UFO The Westall 1966 UFO Incident Australia

It’s one of Australia’s best known UFO mysteries and even today, 58 years after the incident, the people who experienced it first-hand remain steadfast in their conviction to find the truth.

The incident itself took place on April 6th, 1966 when multiple people, including students and teachers from Westall High School and Westall State School, observed three metallic objects silently maneuvering through the skies over Melbourne in the Australian state of Victoria.

According to witness accounts, the objects, which bore no obvious markings, landed briefly in a paddock near the schools before taking off again and disappearing. An investigation of the field afterwards revealed the presence of several large circles of flattened grass.

“It was so unusual … it occurred in broad daylight and had been seen by so many people landing on the ground, before taking off again,” said researcher Shane Ryan.

“The event was obviously sizeable enough to muster a big response. Whatever it was that happened led to government agencies examining the site and taking soil samples.”

Interest in the case would later skyrocket after several of the witnesses claimed to have been visited by dark-suited officials who warned them not to speak out about what they had seen.

Joy Clarke, who was 12 at the time of the incident, vividly recalls what happened that day.

“I was in class when students rushed in and told us the story,” she said. “We rushed down to the oval and I saw three flying saucers on that day. My personal belief is they weren’t of this world.”

“They were definitely from somewhere else because I have never seen anything like it at all.”

Now in their 70s, the school’s former pupils remain adamant that what they saw was the real deal.

“It is probably in the top five mass sightings worldwide,” MUFON’s Clarke Watson told The Sunday Age.

“In Australia it’s not really widely known but overseas it gets referenced a lot because it was seen by children that, when independently interviewed, told the same story.”

“There were also a group of teachers that actually claimed to have seen it, there were photos that were claimed to have been taken, and there was government intervention very early on.”

    There was a similar incident that happened at a school in Africa, I forget the date, but was a long time ago. All those ex students still stand by what they witnessed also. It begs the question, what was the purpose of these craft and also the men in black.
