UFO News Article:

17 December 1954
(Northern Star, Lismore, Australia)

Source: Trove, National Library of Australia, Canberra, ACT,

The whole article:
“ ‘Flying Saucers’ reported by a Nowra Fleet Air Arm pilot are being investigated by Naval Headquarters in Melbourne.

The pilot, Lieutenant O’Farrell, saw two objects which he took to be ‘flying saucers’ when flying at night over Goulburn, N.S.W., on a return trip to Nowra.

He told authorities at Nowra, naval air station and base for the Fleet Air Arm, that he saw what appeared to be the lights of two aircraft when flying at about 285 miles an hour.

He said a ‘saucer’ flew on each side of him, circled his plane, and then drew rapidly away.

At his request the Nowra radar crew fixed his position and reported back that the screen showed an echo of another object moving along his Sea Fury.

This is the first known case in which unidentified objects in the sky have been confirmed by radar.

Authorities ascertained there were no other military aircraft in the vicinity at the time.

The Minister for the Navy, Mr. Francis, confirmed tonight that a pilot from Nowra air station had recently observed two lights on his radar ‘with vague shapes underneath.’

Mr. Francis was commenting on reports today that a pilot from Nowra some months ago had reported seeing two lighted objects flying close to his plane and at a faster speed than his aircraft.

The objects have been described as ‘Flying Saucers’ because their identity is unknown.

Mr. Francis in his statement said, ‘It is a fact that on a night cross country flight from the R.A.N. station, Nowra, on August 3 (1954), a pilot in his aircraft at 13,000 feet observed two lights on his radar with vague shapes underneath.

‘The lights passed ahead of him at a very fast speed. He was at the time flying at 220 knots. The pilot contacted Nowra and advised them.

‘It was later ascertained that the only other aircraft in the vicinity was a T.A.A. Convair.’

Mr. Francis added that the pilot, was in the vicinity of Goulburn when he made his observation.

No further report of the pilot’s discovery had been received yet from R.A.A.F. headquarters.


Dr. S. C. B. Gascoigne, of the Commonwealth observatory, Mt. Stromlo, commenting on Mr. Francis’ statement tonight, said it was highly unlikely and almost impossible that the objects could have been meteorites.

This was because the objects as reported were too low in the sky and had apparently persisted for too long.

Unless the objects were much higher than reported or were due to a ‘meteorological refraction,’ which also was unlikely, their identification was baffling.

The report of the pilot ‘just about ruled out meteorites or hallucinations.’ ”

Focus On the 13 July 1969 Van Horne, Iowa,
UFO Landing Trace Case

Quote from’s “The 1969 UFO Chronology” (
“Neighbors of the family contributed the remarks that their dogs were making a racket that evening. Van Horne stands as one of the best ‘landing effects’ cases on record. This is because it has multiple witnesses, an immediate corroberation of the trace by someone who knew exactly the state of his farm fields, no desire for publicity [in fact a parent who blocked almost all of it], no motivation [in fact, a loss of valuable crop], multiple, early-on-scene investigators with good track records for straight-shooting, and a fairly large and mysterious effect. On some scales of rating ‘trace’ cases, this might be #1.”

Amber Disc Stops, Reverses Direction

North Bay CFS, Ontario, Canada”


The whole UFO case report:
Brad Sparks:
April 12, 1952; North Bay CFS, Ontario, Canada (46.30° N, 79.46° W). (BBU 1108)
9:30 p.m. At 2230 local time, Warrant Officer E. H. Rossell and Flight Sergeant Reg McRae, observed a bright amber disc in the sky. The disc came in from the southwest and moved across the RCAF Station airfield at North Bay, stopped and moved off again in the reverse direction. It then climbed at an angle of 30 degrees at terrific speed and disappeared.

Dan Wilson:
This was a sighting that got the attention of the Canadian Government and prompted them to begin a UFO investigation, Project Second Story. This area of Ontario has had many UFO sightings over the years. The reason might be is that Sudbury, Ontario, just west of North Bay, is very rich in nickel deposits. The International Nickel Company INCO is located here. Tons of nickel powder was shipped to Oak Ridge, Tennessee, for use in the barriers in the gaseous diffusion process in the enrichment of Uranium 235 at the K-25 plant. See: ‘Nickel Powder/Nuclear Weapons, The Untold Story,’ below.” presents U.S. government (U.S. Air Force) documents that pertain to the UFO case.

Focus On the Book, Mystery Stalks the Prairie


The 1976 book (published by T.H.A.R. Institute, Raynesford, Montana) by the authors Roberta Donovan and Keith Wolverton explores the animal mutilation phenomenon.

In this post, I focus on the animal mutilation-UFO connection evidence that is reported on in the book.

Unmarked helicopters are sometimes also reported to be flying over or near (or even landing) where an animal mutilation incident has taken place, according to experienced animal mutilation researchers.

Newsletter Quote:

Number One, January 1978
(Project Stigma, Paris, Texas)

Source: Archives For the Unexplained (, Norrköping, Sweden

Project Stigma was run by the late animal mutilation researcher Thomas (Tom) R. Adams.

Quote from the newsletter issue:

The following listing can in no way claim to be complete. As always, we suspect that we are unaware of many mutilation incidents. Some are reported to law enforcement agencies, but do not surface in the press; others are not reported ‘officially’ at all. We are fortunate to have learned of a few such occurrences through word-of-mouth. It will be noted that in 1977, as in the previous year, mutilations were occurring spottily but steadily, but with nowhere near the intensity of the extensive and inexorable wave of 1975, when hundreds of possible mutilations were reported. Nevertheless, we can draw attention to one important fact – they have yet to cease:


ColoradoCostilla County; 3 cows; unidentified helicopter; nocturnal revolving lights.”

UFO Article (Blog):
“Massive Quantity Of Unreleased UFO
Files Held By New Zealand Government”

By Paul Dean, 14 July 2017
(UFOs – Documenting The Evidence, Melbourne, Australia)

Quote from the article:
“On the 3rd of August, 1985, researcher Timothy Good wrote to the Air Vice Marshal Ewan Jamieson, Chief of the Air Staff, at the Ministry of Defence Headquarters, Wellington, New Zealand, asking what the New Zealand military’s official stance on UFOs was. In a 6th of September, 1985 reply to Good, Wing Commander S. D. White, writing on behalf of Air Vice Marshal Ewan Jamieson, stated:

New Zealand’s Ministry of Defence is not specifically charged with any formal responsibility for investigating UFOs… …and neither is any other government department. The Ministry does however take an active interest in all such reports and within the limitations of its resources conducts investigations as necessary.’

This official statement, and quite a few others like it, was somewhat misleading.

In March, 2017, I accessed Archives New Zealand, which is that country's official national archive and records repository, and entered a series of keywords into the ‘Archway’ search engine. Using the keywords ‘unidentified flying object,’ ‘ufo,’ ‘unidentified flying objects,’ ‘ufos,’ ‘unknown object,’ ‘unknown objects,’ ‘flying saucers’ and the like, I was surprised to see numerous hits displayed in the results. Of course, New Zealand’s government has already released numerous files, so any search results which included these items were expected. What I didn’t expect was a listing of hitherto unknown files, some of which are ‘restricted’ from public access for decades to come. I should state that these unreleased files were not totally unknown to at least a handful of researchers. British based researcher Isaac Koi, for example, discussed the existence of these records some time ago on the internet forum Above Top Secret, and Keith Basterfield mentioned some of the items in various New Zealand focused blogposts in 2010.

The first file of note, which should have been released in 2010, is titled ‘Intelligence – Defence – Unidentified Sightings.’ The record number for this item is ‘244/1/7’ and the date range spans from 1963 to 1976. The current controlling agency of the file is the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF), but the original controlling agency, presumably, will be either a top–echelon division of the Ministry of Defence (MoD), or, one of New Zealand’s armed forces branches. Traditionally, New Zealand’s defence apparatus has, like most nations, always included an Army, Navy and Air Force. Either way, the file metadata gives no clue as to its origin. Moreover, as noted, this file is clearly a MoD item of some sort, and the NZDF is listed as the most recent controlling entity, so the notion that the NZDF released all of its UFO files in 2010 is quite incorrect. Having said that, the file is listed as ‘Open Access,’ so someone in the NZDF has cleared it for release.”
