The Adelaide Advertiser newspaper of 30 January 2014 carried a headline “Mysterious green light seen in sky off Adelaide coast.”


The story told how residents of sea front suburbs of Adelaide, including Tennyson, West Beach and Hallet Cove had reported sightings on the previous night.( Latitude 34.9 deg south; 138.6 deg east..)

The light in the sky was described as white or orange/red, or green in colour. It was said to be “high in the sky” and was seen about 2200hrs in the western sky. There was no associated sound.

It was also seen from country South Australia, including Beachport (latitude 37.5 deg south; 140 deg east.)

In other words, although the headline said it was seen from Adelaide suburbs it was actually seen over a much wider area of our state.

The Astronomical Society of South Australia suggested the light was either a meteor or a satellite re-entry. This fits all the known data in the newspaper article.

A MYSTERIOUS light spotted off the Adelaide coast was likely a bright meteor or satellite, astronomy experts say.

Residents at Beachport, Tennyson and Hallett Cove reported the light to police, describing it as white, orangey-red or green and “high in the sky” shortly before 10pm last night.

The Astronomical Society of SA said this morning the sighting was most likely a bright meteor, but if it lasted an extended amount of time it might have been a satellite re-entering.

The latter are less common than bright meteors and their light lasts longer due to their slower speed.

Police last night took to Facebook to say they had received multiple simultaneous reports of a strange light in the sky from as widespread as the Yorke Peninsula, West Beach and Beachport.

The light was described as and police said it did not appear to have been a flare or distress beacon.

They did however have some fun with their readers, predicting that “(it) was most likely a meteorite … or aliens.”

This is the second unexplained sighting in three months, after dozens of people reported a mysterious light in the sky in November , which astronomy experts said was likely the planet Venus.

UFOSA Note: Another “low flying planet” according to News and News scientists ?


Here is another excellent example of what a UFO would appear to be like from two photos said to be taken near the Myponga Reservoir in March 2011.

In one frame a UFO object or “speck” appears, the reason for taking the photo in the first place.

Now, a quick snap of another frame, and WHIZZO : the object or speck has done the magic disappearing act.

UFOSA received a report by a qualified security officer that a

Circle of Pulsating Blue Lights

to the south of central Adelaide was seen on Monday night 5 August 2013.

Apparently there was a pair of red lights some distance apart and a larger number of blue lights were flashing on and off IN CONSECUTIVE SEQUENCE within a circle.

No noise was heard and the distance from the viewer’s position was at least several hundred metres away over the nearby Gulf, west of the area known as Mullawirratingga (translated into alien invader language as “Christies Beach”).

For reasons and confidentiality, no further information about the witness or their report is included.

(Some in the security, law enforcement and scientific research are apprehensive about the effects of reporting information about UFO’s since this may affect their employment or record in some deleterious way.)

Nerf Surfs Night Sky in Mount Barker SA

Saturday 10 November 2012

UFOSA received a report of a “nerf ball sized” orb of light travelling parallel (horizontal) to ground level in a suburb of Mount Barker South Australia at about 5:30 a.m. on Monday 5 November 2012.

This happened in a period of extreme electrical storm activity in South Australia with about 170,000 lightning strikes recorded by the nation-wide system of 9 automatic monitoring stations.

We could easily admit this as possible St. Elmo’s Fire or Ball Lightning except for the fact that the object seemed to travel for more than a few metres and did not dissipate.

Power lines are in the area where the “nerf ball” light was sighted.

What ever happened to Frederick Valentich, the pilot who disappeared over Bass Strait
immediately after reporting a UFO? Learn the latest information from someone who is still
looking into it…..and a whole lot more.
Did you know a UFO may have landed in Victoria in 1966? It left behind some remarkable evidence.

Have you heard about the “Westall Incident”? Have you seen the film? Meet the researcher featured in the documentary and hear about the eye witness testimony.


See informative presentations from some of Australia’s finest, published, UFO researchers as they give us updates, film clips and reviews about the latest in UFO and Paranormal Activity.

Four interstate speakers:
Dominic McNamara from SydneySecretary, The UFO and Paranormal Research Society of Australia.
Over the years, the Society has found need to investigate certain reports more closely than others. Why? Disseminating this information and the tools used to do so is changing within the Society. We are now looking into new ventures for displaying information to a wider public audience through the use of video recreations according to the reports and the evidence, alone.
Some of these cases will be highlighted during the presentation. Some filming clips will be presented as opposed to pure dialogue. Audiences are invited to make up their own minds about these cases.
Larraine Cilia from Sydney
President, UFO and Paranormal Research Society of Australia.
  1. A personal journey and comparison to classic cases from all over New South Wales
  2. A Society’s Journey from The UFO Society of Western Sydney through to the cross-disciplinary approach to all things Paranormal Covered by The UFO & Paranormal Research Society of Australia
  3. What do we hope to achieve?
Shane Ryan from Canberra
The 1966 Westall Flying Saucer Incident
  1. A brief outline of my background and the reasons for beginning my Westall research.
  2. A presentation of the timeline of the Westall Incident highlighting the major elements of the sighting.
  3. A focus on the description of the UFO(s) and of the circle(s) and other traces.
  4. A statistical summary of the witnesses, who they were, what they saw, and where they saw it.
  5. A summary of the local, state and federal government agencies’ responses to the Westall Incident.

  7. A look-back at how the Westall ’66 documentary came about, and the opportunities and challenges it provided. A look-forward to up-coming film treatments.
  8. Conclusions and ongoing challenges.
  9. Time for discussion and Q and A.
Andrew Arnold from Melbourne
Founder, Victorian UFO Action.
UFO Research in Victoria
Andrew Arnold’s (Victorian UFO Action) presentation will feature his group’s recent excellent research on the famous 1978 Frederick Valentich disappearance. In addition he will speak about the VUFOA’s aims, mission and what they have to offer, including the only YouTube UFO show made in Australia. He will also cover current Victorian UFO cases, and explore the question “UFOs – what are they, and are they extraterrestrial?”

Stars Light Stars Bright

Sunday 23 October 2011

UFOSA received a call on Saturday night 22 October 2011 at 10:30 p.m. alerting us to the presence of a bright “star like” object, surrounded by other similar bright objects, to the East North East of Adelaide, as seen from one of the coastal suburbs in northwest Adelaide.

We will check the STAR CHART for the evening and try to determine if it could be a low-flying hovering planet with associated moons or some geostationary space debris.

It should be noted that in the 1950’s and 1960’s, there were time lapse photographic coverage of the night sky with fixed motion pictures cameras taking periodic shots perhaps every 10 minutes.

The resulting roll of film contained a swirling motion picture show with various stars and planets forming the swirling motions.

HOWEVER, in the midst of some of these sessions were very unusual stationary bright lights, in a time frame of the “space age” when there were few if any geostationary human satellites, aircraft, rockets or weather balloons.
