006 8 Jan 1992 Blcton WA 2215hrs
A man reported seeing a white light which was too slow for a meteorite and too fast for a satellite. lt travelled SSE to NNW for about a minute. It had a reddish tinge to it. (Brian Richards).

UFORA92007 12 Jan 1992 Claremont WA 0612hrs
A person called in to report “...a black circle, most peculiar and the amazing thing is- it changed from a green to a sort of polished green. No noise at all. Completely silent. l’ve never seen anything like it. The Sun hadn’t risen so the green wasn’t reflection or anything. The black wasn’t silhouette because it wasn’t towards the east where the Sun would come up...” Said to have been 1000m away and 300m high. The disc remained at the same level in the sky and took 4 minutes to move from SE to west. (Brian Richards).

UFORA92008 Dec 1991 Hopetoun VIC Crop circle
Farmer, Ken Price, and his son Noel, discovered 6 circies in their wheat crop in December. The sizes ranged from 2- 3.5m, with one being an oval shape 6.5m across. (“The Age”, Melbourne, country edition December 31, 1991). 1 secured a colour photocopy of the photograph taken by the newspaper. It shows the typical swiried UK Crop circie, apparently swept anti-clockwise. This direction of swirl continues to be the way Australian circles are swirled if found in crop paddocks. Circles found in swamps have all been clockwise in swiri direction to date.

UFORA92009 Jan 1992 Gramplans VIC CE3/photo
A radio news item told how a 16 year old giri claimed to have seen and photographed an ‘alien’ in the Grampians. (Peter Jones.) Later, another news item reported that the photographs were of a plastic mannequin. (Ray Brooke).

Two men were near the end of an access road on the edge of the national park, having a light meal, when lights approached them. The lights frightened the men sufficiently that they vacated the site leaving their dinner behind. The lights then apparently chased their car for some 40km until the men turned off the main road. The lights continued on following the road to Barraba. (Bill Chalker/UFOIC).

A girl, of about age 10, was playing with another girl when they saw some 20-24 discs fly overhead at tree top height. They seemed to fly in 3 or 4 rows of 5-6 objects. The witness felt that the objects seemed to hover momentarily when overhead. She described them as about 6Tm in diameter and dull grey metallic in appearance. (Bill Chalker/ UFOIC) .

UFORA92014 Early 70’s to date Sydney NSW CE4 Level ? S4/P4
A complex series of UFO/visionary episodes with an abduction/religious context. Witness ïChristineW was for a time a person living in the streets of Sydney. ExPeriences include examination, Zimplants”, messaqes etc. (Bill Chalker/UFOIC).

UFORA92015 12 Dec 1991 Werrls Creek NSW 0100hrs CE1 Level 7 S4/P4
During intermittent sleeting rain, a woman observed a strange light near Duri. After passing through Currabubula, she reports that the lights apparently passed over her car, a strange sound was heard, and there were 2 brief episodes of loss of power and lights with the car. At one point the lights were below a hill line in an adjacent paddock, which may eliminate one prosaic source-a new Tv tower with lights near Mount Soma which were switched on for the first time a few days earlier. At least one other woman saw strange lights earlier in the week and is now atisfied that the tower lights were the answer. Another witness, male, possibly on the same night had a similar experience including car effects, but he reportedly eventually reconciled the event to the tower lights. (Bill Chalker/UFOIC).

UFORAD2016 12Jan 1992 Eastern Suburbs, Sydney NSW 0030hrs Low Level ? S3/P4
There were widespread sightings of a formation of up to 12 lights slowly moving across the inner city area.

They remained stationary for many minutes before being eventually lost to view. Checks with RMF. Police Airwinq, Mascot, airnort, etc have faiied to come up with an explanation. (Bill Chalker/UFOIC).

A couple observed, and filmed on video, for a number of minutes, a bright white light moving near a storm front. Bill Chalker has examined the video in detail. Aircraft and helicopters appear to be an unlikely explanation, but investigations are continuing. Another family nearby witnesssed classic ball lightning, inside a house, apparently on the same evening. (Bill Chalker/UFOIC).

UFORA has auspiced a project titled: “The Australian Circle Phenomenon Research Project” since 1989. The project aims to collect and disseminate information on crop circles from around the worid, and has contact with the UK Centre for Crop Circles Studies, and US and Canadian researchers. The project maintains a large collection of material on cirdes, as well as books. This information is open for interested individuals to access

There is now a company in Victoria which is making material on crop circles available to interested Austraiian researchers. The following material may be obtained from P.C.C. S. Pty Ltd, PO Box 1146, Mountain Gate, Vic 3156. All Drices are Australian dollars.

A number of overseas circles researchers have been in touch to inquire about Australian crop cirdes. An information package has been prepared and forwarded to them.

An article on Australian crop circles is scheduled to appear in a near future edition of the UK Magazine “Fortean Times” written by myself.

English crop circle research Colin Andrews will return to Australia in April to conduct another series of lecturers. (PCSS.)


David Webb, a long-standing US researcher has been maintaining a computerised listing of CE3/4 cases for many years. Recently the Australian segment of the listing has been reviewed for him by myself.

A number of UFO researchers met in Adelaide on 23 Feb for a 3 hour workshop on the theme of gAIien abductions.” The aim of the afternoon was to allow a wide ranging discussion on this topic. An Adelaide aMuctee attended and told of some of her experiences. Ail who attended agreed it was a most useful meeting, and increased networking will be one outcome.

US professor, David Jacob’s new book, “Secret Life:The Structure and Meaning of UFO Abductions” is due out shortly. It is expected to cause quite a debate amongst the growing number of individuals researching abductions.

I recently had an opportunity to review what is currently known about the topic of abduction “implants.” examples do exist of these implants and have been scientifically examined, according to US researchers. However, very littie has been published in the UFO literature about them. My review article will appear in an upcoming edition of the Intemational UFO Reporter.


The December 1991 Issue of the US magazine “Popular Mechanics” carried an article by Gregory T Pope investigating America’s next generation of “Secret” aircraft.

These aircraft have now been seen by many people around test bases in the US and can be divided into 3 categories:

1. Several types of triangular shaped aircraft, with wing spans ranging from 2040m.

2. A high speed, high altitude aircraft, with a pulsing type engine noise. There is talk of Mach 6 speeds.

3. A black, boomerang, 200-250m across, aeroform which moves and manoeuvres at Tncredibly low speeds. It is silent at low altitudes, with a pattem of random white lights on its bottom.


Bill Chalker, of Sydney, wishes to have us advise, that in future, his New South Wales investigations will be undertaken under the ‘UFOIC’ banner - an informal network. Bill advises that his former group, UFO Research (NSW) (1977-1991), which UFOIC is a continuance of, is in no way related to the new UFO Research (NSW), which was established in November 1991, in association with ACUFOS. Bill stresses that he is not connected to this new UFOR(NSW) or ACUFOS.


Vallee, J. 1991. ZRevelations.” New York. Ballentine.

The latest offering from Jacques Vallee is an exploration of MJ-12, Meier, Cooper, Lazar, Bennewitz and English. He reviews Ummo, Pontoise, Rendelsham, Gulf Breeze and the Philadelphia experiment, amongst other things. Vallee araues that none of the above. as Dresentiv understood. Drovides an answer to the true UFO Dhenomenon.

Somebody had to call a halt to the current, mainly unchallenged, outbursts of “cover-up” claims which have been sweeping the world, including Australia in 1991. Vallee has risen to the occasion.

Whilst reiterating his theme that the phenomenon is linked to some non-human consciousness which manipulates space and time. Vallee suqqest it is time to return to basics in our research.
