- HBCC UFO Research Note: In the newspaper article it mentions
a gentleman by the name of Tim Webster who was one of the main eyewitnesses
to this unusual event. Plus there were many, many more people who watched
the strangeness in the sky. I called Mr. Tim Webster at his home in Australia

- "I was really hoping they were going to land. I

- Local pizza shop manager Ned Bulic also took phone pictures
and said: "They were definitely alien UFOs. Nothing else could have

- Police contacted Melbourne Airport after reports came
in from Hallam to Boronia but there were no anomalies on the radar.
