Westall ‘66: A Suburban UFO Mystery - Mass Australian UFO landing and sighting (50th anniversary)

The Westall UFO encounter is an event that occurred on 6 April 1966 in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Around 11.00 am, for about 20 minutes, more than 200 students and teachers at two Victorian state schools witnessed an unexplained flying object which descended into a nearby open wild grass field. At approximately 11.00 am on Wednesday, 6 April 1966, a class of students and a teacher from Westall High School were just completing a sport activity on the main oval when an object, described as being a grey saucer-shaped craft with a slight purple hue and being about twice the size of a family car, was seen. Witness descriptions were mixed: Andrew Greenwood, a science teacher, told The Dandenong Journal at the time that he saw a silvery-green disc. According to witnesses the object was descending and then crossed and overflew the high school's south-west corner, going in a south-easterly direction, before disappearing from sight as it descended behind a stand of trees and into a paddock at The Grange in front of the Westall State School. After approximately 20 minutes the object - with witnesses now numbering over 200 - then climbed at speed and departed towards the north-west. As the object gained altitude some accounts describe it as having been pursued from the scene by five unidentified aircraft which circled the object. _____________________________________________ QUFOSR store: More videos: SETI: signals likely caused by Extraterrestrials UFO emails released by WikiLeaks A strange collection of Martian anomalies Best UFO eyewitness testimony ever?
