UFO News Article:
“The R.A.A.F. Investigates Flying Saucers”

9 January 1954
(The West Australian, Perth, Australia)

The whole article:
“The R.A.A.F. today made its first official statement on flying saucers and revealed that it had been investigating saucer reports since 1947.

A spokesman said that in the past few years hundreds of reports had been received and all were treated confidentially.

Each report is investigated by a R.A.A.F. intelligence officer and 24 questions put to the person making the report are tabulated in a two-page ‘report of aerial object observed’ form.

The reports are not published to prevent people from making faked sightings and so that a true and accurate check can be made on similar observations.

Meanwhile, Melbourne’s spate of flying saucer reports continued today when two more were reported.

One man said he saw a shining circular object about 30 ft. in diameter giving out a red vapour as it passed over Malvern, a Melbourne suburb.

A woman late today said she saw what she thought at first was a large yellow star.

The ‘saucer’ stayed low in the sky and in the same position for some time.”

This issue of The West Australian contains another UFO article:
“ ‘Pinkish Light’ Observed At Bayswater”

The whole article:
“Four people sitting on the lawn of a Bayswater house about 11 o'clock last night saw what they think may have been a ‘flying saucer.’

At first they thought the object—‘a pinkish light moving quite fast’—was a falling star.

However, when it hovered for a few seconds and zig-zagged a little, they discounted this theory.

The object then faded out towards the sea in the Scarborough area after a few minutes.

As there was no noise, and the object was overhead at one time, the four people decided that it could not have been an aircraft.”
