About a week after the first encounter the witness again woke in the early hours with the feeling she had to go outside. Again there was a figure in the garden but no object in the paddock this time, the same metallic smell seemed to be present. The same (or similar) 2m tall thin figure seemed to be surrounded by a bright mist effect. It looked to have a one piece silvery suit with a band around the waist. She was not sure if it covered the head, whilst she did not notice the lower legs. It seemed to have long wrap around eyes that sloped up at the outside, also the ears looked flat and pointed. Also present were two smaller rounded figures to either side of the main figure. They were less than a meter tall, fat in the body with small arms and legs. They moved in a jerky fashion as they looked at the ground. One figure had a trowel like instrument which it kept pointing at the ground. The witness had a feeling to follow the figure but on this occasion retreated into the house and locked the door. Looking out the window she was unable to locate the figures. (TUFOIC)


Eight friends were out camping at night when the area around them was lit up like daylight. They saw an oval shaped object about 100 feet above them and as big as a small plane. There was no noise.

The group seemed to become more subdued by the experience., and they were not interested in reporting their sighting or finding out what they had seen. (UFORQLD "Encounter" no 175 p8)

Jun ST LUCIA QLD 1900hrs 30mins CE1

Two women watched a bright light approaching their house and heard a noise like a helicopter. They realised it was a round disk which then proceeded to land in her backyard, which is a very small area. She switched off the dining room light to get a better view. It was the size of a small car. She was amazed how it could have come down without touching the clothes line or the trees. The helicopter hovered over the other side of the house. The daughter, aged 17 went to her room to look out of a triangle window (A frame house) near her book case. As she looked the reflection of the Moon shone on it making it look like a shiny, silver paper.

The object then rose to eye level and she saw yellow/orange lights like holographic swirling. then it went up over the house and flew off in a westerly direction followed by the helicopter. The time was now 1930hrs.

Glennys is still investigating. However, it seems that three streets away a lady hanging out her washing reported a UFO flew over her house and disappeared somewhere down the street. A man phones radio 4BC and claimed he saw a UFO while driving towards Indooroopilly around 1900hrs. (Glennys Mackay.)
