BADLWYN, 1966:

A Polaroid photograph of a UFO tipped vertically on a side taken by businessman from his garden a few minutes after 2 p.m on April 2, 1966 above the Melbourne, Australia suburb of Balwyn.

The Victorian Flying Saucer Research Society (VFSRS) of Moorabbin, Australia carefully studied the photograph and environment and concluded the photo showed "no sign of multiple exposure, montage or any other tampering". The photo, copyrighted in 1979 by David C. Knight has been published on page 138 of the book "UFOS: A Pictorial History from Antiquity to the Present."

However, Dr. B. Roy Frieden, professor of optical sciences at the University of Arizona and consultant of the APRO for UFO photographs noted a line of discontinuity suggesting that the image was made out of two different re-photographed photographs.

TULLY, 1966:

Near Tully, in January 1966, a UFO left these landing marks in a swamp. Much latr in England, Dave Chorley and Doug Bower, who heard of this case, thought it would be funny to flatten circles in the crop so that people believe saucers have landed.

Mr. Taylor has been interested in the subject of U.F.O's for the last 25 years, since he first sighted one while living in Sydney. He has photographed the one shown here when in the Blue Mountains at Katoomba in 1972. A copy of one of the two photographs taken is currently published in Mysterious Australia written by Mr. Rex Gilroy. (NEXUS Publishing. P.O.Box 30 Mapleton Qld. 4560.)

I have no information about this picture, except the mention "Cairns, 1979, Australia." Although the object looks more like a rocket or a missile, it is presented as a picture of a UFO. A larger version is here.

SIDNEY 1988:

This is the message emailed to "El Disco" (a web UFO picture collection) regarding the picture:

"Dear Sir/Madam,
After seeing the attached picture (from your sight) I might as well tell you a little story, I'm not a loony, I saw this same thing 2 summers ago when I was in Oz. It's about 2:30pm, very sunny, clear sky , me and my flat-mate in Sydney were out laze'in in the sun when this same looking thing flew out from behind the only cloud in sight. I was wearing ray-bans for the sun so my view was darkened to a deep purple, then suddenly a flash just like on a camera, only it was miles up... I watched for about 2 minutes , then it made an enormous 'Z' path in the sky. (I know this sounds all too common/corny), I couldn't believe how fast it moved, faster than I could follow in the sky with my eye's & shades !!!. Then after watching it move (mile's up) around in a circle that lasted for about another 3 min, I lost it. All this time it has only been a bright light in the midday sun, taking my shades off to double check my eyes and to be sure I haven't been watching a chip in my ray-ban lenses for the last 10 min, I came to the conclusion it was only a satellite reflection and my imagination and my eyes being fouled by the bright sun. Then WOW I saw it flash the suns reflection and it sped across the sky at a massive speed then stopped dead, followed by a faint popping noise. At this point it was about 20 degrees up from me (I'm on a hill, for the breeze!)about 150ft up, it hovered about a cricket field away (guessing from the shadow it made on the surrounding field) and was about the size of my thumb nail. No description of the craft is needed as it is identical (99% sure) to the attached photo. It stayed there for 20 sec's approx.. then very slowly moved to about 2 o'clock from 12 o'clock of my view for another 10 sec's. Just as I blinked it started moving up and away from me, in the time it took my eyes to focus on it, it had almost disappeared straight up... As I said before I am not a loony and DID see this, I even have my flat-mate as a witness to verify he saw exactly the same thing. Hope this hasn't wasted your time, I tend to go on a bit.
Sincerely, Robin.S.Phillips"
