A journey through the UFO theatre

1973 - Dorrigo Plateau - Tyringham & Dundurrabin area - heavy localised UFO "flap" witnessed by local farmers and resident, investigated by me while I was at the University of New England, who also witnessed some of the sightings. Photo taken.
1976, October 23 - group witnesses and films UFOs during total eclipse observations at Benboyd National Park near Eden
1978 - Bakers Creek Falls, near Armidale - driver has close encounter with UFO and experiences "missing time"
1988 & 1992 Sydney man Peter Khoury has alien abduction experiences - a biological sample - a hair strand - from the 1992 (Berala Sydney) experience was subjected to detailed DNA analysis which revealed very unusual results (see my "Hair of the Alien" book (2005))
1995 December 28 - major close encounter & sightings in Gosford Central Coast area - witnesses include police - UFO seemed to be sucking up water.
1998 August 10 Quirindi - witnesses observed "dumb bell" shaped object and smaller object issuing "angel hair" - fine white material like spiders web which evaporates and disappears. Similar to my own experience in 1969 at Grafton and striking French cases in 1952.
2007 - January 7 - security guard at Baulkam Hills Sydney factory site captures UFO on photo. Object moves away quickly and disappears
2007 January 26 (Australia Day) Earlwood Sydney - nurse and family witness close encounter with UFO which moves below roof line of units and between their unit and neigbours. Some sort of "communication" occurs during encounter.

2008 April 9 far north coast near Qld border - woman witnesses UFO on road near her house - close encounter
with even a pilot reporting to me his striking encounter with two UFOs that affected his
aircraft while flying near the Chipping Norton area back in 1994. This was his second sighting which he had kept quiet about because he thought it might affect his pilot's licence. It turned out I had investigated his first sighting he had with a friend back in 1991. He told me, "Amazingly, you advised us at this time that we would probably see another incident in our lifetimes."
The UFO theatre often delivers some interesting paydirt making the whole circus worthwhile.
