UFOs visit Grampians
December 13, 2002
The Grampians has been identified as a hot spot for unidentified flying objects.
The latest issue of The Australian UFO Bulletin reports on a series of ongoing sightings in the national park area.
Investigator Paul Norman writes that the sightings have been reported since May and initially involved a large white-lighted object, a pale yellow object and smaller active luminous objects.
Mr Norman said the patterns of sightings had recently changed and the large white object had not been seen since October 15.
The number of smaller objects spotted, however, had increased with as many as 20 at a time appearing in various formations and movements, he said.
"The nature of their activity has included blinking or signalling each other as well as manoeuvring around in the valley."
The yellow-colored object has displayed 35 or more small, equally-spaced red or black lights within its circle, the article reports.
Mr Norman said witnesses had been attending the viewing location on a nightly basis to monitor the strange sights.
