UFOs in the daily Press:

The "mysterious airship" wave in the New Zealand Press, 1909:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Tuapeka Times, New Zealand, Volume XLI, Issue 5664, page 3, on August 7, 1909.


The airship appears to be still in the air. Locally there has been no visitation of that mysterious undulating light during the present week to record. The Otago Daily Times Kelso correspondent gives a very circumstantial account of its appearance in that district on the 24th July. It was viewed, says the report, by ten or twelve Dunedin tradesmen who all agree that it was an airship. They distinctly saw the cigar shaped balloon with a carriage suspended below. The headlight was very powerful and was white in colour. After circling round for some time it went off in the direction of the Hokonuis, returrning about 11 p.m. towards the Blue Mountains.
