"Mary Adams" and a friend were driving from west to east – passing Honeymoon Gap (10 km west of Alice Springs) when they noticed a bright blue "glow" in the trees at the base of the mountain about 1/2km away. It was very low, and lit up the ground, and Mary believes it had actually landed.

Suddenly the "light" rose up, and moved towards them. They could see it was a solid object, about 40 metres in diameter, with a flat base and a rounded top. It was huge – "the size of a semi-trailer, with lines around the bottom". The blue light formed a "halo" around the craft, and as it "floated" overhead they could hear a "whirly noise". It was about 11.20pm and as the object followed them "above the car" for a short time, they felt they were being "watched". They were relieved when it flew back over the hills towards Pine Gap.

TUFOIC received, over a fortnight, calls regarding the discovery of "UFO slime" in gardens and a roadside cafe. The substance appears to be clear and jelly-like, although the two Kempton deposits disappear unless kept moist. The slime has been found in gardens, on concrete and on lawns., Reports have come from the North West and North of the state. In no report has any associated UFO phenomenon been reported, following initial publicity it seems that a UFO group was to place to lodge slime sightings. Samples were obtained and analysis revealed one sample was mollusc eggs, and another to be a substance from potting mix. TUFOIC

01.11.96  BEENLEIGH,  QLD  2100 hrs  (IDENTIFIED: FLARES)

Witness at Beenleigh was hanging out washing on the evening of  01.11.96.  She heard leaves rustling in nearby banana trees.  When she turned to investigate, she observed a huge red light above the trees.  The red light was moving slowly across the top of the banana trees.  When the Witness looked at herself she was also glowing red.  The light moved slowly over the house to the other side.  There was no noise.  The next day she noticed the top leaves of the banana leaves were burnt.  She phoned our Hotline and an investigation was conducted.  The lights were identified at the investigation.  Our investigators spoke with her next door neighbours, who informed us that the red lights were flares, because one of them had landed in their backyard and landed under their car, which almost caught fire.  The police were called in.  The police found children in a nearby park setting off the flares.

These three sighting were very similar when reported.  The witnesses observed one large white object with several small white objects moving around the larger one.  I have also observed this phenomena, and truly believed that 15 UFOs were going to land on top of my car.  An investigation was conducted.  The UFOs were identified as the Southbank Park spotlights.

Three Witnesses in a Belmont park experienced a CE3. Whilst looking toward the northern sky they observed a long object coming from the north to north east (from the Gateway Bridge area).  The UFO was high in the sky and moved slowly in their direction.  When it was directly over them, they noticed the light on the inside of the UFO was green and the outside lights, surrounding the perimeter of the UFO were Blue and Red.  The UFO beamed them (shone a spotlight on them).  When this occurred, they heard a humming noise, the temperature changed from cool to warm and they felt as if they were in a trance.  The UFO moved south to  south east (toward the Redland Bay area).  An investigation is underway for this encounter.

Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 2
Shape of objects: Round-Disc shaped
Weather Conditions: clear

Description: I was standing at the top of coopers park and I saw two disc like shapes flying at very fast speeds crisscrossing each other-over Sydney.

It lasted five minutes-and was very clear-they definitely were not bats or birds or known flying machines-and within minutes a helicopter arrived and torches were shined from a nearby point.

They were black yet very luminous and visible
I am still amazed no-one else reported this seemingly.
I am pretty sure I was not imagining.
