MELBOURNE, Sun. - Witnesses said today they thought they had seen human figures in a flying saucer. They saw the figures through portholes in the saucer they said. Six people reported having seen a pear-shaped, green object over East Malvern and Carnegie at 12.40 a.m. today.
Mr David Reese, 18, clerk, said: "I was saying goodbye to friends when I heard a noise like the dial tone in a telephone. I saw an oval-shaped object about the size of a railway carriage travelling in a curved arc from north to south. "It travelled at a fantastic speed, yet appeared to be moving slowly, as if time and speed had become distorted."
"It gave out a weird orange light. When the shape reached the lowest point in the arc, I could definitely see in the object vague shapes that looked like human busts. The aircraft looked as if it were made of glass. You could see into but no entirely through it. Yellow vapor or flame came from it. The machine accelerated, and in another second or so it disappeared.
"It was 50 yards away and within 50 or 60 feet from the ground. One moment it was there before me, and the next it was gone, shooting out yellow flames from the sides and underneath. Through what looked like portholes or windows there were reflections of some sort which resembled people."
