Narratives:

[Ref. kb1:] KEITH BASTERFIELD:

The Australian ufologist indicates that on April 7, 1978, in Dayborough, Qld, at 1730hrs, after bogging his car, a hunter saw two figures walking 100 meters away from him. Wearing white jumpsuits, they were 120 centimeters tall, and human in appearance. After the figures stared at him, the hunter left the area.

Keith Basterfield indicates the source as "UFORQLD Newsletter Apr/May 78."

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Dayborough, Queensland, Australia, on April 7, 1978, at 17:30, after bogging his car, a hunter saw two figures walking 100 meters away from him. They wore white jumpsuits, and were about 120cm tall, and human in appearance. After the figures stared at him, the hunter left the area.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "Keith Basterfield."

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on April 7, 1978, at 17:39, in Dayboro, Queensland, Australia, objects were observed, electromagnetic effects were noted, an unidentified object at close range and its occupants were observed by one witness on a road.

The sources are indicated as Webb, David, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports; Aerial Phenomena Research Organization, APRO Bulletin, APRO, Tucson; Hatch, Larry, *U* computer database, Author, Redwood City, 2002.

Points to consider:

Human stereoscopic vision, allowing to estimate distances or sizes of known objects, does not exceed about 50 meters. The alleged entities were said to be at about 100 meters. Maybe they were a bit further away and their height was then taller than 1.20 meters. They are said to have been human looking. The witness apparently did not care to check who they were. There was no UFO, no particular strangeness with the alleged entities. So it was possibly a confusion, in which for some reason, two people appeared weird to a distant witness.
