UFORA ABDUCTION TELEPHONE HOTLINE SERVICE
On the October 12, 1992 NASA initiated its 10 year, US$ 100 million, search for signs of extraterrestrial life. At the same time UFORA launched a media search for additional Australian abductees. Prepared bymyself; edited, printed and distributed by Vladimir Godic, a media release was forwarded to 115 media outlets in both the print and electronic media.
The end result was that the Hotline number received nearly 60 calls, out of which 11 were in fact people reporting previously unknown abduction events. Most of these abduction cases, together with general UFO reports, are listed below. Many of the abduction episodes are now being followed up, and the individuals concerned are being interviewed in-depth by a number of UFORA associates in various states.

An Adelaide woman, L. C., woke in the night from what she at first took to be a dream. She felt she was awake in bed. Her bed was situated in middle of the room. There was a flash of light and the whole bedroom scene felt like she was moving/seeing through treacle . Time appeared to be moving in slow motion. Three creatures came in to the room moving slowiy towards her. She screamed. The next thing she knew it was moming. Thus there was a period of ZMissing time. After that she needed to sleep with the light on and her sleep patterns became disrupted. Years later she came across the book Communion. She then knew it was the same thing. (UFORA phone-in.

Two people were in a vehicle travelling west on the Lyell highway. The passenger observed an object in the north- westem sky. After a few minutes he pointed it out to the driver. They traveiled on a few more kilometres until the driver stopped the car for a better look. He saw a dark, cylindrical shape in the north, about Moon width. lt was steadily travelling to the east. The colour was grey in the bright Moonlight, whilst it seemed to have a flame effect at the rear. The strangest thing was the 4 or more orange lights travelling along at the rear of the cylinder. These lights suddenly started darting about around the cylinder. They kept this up until the object was well away to the north-east. The lights seemed to merge with the cylinder and they just couldnt see it any more. (TUFOIC)

Whilst on an, Hobart bound, Australian Airlines flight 405, arriving at 1247 hrs, a passenger saw an unusual sight Some 10 minutes out of Hobart at an elevation of 18000ft he noted an intense black shape to the west The aircraft at this stage was over Miena (Great Lake.) It looked to be a long, thin, black shape of large size but at a considerable distance. The shape was visible between some layers of cloud which could be seen to be moving as opposed to the shape which was stationary. The aircraft continued its descent into Hobart and the witness had to look back to the rear to keep the shape in view, it being obscured from view by hills west of the Derwent (est 2/3 mins from airport.) Checks have revealed the air crew saw nothing. The witness says people ahead of him were looking at the black shape. However, a press release with coverage on radio and newspapers failed to uncover additional witnesses. The weather had been fine with some cirrus cloud moving in from the west. The Met Bureau suggested alto-cumulus cloud as an explanation. However, no cloud of this type was reported in their observations that day. (TUFOIC)

Details in the report make it almost certain that the Dayfilm shows fuel from the distressed flame which had been ignited. 2pp.

The orange lights mystery over Sydney came to a head on Tuesday the November 17. Hundreds of people reported seeing a formation of lights, which was also captured on a home video.
Police investigations revealed these lights were caused by hot air balloons. As mentioned earlier, this explanation was favoured by Bill Chalker for many of the orange lights. How this relates to the Perth and Adelaide reports of orange lights, is not yet clear.
